From West Elm

Retro-inspired appliance-maker SMEG builds pieces that are instantly recognizable by their nontraditional colors and rounded lines. SMEG refrigerators are covetable for their showpiece looks, and in this collaboration with West Elm, SMEG brings buyers its great designs in smaller-scale goods. From juicers to toasters and, yes, refrigerators, you can snag a turquoise dream machine to adorn your kitchen.

Will Taylor, the blogger behind mega-popular lifestyle blog Bright.Bazaar, describes himself as a "gentleman hooked on hue." His make-you-smile style guides his styling choices in this GrandinRoad collection with bright, colorful rooms full of cheer.

From CB2

Gwyneth Paltrow's sometimes maligned and often obsessed-over lifestyle brand goop shares a taste of the good life enjoyed by its founder with its readers. In this collaboration with CB2—an attainable offshoot of Crate & Barrel—the pieces are refined and pretty. From dinnerware to furniture, this collab feels super luxe and delicate at the same time.

Liberty of London prints and those inspired by the iconic brand are having a huge moment right now. The brand's collaboration with Anthropologie features classic designs, from delicate flowers on dark backgrounds to busy florals that manage to look oh-so-modern in this iteration.

S'well water bottles are practical and environmentally friendly. But if you're keeping your bottle within arm's reach all day long (since it will keep your beverage cold for 24 hours), it would be lovely if it were beautifully designed. Enter the Lilly Pulitzer collaboration. Lilly P. prints adorn six unique bottles that are topped with golden lids that you'll adore.

Reese Witherspoon is the celeb face behind Draper James. The preppy Southern-feeling brand teamed up with Crate & Barrel for a line of goods meant for get-togethers. The collection is prime for outdoor fêtes but works just as well for indoor parties with a down-home feel.

Everything eighties is super hot right now. So it makes sense that favorite '80s brand Laura Ashley, whose floral prints adorned dresses in the decade of excess, is having a major revival. The retro brand is collaborating with Urban Outfitters for an exclusive line of clothing and accessories that will make you feel like you're reliving your youth.

From CB2

L.A.'s retail scene begins and ends at Fred Segal. The famous West Coast department store has teamed up with CB2 for what they're dubbing a "pool party" collection. While it is chock-full of outdoor gear, there's tons of indoor furniture and accessories that ooze L.A. style, too.

From CB2

Lenny Kravitz effortlessly exudes rock-n-roll cool. But even rock stars want to be comfortable at home. In the spirit of letting down your rock-star hair and loving your environment, this collection feels very Hollywood glam. Loads of leather, brass and bold geometric prints will make your living room feel like you're ready to through a killer afterparty.

Rifle Paper Co. has made a place for itself in the design world with pretty floral designs that adorn stationery, pens, phone cases and other office essentials. They elevated the often dull utilitarian goods to beautiful objects in their own right. Their pairing-up with Keds has resulted in the same pretty enhancements on hard-working shoes. The kids' Keds are particularly adorable.
