In the world of design there are many talented designers who start in fashion and then incorporate their designs into items for the home. Both worlds blend seamlessly providing us with exquisite style to surround ourselves with. One of these such designers is Irish born,London based Orla Kiely. She has just celebrated ten years in the industry creating retro inspired clothing, bags,home decor, stationary and even computer accessories. I first noticed her work in the British magazines that I buy when I spotted funky 60's canisters for the kitchen. Then I bought my daughter a journal from Chapters and realized it too was Orla Kiely and then my sister in law and I were discussing her designs recently. I decided to research and see what else was out there by this very talented woman. Her work uses simple graphic images and bold colour. I love the look of the 60's and 70's inspiration reinvented to appeal to us today.She has two beautiful stores in London in Covent Garden and on the King's Road but you can also buy anything on line.
Here below are just some of her great fashions and products available with her fabulous designs on!
As I always say keep your eyes open and look at what is around you- we can be inspired every day and I intend to be, how about you?
