In an effort to bring high design to your neighborhood shopping mall, JC Penney has paired with the likes of Terence Conran and Jonathan Adler — but their latest design partnership comes from a somewhat unexpected place. They've just introduced a line of bedding and housewares from actress Eva Longoria (of Desperate Housewives fame), and you might be surprised by what you see.

Eva admitted to the Dallas Morning News that she grew up sewing her own pillows and duvet covers, an experience that I'm pretty sure anyone who grew up highly creative and a little bit nerdy can relate to. (Except that as a child I'm pretty sure I had no idea what a duvet cover was.) The collection includes designs inspired by her travels all over the world, including patterns inspired by Morocco and Spain.

The image above is of her Marrakech bedding set, paired with curtains in the same style. You can see the entire collection at JC Penney.
