SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Pottery Barn Kids, a member of the Williams-Sonoma, Inc. (NYSE: WSM) portfolio of brands, today launches a vibrant new collection with Justina Blakeney, artist, designer, author and founder of Jungalow®. A mother herself, this will be Blakeney’s first collection created specifically for kids and baby. Bursting with bold hues, the Justina Blakeney for Pottery Barn Kids collection features the designer’s signature hand-drawn patterns and bohemian aesthetic with more than 90 pieces, including bedding, rugs, lighting, giftables, decorative accessories and storage. The Justina Blakeney for Pottery Barn Kids collection is available for purchase now on potterybarnkids.com/justina-blakeney and in select Pottery Barn Kids stores.
“The best part of being a child is letting your imagination run wild, and with this collaboration I wanted to capture that spirit of adventure,” said Justina Blakeney. “Inspired by my daughter and my love of nature, I wanted to bring fun, color and a sense of wonder into the nursery and kid space. Together with Pottery Barn Kids, I used my hand-painted patterns and boho sensibility to create pieces inspired by imaginary worlds my daughter and I share, and collections that celebrate the curiosity and playfulness of children everywhere.”
Inspired by Justina’s passion for travel and nature, the collection includes imaginative themes, from wild jungle scenes to whimsical worlds of magic and outer space.
“The Justina Blakeney for Pottery Barn Kids collection brings to life Justina’s free-spirited outlook, mixing bohemian style and modern charm,” said Jennifer Kellor, President, Pottery Barn Kids. “The collection is designed with pieces that inspire imagination and encourage children to explore their own colorful creativity, and we are thrilled to share this collaboration with our customers.”
The Justina Blakeney for Pottery Barn Kids collection showcases Justina’s uninhibited creativity and ability to bring cheerful and eclectic style into any space. The Jungalino room and nursery, which includes decor for both kids and baby, was made to mix and match, featuring palm fronds prints, jungle animals, and natural textures. Adding an eye-catching twist to classic bedding, the hand-stitched Embroidered Palm Quilt pairs seamlessly with the “Hey Boo Boo” Sentiment Pillow, while the Dipped Fringe Light and Sun Shelf create a playful vibe.
Designed with mystical accents, the Magic Disco Caravan bedroom combines mosaic-inspired global patterns with shimmering metallic detailing. Highlights include the Ceramic Turtle Night Light, Disco Caravan Rug and Vida Luna Doll, the designer’s personal favorite, which all bring a touch of enchantment to the space. Taking the collection to the next level with out-of-this-world style, the Astronomad bedroom incorporates a deep blue hue and groovy galactic print and pattern.
