All You Need Is Love…

The Mustard Seed & Kaya's Ray of SunshineHope you had a nice weekend.  Today’s post features two of the hottest trends; geo patterns and the Pantone color of the year Rose Quartz.  Injecting geometric decor in your home adds a modern flair.  From faceted accessories to table or lamps, geo inspired pieces enhance visual appeal & create eye-catching vigor to a room.

What is Pantone color of the year you ask?  Pantone began as the commercial printing company in the 1950’s; best known for its Pantone Matching System, a proprietary color space used in printing, paint, and fabric.  In 2000, Pantone created the “Color of the Year” as a symbolic color selection that serves as a cultural expression of mood and attitude. For the first time ever in 2016, the blend of two colors were selected: Rose Quartz a warm pink with gray undertones and Serenity a cooler sky blue offering a soothing peaceful balance in a turbulent world.  The softer pastel palette mixes well with shades of pinks, purples, grays and creams.

The living room romantic color scheme is the perfect backdrop to add touches of sweet Valentine decor from heart garland, love letters, bird cages and candy heart candles.  Love is in the air and with discount shopping events such as Gacha Good Events Out With The Old…In With The New (closes 1/31/16) and Perfect Ten (2/1/16-2/15/16), your home can feel the love without breaking the bank.  At Gacha Good, I picked up the Love Ladder, All You Need Is Love Chalkboard and XOXO Vase Console Table from Dixie Dandelion, each $50L.  The event is two-prong with new exclusive products on one side of the skybox and gacha machines set up on the other side.  Pop over and check out all the deals.

Over at Perfect Ten and out early, The Mustard Seed has the most adorable Surprise Box gacha item ($50L per play), a round hat box decorated with roses, leaves & heart topper.  The surprise is when you touch the heart topper, a cute piggy flies up out of the box than pops back down.  TMS is also offering the Rose Vase with Pearls and Love Birds with customizable love letters displayed on the coffee table for 50% off.  Also discounted at Perfect Ten is Kaya’s Ray of Sunshine Valentine True set which contains 2 sized pink/red heart garland, pink hurricane candle, and red heart pitcher.  Take a peek at the other merchandize available from 10 home & garden creators all reduced 50% off for two weeks.

Lots of other goodies listed below including brocante, the new partnership of floorplan and consignment.  At Tres Chic, Sway’s is in the mood for love with Birdcage Candle Holder & Wall Decor.  Circa’s Living Tea Room Louis Hooded Chair is now available at the main store location with 10 wood color options and 32 male/female sit animations.  Have a good time decorating for the sweetest season of all!

Contemporary & Cozy

Out with the old 2016- Contemporary Art Galley (framed)Park Place Home Decor is participating in a new event called Gacha Good Events Out With the Old…. In With the New! (1/10-1/31) offering a collection of chairs and decor items in different styles ranging from contemporary to rustic.  At the event there are a few new releases and two gacha machines, one filled with chair ($75L) and the other contains decorative accessories ($35L).  To give you an idea of the diversity of products available, I styled two spaces; an art gallery and a cozy cabin.

The art gallery is inspired by the Dada movement, best known for cubism with artist such as Marcel DuchampHans Richter, and Max Ernst.  Dada influenced later avant-garde development of surrealism and pop art.  I wanted to create a tension filled space with a feeling of the unexpected including the Park Place 3-D Cube Wall Decor (on wall & floor), Tabletop Wireframe Decor, and Autumn Wooden Wall Planters (on window), all gacha decor items.  In the gallery, I also used Gold Dust Canvas, Haven Accent Chair (Berry) and Leaf Chair (Harvest Gold), two gacha chair items.  Lastly, I accessorized with Sway’s Facette Collection including the vase & wall art (Jan 2016 Mix event, until 1/31), hanging lights and table, all in multiple color options.

Out with the old 2016- Cazy Cabin (framed)The other space is a rustic cozy cabin designed with two new releases from Park Place at the Out with the Old event; the French Provincial Drop-Leaf Desk with Chair & Accessories and Wood Burning Stove with Brick Floor Hearth.  Also shown are the gacha items Home & Hearth Wing Chair and Comfort in Blue Easy Chair.  I accessorized with Finishing Touches Northwoods Lodge Collection (wall signs, table, lamps, lantern, candle, books, trunk & hanging log cabin quilt) and La Galleria’s Pinecone Accent Pillow and Winter Scene Quilt (both free items).  Check out the Out With the Old…. In With the New! event running until January 31, 2016!
