Have a great week-end

See you Monday for lots of great new posts, I'm really starting to get the hang of blogging and I'm looking forward to visiting all the great blogs out there. Next week is my first buying trip (Can't wait!!!) we are going down to Sydney, visiting suppliers and of course attending Design and Decoration perhaps breakfast at Bills and shopping in Woollarah just to finish off a great few days!
I'm planning on revamping the garden room, infact its going to be our Inspiration room of Fabulous new season looks, always ever changing and more Interior Design focused, thats just one of the exciting changes that Judy and I are working on.
Have a great week-end

Image from Velvet and Linen, gorgeous bathroom one of our favorites.

It is so hard to source beautiful bathroom furniture so we are on the look out for anything that inspires us. I came across the most fabulous bathroom console.. it is to die for so that will be in store in a couple of weeks we have also found some amazing hand made bath oils, soaps and candles. Will be available soon in store and on line.

Whenever I go to the states I'm always amazed at the access they all have to well made beautiful things..I want that for lily-g, unique pieces of quality and great craftsmanship. The hunt continues.....


New Lighting

We are always on the hunt for new lighting and part of our new collection arrived in store today. We can order the same lamps in smaller sizes for clustering in groups above kitchen benches or the largest lamp hanging in a special location in your home.
Email: for all enquires.

An Update

Lots of exciting news at Lily-g! We have a fabulous new owner and to my relief shares in the Lily-g vision, she has fabulous taste and style and I find her enthusiasm and plans for lily-g very exciting to say the least. She has already worked on several Interior jobs and has wowed me!! of course our very talented Lauren will be contining her work at lily-g.
We have already started our buying and I must admit girls how I'm going to miss the shopping, thankfully Melinda is letting me tag along for the fun, she's letting me go gently!
Well my news is that I am retiring from decorating and retail but working on a very new and exciting venture. To our Lily-g customers my presence will still be there as Melinda and I work together to bring lots of fabulous products, inspiring interiors and in store events to lily-g.
All future posts will be from Melinda, Jo and Lauren with guest posts too!
The picture I posted above is from the Interiors of Bella Casa, we love the classic style!

Caribbean Style

Tom Scheerer is on my list of favourite designers and I just love this caribbean inspired home he created in Florida, visit more photos of his home on the house beautiful magazine website.

Hot Summers Day

I love verandah's. The bigger the better. Living in Queensland I think it is an essential part of our laid back culture.

We are getting in the most stunning cane pieces in at Lily-g and transforming the 'Garden Room' into a light filled gorgeous ode to India Hicks, Ralph Lauren and our tropical life style. Think lots of light, textures and natural finishes with splashes of vibrant coral colours. I am very excited!!

Happy New Year

After a long needed break I'm back and full of energy ready to tackle 2010 and what an exciting year ahead! I though I would start with some inspiration from Jill Brinson home in Atlanta, who says you cant have a country home in the city!
