In my last post, I gave you a taste of Serenity Style Summer Beach Gacha Collection available at OMG! Oh My Gacha event until July 31. Today, I wanted to featured the whole beach collection which consists of a bag, towel, hammock, boat decor, pouf, and rare beach shack, $80L a pull. Also included in the seaside scene is the Vintage Sea Decor Set available at On9 event until July 28. The Vintage Sea Decor Set includes animated vintage swimmer rings and chalkboard “Sea is Life” decor with paddle and floater rings. To complete the shoreline styling, I used the “Sea Side” wooden decor fence with animated pillows on sale at The Chapter Four event until July 25. Lastly, I’m giving you a sneak peek of Sway’s Summer Drinking Jars on sale for Fifty Linden Friday, out early. Hope you enjoyed my mini coastal staging perfect for summer loving!
Transitioning seasons can be one of the hardest and most challenging aspects in home design. A solution is to add the upcoming seasons decorative accessories or color palette. The above seaside cabin living room space is awash in soft blues and greens, a typical spring color palette and the addition of nautical oars, sail boat, seashells and beachy wall art makes this an inviting spring/summer getaway. Get a jump start on summer by checking out the Perfect Ten event (June 1-15) where you can find Tylar’s Treasures “Sea” oar sign, repurposed barrels side tables, oar table lamps, and compass rug all for 50% off. I also used Shutter Field Beach Living Set released for the May round of The Challenge theme: Holiday/Beach and accessorize with The Mustard Seed Beachy Signs, Floorplan Oar Frames and Apple Fall Storm Lamp. Hope you are inspired to change it up and Let’s Get Decorating!

The phone was ringing off the hook this morning. I dragged myself out of bed and reluctantly answered. It was real life calling to inform me to get up, go outside and enjoy the beautiful weather. “I can’t, I have too much to do,” I said, but real life wasn’t hearing of it. So I surrendered, packed the Mustang, put the top down and headed over the hill to Half Moon Bay, CA (USA). Wow, the beach was gorgeous. The puffy white Cumulus clouds caressed the ocean, the sand rippled under my toes and the squeals of joy from young treasure hunters blanketed the shore. It was a great day at the beach; I rushed home to recreate the experience in Second Life.
Luckily for me the Perfect Ten event opens tomorrow, June 1st -15th and Tylar’s Treasures has the ideal beachcomber collection on sale for 50% off. All items in the Sea Collection are sold separately and include: Adirondack chairs, pillars with ship wheel coffee table, ‘Sea’ oar wall art, dusty blue compass rug, sea barrel/crate, and pillar with seagull. I headed over to The Mustard Seed and picked up the bronze flamingo welcome beach sign that’s on sale for $60L until Thursday, June 4, 2015. Ms. Lavinia Godenot, owner of The Mustard Seed, gave me a sneak peek of her Day at the Beach Hunt prize (June 1 to 31), the magical beach buckets with twigs and seashells (2 versions: with or without twinkle lights). One can’t go to the beach without a towel, so I hurried over to [free bird] and picked up the Day At The Beach Towel Rack (**free** for all group members, ends TONIGHT). Finally, I had to reproduce the children’s thrill at finding buried treasures. Little Llama created the Oh-FISH-ally Summer Set (kids beach chair, treasure cooler and sandcastle kit) for The Challenge May theme: Holiday/Beach. I loved creating the exterior seaside styling and was inspired to design a coastal chic interior; upcoming post featuring more items from the Perfect Ten event and The Challenge. Summer is almost here, so grab these beachy deals and Let’s Get Decorating!

Carolina On My Mind
As promised, I’m back with the complete styled Serendipity Designs Carolina Driftwood Living Room set, an exclusive discounted release for group members ONLY starting tomorrow, Sunday, June 15, 2014. Join the Serendipity Designs group for $100L and get the Carolina Driftwood Living Room set for 50% off, plus don’t forget to grab all the group gifts under the stairs. (And, if you would be so kind, like Serendipity Designs on Facebook and creator Kyra Ishtari vows to release another gift when we hit 100 FB “likes”!)
The Carolina Driftwood Living Room is a wash of soft cool blues and bleached birch driftwood. The combination of natural wood with the linen and cotton-covered sofa, arm-chair and lounge creates the ideal restful spot. The Carolina Driftwood Living Room is contemporary with clean lines, over stuffed pillows, matching tables and ottomans, and corresponding furnishings. It’s simply the perfect collection for a summer coastal cottage! Ms. Ishtari flawless attention to detail, elegant appointments, and gentle nods to commonly found sand coated wooden plank floors is excellent. I truly love all of Kyra’s designs but the Carolina Driftwood collection is so soothing and dreamy, I want to own the suite in real life! The set includes the dusty blue L- shaped sofa, arm-chair, tufted table with shelf and accessories, patchwork ivory rug, boat bookcase, ship wheel, beach triptych, and anchored detailed console table. To finish the living room, I used pieces from Serendipity Designs Summer Blue collection (soon to be re-released). Both series pair perfectly together and I highly recommend mixing and matching to always create a unique home that screams YOU! Pop over to Serendipity Designs and grab the Carolina Driftwood Living Room tomorrow, and in case you’re in the need for a restful bedroom haven buy the corresponding Carolina Driftwood Bedroom Suite. Taxi please…
Stay tuned, Kyra just release the Sarasota Living Room, inspired by real life design. I will put my own unique style on the furnishings and blog the Sarasota set shortly. It’s a modern luxury dream! But first, I hear wedding bells.
