A House Is Not A Home (Without Some Orla Kiely for Target)
When it comes to her kitchen-ready designs, British fashion, handbag and home decor designer Orla Kiely has a flair for walking the line between country kitschy and '70s Mod. The brightly-colored, retro-flavored pear motifs and spot flower prints that abound in her own stationery and housewares collection can also be found in her new home collection for Target, which consists of dinner plates, salad bowls, coffee mugs, placemats, coasters, aprons, serving trays, canisters, filing bins, desk trays and more.
The Orla Kiely for Target collection is selling out at an unprecedented rate (I don't think I've ever seen a Target home collection go this fast!), but here are a few of the wonderful pieces you can still purchase: a 2-tier serving tray, perfect for offering party guests hors d'oeuvres; a medium-sized stoneware canister for storing candy, cookies, flower, or any other perishables; and a lovely sky blue serving bowl to perk up any dinner table.
Orla Kiely Melamine 2-Tier Tray, $19.99; Orla Kiely Medium Stoneware Pear Canister, $17.99; Orla Kiely Flower Serving Bowl, $19.99. Visit Target.com for more information. Available only at Target stores.
