Hint: It's fantastic news for Hello Kitty fans.

Are you obsessed with Hello Kitty, the iconically cute cartoon designed by Japanese company Sanrio? Well, join the club: Turns out there are several celebrities out there who also love the little Kitty, including Katy Perry (who has an actual tattoo of the character on her finger), Paris Hilton, and Lady Gaga. The 44-year-old cartoon has a cult-following and has spawned everything from her own theme park to a cafe—and now, Pottery Barn is giving Hello Kitty lovers a decor line that's a little more elevated than the white-and-bubblegum-pink color palette of your childhood.

Launching today, Thursday June 14, the Hello Kitty x PBteen collection encompasses everything from bedding and bath to lighting and bathroom essentials. With prices ranging from $15.50 to $149, the items are an affordable way to bring some major cuteness home.

But don’t think the line is only meant for kids. While yes, the cartoon character does have a ton of bright pinks and a quirky look as part of her aesthetic, the designers behind this line made sure to speak to a more modern consumer—in other words, yes, you totally can use this collection in your first Adult apartment.

Take the bedding, for instance: A pale pink duvet sets the base, while a multitude of throw pillows in various muted greys and blacks prevent the look from being too matchy-matchy. The line also has some really great beauty cases accessorized with gold patterns, champagne tones, and gilded bows—perfect for adding a touch of fun to your vanity.

Not ready to have Hello Kitty’s face all over your home? There are smaller items in the collection, too: Catchalls shaped in the word “HELLO” and scalloped sheets and pillows still pay homage to the beloved cartoon, even without her signature bow and whiskers. Maximalists will be obsessed with the the gilded pillows and gold-adorned backpacks, and it wouldn’t be a complete collection without a stuffed toy version of the character, this time in a dark grey to fit any and all home aesthetics.

Each piece has been designed to be mixed with your existing decor. The decidedly grown-up colors are definitely more muted, so they’d look great in an all-white room, or even combined with some of Pottery Barn's existing lines—we can see these pieces fitting in perfectly with the black and violet Anna Sui line.

And if you want to go completely all out in Hello Kitty decor, well, who can blame you? The cute cartoon is guaranteed to put a smile on anyone’s face.
