PRINTS CHARM­ING

TAKE A RIDE ON THE PSY­CHE­DELIC SIDE AT OCEAN HOUSE WITH A LILLY PULITZER MAKEOVER.

Ocean House gets a psy­che­delic Lilly Pulitzer makeover.

There are pur­ple sea­horses on the bikes, fuch­sia snails on ca­banas, and cobalt but­ter­flies on the tow­els. You’ll prob­a­bly be sport­ing a few emer­ald green anchors on your shorts your­self af­ter a stay at the newly dec­o­rated Lilly Pulitzer scene at The Ocean House in Watch Hill, RI, an of­fi­cial part­ner of the brand. “Both brands are so iconic,” says Ocean House’s Lisa Glover, “and mar­ry­ing them up in a fun col­lab­o­ra­tion like this just made sense.”

Lilly Pulitzer, the epony­mous founder of the com­pany, was an in­fa­mous Amer­i­can so­cialite who was known as the Queen of Prep. And noth­ing quite says “New Eng­land sum­mer” like preppy ac­cou­trements. At Ocean House, guests can ride com­pli­men­tary Lilly-pat­terned Mar­tone bikes for ice cream and shop­ping in Watch Hill’s charm­ing down­town, where a new Lilly Pulitzer shop has opened.

If you still don’t have your fix, book your stay specif­i­cally for the one-bed­room Lilly Pulitzer (for­merly the Nash) Suite. The space has been decked out from floor to ceil­ing in Pulitzer dé­cor. There’s hand painted can­vases, shell ac­cented mir­rors, cus­tom Lilly print king-size bed­ding

(along with 100 per­cent goose down and foam pil­lows), cur­tains, and splashy bar­ware. Guests will be gifted with pop color Lilly beach totes, too. Once you’ve en­tered the gar­den of cit­rus suns and lime sea urchins, there is no go­ing back. Ocean House, 1 Bluff Ave., Watch Hill, RI, 401-5847000; ocean­houseri.com

Lilly Pulitzer’s motto: “Any­thing is pos­si­ble with sun­shine and a lit­tle pink.” Lime green and royal blue don’t hurt ei­ther, as seen here at the Ocean House’s Lilly Pulitzer suite. CLOCK­WISE FROM TOP LEFT: Cus­tom pil­lows adorn the liv­ing room; aqua blue geo­met­ric sheets beckon sweet dreams; an almighty sea­horse and Lily linens an­chor a fine meal; print-splashed bar­ware bright­ens any cock­tail.
