Add a Coastal Touch with Serena & Lily

coastal design with Serena & Lily

 

Good morning, chic readers! If you’ve been following along, you might know that I have been on book tour for my new novel, The Southern Side of Paradise, for the past three and a half weeks. I have had an absolute blast, but am so excited to get a couple day break to go home for Memorial Day weekend! It’s officially beach season, and I live at the beach, so the timing couldn’t be better!

Our Hurricane Florence renovations have been going on for the past nine months or so, and we are seeing a light at the tunnel and are so looking forward to moving back in soon. Going home has us dreaming of replacing what we lost and getting ready for what is, in our opinion, the most fun season! A great start? This gorgeous foyer table. Classically chic with a touch of coastal, it doesn’t get better!


 

Serena & lily - blue and white- coastal living room

 

To us, there’s no more important room than the living room. From family TV nights to cocktail parties, we use ours every day. Have a versatile, durable, and, of course, chic coffee table at the center of it all is a vital part of this all-important space.


 

coastal breakfast room from Serena & Lily with wicker chairs and a round dining table

 

We love a gorgeous breakfast room, and this one practically shouts, “Good morning!” With the sun beaming through the windows, this is the perfect place to gather around the dining table to greet the day–and the chairs are the perfect touch of coastal chic.

Of course, whether to eat in the breakfast room or this gorgeous dining room would be a touch choice. The fabulous chandelier, stunning but streamlined, ties the room together.


 

coastal bedroom with Serena & Lily

 

To us, coastal style in the bedroom requires nothing more than crisp, clean, white bedding. This is too pretty for words–and the touch of sea blue ties the look together. 


 

bathroom with coconut shell chandelier and wicker stool from Serena & Lily

 

Nothing punctuates a bathroom quite like Serena & Lily towels. And this tiny table? Perfection! Have we mentioned that we are swooning over this coconut shell chandelier? Take it from us, it’s even more gorgeous in real life!

We had the best time on this “before & after” Serena & Lily collaboration at our house. Unfortunately, this room is gutted… But we’re hoping to be “after” ready again soon!


 

bathroom with Serena & lily stool

 

This laundry basket and stool were two of our favorite parts of last year’s Serena & Lily Collaboration. Fortunately, we were able to salvage both of them!

If coastal style is welcome indoors, it’s almost mandatory outdoors. We love everything about this beautiful porch!

Dining al fresco has never looked so good!

Just one more day until we’re relaxing poolside… and we’re only days away from Serena & Lily’s Memorial Day Sale too! For all you style needs–especially your coastal ones–no one does it better. (And, we don’t know about you, but we can’t resist a sale!) The Memorial Day Sale will be open to the public 5/22-5/28. Everything will be on sale with code SUMMERPREP, excluding final sale, gift certificates, art, and the limited-edition PUBLIC® C7 Bike. Don’t miss it!

At Serena & Lily, living well (and summer!) begins at home!

Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day. We always love it when you stop by! Happy Memorial Day Weekend, friends!

Here’s What’s Next from the Murphy Women:

From internationally bestselling author and “rising star of Southern fiction” (Mary Alice Monroe, New York Times bestselling author) Kristy Woodson Harvey comes the third novel in her Peachtree Bluff series, in which a secret threatens the tight-knit bond between a trio of sisters and their mother.

With the man of her dreams back in her life and all three of her daughters happy, Ansley Murphy should be content. But she can’t help but feel like it’s all a little too good to be true.

Meanwhile, youngest daughter and actress Emerson, who is recently engaged and has just landed the role of a lifetime, seemingly has the world by the tail. Only, something she can’t quite put her finger on is worrying her—and it has nothing to do with her recent health scare.

When two new women arrive in Peachtree Bluff—one who has the potential to wreck Ansley’s happiness and one who could tear Emerson’s world apart—everything is put in perspective. And after secrets that were never meant to be told come to light, the powerful bond between the Murphy sisters and their mother comes crumbling down, testing their devotion to each other and forcing them to evaluate the meaning of family.

With Kristy Woodson Harvey’s signature charm, wit, and heart, The Southern Side of Paradise is another masterful Peachtree Bluff novel that proves she is a “Southern writer with staying power” (Booklist).
