There I said it! I think that Orla Kiely is one of those brands that has suffered a bit from over exposure in recent years, mainly as a reult of the ubiquity of the handbag line. But I love love love the Orla Kiely homewares line. I don’t know what it is that appeals to me about the quirky designs and the colours that shouldn’t work together but somehow do. Anyway I can’t get enough of the mugs in particular and here are some of my favs:
I also covet the bowls, jars, containers, jugs I could go on. I’m not so sold on the textiles and living range however I did get some great curtains in beige with the stem print for 20 euro in Michael Guiney’s, however they aren’t Orla Kiely so I don’t think that I have over done it……yet!
