House of Style


Seeing as she grew up in one of Italy’s most beloved fashion families, it’s no wonder Margherita Maccapani Missoni Amos became a designer herself. She spearheaded the blockbuster Missoni for Target collaboration in 2011, and now the model turned mom of two has a new collection at Pottery Barn Kids.

Stripes, florals, diamonds—there’s no such thing as too much! “Layer them to encourage children to dream in color,” says Missoni. Her color-meets-class decorating style is sure to give you a few bright ideas.

2. Anything Daisy


My first name means “daisy” in Italian, and I’m obsessed with collecting anything with my namesake flower—ceramics, paintings, plates. I used the motif on a mirror for the Pottery Barn collection. Daisy Mirror, select Pottery Barn Kids stores, $199

3. Calming Color


Shades of aqua create a sense of calm, which is why I painted my bedroom teal blue.

Dahlias come in so many different exuberant hues and sizes. They’re my go-to for an easy dinner party bouquet.

Everyone should have a few woven baskets. Use them for laundry, to store off-season throws and pillows or as a decorative planter for an indoor tree. Ombre Basket, select Pottery Barn Kids stores, $69
