A few months back an old friend connected me with Samantha Knapp of Tiger Lily’s, a family owned interior design studio and custom workroom in Greenwich, Connecticut. Knowing we each had come to interior design from somewhat unexpected backgrounds (me from politics, and Samantha from journalism) and our shared penchant for turning tradition on its head (check out Samantha’s cottage in Lonny!), our mutual friend knew we had to chat.
We talked about the inherent opportunities of life changes and cooked up a little collaboration that I’m excited to share today! Tiger Lily’s is truly a full service design studio offering everything from custom furniture and window treatments to interior design services. The options were limitless, but we decided my desk chair needed some love and got to work designing a custom pillow to zhush it up.
To coordinate with my lavender fretwork desk chair and coral desk, Samantha suggested a Tilton Fenwick for Duralee fabric paired with a coral brush fringe from Duralee’s outdoor trim collection. It was love at first sight and I now want to put brush fringe on everything. More importantly, I’ve actually started using my desk rather than decamping to the bed.
Samantha is such a talent and it was such a pleasure working with Tiger Lily’s on this project. If you’re in the area I hope you’ll check them out. I can’t wait to stop in next time we drive up to the Cape.
P.S don’t miss Samantha on HGTV’s House Hunters Reno Saturday, August 23 at 9PM!
