Understated and utterly gorgeous is the only way to describe this Italian-inspired collection of little linens.If bold, bright colours aren’t your thing, and you’d prefer your baby’s nursery to purvey a sense of calm, your heart is surely racing at the sight of these delightful linens from Tulip & I. There’s barely a primary colour to be seen among the delicate pale pastels and subtle accentuating stripes.
Canadian-based Tulip & I specialises in charming cot quilts and beautiful blankets. The cot quilts are a generous size, made from one hundred per cent washed linen, with two layers of unbleached cotton batting, and backed in fine Italian cotton shirting. Continuing the Mediterranean theme is the sweet Italian nursery rhyme placed just so on the quilt. Handmade and hand screen printed, the quilts are CAD$140.
There are co-ordinating toddler pillows, as well as this stunning nursing pillow, which can later be used as a decorative accent in your child’s room, for CAD$70.
The charm of La Mia Copertina (My Little Blanket) is not lost on me – it’s the perfect accessory for a bassinet, stroller or cot. The blankets come with a drawstring pouch for CAD$138.
And if it’s not enough to deck out your child’s space with these muted linens, Tulip & I also make a selection of bibs, aprons and sleep sacks. Order from Tulip & I, with international shipping available.
