British designer Cath Kidston takes patterns and colors that would be at home in your grandma's kitchen and turns them into surprisingly hip, modern must-haves. At first glance, her vintage-inspired housewares and accessories may not seem like your style, but I challenge you to walk into one of her 11 boutiques—including nine in the U.K., one in New York, and one in L.A.—and leave without buying something for yourself or as a gift. It simply can't be done; the stuff is just too cute. I highly recommend checking out one of her stores if you get the chance, but in the meantime, Kidston has a fabulous web site that ships to the U.S. Here are my picks from the online store.
