WHY IT WORKS - Serena and Lily Does It Again

It feels like it's been awhile since I did a proper WHY IT WORKS post so I'm making up for lost time by posting 3 gorgeous photos today.  These are from the newest Serena and Lily catalog.  Drool worthy once again!  What I love about Serena and Lily's look is that it always feels well traveled, collected, fresh and approachable.

Here are a few more specifics about what I love!

Living Room: 
  • Unexpected chandelier.  I'm a sucker for great lighting! 
  • Color Palette.  Coral, pale yellow, soft blue and lavender.  Gorgeous!
  • Mix of textures.  Ceramic lamp, silk shade, weathered wood console table, metallic coffee table mixed with great textiles.  Perfection.

  • What a great example of that white 4 poster bed I talked about a few weeks back.  Simple, but adds just a hint of drama.
  • White.  I'm really drawn to the freshness of this all white room.  Walls, window treatments and furniture.  White does not have to feel cold.  This room feels airy and calming. 
  • Finishing touches.  Loving the gorgeous chandlier, artwork and bed linens.
  • Color Palette.  Orange, white and soft aqua.  Love it.

  • Saturated colors.  Blues, teals, and greens all broken up with just the right amount of white.
  • Wall art placement.  Kids need to have art hung at their level.  These pictures are placed for perfect viewing for the kids who will be hanging out in here.
  • Texture.  Love the woven stools and the metal lantern.  Style belongs in kid spaces too!
  • By the way... love the floor?  Serena painted it!

So seriously, do you think these rooms are as beautiful as I do?  :)
