Lilly Pulitzer for Lee Jofa

Lilly Pulitzer's new line of fabrics for Lee Jofa is on full display in the Lee Jofa showroom at the D&D.  Her trademark bright preppy prints feel just right this time of year, but a little Lilly goes a long way...  if you're not up for a completely Lilly-fied room like this one, the space still has a lot of fabulous ideas you can use at home...

Obviously, I LOVE the monogrammed chair backs (See old post on Monograms).  And the framed fabric swatches on the back wall are such an easy, inexpensive way to add a new print or color to a room - major impact without a big commitment. 

Piping is the key to this vibrant seat - whether you're trimming a neutral fabric with navy or going bold like this chair, piping gives a basic piece of upholstery that extra something special.  Worth every penny.

Flank artwork with brackets and sculptures for an extra layer of dimension - if parrots are too palm-beach, try urns or simple vases.   Want to show off your rug?  This lucite coffee table keeps the focus on the prints, not the case goods.

I can't help but love this swinging chair - my Grammy had one at her house in Florida, and I've always longed for one of my own.  Outdoors or in, it's the perfect perch for enjoying an arnold palmer - don't you want one too?
