Fiesta Forever!

Fiesta Forever Beach HutHappy Saturday!  Completing the three beach hut stylings, my last Trompe Loeil Kiya summer shack is a tribute to the 80’s: bright colors, neon and party time.  Lionel Richie’s All Night Long was stuck in my head while decorating this awesome blend of everything fun and cool that represents summer cheer.

Open House Sign blog

First thank you all for your support and great positive feedback with last weeks open house. When my design partner in crime, Niki Silverweb first suggested the idea I was scared that we would be spammed, or no one would show up.  I couldn’t have been more surprised by the great outpouring from friends, designers, and fellow bloggers.  So, since it was a huge success last weekend, we are going to open up our homes this weekend, Sept 13-16. It’s the perfect opportunity to showcase both of our styles.

Early in 2014, Niki & I collaborated on our first build together, the Men’s Warehouse, an industrial loft space with game area, bar, Niki’s art studio, and rest/work zone with walls of bricks and open windows.  It is the best guy’s hangout I’ve seen on Second Life.  It’s truly awesome!

A few months ago, I gave you a sneak peek of the bedroom in my retro Palm Springs home. Today, we are going back to the 50’s inspired mid-century modern home with walls of glass, wood paneling, and a very cool side yard.  The home features a stone facade entry with modern art installation (& Snowflake, our DIVA cat’s digs), a large wood-paneled living room decorated in black, white, and yellow with starburst mirror over the see-through fireplace, a music room complete with jukebox and scattered records, and a 50’s kitchen in red, white, and teal, finished with retro appliances, decorative signage, and of course a turkey in the oven!  I tried to stay true to the mid-century movement with sleek lines, bright colors, hard edges, and an overall uncluttered look.  The outside yard plays host to family/friends BBQ with watermelon influenced patio furniture: aluminum lawn chairs, picnic set, drink dispenser, and a pink/white camper!  Wander out back and meet our Sassy and her gang of sheep, relax, stay for dinner, and enjoy (grab a beer at Niki’s)!
