Serena & Lily is one of those brands I shop often and love working with because I can always attest to the incredible quality and classic nature of their home items. Anytime I order something from them I know it’s going to be well constructed of nice materials and will be something I love for years to come. They reached out and asked if I wanted to share some of my favorite things from their shop that I’ve lived with for over three months, and of course my answer was yes! I decided to take it up a notch and share 10 tried & true favorite items that have lived (and we’ve loved) in our house for over a year! I also recently purchased a few new items, so I snuck those into the post for you to peak at as well. They should be arriving to me soon and I’ll be sure to share! Click through to check out some of my personal favorite home staples from one of my favorite resources, Serena & Lily…

When shopping for bedding, Serena & Lily is one of the first places I turn. Our guest bed is decked out with their beautiful sheet set, coverlet, and duvet. This bed has been styled like this for a couple of years and our friends & family who have slept in this room have all asked where to find the bedding because it’s so comfortable and nice. I also love the way it looks!
In addition to bedding, I also enjoy perusing their decor section. I ended up with this heavy duty laundry basket a couple years ago and have been using it since. It’s durable, a nice large size, and the wooden handle shape is so interesting. I like the geometric aesthetic.
You’ll probably recognize lots of S&L pillows throughout our home… mostly in our outdoor areas. I’ve had these striped tassel pillows for over four years and they’re still holding up nicely. I just pulled them out for the season and styled them on our balcony for the third year in a row- before that, they lived in our bedroom.
Over the years, I’ve also collected plenty of throws… my favorite being the alpaca fringe throw, pictured below. It’s super soft, comes in the best colors, and is one that will withstand the test of time.
These are 10 items we’ve used and loved in our home- all for over a year timespan. Many of them are going on two, three, or even four years!

I’d say 90% of the towels and bath textiles in our home came from Serena & Lily. Emmett & I actually swiped the oversized plush towels, pictured below, from the guest bath and have been using them in our primary bath. We also enjoy their bath mats. They drape beautifully on the edge of the tub and are really absorbent.
It probably comes as no surprise that the textiles in our basement bath are also S&L brand. These might actually be my favorite because they’re very lightweight, ultra absorbent, and are Turkish towels- so they have a really luxe feel to them.
I hate to admit that I’ve only showered in our basement once (for the sake of testing it out before house guests arrived), but what a luxury to pull one of those towels from the towel warmer after a shower. It’s SO nice!
Perhaps you remember my previous post on favorite lighting from them? I shared it exactly one year ago! Anyway, I’m still loving my plaster-looking floor lamp. It’s currently living in our basement media room…
I also bought a few new things, and I’ll be sure to update you on how I’m liking them once they arrive. Want to see? I ordered this stunning bench for our garden, these colored tapered candles for spring & summer, and this rug for our formal living room. Since swapping the rug in our living room, I’ve been struggling to find a durable runner to live in front of our french doors that leads to the backyard. This one will hopefully look really nice with our blue sofa and will be a nice contrast to the larger area rug. It definitely fits the floor plan…
Do you ever take note of what items in your home have been around for a long time and study where they came from? I think that’s a great way to analyze our shopping habits and hone in on where our money is best spent on future purchases that are more likely to withstand the test of time. For me, it’s always the vintage & antique items, one-of-a-kind things, and pieces from quality retailers or small businesses. I hope this was a fun glimpse at some things I’ve kept around for quite awhile and can highly recommend. Wishing you all a fun and beautiful weekend ahead! I’ll see you back here on Monday, friends.
