Pottery Barn Teen and Pottery Barn Kids recently launched a collaboration with Rifle Paper Co that’s just the right mix of cheerful and charming. It’s what every contemporary design lover has been waiting for. Allison Spampanato, Senior Vice President of Product Design And Development for Pottery Barn Kids tells me, “Working with the team at Rifle Paper Co was such a collaborative and creative process, and we were endlessly inspired by [cofounder and CCO] Anna Bond’s distinctive hand-drawn illustrations, florals, and color palette. We came together to create exclusive home collections for babies, kids, and teens that are beautiful and crafted with quality materials that further our commitment to sustainability.”
Here’s everything you need to know about this stylish partnership.
Three Brands Come Together
Founded in 2009, Rifle Paper Co is known for a variety of products featuring the founder’s hand-drawn art. From florals to travel-themed pieces and adorable fashion-inspired illustrations, the brand has a sophisticated yet fun aesthetic that certainly appeals to the customers of Pottery Barn Teen and Pottery Barn Kids.
In addition to Pottery Barn Kids and Teen, Rifle Paper Co has worked with a variety of brands in both the home and fashion spaces including Loloi, Cloth and Company, Summersalt, and most recently Gilette. While it launched as a stationery line—today there is a myriad of products available from phone cases to furniture. Still, this new partnership is a major step forward.
Bond tells me, “This is our first time designing a kids’ home collection and I’ve always thought Pottery Barn Kids and Pottery Barn Teen would make the perfect partner. Not only am I a longtime customer myself as a mom of four, but they also share similar brand values with Rifle Paper Co of timelessness, quality, and beauty. Our teams seamlessly worked together to design this beautiful collection to grow with any family and I think we are both very proud of what we created.”
While the collaboration offers a curated number of products, there isn’t one piece that isn’t beautifully designed or noteworthy.
Both Pottery Barn Kids and Pottery Barn Teen offer sheet sets and duvets in an original floral print called Bramble Fields. Available in Twin/Twin XL, Full, and Queen sizes, it compliments bedrooms for people of all ages (yes, even adults) and looks great on any Pottery Barn bed. Like most of Bond’s designs, Bramble Fields has a chic yet welcoming aesthetic.
Lastly, there are throw pillow covers to complete the look. These would make a nice addition to a reading corner accent chair or even to refresh a sofa.
Pottery Barn Kids
Bond worked on the collection when she was pregnant with her first daughter. So, it’s easy to understand why these feminine prints translate so well to the nursery category.
If she tells me if could only choose one piece from the line, it would be the Garden Party Forest Baby Quilt. “It feels like something that is meant to be cherished and passed down to a future granddaughter. It also would make a lovely baby shower gift as you can personalize it with a name or monogram.”
Pottery Barn Kids has crib sheets in Garden Party Forrest as well as Bramble Fields along with baby blankets. “I love the color palette that we chose for the collection and how the dark and playful prints mix perfectly with the lighter florals. They feel very on trend but also classically timeless,” says Bond.
The wallpaper is another favorite of the cofounder. She tells me, “I love the wallpaper because it is something that can truly grow with your child over the years.” Available in Bramble Fields Cream and Bramble Fields Evergreen, the design easily suits a powder room in addition to a bedroom. Because it has a peel-and-stick backing, this wallpaper can easily be self-installed.
The collaboration also features a variety of art prints that pop against the pattern to easily create a cohesive look.
How To Style These Fabulous Florals
Bond tells me everything in the collection is designed to mix and match together. “When styling different prints the best way to bring things together is by using a common color across each print and playing with different scales (larger prints mixed with smaller ones),” she says. “Also, don’t be afraid to take some risks and put unexpected pieces together to create a unique look just for your home. At the end of the day—it is all about creating a space that brings you joy.”
