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.
