ArtStar sat down with Interior Designer Lilly Bunn to discover her philosophy on style, decorating must haves, and tips on collecting art. 

ArtStar: You use a daring mix of colors and patterns, but it always comes out looking stunning! We spied high gloss walls, splattered paint, feathers, metals, oriental rugs, Ikat, and a variety of colors the average person would never think to use. How do you sum up your style in one sentence? 
Lilly: Fashionable and comfortable. 

ArtStar: Who are you dancing to right now?
Lilly: Katy Perry

ArtStar: What are your top 3 design trends at the moment?
Ruby red silk velvet, Cement tile, Suede walls.

ArtStar: Everything you do is elegant, but still a livable family home. What are some tips to consider for designing a home with young children (patterns to hide stains, flame resistant fabrics, or covering everything  in bubble wrap?)
Lilly: I try to find things that I love and that I can see myself using in my every day life. 

ArtStar: You use a lot of great art in your projects. What are some tips to consider when selecting art?
Lilly: This is a tough one. I think the most important thing is to buy what you like (if you can afford it).

ArtStar: What are your top 6 favorite works on ArtStar and LittleCollector?
Lilly: My top picks are listed below:
