Drew Barrymore wants to decorate your home!
The actress and entrepreneur is adding one more Flower to her cap, with a new line of home decor, accessories and furniture. Drew Barrymore Flower Home, a collaboration with Walmart, debuts today, with items starting at $18.
“I’ve been saying I wanted to go into home and design for 20 years because it’s really where my life and my passion lies. Now, finally, finally we’re here!” Barrymore tells PEOPLE of her latest launch. She already oversees Flower Beauty, Flower Eyewear, Flower Press and her production company, Flower Films.
The more than 200-piece collection includes everything from decorative throw pillows ($37) and painterly ceramic vessels ($39 for a set of three) to a pink velvet sofa ($899) and scallop-edge headboard ($349).

The inspiration for the feminine, floral-filled designs are very personal to the star, who credits both her iconic role in E.T. and her family’s Hollywood history for shaping her tastes.
“I always thought I loved flowers because of E.T. I tell Stephen Spielberg I love hearts and flowers because E.T. had a big, red beating heart and I would always bring him flowers,” she explains. But while chatting about her interior design influences she has another realization about her affinities’ origins.

Her love for blooms and layered, collected-feeling rooms was likely shaped even earlier by two important women in her life: her godmother, Anna Strasberg, and Strasberg’s best friend, Lynn von Kersting, the co-owner of the celeb-favorite L.A. restaurant The Ivy.

“I’m having a total revelation of like all these flowers,” she says with a laugh. “I think I’m most inspired by my godmother. She had a very salon-style house. The walls were filled and there were books and soft floral pillows. That’s my biggest childhood influence, living in Anna’s house and seeing The Ivy be made.

For Flower Home, she specifically designed pieces that coordinate, but don’t match, to channel that spirit.
“I wanted a collection filled with things that felt like they came from different places around the world,” she says of the travel-inspired styles in this week’s issue of PEOPLE. Most importantly, they had to be colorful, she says, because “your home should be joyful and make you feel inspired.”
