A beautiful Cabinet

When I first opened lily-g I had a few pieces imported from France with this beautiful grey finish only to have customers ask if it came in white or could we paint it! Grey washed furniture is very popular in france and i noticed on a recent trip to Sydney alot of beautiful furniture pieces were on display, this piece in particular was a similiar piece I tried talking my friend into buying (it was way out of my budget) but i just love it, image displaying lots of silver and pewter pieces inside this beautiful cabinet!

Renovations have begun..

Today we closed our doors to renovate our old store and to move into our new lily-g home,
wall-paper came down, change rooms built (horray we now have three change rooms) there is so much to do and lots of late nights but ill keep you posted!

simply white...

There is never a look that I truely love more than white its so peaceful and beautiful always timeless and so simple to add colour for a seasonal change!

A Commode

Our new commode's are perfect for a bedside table especially if you like it bigger than a normal bed side, its available in black,white and a beautiful pale blue which i have used as a small side table in my own home, you will be able to see them in our new store opening march 8th

A Buying Trip

I love returning from a buying trip inspired with all our new and gorgeous homewares, I especially love all the beautiful silver pieces from tables to sideboards beautiful mercury aged vases and candle holders, silver tin large planters and lots of beautiful raw oak's in furniture, lanterns and carved candle holders...the look blends beautifully to create the perfect Hamptons style home

Beautiful art work is not always affordable especially if you have lot's of blank walls like me, i have just finished building my home and seem to have endless blank walls so what a great idea to use a wall for family photo's, mix the look with small paintings, a mirror, images from your trip to paris, it's an inexpensive way to create a warm homey effect.

Picture Hanging

Using different frames makes it even more interesting start with the centre piece first then work around it!

Oak french inspired mirror

I am so in love with my new oak mirror I have been looking for a gorgeous mirror for my staircase wall im going to add other paintings and photo images i love around it, the mirror also comes in a beautiful french grey wash both will be avaliable in our new store in a few weeks time

A simple touch

Our beautiful french ribbion arrived today and i love this one "enjoy your meal" it would be perfect for a picnic at the beach or the park adding a simple creative touch!

My Love of the Hampton's

It's no secret i love American architecture and especially the Hamptons look. I have had alot of different style homes and decorated them always in the current look but as I have matured I have developed my own style that may not always be the latest but to me i have never found a look that is so me. I have never liked over decorated homes when to much colour fights everything else and to many different looks are happening! classic timeless architecture like interiors always stands the test of time and years later we are still admiring there beauty!
