Lilly Pulitzer Style Interiors..... Palm Beach Chic




Lilly Pulitzer, a name that has long been recognizable in the fashion world, now has a home collection that will bring her same popular, colorful and playful look to your interiors. It has a somewhat more sophisticated feeling while maintaining her amazing sense of style, and flair for color. 



More than fifty years ago, a wave of bright, bold and unique prints in the form of pink monkeys dancing, green elephants swimming and flowers blooming in rainbow colors hit the American fashion scene. It all started when Lilly Pulitzer, a young, New York socialite, opened a juice stand using produce from a citrus grove owned by the family in Palm Beach in the 1950s. The citrus stains that splashed upon her clothing inspired her to create brightly colored designs to help camouflage those stains. These designs ultimately became the unofficial uniform for the affluent, and Lilly’s signature pink and green colors emerged as the banner of the authentic Palm Beach lifestyle. In 1959, Lilly became president of her own fashion company Lilly Pulitzer, Inc.

The initial style of the Lilly clothing designs were simple shift dresses that appealed to a wealthy client. Because the Lilly style was so strongly associated with blue-blood high society, Lilly Pulitzer became known as the “Queen of Prep”. 

I find this line especially refreshing. Whether you decide to go all out with the prints or do white upholstery with pops of color, Lilly Pulitzer fabrics will  fast track any interior to Palm Beach style.




Homeowners can now "dress"  their homes from ceiling to floor in bright, beautiful prints and patterns. The “Lilly” signature is included into the design of each pattern, which is the hallmark of an authentic Lilly Pulitzer fabric.



The “Old Florida” look, a colorful mix of tropical, preppy and Hollywood Regency.



If you are crazy about colorful interiors, prep style, whimsical prints .....


and good monograms, Lilly Pulitzer's Palm Beach Chic is for you.


 Bright, chic and flirty all at once!


White furniture is a staple of the style.

  2. Hi,

    You used the wrong image source for the collage consisting of four prints... I made it and would really appreciate it if you could use the correct source, which is this: http://privateschoolprepster.blogspot.com/2013/02/latest-obsession-lilly-pulitzer-prints.html

    Thanks!
