Freshly baked pies, flowers plucked from the garden, and mixed generations; that’s what a summer dinner party looks like at Aerin founder Aerin Lauder’s East Hampton home. She’s brought that same relaxed spirit into her new collaboration with Williams Sonoma, spanning tableware and outdoor furniture that’ll make you want to start planning your own low-key gathering.

Fresh blues and whites are sprinkled throughout the collection, from the vintage-looking dinnerware to the scalloped and gingham table linens to the playful confetti tumblers. The color combination was a no-brainer for Lauder: It was her grandmother’s go-to palette. “Her line was all inspired by turquoise, and every room in her [Long Island] house was blue and white,” says Lauder.

The palette isn’t the only place Lauder referenced family memories. The outdoor furniture, made of all-weather wicker, was inspired by a massive basket her mom has owned for as long as she can remember. She fills this basket with smaller baskets, which Lauder often finds herself pulling for photo shoots. Needless to say, she has an affinity for the natural material and knew almost immediately after being approached by Williams Sonoma that it would be the star.

As for the pink onyx bathroom accessories? Those are directly inspired by Lauder’s own New York City apartment. As the style and design director for Estée Lauder Re-Nutriv, she knows a thing or two about skin care, and she sees the bathroom as one of the most important rooms in the house. “That’s where you start your day, and that’s where you end your day, and to have these wonderful accessories makes it that much more special,” she says. We think the tissue box holder is a family heirloom in the making.
