Outdoor Living

Spring is finally here in Connecticut! How excited I am to finally be outside and enjoy my backyard again! I love my back yard. From my screened in porch I can enjoy my patio, pool and beautiful gardens.

My Tulips are in full bloom this week, which always puts a smile on my face. Here are a few snap shot of my garden as it starts to bloom.Birdbath in the gardenDid you know that you can actually make your back yard into another part of your house? It’s so nice to relax on your deck and BBQ with family and friends. I cant wait to start hosting again.

Whether you have a patio or deck you can spruce it up into an amazing area. Outdoor furniture is so much more comfortable now.

So many different styles of furniture from teak to metal to wicker and so many choices for cushions. I’ll show you a few of my favorites.

Thinking of replacing your old patio furniture this spring? I love the curved large woven back on this collection called Source. Here it again in espresso.

Can you imagine yourself lounging on these wicker pieces named Havana this summer?

How about dinner in the garden, dining on this set called Fusion by Gloster. It’s the perfect balance of comfort, using metal and wood. So simplistic and clean.A rock garden and pond set along side a wonderful deck with a place to unwind and reflect on big cozy outdoor furniture makes for a great back yard feature. Adding beautiful new plants for more color is the perfect touch.

We deserve to finally be outside after this long winter. Contact me at Debra Lipset Designs for new styles of outdoor furniture. I can work with you to help you realize your back yard potential.

Happy Spring,







Happy Spaces

Hi all, the sun is out and it teases me of spring but the chill is still in the air, I can’t believe it snowed yesterday.  It’s time to change the ho-hum of the family room and start to look forward to spring. I’ve had enough of these cold dreary days! For a great new look see the photo below.




I’ve spent most of the fall and winter in my sittingroom (see photo below), its my favorite place to hangout, and enjoy my family and friends.  But every now and again I have to mix things up in there. Have you ever thought that just having a cozy chair would be a perfect addition around the fireplace? By adding two new chairs and swapping out art work and adding a few new pillows I gave my sitting room a new feel & look.





I love the pop of orange you see here in the pillows and tray, they work so nicely with the gray pillows and area rug. It feels uplifting for the spring.

After this long winter it’s common to grow tired of your old furnishings especially if they are looking worn out. Spring is the perfect time to redecorate don’t you think?

I know getting a new sofa and chairs to hang out in could make the difference in a room to create a warm and cozy environment, and painting the walls can change the entire feel of a space energizing it and making it feel light and airy. These slipper chairs done in animal print add just the right amount of zing to the space.


If you need help energizing your home for Spring reach out to me, I would love to help you pick out a sofa and chairs or paint colors for your room, so you can make your home feel fresh for spring. You can always find me at debra@lipsetdesigns.com.



Accessorize For The Seasons


Who says having the same curtains, pillows, lampshades, comforter and other accessories has to be the same all year round? Not me!

Its amazing how the rooms in your home can warm your heart and open you up to a whole new energy. The old saying, “Home is where the heart is! Its true!

Its kind of like changing your wardrobe for every season. Its exciting to put on your spring shorts and sandals, or new sun dress after a long winter and enjoy the warmth of your surroundings.

The same holds true with your home. Just like clothes seasonal colors can change the mood in your room.

Adding even the smallest details in your bathroom like the acrylic pink upholstered chair and the vases filled with pink flowers (below) add color and energy to the space

Change out a few pillows, an ottoman, add a new coat of paint on your walls, a new throw blanket on the arm of the sofa in a bright new shade along with new lamps or other accessories like a large tray or vase and rotating artwork on your walls will definitely bring a smile to your face and can even make your home feel brand new! Let me know if you agree and if you are planning on getting rid of the winter dull drums by accessorizing for spring. Remember if you need help I am always here for you… Debra Lipset Designs can take the guesswork out of it for you, so all you have to do is enjoy your home. I cant wait to share more design ideas next week.

Let me know how you plan to spruce up for spring.
