Park Place’s generous offers

The Lexi Project Donation- Haven Chair & Table Clock

Hello again!  I know, I’ve been missing in action for a few weeks.  I’ve been working feverishly on a client project and honestly, I’ve hit more roadblocks that any Daytona 500 speed racer.  Time to take a break and share with you Park Place Home Decor’s generous offering for The Lexi Project, a fundraising event for Lexi Zelin, owner of AngelRed Couture.  My favorite part of Second Life are the numerous charity events that help real life causes; from the recently wrapped up Hair Fair that benefited Wigs for Kids, to Relay for Life SL that aids American Cancer Society, to tons more, and I’m always willing to land a hand.

Lexi Zelin, owner and creator of AngelRED Couture, has recently been diagnosed with Stage 3 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Mounting medical bills and expenses are the last thing the 28-year-old mother needs to stress over.  Over 350+ generous designers and creators have come together at The Lexi Project, with 100% of all proceeds going straight to Lexi running from July 26th to August 9th.  There are also donation kiosks at the event location and for those of you who would like to donate directly, Lexi set-up a GoFundMe page.   Let’s come together and meet or beat Lexi goal of $12k, we are half way there.  The Lexi Project blog tells more about her story, has a complete designer list and gives a daily update on the funds raised.

DeAnn Dufaux of Park Place contributed the Haven Accent comfy barrel chair in 3 different colors (sunshine red {orange}, purple passion {eggplant} and coffee & cream {taupe}), and 3 version of a table clock (white marble, walnut & gold and black marble).  With just one month of summer left, it’s time to start thinking of autumn and slowly transitioning your interior.  Deep sumptuous plum is a major trend in home decor for fall especially when paired with brass and gold accents.  Infusing color and rich textures like jade green, grey and umber coupled with current styles like jute enhance the autumnal feeling and makes your home on trend!  Hop over and spend some Linden knowing your purchase will help Lexi.

SL Xmas Expo 2014 | Potomac Signature Homes, Holiday Lane Bedroom (close-up) FR

After a cup or two of hot chocolate, night fell on the North Pole and the Misses showed me my room for the evening.  The rustic charm of the winter lodge living room continued into the guest bedroom.  The Potomac Signature Homes Holiday Lane bedroom is a cozy retreat with an oak four-poster bed adorned with garland and wrapped in red and green wool tartan duvet, matching plaid lampshades and quilted wreath.  Oak side tables and dresser, snowflake rug, and a sparkling frosted Christmas tree complete with quilted handmade tree skirt, candle and string lights, ornaments, poinsettia, and “spinning” silver snowflake topper welcomes and charms the bedroom. The Holiday Lane bedroom is available at the SL Christmas Expo 2014!

The side wall is decorated with Dreamscapes Art Gallery Christmas Forest wood trees which create the feeling of Christmas glow.  Finishing the bedroom is the comfy sage and poinsettia Jolly Velvet Chaise Couple Lounge, decked out with snowflake blankets and pillows by Circa Living and a charming holiday themed corner side table with wooden tree and Christmas signage by The Mustard Seed (both Homestuff Hunt gifts).
