Child’s Play

“I was inspired by my own experience as a mother, creating magical nurseries and bedrooms for my children, Jack and Sophia,”

says Monique Lhuillier of the jumping-off point for her whimsical new Pottery Barn Kids collection. The fashion designer also referenced her personal home decor, as well as her bridal, ready-to-wear and accessories collections, for the range of unabashedly fanciful offerings, which includes a butterfly chandelier that takes cues from a draped beaded necklace, bedding emblazoned with a hand-painted floral pattern, and storybook-perfect tulle bed canopies—all rendered in a calming palette of silk white, blush, gray and mint. There’s even a mural by Los Angeles painter Gabrielle Carey, modeled on an original work on display in Lhuillier’s son’s room. “My life is about living with passion,” she says. “And I design the way I live.” potterybarnkids.com.
