FRIDAY FIND: THE EASTER HUNT

FRIDAY FIND: THE EASTER HUNT

Image

At #tigerlilysgreenwich.com we are all about the hunt, just not for easter eggs. I love it when I see something showcased in a magazine that we can source. If Lonny Magazine says it is stylish, it is 🙂

 In the words of another great hunter, Holden Caulfield in the coming of age Salinger novel Catcher in the Rye: “If you had a million years to do it in, you couldn’t rub out even half the ‘Fuck you’ signs in the world. It’s impossible.” But you can fight back. Here’s our find. The same fabric with the little positivity punch.

It is all about doing good. A percentage of the sales we generate from the “Say It Loud” collection benefits Housing Works Org. For more information on Tiger Lily’s visit our website, http://www.tigerlilysgreenwich.com.

TIGER LILY’S BLOOM: NICK THE INTERN-ROAD WARRIOR

ASSIGNMENT COMPLETE 

I explained my idea, right? Send Nick the Intern to Greenwich Avenue to hand out business cards. Subject Line: Grow Awareness & Get More Business. The body of this thesis statement in millennial terms is the same as the subject line.  Assignment Complete. Watch the video and I will let you know why I executed this promotional campaign.

NICK THE INTERN
“ON ASSIGNMENT”

 

Why? Rhonda Abrams in her book Successful Business Plan: Secrets & Strategies quotes this: “You must have a mission. That is your guiding light, and the filter for every business decision you make.”  Applied to this experience my mission is to raise awareness of the Samantha Knapp for Tiger Lily’s Brand.  I have learned the following. You’ve got to put your brand out there. It starts with the grass roots effort, reconnecting to the community that supports you. #NicktheIntern created that moment today for Tiger Lily’s. He spread the word about the brand.

Thanks buddy, I hope you’re learning well on the job!

BEFORE & AFTER: SIT DOWN & REST A WHILE. THIS ONE IS DEEP.

BEFORE & AFTER: SIT DOWN & REST A WHILE. THIS ONE IS DEEP. 

“A man is truly a man when he wins the love of a good woman, earns her respect, and keeps her trust. Until you can do that, you’re not a man.”
― Gregory David Roberts, Shantaram

I am not a man. I am a woman and I think a lot about trust. Trust is the marriage between a woman and man. I am lucky in my profession. I am invited in people’s home to explore, develop and it make a better place to live. My job is about inspiration, about the beauty of old and new. One does not replace the other, they live in union.

Today’s Before & After, a lesson in expressing yourself and living the best you.

BEFORE

I found this at John Street Antiques in Stamford. That secret just exploded in cyberspace. It is by all means my favorite place to shop. Here’s looking at you Herb. Herb is this old man, classic passionate senior who loves antiques and has an amazing eye for it. Me & this man have the exact same STYLE!

Image

This by the way is my Italian Style. I am in Italy here. I am also Jewish. Its represented by the Mets hat. Jews are all New York. PERIOD END OF STORY 🙂

AFTER

That’s the reveal. Sometimes we’re better in pairs. It’s same chair. Kirby  Fabric Upholstery, makeover http://www.tigerlilysgreenwich.com. Tiger Lily’s Upholstery workroom.

MAKE OVER MONDAY: BEFORE & AFTER TUFTED CHAIR

 Let’s start at the end and work our way back.

BEFORE

Belive it, this is the chair. I know when I am buying that I will be taking everything down to the core frame, so existing condition rarely matters. I brought the frame into our custom workroom, http://www.tigerlilysgreenwich.com 

Image

BARE BONES

I decided to use the exisitng button tuft as an inspiration and blow it out from there.

FULL BODY TUFTING MARKED & READY TO GO

The result, to steal from the 1980s cult movie favorite, PRETTY IN PINK!

We don’t have an official shot yet, so I had to tap into my Facebook profile pic. Ladies if you it, like us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Tiger-Lilys/127971003888024?fref=tsp ). I will respond personally with a signed paper printed copy  of this pic. No glossy, I can’t get that expensed!

You can’t say that about Restoration Hardware. Everything we do is locally made. Support us, that’s all I am sayin’
