To Infinity and Beyond!

Sway's Infinity Set

On Friday, Google unveiled projected illustrations of the new Googleplex campus spanning 3.4 million square feet on four sites in a whimsical futuristic design that incorporates sweeping translucent canopies and glass walls.  A building boom is occurring with other tech giants leading the way from Facebook’s new campus designed by world-famous architect Frank Gerhy looking like a sprawling forest and Apple’s new headquarters constructed like a giant circle which has been dubbed iSpaceship.  As designs evolve nature and the environment play an important element from the material used serving as an inspiration.  If we don’t propel design forward we will not create innovation.

Paying tribute to the futuristic design, I’ve created a space themed loft hideout utilizing Sway’s Infinity set previously released at Uber, now available in Swayland.  The deep rich celestial blue sofa with brightly colored outer space print pillows and matching floor lamp is trending now.  I highlighted the sofa accent pillows vibrant colors with corresponding furniture pieces in the same palette, transforming the loft into a playful area that any star-gazer would love to relax, enjoy some games or look out for shooting stars.  Since the latest trend is the glorious and calming color blue the possibilities are endless, from sea to space this rich tone can be easily added to your first world homes with rugs, art or decorative accessories!  Hope you were inspired by the forecasted future, embrace the blues and share with me your styles on Facebook.

Vintage Romance!

Vintage Romance Bedroom

Happy Valentine’s Day!  Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.

Today is the LAST DAY for the House Hunt, so run over tonight and grab the great gifts ($20L each).  I’m sorry I didn’t blog them sooner, but I’ve been ill lately and yesterday I injured my neck/back causing me terrible pain while sitting at the computer.  Thankfully, I styled the vintage bedroom earlier in the week and my business partner, Niki Silverweb was able to take the pictures.  So without further ado, I present a vintage Valentine inspired bedroom using the House Hunt gifts and some lovely finds.  This bedroom doesn’t have to be just for Valentine’s Day, it can easily be used at any time.  The Vintage Romance boudoir has a distinctly feminine feel in soft pinks, dusty blue and overall rose pattern details.  Hope you enjoy!

Countdown!  T minus 4 days till Cupid’s arrow hits you!  Yes, I know some of you guys are in denial, but this Saturday is Valentine’s Day and today I created a romantic garden gazebo getaway that you can use all year-long with some special sweet touches from Aphrodite Shop/Heart Homes.  The design duo of Marina Ramer (Aphrodite Shop) and Jaylin Whitewood (Heart Homes) have created everything you could wish for this season of love including a special Valentine’s Market sim.  Check it out!  Taxi please…

Aphrodite Shop- Gazebo Entry

After your unique and one of a kind experience at Casa de Aromas Restaurant, cozy up at home in a romantic garden gazebo that will be your private retreat for many days and nights. Created using Barnesworth Anubis Garden Gazebo (Dec 2014 Collabor88 item) and furnished with Aphrodite Shop/Heart Homes Valentines release is a sweet and simple hideaway that you can design too.  The inside of the gazebo is intimate and inviting with Heart Homes Romantic Piano and Garden Cafe Set {with pillar candles} dominating the space. (Please note that both Heart Homes items are part of the Valentine Gazebo collection, a set that includes 3 private pavilions connected by rose-covered bridges with animations and looks best submerged in water.)  Because it’s Valentine’s Day and I love Marina’s sweet treats I had to display part of the Valentine’s Mega Party Pack {discounted 25%} including the Salad Buffet Table, Dessert Tables #1 & #2 with animated fondue and strawberry jelly cookies, and Valentine Heart Shaped Balloon Arches, Floating Heart Balloons, and Love Signs.  I also added some recent releases from Serenity Styles consisting of the Love Gatcha items for the With Love Fair 2015 (2/6-20/15).  Finally, I incorporated Finishing Touches I Heart You Stacked Planter (discounted) and I Heart You Candle Trio (free subscriber gift) that matches perfectly with the I Heart You Retro Living Room collection I previously blogged.  Some other items used in the gazebo are Alouette Cupid’s Arrow (past group gift), What Next Tivona Tree Lanterns, and Free Bird Love Neon Sign (free subscriber gift).  I hope you enjoyed the romantic garden gazebo and have a wonderful passionate Valentine’s Day!
