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.

Serenity Style- Summer Camp Overview

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.

Making an entrance!

Entry Hall

They say you only have one chance to make a first impression.  The same applies to your home as it’s a reflection of your personality and style.  A great foyer serves a dual purpose, first function and then an inviting space to greet your guest.  I styled a ‘under the sea’ themed summer beach house highlighting a few key elements to make a greeting entry including: table/cabinet, mirror, chair, empty baskets for keys, newspaper or mail, baskets of pillows or blankets for the porch, potted plants, lighting, and some fun decorative accessories.  One could also add a collection of family photos or coat rack/umbrella stand.  Don’t over look the importance of the first impression of your home.

Summer at the Lake!

Finishing Touches Northwoods Lodge Bedroom Collection

In just a few weeks it will be the official first day of summer.  School will end, kids will go away to summer camp and families will take camping trips exploring the great outdoors.  Days spent hiking mountains tops and evenings with families snuggled in their cabins; the smell of pine wafts through the air, the growl of bears in distance, moonlight becomes magical as it dances across the lake and memories are forged.

I was inspired by Finishing Touches Northwoods Lodge Collection released at Perfect Ten event to style a rustic cabin bedroom.  The Northwoods Lodge set consist of log style bed with cabin quilt duvet (Adult or PG version with single/couple animations), chair, bench, dresser, nightstand, end table, table lamps (pine cone & moose), trunks, birch bark candle trio, lantern, decorative books with glasses, and rug.  The entire collection is on sale for 50% off retail price until June 15, 2015.  There are also corresponding quilts and wooden decorative signs to complete the collection on sale available at Perfect Ten.  Let’s go camping!

Awash in Roses!
