Special Edition Olli + Ella Rug

Yeah, I know, I know. I am going to show you something in my shop. Horror! But I must disclose that this came about by the demands of my readers, not from me so maybe it won’t feel so commercial and evil now that you know that. Ok, so I posted this rug that I co-designed for Olli + Ella for Aidan’s nursery and the internet blew up (in a good way) because so many people wanted this rug – the room tour even ended up in magazines (Fit Pregnancy in the US and Luna Mum in Germany) and online over at Apartment Therapy. It wasn’t available because it was a custom job BUT for the next 25 days in my little shop you can buy it! And yes, I earn a wee commission if it sells which may earn me a dinner out… I’m not going to buy a yacht so I can go blog on the Riviera. But I want to at least notify you guys since so many loved the rug in my nursery reveal, so now you can have a chance to own a rug that I worked on designing the colorway of. That’s pretty cool, I’m proud of it!


Details: Colors – A little monty aqua, a splash of ecru, a hint of white, some sunny yellow and a dash of our warm musk. Size – 100cm diameter. Material – 100% wool. HANDMADE IN ENGLAND.

Psst: You can also buy the matching felt ball garland too for BOYS (or girls) or for GIRLS (or boys!!). Get your rug on right here.

    Whahahahhaaha, Holly………made my Monday, thank you, love the tongue in cheek humour.
    My question is, ” And why not”…… If I see your rug, love it, would like to order one through your shop, why should you not receive…… for the design.

    And I do love the rug colouring but won’t be ordering this one……

    Have a good rest of your day!

    I enjoy all the beautiful things you share here on your blog – it doesn’t matter if it comes with the commission or what. That rug is just so lovely! Happy Monday! xx

    Liebe Holly,

    da du sicher bedeutend besser Deutsch verstehst, als ich Englisch spreche, schreibe ich also auf Deutsch, dass ich
    – zwar einerseits durchaus in Ansätzen nachvollziehen kann, was Leute meinen, wenn sie eine zunehmende Kommerzialisierung von (ehemals erfrischend privat oder im besten Sinne unprofessionell daherkommenden) Blogs beklagen,
    – andererseits aber in deinem Fall ohne jede Einschränkung finde, dass Professionalität und Herz (“magic”, uuuh!) in absolut überzeugender Weise zusammenfinden und dass du mit deinem Blog (und deinen anderen Aktivitäten) auch in dieser Hinsicht ein tolles Modell bist… und für meinen Geschmack also die völlig falsche Adresse für gesellschaftskritisches Geknütter!
    Herzlichen Dank mal so grundsätzlich für das, was du tust, und herzliche Grüße! Tanja

    Liebe Holly,

    du bist eine derartige Bereicherung mit deinen Kommentaren, Ideen, Recherchen und Herzlichkeiten, dass ich als fleißige Blog-Leserin, fast schon ein schlechtes Gewissen habe, weil ich immer nur Input erhalte. Du hast an mir noch nicht einen Cent verdient, obwohl ich seit 2012 fast täglich von Dir profitiere. Deshalb wünsche ich Dir ganz, ganz viel Erfolg mit Deinem Shop, Deinen Büchern, Deinen Produkten, etc.. Ich hoffe, dass sich diese professionelle Arbeit, die Du hier mit uns allen teilst, für Dich auszahlt!

    Herzlichen Dank für diese inspirierende Site, die mich immer wieder neu fasziniert! Stephanie

    I would love if you could put some more rugs in your shop. In one of your house tours a gorgeous round blue and white rug was featured for a living room. I don’t have a great eye when looking at hundreds of rugs and it would be wonderful for someone with a great eye to narrow the choices for me.

    Love the rug, fab colours.
    And I don’t mind your evil commercial post at all! ;)
    I don’t get this fuss about blogging and some form of commercialism not fitting together…it’s all about the atmosphere you create!

    That is such a cute rug! I love all of the fun colors. It’s simple though and not too crazy like some rugs can get.
