The Orla Kiely brand celebrates and shares the Irish designer’s beautiful, simple style. Her creations are inspired by retro graphic repeat patterns, making for a very strong and recognisable style.
From a small collection of bags and accessories the range has grown to include a complete ready-to-wear collection, homeware, travel, stationery and garden accessories.
These gorgeous enamel plant pots feature Orla’s striped petal print and are available in 3 different sizes. They come with matching saucers so you can use them inside or out!
Another favourite of ours is the Striped Petal Flask. This stylish 500ml stainless steel flask will keep your beverages hot whilst you get stuck into the gardening or when out for a brisk walk. Form and function all rolled into one!
Our spangly new online shop is now open!
We are thrilled to be sharing our fantastic collection of designer homeware and gifts with you. We have an array of brands including Mini Moderns, Time Flies Clocks, Spira, Field Notes and our very own Courtyard Boutique ‘made in UK’ limited edition pieces.
There are cushions, clocks, mugs and memo books to name a few. You can treat yourself, your home or find gifts for your loved ones.
So pop in and take a look around, we’d love to hear what you think! Shop now>
So, as promised (a little later than planned ) we have managed to make a start on some hand embroidered cards in honour of the amazing Penguin Threads covers by Jillian Tamale that we coverd in our last post.
As you can see from the image above, we have made a start, please don’t judge us on our speed, we have been very busy of late putting the final touches to some new products for the launch of the site! Helping us on our way with our new project was the lovely Stitchable Stationery pack from Sublime Stitching. Jenny Hart cleverly guides you through the stages and the final result is a beautiful textured card, your very own piece of art that you can send to your nearest and dearest!
Well, we better get back to it and hopefully finish this design quick smart and on to the next! You never know, you may find a little hand made greeting in one of your orders some time soon!
We couldn’t resist sharing this post with you. Some of you may have experienced this wonderful day before, but if not, read on and you will see why the town of Helston down here in Cornwall has been buzzing of late.
Together with hoards of other people, we descended on the streets of Helston yesterday, to experience one of the UK’s oldest traditions, Flora Day. It is a celebration of the passing of Winter and the arrival of Spring, and although the winter weather threatened to return and rain on the day, it held off and we were all able to celebrate in style!
The special event is usually held on 8th May, except when this date falls on a Sunday or Monday, then it is held on the preceding Saturday. The tradition sees couples dancing in their finest, top hats and tails for the men and only the best of ball gowns for the women, as they weave all over town, painting the streets with colour and even passing through private houses and shops.
There were stalls selling Cornish crafts and homemade food, plus a fun fair for the young at heart at the bottom of the town, near the boating lake.
What a day…you should definitely come and join us next year!
What a tasty display of furniture! This bold Kartell installation at Salone could not be any louder, with neon lights and pieces that include Philippe Starck’s Louis Ghost chair you could not wish for more.
