Got Mail #5 / Serena & Lily’s shore chic + 20% off promo code

To me, nothing screams “The Hamptons” home decor like Serena & Lily, and this boho mama is heeding the call!

Let’s face it: Beachy boho can be drearily predictable. But Serena & Lily puts a modern spin on classic shore furniture and caps the wave with a refreshing selection of crisp, colorful, signature textiles. It’s Manhattan meets Montauk meets Me. And that’s in spite of the fact it’s an aesthetic that got its start in the trendy west coast houseboat community of Sausalito, CA.

Whatever coast it speaks to—the best of both, I’m thinking—we can thank Serena Dugan and Lily Kanter for showing us how shore chic is done. Founded in 2003, today there are Serena & Lily stores in Wainscott, NY, and Westport, CT, as well as the California locations of San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Newport Beach.

Many of the items in each of the photos that follow are part of the S&L product line. My commentary will focus on usually just one item per photo—my personal favorite. But if you see something else you love, you’re sure to find it on the website. Then scroll to the end of this post to get your 20-percent-off promo code, and shop until you drop.

The Ames Bed comes in all sizes, from twin to California King ($1,795-$2,895), and a myriad of upholstery fabrics, colors and patterns, including this beauteous coral, which has me dreaming sunsets. There’s also a headboard-only version ($995-$2,095) and a dining chair ($850).

The Avalon Day Bed ($1,198) is the height of hygge and equally fetching styled as sofa or a bed. Its rattan construction brings an airy, natural beauty to any room.The design is inspired by a 1940s era French sofa S&L’s designers found in their travels.

With S&L’s chairs, it would be a pleasure trip, for sure. The Carson Collection of chairs and stools (counter- and bar-height, all $658), comes in your choice of white, black or natural wood frames. The bench ($948) comes in natural-only.

With its curved lines and cushioned seats, the Shore Chair ($448-$468, depending on cushion cover choice) brings a new level of comfort to the table, as well as a certain aesthetic, reminiscent of Verner Panton’s famous S chairs. I love the convenient “handle” designed into the back to make moving the chairs where you need them a (ocean?) breeze.


It’s in the basket!

Yes, this is a to-die-for bathroom, I agree. But if you can take your eyes off the general for a moment and focus on the particular, I’d like to call your attention to the La Jolla baskets near the bottom left. They come in three sizes and four colors. Here you see the small and medium in black.

But they’re also available in solid white—which is new to the collection—as well as pink, blue and natural (left to right). Small stands 21-inches high ($78 in white, $68 in other colors), while medium ($128) and large ($168) are 25 inches and 30 inches, respectively.


‘Dresser’ up!

The Pierson Wide Dresser ($3,298) also caught my eye.

I particularly liked it used as a nightstand in between these two twin beds, dressed here in the stunning Amalfi Quilt and Shams. The quilt is available in twin, full/queen and king sizes ($248-$358), while the shams come in standard ($78) and euro ($88). If you’re not into the coral and fuchsia mix that has me humming, it also comes in a subtle tone-on-tone gray.

The Pierson Dresser ($2,898) also comes in a standard, chest-and-drawers size, but my focus in this photo is on the Mosaic Mirror ($598) hanging over it. A beautiful work of art in its own right, the mirror is crafted entirely by hand from stained-glass tiles and comes in cornflower (shown), as well as yellow, white and poppy red.


One to call my own

This is my very own Serena & Lily purchase. No, that’s not my bathroom. (If only!) But I do have this Fouta Shower Curtain ($98) in one of my bathrooms, and it’s lovely. It comes in several colors, but I have the gray shown in this photo.

It’s currently disguising some rather garish, circa 1980s pink tile I hope to replace soon with the look of Carrera marble. But more about that in a future post, which bring us to the end of this post.
