DIY Orla Kiely


I can never have too much Orla Kiely in my life. Those prints....well, I think you already know how I feel about those prints. Suffice to say when I got these postcards as a little bonus gift when I shopped the recent Orla Kiely for Uniqlo collection I knew exactly what to do with them.

However, it wasn't until they were doing a recent clear out at Matches, where I managed to score some super simple frames headed for the skip, that I was able to put my little postcard arrangement into action.

All it took was some white paper, a little bit of blue tac and hey presto, I had the perfect addition to my otherwise dull staircase that had been previously inhabited by two fairly cheesy prints I bought in Poundland in a moment of desperation.

Orla's delightfully retro prints continue to brighten my life and with 'Orla Kiely House' available imminently I'd better start saving my pennies and pounds for the many pieces I will no doubt need in my life. In some ways I wish she'd just stop producing so many awesome things I can't afford but at the same time I'm thinking, 'keep 'em comin' Orla, keep 'em comin'!
