Lorena Canals Loving.

Clever Little Monkey was one of the main reasons I was inspired to create Olly’s big boy bedroom. I met them at one of the baby conventions the year before last, and knew I had to work on some kind of collaboration with them after seeing how high quality and versatile their products are!

Without many of their pieces, Olly’s bedroom just wouldn’t have been the same. One of my absolute favourite touches in the bedroom was the layering of carpets. Carpets can be very pricey, especially for in a kids room! Many moms have that constant worry that they will spill and mess, which is totally bound to happen! BUT, Lorena Canals has it covered! Their rugs have been designed to be washed in a conventional washing convenient?

Lorena Canals has come up with rugs that are eco-friendly, machine washable and non-toxic, which is everything I could ever wish for in one product. They are all handmade by artisans using 100% natural cotton and natural dyes with non-toxic chemicals. To go the very extra mile to put your mommy mind at ease, all of the rugs have the AITEX Certificate (Technologic and Textile Institute), which safely authenticates the compliance for products intended for children.

We just adore Olly’s Aztec Natural-Vintage Terracotta rug. It is so incredibly soft – he just loves sitting on it on the floor of his room reading books and playing with his toys. We will often snuggle up on it for story time before bed, and it is just so comfy, even for adults!


(Sadly, we aren’t able to share too much with you photo wise on the bedroom, as it will be featured in the April issue of the SA Garden & Home magazine.)

There are so many gorgeous designs to choose from which means there’s something there for every style bedroom. These can also go beautifully in a lounge! They aren’t just designed for kids. Honestly, I’m quite tempted to steal Olly’s to use in my own bedroom or lounge!!!

Lorena Canals was established in Spain many moons ago, in 1990. Due to their experience and skill, their rugs are absolutely flawless!

Lorena Canals is exclusively distributed by Clever Little Monkey, and you can check out their large collection of rugs here:

For many us, times are tough, and I always encourage parents to really think into the future when purchasing decor items. Find something that is timeless – your kids will change as they grow, and so will their rooms. Rather spend the money on a good quality piece of furniture/decor item that will grow and change with them. An item that will work well in their bedroom when they change things around, change the wall colour, their bed and their linen. Something that can either be passed down or they can take with them when they start their own home one day. When thinking that way, you’ll realize that it is so worth spending that extra little bit of money, rather than having to give away or throw away and update it in the next few years due to characters or poor quality.

Lorena Canals is a brand that will never go out of style. It will never just deteriorate or need to be tossed out. Lorena Canals is timeless, and you just cannot possibly go wrong!

Who else has a Lorena Canals rug in their home? I would absolutely love to see some photos to see how you’ve used them in your living space. You can share your photos with me at

I would love to hear your feedback on what you think of the rug we chose below!
