Internationally renowned designer Orla Kiely describes her career as 'a journey in pattern and colour'. Her distinctive palette, and graphic and stylized motifs in clean repeat constructions, have won her devoted fans across the world, and have helped to turn, what began as a small British business designing bags, into a global fashion, accessories and homeware brand. Following the success of her first book, Pattern, House opens the door on Orla's own home for the first time, and offers inspirational insights into using pattern and colour, mixing old and new and turning a house into a liveable home. The second half of the book explores a series of beautifully photographed case studies of some of the mid-century modern homes she most admires. 'I have always been inspired by architecture and interiors so the move into furniture and homewares was completely natural,' Orla says. 'To me, the home is where we can truly express our style and personality, where we can be playful.'
