Scheming: Master Bedroom Refresh from Serena & Lily

Ok, last post about Style Carrot’s partner in design Serena & Lily. It’s a big deal, so it’s worth the effort, for me and for you. If there’s anything you’ve had your eye on, now’s the time.

During the Serena & Lily Thank You Event  almost everything is 25% off (Sale items, gift certificates artwork, and bikes are the only exclusions.) This is the brand’s biggest and best sale of the year. Just use code THANKFUL at checkout.

In addition to the items I posted on Thursday and Friday (books, tray, towel), I ordered a few larger pieces, including the Granada quilt for our bedroom in Boston. We just got back from Connecticut and spread it on the bed. It immediately brightened the room, which is mostly white with neutral carpet and wallpaper. If I were upgrading everything, I might do something like this:

Serena & Lily Neutral Bedroom With Green Fern Print Bedding

S H O P P I N G
1 Mirror / 2 Lamp / 3 Dresser / 4 Bed / 5 Rug / 6 Pillow / 7 Quilt / 8 Shams / 9 Pendant / 10 Hurricanes / 11 Table / 12 Wallpaper

Serena & Lily Thank You Event

Style Carrot’s partner in design Serena & Lily is serving up its Thank You Event. Right. This. Minute. During the Serena & Lily Thank You Event, almost everything is 25% off! This is the brand’s biggest and best sale of the year. (Note: sale items, gift certificates artwork, and bikes are excluded.) Just use code THANKFUL.

Since I don’t host the holidays, I don’t need many serving pieces beyond what I already have. (I entertained ideas of quiet, chilly Thanksgivings on Cape Cod, but I think we’ve only done that once, with little fanfare.) Each year we head to Fairfield County, Connecticut to celebrate with my husband’s family.

Serena & Lily Thank You Event

This year we brought the kitty and let him have free rein of the house since the cat-in-residence is no longer. It’s a pre-Civil War farmhouse, so there are lots of nooks and crannies for him to explore. This morning while I staged photos of Serena & Lily swag for you, he jumped right into the action.

I have a lot of coffee table books. I really love this one—Travel Home by Caitlin Flemming and Julie Goebel, with gorgeous photographs by Peggy Wong. (The cobalt blue glass is my mother-in-law’s collection.) The book features 20 homes with that incorporate international flavor from far-off cities including Marrakesh, Paris, and Tokyo. Travel Home is currently $30 at Serena & Lily with code THANKFUL.

I rested my morning tea (Earl Gray, black) on my Serena & Lily Granada tray. (The silver is family heirloom. I like the pink runner; I’ll have to ask where it’s from.) The tray is a new offering of Serena & Lily’s own design made from laminated birch. It’s available in small, medium, and large rectangles as well as large and small round ones. This is the small tray on sale at Serena & Lily for $43.50 with code THANKFUL.

It looks pretty here, but I’ll bring the tray home with me to put ton the shelf next to my desk, where my tea will live in the morning. A few weeks ago I dumped half a mug of Earl Gray on my laptop. I’m now, needless to say, working on a brand new computer. That was totally not in the budget.

I also just ordered this Turkish cotton hand towel with hand-knotted tassel fringe from the Serena & Lily Healdsburg bath collection  for our powder room. I think the Pink Sand color will work nicely with the neutral sand-toned wallpaper. And be much more fun to dry my hands with than a traditional towel. The Healdsburg bath collection now starts at $12 at Serena & Lily. Use code THANKFUL at checkout.

ARTmonday: Edgewater Gallery

Edgewater Gallery, which has outposts in Middlebury, Vermont and Stowe, Vermont, as well as Bozeman, Montana, has opened at the Boston Design Center. Hilary Norod, who is an abstract artist herself and a dream to work with, heads the Boston location. Offerings include a selection of abstracts, still lifes, landscapes, and portraits that are accessible and still feel very fresh.

Before continuing onto a sampling of works by ten artists represented by Edgewater Gallery, I’d like to invite you to a pop-up event by Edgewater Gallery hosted by a friend of mine at her home near Davis Square, Somerville, MA, this coming Saturday, September 14, 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Please email me (stylecarrot [at] gmail [dot] com) or Hilary (hilary [at] edgewatergallery-vt [dot] com) if you’d like to attend. Hope to see you there!
