Anthropologie is known for their colorful, boho designs and they work with many independent artists to create interesting pieces and collections.

Each month we highlight one of these collections and the artist behind them in this series called Anthropologie Artists. We will also tell you where you can buy them, even if the item is sold out or no longer in stores.

Check out this beautiful and whimsical bedding for children on the theme of Kew Gardens by artist Monika Forsberg. It comes in different styles with colorful patterns on both front and back of the quilt.

One of the blanket patterns has two huge pink flowers surrounded by blue butterflies and framed by a geometric pattern. The back side is covered with the same style of flowers intertwining. The other pattern has a wonderful botanical garden illustration with glass houses, plants, flowers, birds and swans. The back side is covered with flowers. I love her charming birds and colorful quirky style.

The artist is Swedish and lives in London with her two kids. She is known for her amazing quirky illustrations and animations that look like they have been painted and then cut out from the page. Monika uses gouache, pencils, pens and ink to create her colorful artworks. She has worked with many other companies in addition to Anthropologie, and you can find her designs on clothing, books, cards and games.
