I received a random catalog in the mail today – and I love it! It’s called “Serena & Lily” and it’s all baby bedding, nursery and children bedding collections. The branding of the company is great… I love how they named each bedding collection a trendy child’s name and then wrote a description about him/her… for example… “Blake radiates magic. Rooms light up when he walks in. He’s into a little bit of everything – baseball, drama, math, government – and has friends from all walks of life. It doesn’t matter what town he’s in, someone always says hi to Blake.” Cheesy but intoxicatingly cute.
I saved this article when I was in school at UF (Go Gators!). These colors really represent my adolescent taste, but now that I look at it I know that is has grown up appeal as well. I like that the room feels as if it could be telling a story. It doesn’t look “designed.” It looks like the pieces were “found.”
At my office we receive about every single interior design magazine invented… we keep a library of them dating back to 2001simply to peruse through to find inspiration. I have a binder of pages that I have secretly ripped out… usually of things I’m attracted to (funky, unique and/or old things) that the firm I work for would never like (seeing as most jobs we have are the typical Florida fresh and beachy look). Check out this bedroom, I love the bold wall color and reeeeeally love the paisley pillow cover. I scanned the page from the Jan/Feb 2008 issue of Metropolitan Home.
