Coastal Chic Makeover with Serena & Lily

Good morning, chic readers! It’s here, it’s here! Serena & Lily’s Friends and Family 20% off sale. You could say we are a tiny bit excited…. We love all that is Serena & Lily (We know you do too!) and, there is no better time than their annual sale for a quick coastal spruce, right?

Serena & Lily makeover

Whether you live at the coast, have a beach house or are simply looking to add a little bit more of that coastal vibe into your house (vacation all the the time, anyone?) Serena & Lily is the one-stop shop for all that is fabulously coastal without being kitschy. If you’re looking to add a little beach to your life, check out what we did! 

Serena & Lily in the Bedroom:

 

Serena & Lily  bedroom makeover

 You know how sometimes you move somewhere and you get like 90% finished with everything and you just run out of steam? There’s no doubt that decorating can be a total joy. But it’s also a creative process and it can just burn you out. We were sort of like that with this guest room in our Beaufort house. We loved this gorgeous shell console and had the beginnings of a nice guest bedroom. We just needed to add in a few coastal touches!

Serena & Lily  bedroom makeover

One of our favorite looks is a bed with no footboard–and something fun at the end. A chaise, a pair of chairs and a bench are all nice choices. For us, nothing could top this stunning Shore Bench from Serena & Lily.

Serena & Lily  bedroom makeover

It’s perfect for a guest room in particular because it gives guests a place to sit to read, watch TV or simply put on their shoes. Isn’t it the perfect touch? Just add a Monaco throw in a beachy color, a couple Sarasota pillows and voila! Your guests will never want to leave!

Serena & Lily  bedroom makeover before

(Before)

This little area in the guest bedroom was particularly troubling. It needed a console, desk or table that fit the space and a lot of pizazz!

Serena & Lily  bedroom makeover

After looking at consoles and tables and chests and desks, we decided to go with something a little bit different… a bar cart! In this case, the South Seas Bar Cart from Serena and Lily. We love using pieces we love in ways that are a little bit unexpected. Here, styled with favorite books and accessories, this bar cart becomes perfect for a bedroom. (And, hey, you can always roll it out for a party!) We love a little height and, for a space that can’t have a lamp, this vase works well.

Serena & Lily  bedroom makeover

 But we think this Artichoke Table Lamp takes the cart to a whole new level! A previously neglected chimney wall becomes a focal point–with plenty of coastal flair! Plus, we love adding extra light wherever we can.

Serena & Lily  bedroom makeover

Bedding is paramount, of course. In a guest room and especially a guest room on the coast, we love keeping things light and bright. The detail on the Savoy Embroidered Duvet Cover and Shams adds interest while maintaining that relaxing, airy feel. These linens are positively luscious! (Read: Our guests will never want to leave!)

Serena & Lily in the Kitchen:

Serena & Lily  bedroom makeover

(Before)

Of all the rooms in this remodel, the kitchen was by far the biggest transformation. With seven layers of linoleum, no island, no windows and 1960s appliances, it needed some help. We loved the remodel, but it needed a little something. 

It’s amazing how just one tiny element can completely change the look of a room–and add so much coastal chic style! The Riviera Counter Stool in natural is just that extra touch that made this kitchen feel like, well, a day at the beach! The stools added much-needed warmth, perfect for spring. We can see flip flops and sandy towels in this kitchen’s future!

Serena & Lily in the Bathroom:

 

Serena & Lily  bathroom makeover

(Before)

My son’s bathroom upstairs was another case of major renovation and salvation. Converted from a closed-in upstairs porch to a bright, sunny spot for a little boy was so much fun.

Serena & Lily  bedroom makeover

Nothing says “coastal” quite like teak. This darling Teak Step Stool is pretty and practical, making it easy to reach the sink. Rope baskets are the ultimate in coastal touches. The large one makes a perfect dirty clothes hamper! 

Serena & Lily in “Blogging Central”:

Serena & Lily  bedroom makeover

This converted laundry and storage room is actually one of the most-used spaces in the house. Little Will does art and homework there and these chaises with lucite trays are perfect for working. The Brahms’s Mount Herringbone Throws at the end of the chaises are absolutely stunning, give a finished look and feel–and were one of the first things we ever bought for the house. That just goes to show that, when you get your “before” right, with gorgeous pieces from Serena & Lily, you don’t even need an “after!”

If you are looking to add a hint of coastal style to your space, Serena & Lily’s 20% off sale is not to be missed! Let us know what you pick–and we’d love to see how you use Serena & Lily in your coastal home makeover!

In Good Taste: Andrew J. Howard Design

Andrew J. Howard living room

 

It’s no secret that we are crazy for Phoebe and Jim Howard. So it seems to follow that we would positively adore the fabulous designs of their son, Andrew J. Howard. He may have  famous parents, but his inspiring designs stand all on their own. Andrew Howard’s fresh, relaxed style with a coastal touch makes it easy for us to say that this designer’s work is in good taste!
