Trash In Style! New Brabantia x Orla Kiely Bins

orla-kiely-brabantia-bins-1Trash. Rubbish. Garbage. No matter what term you use to describe your unwanted or recycled items, there’s no longer a need to hide it away before they leave your home. No more wonky bins hanging from the cupboard door beneath the sink – no siree! Enter stage right: the fancy pants (and oh so graphic/colourful/stylish) new bin from Brabantia. I’ve been a fan of Brabantia bins for sometime (remember this mint beauty?!), but their latest collaboration with ‘Queen of prints’ Orla Kiely is one of my favourites to date. Of course, that extra splash of make-you-smile style yellow in the lid really sold it to me too!orla-kiely-brabantia-bins-2Orla Kiely’s stem pattern is now world famous for it’s instant retro feel, which is why I feel it works so well on Brabantia’s iconic Retro Bin design. There’s a cream on charcoal with an orange lid colourway, but the black on cream with the yellow lid was my favourite! I was drawn to the graphic repeat pattern and splash of accent colour in the design. I think it’s the perfect way to dip your toes into both design elements without committing to a whole wall or scheme based on either. That’s what I love about good design, how it can transform an everyday object into something fun, stylish and notable in a space.orla-kiely-brabantia-bins-3The smaller 12 and 20 litre Retro Bins are ideal for smaller spaces, I like to place two side by side so I have one for recycling and one for rubbish. The larger 30 litre size is a good size for the kitchen but is still compact enough that it doesn’t take over the space. I love the hit of pattern and hue it brings to this streamlined white kitchen! orla-kiely-brabantia-bins-4The range is exclusive to John Lewis until April 2015 and if you buy one of the limited edition bins from them between 13-18 February you will be entered into a prize draw to win a Β£500 Orla Kiely room set. You can find out more over on Brabantia’s blog! I’d love to know where you would use these stylish bins in your home?orla-kiely-brabantia-bins-5

      @Gina – It’s the Skagerak Georg console table by Christina L Halstrom, and I bought it from Heals!

    I’m in the USA but I’m wondering if you couldn’t store some good ol’ TP in the bath in those gorgeous bins. Beautiful!

    I am a big Orla Kiely fan, my house is like a shrine to her work but I have to say that this is one of the better products I have seen in a long time! It is so smart and cheerful!
