Orla Kiely’s iconic “Stem” pattern pops up everywhere—on her collaborations with companies like Method and Clarks, her own clothing line, and a seemingly endless array of knockoffs.

So we were excited to see how her 1960’s aesthetic would translate to her Victorian home in London in Dwell. A perfect match, the designer’s colorful prints accent midcentury modern furnishings in an easeful way.

Check out the rest of the house in Dwell’s slideshow.

Last week we showed you IKEA’s ad for their new PS collection. Now, we’re bringing you a preview of a few designs. This wall shelf ($50) is among our favorites. No screws, no nails—you just lean it up against the wall, making it an ideal shelving unit for design-minded individuals who love to rearrange their interiors. (We’re speaking from experience.)

Other items in the budget-friendly collection include pendant lamps ($70), a storage table made of four different-sized stackable trays ($69), and a corner cabinet ($99). Each piece was designed to be moved around and used in different ways, in large or small spaces. PS 2014 will be released April 1.

One part art history lesson, one part design inspiration—the results are totally original.
