Serena & Lily!!!!

 

This stunning shop is the first "bricks & mortar"

store from catalogue & on-line "accessorator guru's"

Serena Dugan & Lily Kanter!!!

 

Filled with all the ymmie products that are available

on the web & in their catalogue,

this store is for all of us

who  MUST

touch & feel "everything"!!!

 

And Serena & Lily's "everything" is sublime!!!

 

Great products, great colors & patterns,

great quality, & a stunning shopping environment ...

what else can an "accessorator" ask for????

 

Oh yes, there are design savvy salespeople

to help you with your selections too!!!

 

Serena & Lily is this summer's newest

accessorator "must-shop"!!!

A fabulous selection of international galleries 
showing paintings, drawings,

Spanish industrial designer Alvaro Catalan de Ocon
worked with displaced Columbian craftsmen,
to recycle plastic waste 
that is polluting the Amazon River.

The collaboration resulted in the creation
of this divine light fixtures .... 

The shades are woven by artisans 
over recycled plastic bottles, 
& are then sent to Madrid 
to be made into stunning light fixtures!!!

This fixture "accessoration supreme" 
was hanging in the garden at
in Milan!!!

Buckling Up in Milan ...... An Unusual Kinda' Bench!!!

Benches are a "hot trend" this spring ......

& I especially adore this brilliant "do-it-yourself" group
that were "hanging around" the Lambrate 

Genius isn't it .....
especially the nice touch of neon orange,
another 2013 trend!!!
