I know Orla Kiely’s retro prints are everywhere, but I still like ’em. I’m hankering after the stem duvet set for my bedroom and I love the ceramic storage jars, below – a row would look amazing in my kitchen.
However, as is often the case with things I lust after, they’re not cheap. At £20 minimum for the smaller ceramic jars (at John Lewis and Heals), I’m not likely to realise my dream any time soon.
But that’s okay, cos I’ve just found these new ceramic canisters (above). With a wooden lid and a very Orla kiely-esque retro print, they’re just £5 each from Matalan (instore and online now from www.matalan.co.uk). So, you could buy four for the price of one Kiely jar!
I’m planning to do just that – and I won’t just confine them to the kitchen. I reckon they’d look nice in a living room to hold bits and bobs like stamps and keys; or on a bedroom shelf or dressing table to hold hair bobbles, safety pins and buttons. What would you do with yours?
