The New Home Decor Items and Collections We’re Excited About Now

Sometimes, you just need to spruce things up. And by things, we mean your house, and by spruce, we mean enjoy new home decor items. After all, it’s been a long 18 months in and out of lockdown, staring at the same walls and sitting in the same few rooms. Go ahead, put a playful new throw pillow on that otherwise bland corner chair. Add a new vase perfect for displaying those pink June peonies. Splurge on some new table linens, since you can finally socialize rather than social distance.

Need some inspiration? You’re in luck—because below, we’ve rounded up our favorite new home launches from late May and Early June. Traditionalists, look no further than Cece Barfield’s new Virginia collection, which offers Belgian linens and hand-painted plates. Meanwhile, the fashion world is buzzing about Johanna Ortiz’s new tablescape offerings, many of which source tropical motifs from her past collections. And for the chic yet cost-conscious shopper—check out Justina Blakeney’s new collaboration with Target.

Without further ado, these are the new home decor items worth considering for your space.

Johanna Ortiz tapped artisans from around her home country of Colombia for her new, colorful and character-filled home collection for Moda Operandi. There are placemats with palm trees, plates painted with jaguars, and napkins adorned with pretty plumed birds.

“Johanna’s tabletop collection is just like her runway collections—tropical, elegant and fun. I love the artisanal touches and archival prints. There’s a party in every place setting,” Lauren Santo Domingo, founder of Moda Operandi, says of the designer’s new line.

CeCe Barfield, a Bunny Williams alum who playfully elevates traditional chintz and tassels into the 21st century, came out with her second home collection earlier this June. Like so many designers, her inspiration came from lockdown. While spending endless days at her family’s home in Hot Springs, she became fascinated with her mother-in-laws collection of antique linens. The result? Her “Virginia” Collection, which aimed to create contemporary pieces that, one day, could be the heirlooms future generations admire.

Rebecca Gardener’s new summertime offerings via her website, Houses and Parties, are a sure (and shore) thing. Peruse cocktail napkins embroidered with crabs, coral inspired champagne coupes, and Barreria Corallina plates—perfect for a seaside soirée from Maine to Southampton or Kiawah.

Beloved cookbook author and chef Yotam Ottolenghi collaborated with his longtime graphic artist, Ivo Bisignano, and Belgian design label Serax on a new tableware collective called “Feast.” Colorful, cheery, and abstract, plates and bowls are adorned with “O” shaped brush strokes and modern vegetable-esque shapes (a nod to the chef’s favorite food group).

Justina Blakeney—best known for her tropical, boho home aesthetic—is launching a new affordable line with Target. Most of the 300 products, which include curtains, wallpaper, bedding, bath, and room accents, are under $30. Right now, you can preview the collection online, which will launch in-stores on June 13 and online on June 26. We’re particularly fond of the terracotta vases.

Dada Daily’s new “Let Us Entertain You” board, a circular slate of maplewood atop a trio of emerald green cork balls, is meant to add an accent of amusement to any dinner party. Throughout the next several months, they’ll also have a slew of cool New York creatives—from Oscar de la Renta’s Laura Kim to Leandra Medine Cohen—curate accoutrements that pair perfectly with the board.
