Orla Kiely (and Other New Details) in the Kitchen

The Target near me finally put out some of the Orla Kiely goodies I’ve been wishing for, so I picked up a couple of canisters for the kitchen. The cheery pattern is really cute in there!

Orla Kiely Canisters

I put this “Eat” sign above the fridge quite a while ago, but I hadn’t taken a photo of it until now…


My mother-in-law has the same sign in red in the family’s Wisconsin lake house. I bought mine from Feather Your Nest (though it looks like they have different word signs now).

And how cute are these little measuring spoons? I love the soft clacking sounds they make as I open the cabinet.

    Oh, I definitely understand succumbing to the pretty… and I certainly haven’t gotten rid of mine!

    I walked past these in my target, but refrained from taking a second look. Now after seeing these pictures, I need to revisit! Loooove the measuring spoons.

    I just found those spoons on Anthropologie the other day and fell in love! I am all about bright fun accents in the kitchen, and mine is filled with all sorts of brightly colored melamine pieces (measuring cups, mixing bowls, bright antique toys)… oh I love it!

    Hi Nicole,

    I just purchased the Orla Kiely canisters this weekend at my local Target. I’m curious…what are you using your canisters for?

    Love the new additional details in your kitchen!

    If you fancy some more Orla Kiely prettiness for your kitchen, these little beauties are on sale in supermarkets here again. Chock full of tea, too! (and going for ridiculous sums on ebay…)

    Nicole, did you see this?

    I saw a post about the owner of the shop and remembered your sign…thought you might want to know.
