“We are definitely the house that everybody comes to,” says Ayesha Curry, which should come as no surprise—after all, we featured her Bay Area home on a Domino cover. So we’re even less shocked that the cookbook author and entrepreneur’s new Sweet July by Ayesha Curry x Pottery Barn collection boasts some summer-ready party pieces.
“I get tremendous joy from entertaining my loved ones and friends,” she explains. “So when we were thinking about the collection, we wanted to create products that you could use over and over and over again.”
From serve-yourself drink dispensers—Curry sets up two at every bash: one for kids and one for adults—to a bucket for stashing beverages, the entire line will make you want to call up your buds and fire up the grill. There’s even a bocce ball set that’s in calming neutral tones, something she couldn’t ever find for the right price point.
But you don’t need a sprawling backyard to work the collab into your home. In fact, Curry recommends the marble lazy Susan for apartment living. “If you have a small table, everything goes on there, and you can rotate it and save table space.” Plus the neutral tones of the collection mean they’ll work with almost any decor scheme.
Speaking of the marble pieces, Curry’s face lights up when she talks about sourcing the caramel stone that appears in both bathroom and table accessories. “I remember our Zoom meeting when we were going through marble samples like it was yesterday,” she says. “I was like, ‘I want brown—do they make brown marble?’ And they go, ‘Funny you ask. Look at this sample.’ It was unanimous. We all loved it.” And we’re guessing you and your guests will, too.
