Last Breath of Summer!

First, thank you all for attending my East Meets West Open House.  I had wonderful feedback!  For all of those who missed it, good news I’ve extended the open house until Sunday, Sept 6th (closes at 3pm SLT).  So stop by and enjoy the last breath of summer.

I also wanted to share with you another discounted offering from Perfect Ten, available until September 15, 2015. Dreamland Designs created the Minna Set (below), a vintage inspired soft blue chaise lounge, whitewash fireplace with accessories, cookies and milk tray, love wall unit and double birdcage decor.  I can image the collection in a ladies parlor or dressing room.  Curl up on the chaise and relax by the fireplace on those autumn chilly nights. The Minna set is a must have, plus did I mention all items are sold separately and it’s on sale for 50% off!

Serenity Style Summer Hideaway

Serenity Style- Summer Camp Bedroom

Happy Saturday!  I know, I promised I would feature each part of the one-room Summer hideaway, designed exclusively with Serenity Style, in a series this week, I’m sorry real life had other plans.  So I’m going to combine a few areas and wrap up the house tour in this post.  I have too many other projects and blog posts I need to finish.  That being said, let’s continue our journey moving from the kitchen into the bedroom.  Vintage worn-in country charm is predominate in the space with make-shift fence headboard, purple and soft green quilted duvet, eclectic wall art, and an assortment of rustic storage options.  The bedroom area is warm and inviting capturing the joy of a relaxing summer refuge.

It’s time to unwind and de-stress in the giant soaker tub, star-gazing while soaking away your troubles in the bathroom.  Simply appointed with a the basic essentials of a wardrobe, some decorative accessories, and an inviting chair.

The washroom also serves as a backdrop for the living room with low table and floor seating.  With a pallet functioning as a coffee table, multiple pillow options for chairs, hanging paper lanterns above and games scattered around, an informal free-spirited mood encapsulates the one room summer studio.

Finally, as we return to the bucolic setting, the side porch is being used for vintage country laundry and beyond the sunflower fields, in the distance are a collection of rusty old machines.  Each zone of the tiny house has delights found at Serenity Style.

Living in Serenity Style!

Serenity Style- Summer CampI am one of those interior designers who have multiple projects going at the same time.  I get an idea in my head and start playing around with it in-world.  Most of my concurrent assignments are about 50-75% done, so a few weeks ago I challenged myself to finish them before Fall starts.  I’m very happy to share with you my take on a one-room, multiple-use country home, perfect as a mini summer retreat, designed exclusively with Serenity Style.  Over the course of the week, I will post a series of blogs highlighting each area of the house.

Summertime Living!

Summertime Living June 2015Summer is here (Yay!!!) The weather is warm and it’s time for outdoor living.  Dreamscapes Art Gallery has you covered for all those lazy hazy crazy days of summer.

Summertime Ted Pergola June 2015Carlotta Ceawlin, owner and creator of Dreamscapes Art Gallery designs unique and charming whimsical inspired shabby chic decor giving your SL home a fresh twist.  Dreamscapes often participates in hunts, $60L weekend, offers free group gifts and has 4 free mini-mania boards at the main store.  I suggest you join the Dreamscapes Art Gallery group to take advantage of all the great gifts.  Speaking about gifts, Carlotta just changed the group gift yesterday and the new gift, Ted Pergola with cot, is ideal for summer relaxation.  The navy blue and red-painted wood open pergola has multiple uses including a welcoming archway for a garden path, or a shady respite for al fresco dining. Another new summer release is the Mira Cart, a mattress with two decorative pillows, what a nice place to daydream during the summer days & nights.  You could also use the Mira Cart as an indoor daybed/lounger for small spaces.

Summertime Mira Cart June 2015Summertime living calls for a relax casual vibe.  Carlotta has designed a fun alternative for a traditional living room with the Mira Pallet Couch and Cozy Beanbag Chairs.  To complete the styling of the Trompe Loeil Garden Bard Adobe one room shack, I used Dreamscapes Art Gallery throughout the home including: Olivia shelf and end tables, Dream cabinet, Milla stool with books and tailor dummy, Tara cabinet, Cozy cot, Tree wall decor, and decorative accessories including candle trays, flower vases, books with dwarves and crates.  Stop by Dreamscapes Art Gallery for a fresh perspective on summer!
