Get this look! Lynette Scavo


Last Week, I posted about Susan Mayer, my least favorite character yet the one who completes the Desperate Housewives characters. Now, It is another Desperate Housewife whom I am featuring for this week's article.

The Practical Lynette, the mother, and wife struggle to keep her family as she tries to be in control and in an attempt to be back on her career hay days.

She’s one kind of character that reflects most mothers or even single mothers with strong personalities who are always up for a challenge.

Lynette Scavo played by Felicity Huffman


Desperate House Wife: Lynette Scavo

She’s sensible, dominant, and practical.


Background: She used to be a successful career woman until she gave it up for her family to be a housewife. She has 5 Biological Children and 1 adopted from Tom’s previous relationship and a working Husband named Tommy Scavo.


Interior Style: practical and sensible Mission-Style

Her home interior reflects practical decorating solutions, she uses nice-worn-out furnishings, slightly chaotic and a little messy when her kids are around.


Selects sensible furniture in Mission Style Interiors set in Warm woods that can withstand the wear and tear of her busy and big family; chooses large and plump furniture for comfort and durability rather than aesthetic design. Having a big and busy family calm colors are used to soften the chaos, and soft blue fabrics in oversized plaids and denim are mostly used to reflect her family.
