Home Tour: Serena & Lily Brand Ambassadors D2 Interieurs Create a Bright and Modern Home for a Young Family



Serena & Lily wallpaper, yellow drapes and a vintage painting create bold contrast in a guest bedroom.When Kathryn O’Neal-Dunham, her husband and their 2 young sons decamped New York City for Westchester, they found their perfect family home in a classic white farmhouse in leafy Irvington. Though the setting is pastoral, the family’s active lifestyle and fun-loving spirit warranted interiors that are anything but. Enter D2 Interieurs, who, as brand ambassadors to Serena & Lily, fashioned a home that is livable yet sophisticated and infused with the same vibrant color palettes that make Serena & Lily a fan favorite.

Upon meeting D2 Interieurs, O'Neal-Dunham's mandate to them was this: “I told them not only do I love color, but I love texture,” she said, “and I love when things aren’t perfect.”

So perfect they were not.

Instead, the team at D2 opted for layered, bold and graphic, introducing prints such as a bright blue-and-green Serena & Lily wallpaper, which adorns the walls of a guest room. The print alone makes a statement, but when paired with the lemon-yellow window treatments and a vintage painting that holds court above the bed, the effect is both sophisticated and unexpected.

It's this layered approach to color—the juxtaposition of bold hues and patterned textiles plus a third, unexpected element—that D2 says makes a space feel interesting and lived-in. Case in point: orange Serena & Lily poufs are a bold choice in a sitting room considering its turquoise shades and ottoman, but a pair of swivel chairs upholstered in a Schumacher fabric tie the space together. In another bedroom, yellow walls and a pink carpet feel bright and fresh with the addition of Serena & Lily’s graphic cherry bedding.

The gold bases on a pair of black velvet ottomans echo the gold light fixture that illuminates the living room.Elsewhere in the home, texture takes over, adding visual interest to more subdued palettes. The living room, for example, features black velvet ottomans whose gold bases echo the room's gold light fixture and black lacquered lampshades that add a modern edge. In the master bedroom, grasscloth wallpaper in a neutral hue evokes a retreat-like atmosphere and the bed is upholstered in a Kelly Wearstler print that is playful, but not too bold.

In the end, all of the elements come together under one overarching theme: livability. “We decorate for young families,” says D2 Interieurs principal Denise Davies, “so you don’t have to worry about getting a stain on the rug or a stain on the sofa, but we’re still keeping the artistry and the sophistication that Serena & Lily is known for.” For O'Neal-Dunham, this perfectly imperfect look was what she coveted from the start, and exactly what she got.

“What D2 created for me is a vintage farmhouse with all this wonderful color that reflects the natural surroundings,” she says, “but also a clean, modern palette that makes it very livable.”
