Kerry and Andy recreate the stylish home of designer Orla Kiely.
Fashion, textile and housewares designer Orla Kiely is known for her bold, graphic prints inspired by 1960s modernism, and her own home reflects this same style. She has filled her London townhouse with lots of bright colors, wood furniture and her iconic patterns on throw pillows and wallpaper. We love how she has blended vintage and modern to make her home look cheerful and unique, and we'd love to recreate this midcentury look in our home, too!
I'm an Indonesian born visual artist and self taught doll maker. My work is inspired mostly by my childhood memories, fairy tales, and dreams. I have been a lot of things before I came to where I am today. A graphic designer, a teacher, a baker and an illustrator. Nowadays, I'm happy to say that I'm a full time artist and mother.
The best things about living in Indianapolis are the public art, the cost of living, and the pedestrian focus. There are lots of museums, bike shares, and now there's even an electric car share. I've also been told that it's a great place for kids and dogs.

I like the overall look & feel of this room. Besides one closet, we don't have tall furniture here which makes it very spacious.
Markee recreates the vintage pin-up style of Bettie Paige.
Bettie is a fashion inspiration for many people, especially in the Rockabilly, Retro, Goth and Vintage scene. She had a carefree attitude about herself, and embraced her curves; she made the female form something to be celebrated. She also made a lot of her own bathing suits and lingerie. This inspired a whole legion of crafty people to make clothes that fit them, instead of trying to follow what the trends told them. I've always loved Bettie because she wasn't afraid to be a bit different and stand out, she didn't feel the need to follow popular culture, instead she made her own.
