Monique Lhuillier's New Pottery Barn Collection Is Just As Pretty As Her Wedding Dresses

For her recently launched collection with Pottery Barn, Monique Lhuillier drew inspiration from her wedding-dress designs — which means lots of blush, rose gold, sparkles, and soft textures. The celebrity wedding-gown designer already has a line with Pottery Barn Kids, and her grown-up launch doesn't disappoint.

There are bedding, dinnerware, and bath items, but the real stars of the collection are the tabletop and entertaining offerings. The Champagne coupes, trays, and accessories like place-card holders are Instagram-worthy and affordable, so if you're planning on throwing a holiday bash you might want to keep reading.

What were some of your inspirations for the Pottery Barn collab?

"This collection was inspired by a dress in my spring 2016 collection, it was blush tulle...I used rose gold throughout... I wanted to create the beautiful tablescapes, the china, the platters, the chargers, all with that beautiful rose gold. A table is all about the details, and I love to see the whimsy, I love butterflies."

Did you have weddings in mind when you were designing the tabletop decor, or is it more for parties in general?

"This isn't only for a wedding — this is for a weekend party, a New Year's celebration... It's all about using the special pieces every day; it's not too precious."

What's your advice for young women who want to start their own businesses?

"After being in business for 22 years, I can tell you, you have to go into work every day with so much passion and drive, and also be very clear in your vision. I feel like I'm working as hard today as I was when I started my company, and what I think really works is when you're true to your vision and...having that tenacity to stand by what you are proud to show."
