serena & lily has suddenly become a stand-out to me in their last couple of catalogs; the styling of their boy rooms (the Ronan room! and that Pez wall in the Asher room) is feeling a bit more broad and I really like it. (Dear Serena & Lily: the source for that framed seagull print on page 45?)
I've learned that authentic decorating (for your home to look like you- a new focus of mine) usually grows from the details built over time-- ones that you love and somehow share some sort of meaning. My current favorite Serena & Lily detail is these handmade Senegalese baskets, made by artisans in Africa from natural fiber and recycled plastic. Maybe because I love Africa, I love the zig-zag pattern and bringing some handmade history into my home- all in the name of storage.
