Stylist Lili Diallo‘s Brooklyn home is just perfect. Great mix of modern designs and vintage finds. Such personality! I always think the interior of the home is the reflected heart of the inhabitants. It should be a collection rather than one sweep deal.

Suzani has been hot for some time now in the world of interiors- used for all products ranging from bedding to decorative pillows. And why not? the colors and patterns are so wonderful in any home.
It’s always good to reference back to the real suzani from time to time… away from the modern interpretations.
