Springtime seems to be the time for cleaning and freshening up the home.
Here are some fabulous home, art and interior ideas if you’re leaning toward a “Chic, Stylish or Glamorous” abode.
In my opinion, the best interiors are the ones that follow no rules.
Mix it up, do your thing, and make it fun.
Enjoy and have a wonderful weekend.
The base for Lilly’s classically comfortable living room is a short-haired Moroccan rug, the answer to her dilemma of loving Moroccan rugs, but not wanting to constantly be fishing dropped crumbs out of their shaggy fibers.

Oh So Chic Pool
The Vibe: Southern belle intrigued by all things Eastern.
The Furnishings: Seating options to spare, from benches to chaises, plus a lovely array of blue-and-white chinoiserie planters and one massive ginger jar.
Style Tip to Steal: Traditionally indoor pieces can make a huge style play outdoors.
“Oh la la – tres chic” is this sleek, soft aqua bedroom with shiny mirrored accents and furniture.

A symmetrical hanging arrangement retains the sense of visual calm but can be expanded out or up to accommodate the size of your wall. Matching frames allow you to have fun with the prints or photographs while retaining the feeling of a coordinated group.

Conjuring up magical feelings of wanderlust, a ship-shaped chandelier, found at a downtown lighting shop, hangs over Lilly’s dining table. “It had been hanging in the store window all winter long, and I kept walking by and staring at it,” she says.
I really like these playful chandeliers, so fun.

Making the most of the wall space above your sofa:
Mixing it up with playful and creative sculptural accents. (Love the hot pink tufted sofa – everyone should have one. And oh yes… I love those chairs as well!)
