 "In 2007, Lilly Pulitzer returned to its socialite roots when it named Amanda Hearst and Lauren Bush as the new faces of the label.

The shade used here balances the softness of a pastel with the saturation of a jewel tone. With a slightly brown undertone, the dusty magenta on the pillows, seat cushion, and lamps adds just the right dose of subtle color to a restrained and elegant room."
