Liz Caan Inspires With “Preppy Town”

Several top designers were asked to give their take on a creative use for patterns from our new Tailormade collection. Liz Caan of Liz Caan Interiors in Newton, Massachusetts, created a chic and energetic design that is as inviting as it is fashionable.

Liz Caan created a lively, bold, room design that is a blend of chic, gorgeous, and inviting. From blue lacquered walls to powerful black and whites, her design board is a vibrant reflection of her aesthetic. With a custom black and white Harris wool rug, Liz took one of our Tailormade classics in an exciting new direction with a design she calls "Preppy Town."

Merida: Explain why you chose this particular Tailormade pattern and color combination, and theme.

LC: I chose the Tailormade product Harris in a custom black and white because it is a classic pattern, the colors are graphic, neutral, and timeless, and they give the room the perfect base to add bold, bright colors. They are not muddy, and I love that. I chose this theme because it mirrors my inherent design aesthetic; lots of color, a graphic base and a mix of traditional and modern. I like to think of it as uptown meets downtown.

M: What kinds of people do you envision living in this particular space?

LC: I see this as a great family room in an historic building where the ceilings are high, the moldings are generous and detailed, and the floors have a perfect patina. A very fashionable family lives here with kids and pets – nothing is off limits.

M: How does this design board reflect your aesthetic?

LC: My design board shows color, scale and a collected mix of furnishings. I chose blue lacquered walls, bright and fun Murano lamps by Joe Cariati, fun pillows, a deep green velvet classic sofa and some comfy side chairs. The lacquer and brass coffee table give the space a playful yet modern spin.

M: What other types of projects do you think Tailormade would work for?

LC: There are lots of fun projects I can see using Tailormade for including children’s bedrooms, dressing rooms, stair runners and great family friendly spaces.
