A Little Lilly for Your Pad

A friend of mine, who has just moved into a large beach home from a smaller cottage, and is in need of a some more furniture, sent me over some tear sheets of the new Lilly Pulitzer furniture line, "Palm Avenue". I  was a bit skeptical, I must admit. I've worn the bright colored Lilly frocks throughout my life as have my girls, love the look - but furnishing? hmmm. This could be a risky business move for them.

When I popped open the jpegs that she shared with me, I was not only pleasantly surprised but sort of impressed. My first thought was, 'these would work for great for shots of color in a room'.

I think, however, an entire room filled with these, could look juvenile. I love the punched up sherbets (although not with plaid wallpaper) but I'd want to use restraint, as this could go comical quickly.

 As I scrolled through, I realized that in keeping with the Palm Beach Lilly theme, they have included other classically inspired pieces. a little Chinese Chippendale here,  a touch of neo-classical there and even a tasseled, Hollywood regency vibe is represented.
by the way, check out how clever this idea is:

You know what else is nice about this line, is that it's an accessible, seemingly ( I haven't seen them in person )  well made resource for knock-offs of all of those enviable 'found' pieces seen throughout the blog world and on digi mags ; those fortuitously found local thrift store or flea treasures that seem to be completely elusive to most  of us - Unless you're Meg or Eddie-equipped with an innate homing device for such treasures. If you're on the hunt, you'll spend years trying to track them down, if at all.

Both of us, singled out the O'Hara bar cart as a priority. Because you know, a house is not a home if it's not ready to entertain friends.
