On Valentine’s Day, Laura Dern shared a photo of her delicious-looking shrimp paella. Despite how yummy her dinner looked, the plates paired with the paella stole the show. And luckily, the designer revealed themselves in the comments so you can grab Dern’s groovy dishware.

“Happy Valentine’s Day from ours to yours,” Dern captioned her post. “We made Paella!”

Dern paired her solid white shallow bowls with a mish-mash collection of bright-patterned plates from Milanese brand La DoubleJ. The label sells a collection of fashion and homewares made with vintage-inspired archival prints in bold colors. 

“Made in collaboration with Italian porcelain greats, Ancap, these dessert plates are crafted from fine porcelain with hand-painted 18K gold trim,” the La DoubleJ website says of its collection of dessert plates. “The set features our Wildbird vintage print in six eye-popping colorways.” The plates are also dishwasher safe, which, let’s be honest, is a make or break for most of us.

If, unlike Dern, you’re a stickler for matching patterns, La DoubleJ also sells the same printed dessert plates in sets of two matching colorways for $125. And if you’re really into matching dressings on your dining table, La DoubleJ sells cotton and linen tablecloths, placemats, napkins, and runners in a variation of the “Wildbird” print that you can add to your tabletop.

The brand even sells tea jars, vases, cushions, and aprons in the Wildbird print if you’re looking to expand outward. 

With so much color and print happening, it’s hard not to smile at a table set with La DoubleJ accessories. Even if you can’t taste Laura Dern’s paella, at least you can emulate the joy she’s bringing to the table.
