I'm a huge Karen Walker fan, not just for her beautiful designs, but also for her (and her husband's) business savvy in terms of how they've created a hugely successful international brand. Karen Walker's style (from my perspective) is often a juxtopostion of extreme styles, mixing masculine and feminine, and overall the label is relaxed, effortless and timeless. 

As with some other famous international fashion brands Karen Walker has also made the transition from clothing and accessories across to home interiors and home-wares. She already has her own paint color range from Resene, but what got me really excited was her step into linens and crockery.

The jewelry is from Karen Walker's Super Fine range and this cup is available from Myer Australia I must obtain the full set!

Unfortunately the home-wares range is only available in store from Myer Australia, but fingers crossed they start online sales soon. The bed linens and towel designs are based on an archive of prints that Karen Walker has accumulated over 20 seasons of international fashion shows.
