East Meets West Open House

East vs. West Open House Sign FramedI am so excited to share with you Interior & Spaces first open house for 2015!  Interior & Spaces Home Design is a residential and commercial full service design firm (interior & exterior) established in 2014 by myself and design partner in crime Niki Silverweb.  This year Niki’s workload increased and I took over the reigns as CEO and head designer.  With strategic marketing and phenomenal exposure due to my Avi Choice nomination, my client list and projects exploded.  It’s rare now that Niki & I have the opportunity to work on a sim build together.  We would be honored to invite you to our East Meets West Open House from September 1st-4th!

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.

Happy 2015!  Hope everyone had a great holiday.  It’s always hard to get back in the swing of things after the holiday.  I finally found some time to log into SL and I have an exciting new interior design event to share with you, the Domus Fair Winter Edition runs from January 11 to February 14, 2015 with the theme “Nordic Minimalism” (based on design and architecture of Northern Europe).  Furniture and decorative elements with this style, predominantly are white, gray, black, wood, and warm gray with metal, wood, and natural fabrics.  Minimalism is one my favorite art movement and I’m looking forward to tackling this style in SL, keeping my staging clean, modern, almost zen like.

Slip into a dream!

Bathroom overview from the door

…relax and luxuriate in your own home spa….  Let the warm bubbles caress your body and have a spa experience at home.  Ms. Kyra Ishtari, designer of Serendipity Design created an exclusive full fantasy bathroom suite, the Shabby LaLa Bathroom Set, complete with a loo and shower for the new round of The Collage.  The Collage is a monthly home and garden shopping event opening on the 23rd each month lasting for 2 weeks.  There are 8 home designers who released exclusive creations at the event.  As an official blogger for event, I can guarantee you will discover new creators, find charming home decor pieces and you won’t want to miss this very special collaborative opportunity.  
Serendipity Design- Bathroom
Serendipity Design’s Shabby LaLa Bathroom series includes; shabby chic vanity and mirror, Victorian claw foot tub, basket of towels, vintage French perfume posters, an embellished decoupage high boy dresser with accessories, toilette rack, framed wall art and chandelier.  My favorite piece in the collection is the Shabby LaLa Clawfoot Tub, resonating Victorian time chic with high-tech options of animations for couples & singles.  Turn the dial to the left and fill the tub to the brim; turn the dial to the right to empty.  There are many animations and objects included with the tub, from washing your hair, to reading a book, to sipping wine, or you can choose to relax surrounded by aroma therapy candles.

I loved creating this spa bathroom.  It’s my kind of place to retreat and wash away the day. There are so many appointments that Ms. Ishtari used to beautify this bathroom suite. Please notice the attention to detail with the exquisite rose painted basin.  Kyra also used vintage French perfume posters in her design of the decoupage dresser, wall art, and chandelier.  To add to the styling of the bathroom, I used Serendipity Designs Spring Fling dresser from the March/April round of The Collage, now available at Serendipity Designs.  The dresser was the ideal piece to enhance the ambiance of the bathroom and the blue marble countertop in the wash basin is a perfect match!  I wanted to create a ladies spa retreat so I found a blue floral wallpaper on google and uploaded.  The white wash wainscoting texture is authentic for the era and home, plus it breaks the floral pattern.  Creating softness in a bathroom is ideal, so I added the Apple Fall Jute Natural Rug, Fan Palms and Hydrangea Bunch, Trompe Loeil Ines Branch Screen, and Half Deer Silk and Pearls Chair to complete the space.  I hope you enjoyed the Spa retreat I created using Serendipity Design Shabby LaLa Bathroom Suite, all items available at The Collage.  Taxi please…
