New Missoni home decor line is for boho kids of all ages

Excuse my saying so, but Margherita Missoni’s new Pottery Barn Kids line is too fun and too boho to limit to just children’s spaces. If you have young children or are expecting, then by all means, shop this line.

But if, like me, you’re beyond child-bearing and/or child-rearing, don’t be sad: There’s lots in this line to appeal to the mature set who haven’t lost their eye for color and fun.


Get an overview of the collection in this promotional video…



Now here’s a rundown of what in the collection, in my opinion, works for all of us grown-ups...


A tisket, a tasket

My laundry room is directly off my kitchen, and I keep a laundry bag hanging on the back of the door in between for stashing used kitchen towels and cloth napkins. Mine is plain old off-white canvas, so one of Margherita's Laundry Bags ($59) would be a welcome upgrade. I’ll take the green tiger, please. Why, of course, I picked the cat!

And these baskets are all dreamy. My own personal favorites are the Diamond baskets in the top photo, but I wouldn’t refuse either the Blue or Pink Hombre baskets. The larger sizes ($69) would make terrific wastebaskets, and the smaller ones ($39) could hold books, a sewing project, magazines, a stack of throws to ward off the chill, or extra throw pillows.

These fun-shaped basket pendants ($199) are also terrific for any age. I love the odd shapes of each one, both of which remind me of hats! I can see the Yellow Pendant Basket hanging singly or grouped over a kitchen island or bathroom vanity. And the diamond-patterned, Black Pendant Basket would be just the ticket hung low over a casual dining or game table.


Yipes! Stripes! A Missoni tradition


Colorful stripes—and zigzags, in particular—have long been the stuff of Missoni design, whether in fashion or home interiors.

So this Pop Color Stripes Rug has a long string of forbears, as well as a myriad of adult uses in the modern home, with sizes ranging from 3-by-5 feet to 8-by-10 feet ($149-$699).

Ya' gotta admit, it looks pretty snazzy beneath the Dripped Side Table ($89), which is itself a jazzy add-on in any adult-frequented room.

It pairs equally well with the Linen Patchwork Baby Bedding ($24-$129) and Quilted Bedding (available in twin and full/queen, $34-$209), both from the collection.

I’m also digging that cute Animal Canopy ($149) above the twin beds, but I haven’t figured out a way to make it work for eligible-for-AARP me. Now if I had grandkids…


Please, don’t eat the daisies

But you're certainly welcome to sit in the Petal Desk Chair ($299). Don’t worry, it’s standard size and would make a darling vanity chair.

And the Yellow Daisy Mirror ($199) would be stunning in a powder bath or entry hall as a fun and cheery accent. Who among us wouldn’t like to see how they look as a flower at least once in their lifetime?

I, for one, would even enjoy plopping down on that Daisy Pouf ($99), provided there’s someone around to help me get back up.


Seeing spots

No, the chest isn’t part of the collection, but the set of six colorful knobs ($49) is and would add a delightful touch to painted or stained furniture or cabinets.

Or try the set of four colorful hooks ($49) to jazz up a laundry room, bath or hallway. It’s important, IMHO, to make every room in the house function with fun in mind.

The Modern Mobile ($59) will work in just about any space, in addition to over a baby’s crib, and would look particularly fetching refracting the rays spilling through a sunny window.

The Stars and Stripes Garlands ($19 each) would add extra pizzazz to any self-respecting, kid-at-heart adult’s office, don’t you think? I can just see the stripey one decking out my very own mood board.


Poufs, pillows, & pouches

Okay, I admit, if you don't have kids you’ll have hard time explaining the Jumbo Turtle Pouf ($119). But if you don’t tell on me, I won’t tell on you, K?

The collection also includes a number of sweet and quirky pillows. I especially love the Embroidered Beetle Pillow ($24.50, right behind “Frog Lover”) and think it would be a great addition to a sunporch.

And these Embroidered Pouches ($49, $39 and $36, front to back)) are clearly not for your home, nor are they for kids, but I’m thinking they’d look extra special inside my purse or suitcase! I’m partial to the medium-size one, whose sentiment translates, Hands Off!


Want more? You got it!
