Tamara was raised in Portland Oregon and made her way to New York via Los Angeles and Colorado. Working for a design firm in Vail, Colorado she led multiple projects in The Hamptons and moved to Sag Harbor in the Spring of 2015. Soon after that, E. Lily Home came to life. Tamara’s design inspiration comes from the little things: a photograph, an heirloom or family keepsake, a view of the beach or the mountains, the pattern of a fabric or the color of a vase. Living at the beach helps her come up with new inspirations each and every day.
