While patiently navigating winter’s coldest, most depressing months—with little to look forward to besides Valentine’s Day—a glimmer of sunshine has suddenly appeared in the form of one of the most iconic home decor collaborations yet: Anthropologie x Paule Marrot.

This beautiful collection, inspired by Parisian textile designer Paule Marrot’s deco designs—which blossomed in popularity between the '20s and '70s—boasts home accessories decked out with upbeat florals. From whimsical shower curtains to bold potholders, there’s something for every room and every style; yes, even for minimalists like myself.

To make these pieces pop in your home, Anne White, Anthropologie’s Home Styling Manager, suggests creating visual cohesion. “Establish a unified color palette, layering texture and decorative accessories while protecting negative space for visual respite,” she tells “If you love all things vivid and bold, more truly can be more!”

Prices range from $8 coasters to $2,000 sofas, and since Paule’s clients included prolific style icons such as Jackie Kennedy and members of the British royal family, we think it’s a pretty good deal. And though the colorful designs are au naturel (complete with illustrations of wildflowers, squirrels and butterflies), we can’t help but dream of Paris in springtime when browsing the full collection online here.

See some of our favorites below.

There isn't a room in your home that couldn't do with a colorful coaster, and these Paule Marrot ones boast shades of blues, yellows and reds in delicately natural designs.
