Interior bargains #5: A splash of Orla Kiely


Interior bargains #5: A splash of Orla Kiely

Orla Kiely Multi Stem Utensils Pot, £22, from a wee stockist in Fowey (but John Lewis stock them too!)

I missed last week's post as I was sunning myself in beautiful Cornwall with Neil & the family - had the best time ever, will share photos on here soon. But here I am, back again on a Sunday eve waiting for the roast to cook with just enough time on the clock to share another interior beaut with you all. 

It's fair to say this certainly isn't a bargain, but the blogasphere is mad for Orla Kiely stock and I'm all over it too. I had to feature it! The retro print of this utensils holder caught my eye whilst in Cornwall on Sunday. We took a trip into the tiny boutiques that lined the quay side in Fowey during our stay and when we saw this in one of the shops on the esplanade, we knew it would make a chirpy edition to our lovely kitchen.

The week before I was on the prowl for a utensil holder - since moving, we hadn't got round to buying a decent one that had enough room for my growing collection of wooden spoons & spatulas and I was umming and ahhing over the Le Creuset stoneware given how durable they are, and how much of a kitchen-snob I want to be! After a visit to the Steamer Trading Cook Shop on Ship St. Brighton (my new fave store) I had a look at one in real life and they just weren't as roomy as I thought. Nor were they that chirpy. Very basic colours and a limited range.

It's always nice to add a splash of pattern here and there for the eclectic vibes, and Orla Kiely's range ticks a lotta boxes. I'm desperate to get my paws on the matching sugar pot!
