Recently I became familiar with the work of New York City based designer Lilly Bunn, and I love her traditional meets funky aesthetic. Lilly started out as a fashion editor at Town and Country and launched her own design firm in 2009 after working for McMillen, Inc. She uses a mix of bright colors and bold patterns layered over neutral anchor pieces to create a fresh, contemporary, yet timeless look that’s all her own. Her rooms are classic but always interesting and fresh. Here are a few of my favorites from her portfolio:
I love the wild wallpaper and the lovely floral chair, and also really into that lucite magazine holder!
This is a family home she designed:
I LOVE those multi-dotted pillowcases…I think they’re D. Porthault? Also how cool is that navy tufted headboard?
She dubbed this project “Downtown Traditional”:
Wallpaper! Also love those sconces.
A prewar Park Avenue apartment:
Square backed chairs, like I talked about in this post.
Such a soothing and bright bedroom – a sanctuary.
An Upper West Side family home:
Traditional meets modern.
Serene and classic for the bedroom.
