Last year, one of my clients emailed me and said something about seeing my blog mentioned on Vogue’s website. I was curious and thrilled. The mention was in an Vogue ‘It Girl’ article about Lilly Bunn Weekes, a born-and-raised Manhattanite, mother of two and talented interior designer.
She is gorgeous, stylish, accomplished and is friends with NY’s social elite, so I wasn’t expecting much after reaching out to her to say thank you for the mention. But, instead, I discovered that Lilly is warm and very friendly and it’s been such a treat to get to know her a little.
Lilly worked for Town and Country for five years and then McMillen for two years, where she started McMillen Plus with Ann Pyne. Now Lilly is taking on her own design clients, AND she has a new blog! Aren’t we lucky?
Want to see some of her recent work? I knew you did.
This is a wider shot of the room Lilly is photographed in above. The repro antique chairs were upholstered in Madeline Weinrib’s Purple Mu. The table cloth is made from Pindler & Pindler fabric with trim from M&J Trimmings. The rug is by Stark. Grasscloth by Phillip Jeffries.
Lilly blogs about some of her client ideas. These are two different renderings for the same room.
Could you die over these blue lacquered walls? This was one of the rooms Lilly designed while working on the McMillen Plus team. I think the Schumacher fabric on the chair is such a fun punch. The walls are painted in Benjamin Moore’s Hale Navy in satin and then given a coat of poly. The lamps are from a really great store in Southampton called homenature.
And how adorable is this little girl’s room Lilly is working on in Locust Valley? The decorative painting was done by Lilly’s sister, Palmer.
I spy Porthault…
