I’ve been promising Lulu for about a month now that I’d highlight the newly launched online shop. Seeing how I’m off to South Florida this morning (sun!) it seemed like a good time to indulge in her colorful, slightly Palm-beach inspired designs.
I love Lulu’s style, and am so psyched that I get to work with her through Matouk. (My friend Meredith and I write the Matouk blog; Lulu designs the Lulu DK for Matouk line of bedding.) She is talented, gorgeous, so very cool, and really nice. I haven’t met her IRL, but we’ve chatted by phone and email, and laugh about following each other on Pinterest. She too is the tiniest bit Pinterest-obsessed.
Lulu is Lulu de Kwiatkowski, otherwise known as Lulu DK. She grew up in NYC, Hamptons, and Bahamas, studied abroad during her high school then earned a Fine Arts and Interior Design degree at Parsons School of Design. After graduation she headed to Paris. (I told you she’s cool.) In 1998, Lulu became enthralled by a fabric mill outside of Paris, and a few months later, her textile company LULU DK was born.
In addition to fabrics, wallpaper, bed linens, carpet, and fine art (you may have seen her prints on One King’s Lane), Lulu has just launched a webshop with a number of new items as the start of a total lifestyle brand. Here are some of her fun and vibrant designs.
