As her current space draws celebrity clientele including Jennifer Lawrence, Vanderpump has set her sights on a new venture: home decor and design. Just in time for the holidays, the reality star, 54, collaborated with Pop Culture Living to debut her own brand of housewares and tabletop accessories.

"I've always loved creating ambiance, and it's important to me to create a whole feeling where you feel so welcome," Vanderpump told Us of her signature collection, which includes items like a pearl and rhinestone-encrusted ice bucket ($225, and beaded champagne flutes ($71 for a set of four). "We've had a couple of offers [to open other restaurants], but I want to . . . [create] all the gorgeous things that make a house beautiful, that's what I would like to do."

Juggling filming Real Housewives with her side pursuits wasn't easy, but Vanderpump told Us she's glad she returned for the show's fifth season. "After last season, I never wanted to film it again, I was so over the disloyalty, but I was persuaded," she told Us. "I've filmed 150 episodes of reality TV in four years, and I didn't want [season four] to cloud my judgment. I'm glad I went back!"
