Print on Print: Orla Keily’s Colourful Home

Irish fashion designer Orla Kiely is famed for her iconic and covetable prints. You’re certain to recognize them as they’ve been reproduced for everything from stationary to high-end fashion and accessories. 

She also has a range for Home, which combines her distinctive flair for form and color with her understanding of function and practicality and includes furniture, ceramics, throws, towels, cushions and lighting.

Clearly inspired by mid-century design paired with a dash of ‘utilitarian luxury’, her home in Clapham, London is an explosion of colour and print.

Personally, I’m a fan of her choice in furniture and admire the way she has reinvented design classics by adding her original retro-flavoured prints. She is entirely unfraid of colour and it works to great effect in this enigmatic home.
