Although I have never been a “preppy” person myself, I was sad to hear of the passing of Lily Pulitzer. I have the utmost respect for individuals who are able to create an empire out of their style. Her brand was about making a bright and happy mark on the world. She was the creator of the “Palm Beach Style” and notable designers such as Trina Turk and Jonathan Adler have followed suit. Here’s a look at her influence in the interior design world too…
As Lily put it “Style isn’t just about what you wear, it’s about how you live”
Her signature “Palm Beach Style” can be captured in tropical prints great for reupholstering a headboard.
Another way to get a bright and cheerful room, use lots of white paint then layer with colorful accessories and artwork.
And the outdoor patio is must! Patterned pillows with a fire pit and grass… it doesn’t get more Palm Beach than this.
No matter what your design style is, we all could take a lesson from Lily. As she put it “We focus on the best, fun and happy things, and people want that. Being happy never goes out of style.”
