Rebecca Minkoff is the queen of romance-meets-bohemian fashion. It’s no surprise that the American designer has turned her attention from handbags and apparel to homeware. She’s the latest in a long line of fashion designers to switch accessories for home décor and bedding. The homeware range comes on the heels of Minkoff’s first perfume, her novel “Fearless: The new Rules for Unlocking Creativity, Courage, and Success”, as well as her podcast “Superwoman with Rebecca Minkoff”.
We’re looking at Rebecca Minkoff’s first home collection and the earthy bedding range that everyone is talking about. Minkoff describes her debut home collection as being “a bit bohemian, a bit rock and roll”, reflecting her personal style as much as her brand’s aesthetic.
The inspiration behind Rebecca Minkoff’s home collection
The demand for a Rebecca Minkoff homeware line has been growing in recent years – with the brand even conducting customer surveys to take the temperature for a potential collection. The collection took on a new meaning at the start of the pandemic when Minkoff moved into her new Brooklyn home and began to look at her own interior design through a new lens.
For Minkoff, the pandemic means that our homes are no longer the same. Your bedroom is no longer just somewhere you sleep – as it becomes an even more important place of serenity in the work from home era. The pandemic saw a sharp rise in home décor sales as millions of people turned their attention to home renovation while working remotely.
What makes Minkoff’s home collection stand out is that it offers the same approach to luxury as her signature brand. It comes with the quality you expect of Rebecca Minkoff but with a more attainable price point and versatile designs. This home décor isn’t a splurge, but more of a reasonable investment into elevating your home.
The first Rebecca Minkoff home collection
At the forecall point of Minkoff’s homeware collection is eco-conscious materials that are used for her signature products – bedsheets. You’ll find an array of linen blends, organic stone wash, winter flannels, and textured cottons.
In keeping with the aesthetic of her fashion brand, Minkoff’s homeware collection focuses on solid colors. The first collection focuses on what Minkoff describes as “sun-bleached” colors – including neutrals, rust hues, and blush pinks. Minkoff’s website describes the collection as “comfort meets subtly edgy and playful designs to give your bedroom an effortless look”.
Her ready-to-wear collection also serves as the inspiration for many of the duvets and quilts that appear in the collection. These accessories take a more maximalist approach with vintage-inspired florals and timeless leopard prints. Although the debut collection focuses primarily on bedding, it’s not difficult to imagine the product range being expanded in the coming seasons.
You can purchase the first Rebecca Minkoff Home collection through her official website to bring a touch of bohemian romanticism to your living space.
