Life is looking pretty sweet for Lovely founder Lanie List. There’s the pimped-out Cobble Hill brownstone, a pair of doe-eyed rescue pups (Suki the Australian Shepherd and Blue the Chihuahua), her 6-month-old baby named Archer, and, of course, her in-demand boutique bridal store. (This year, there will be openings in Philly, D.C., and San Fran, as well as a swish new website).
We’d be feeling green if List wasn’t so, well, totally, disarmingly lovely. The self-confessed goofster-meets-girly-girl (who throws infamous Karaoke parties) moved from the West Village with her husband Chris in search of that elusive Manhattan commodity: space. Now she calls home a 114-year-old, six-bedroom beauty with a rose-hemmed garden. We cozied up on her backyard couch to get the inside scoop on the (bargain) interiors website she adores, nailing a regret-proof wedding dress, and her fave neighborhood food spots.
