Blame it on the summer home trends nodding to whimsical grandmillennial chic, but botanical prints and embroidery are all the rage right now (and that goes for fashion, too—just see these showstopping Farm Rio dresses). So when we say the new fashionably floral West Elm and Rhode collection couldn't have come at a better time, we mean that wholeheartedly.

Chances are you’re already familiar with West Elm, the popular retailer that brings you fresh yet timeless pieces for the home. As for Rhode? Led by stylish founders Phoebe Vickers and Purna Khatau, it’s a lifestyle and apparel label that is all about supplying modern silhouettes in unforgettable prints. So it's about time the brands joined forces to deliver a limited-edition home collection, utilizing gorgeous patterns, colors and fabrics to totally change the vibe of your space. Think: summery yet funky bedding and tableware that feels like a cross between Coastal Grandmother and Cottagecore. As it happens, the collection is inspired by travel and vintage design, per the brands. The TikTok below offers a sneak peek of the collab available exclusively at West Elm right this minute.

With 40 items in total ranging in price from $39 to $330, there's something in the budget for everyone. However, if there's anything you want to buy, it's tableware, like the Lacquer coasters ($35) and Batik placemats (from $46). But don't just take our word for it. As Vickers herself raved to Elle, "We love the wicker breakfast tray [$125] and all of the tableware. The craftsmanship in each piece is beautiful, and we love how the pieces turned out." Better yet, everything is made to be effortlessly mixed-and-matched, so you'll never run out of ways to style these staples.

As for us? We've got our eye on these five pieces in particular.

1. West Elm x Rhode Wicker Tray

Breakfast in bed has never looked so good, thanks to this handwoven wicker tray that's as beautiful as it is functional. Seriously, take a look at its unique, curved shape and handy handles that make it easy to transport from the kitchen to the bedroom and back again, even with a cup of OJ and a plate of pancakes stacked on top. When it's not being used as a bed tray, you can also set it up as the centerpiece for your coffee table. It'll look good either way.

Your summer bedding should be cooling as well as just plain cool. Luckily, this *reversible* quilt checks both boxes. It is handcrafted from 100 percent, cool-to-the-touch cotton, so you'll not only be less likely to overheat at night with it as your cover, but the festive mushroom print with summery shades of pink, green and blue will also switch up the tone of your room in style. Just be sure to grab the matching shams to get the full effect. And FYI: You can machine wash the pieces in warm water to keep them in tip-top shape all season and beyond.

Why spring for a total bathroom renovation when all it takes is a new shower curtain to give your space a whole new vibe? With a charming begonia pattern and light palette, this breezy cotton pick will bring an airiness to your abode that you'll adore. Just keep in mind that it has 12 buttonholes for hanging, and it's unlined, so you'll need to buy a shower liner separately.

Since we're on the topic of bathrooms, we can’t resist spotlighting this machine-washable Wiggle bathmat. Its cool circular shape and playful curved embroidery is mesmerizing to look at, but we really love that it’s absorbent and cozy post-shower, according to the brand. And we have its cotton material and durable 1,500-gram weight to thank for that.

Hosting dinner parties this summer? This reversible cotton runner (with a lotus pattern on one side and a batik print on the other) will take your festive tablescapes to the next level. Plus, it's machine-washable, so you don’t have to worry if it gets dirtied up during one of your lively gatherings. Pair it with a few other dining essentials from the collection, like the Batik placemats, Lacquer coasters and Lacquer tray, and your tabletop will look like it came straight out of a West Elm catalog (literally). Prepare for a stream of compliments throughout dinner, because this must-have is sure to impress your guests.
