The Modern Baby: Part Three

After Utah-based nursery furnishing company Oilo garnered praise in The Modern Baby: Part One, co-founder Annalisa Thomas offered to share her favorite nursery products and tips as well. Of course, Dwell was eager to pick her brain about the latest in nursery décor.  Thomas and her mother, designer Dorte Anderson, founded Oilo with mothers in mind.

Parents are tired of animals and clowns for kids.
