If you’ve swooned over the bohemian Avalon daybed but had nowhere to put one, consider pre-ordering the new king or queen-sized Avalon bed, a celebration of coastal Cali decor with enough gravitas for a New England interior.
I love the marble-topped pedestal dining table with wrapped rattan base for a double dose of natural materials and a perfect blend of city meets the sea.
Here are nine new introductions of rattan furniture and accessories from Serena & Lily:
Shop these new indoor & outdoor rattan furnishings from Serena & Lily:
Serena & Lily has added a wood and handwoven rattan coffee table with brass capped-feet to its Balboa collection. At 46-inches in diameter and a bottom storage shelf, it’s very efficient, and its appearance lends itself to a coastal Cali living room or a more polished city decor. Paired with a braided abaca rug for complete coastal appeal.
The new Serena & Lily Southampton dining table has a 30-inch diameter marble top and rattan pedestal base. Paired here with the everyone’s favorite, Serena & Lily’s take on the classic Parisian bistro chair, the Riviera dining chair made with a rattan frame and woven resin seat.
The July/August issue of Design New England just dropped, complete with a feature I wrote about Boston area interior designer Heather Vaughan’s beach house. It’s a tall, cedar shingle structure with a huge wrap around porch fronting the ocean on an isthmus in Scituate, where families tend to keep their houses rather than flip them. Vaughan happened to be attending a wedding next door and knew her search for a summer home was over.
Vaughan used lots of bright color in her new summer home, from flea market sideboards re-painted chartreuse to consignment shop armchairs re-upholstered in teal velvet. She loves wicker, rattan, pottery, color, pattern, and anything vintage fun.
As a beach house should, Vaughan’s summer house has plenty of bedrooms, and she had a ton of fun decorating them. Each room has a quirky headboard, be it a chinoiserie headboard from Serena & Lily, or a vintage wicker find from a funky shop in Palm Beach. (This summer I’m also working on a story about a home with the most fantastic Indian-inspired bed too.)
Inspired by Vaughan’s summer house style, here are a rattan boho headboards, with roots in Art Nouveau England, ’60s Palm Beach, and ancient Southeast Asia. Shop StyleCarrot sponsors and others for boho bedroom styles.
