Serena + Lily Friends and Family Event.

I’ve written somewhat extensively about my love affair with my bed. It’s one of only a handful of spaces I truly consider my own in our petite Manhattan apartment, and I take disproportionate pride in its making, straightening, and fluffing every single day–and the ironing of its linens every week. As I wrote last weekend, my ministrations in service to my bed reflect my sense that if I can’t do the small things right, the big things are all out of wack. And so when Serena & Lily offered to send me some of their beautiful pillows, I knew immediately that I’d love the opportunity to dress up my bed with something new and ultra-luxe. I have always loved Serena & Lily, whose ethos that “living well begins at home” resonates deeply with my own outlook on the relationship between a well-designed, well-kept home and a tidy, well-lived life. I chose these Leighton pillow covers in the smoke, both in the 24″ square and the 14×30″ bolster, these pillow inserts, and this alpaca throw, and am ecstatic with the results on top of my upholstered bedframe (which I bought several years ago from Serena & Lily, and which has held up beautifully). Doesn’t it look delicious?!

PSA: S&L is currently running one of their rare 20%-off-everything Friends and Family Sales with code GUESTPREP, now through October 14th, and it couldn’t come at a better time for us as we prepare to move uptown in two short days and have a need to invest in some new furniture. Below, the items I am eyeing seriously:

DIP-DYED STOOLS FOR MICRO’S NURSERY (WE’LL BE SHORT ON SPACE IN HIS TINY ROOM, SO THIS WILL BE A WELCOME ACCENT TABLE / STOOL TO PERCH ON)

LA JOLLA BASKETS FOR TOYS AND LAUNDRY

BLAKE DRESSER (PLEASE, MR. MAGPIE, CAN WE FINALLY GET RID OF YOUR OLD CEDAR DRESSER?!)

MICRO’S ROOM HAS A BATHROOM WITH — CURIOUSLY — NO MIRROR INSTALLED ABOVE THE SINK, AND I’M EYEING THIS ONE

THIS SLEEK TABLE LAMP

THESE GINGHAM CRIB SHEETS

A RUNNER LIKE THIS OR THIS THAT WON’T SHOW TOO MUCH DIRT IN THE LONG ENTRYWAY IN OUR NEW APARTMENT

DAYDREAMING ABOUT ADDING THIS CHAISE TO OUR MASTER BR FOR READING/BREASTFEEDING MICRO/WATCHING TV

THIS FUN TOILE TRAY FOR OUR LARGELY BLUE LIVING ROOM

ONE OF THESE LONG BENCHES FOR THE FOOT OF OUR BED
