Goodnight Sweetheart!

Goodnight Bedroom w:closet (H&G Expo 2016)Today, I have more exclusive 100% donation items from the SL Home & Garden Expo 2016 and we continue our tour of the Cloverleaf bungalow by Galland Homes.  The modern girly bedroom just might be my favorite out of all of them because it’s style after my real life space.  Two primary colors of white and rose quartz dominate the room with three separate areas; a mini office complete with desk, a dressing area and sleeping quarters.  The oversized glamorous white leather tufted bed beckons you to dream about shoes!  The Boudoir Lit in Vanilla by Kaya’s Ray of Sunshine is a 100% donation item at the Expo running from February 14 to March 6, 2016.  Suspended above the bed is Kaya’s Candle and Caged Chandelier.  Another exclusive donation creation is the Vintage Valentine Lace Top Wallpaper pack in seven styles from Irrie’s Dollhouse (both Hope 6).

Goodnight Bedroom (H&G Expo 2016)One underlining theme in the bedroom is birdcages, at first when I saw the spread I was going to call the post Birdcage Boudoir :-)!  If this was a contest, The Mustard Seed (Hope 6) would win for best use of floral display and variety.  From wall mounted cages overflowing with tulips and tied bows, to standing floor units with pretty pinky bird {pic below}, to crystal chandelier tabletop all in pink, Spring has arrived.  The Demi Table and Birdcage Floor Planter are the two 100% donation items, and there is a gacha machine filled with other colored floor stand & tabletop crystal chandelier with 50% of the proceeds donated to Relay of Life of Second Life.

Contemporary & Cozy

Out with the old 2016- Contemporary Art Galley (framed)Park Place Home Decor is participating in a new event called Gacha Good Events Out With the Old…. In With the New! (1/10-1/31) offering a collection of chairs and decor items in different styles ranging from contemporary to rustic.  At the event there are a few new releases and two gacha machines, one filled with chair ($75L) and the other contains decorative accessories ($35L).  To give you an idea of the diversity of products available, I styled two spaces; an art gallery and a cozy cabin.

The art gallery is inspired by the Dada movement, best known for cubism with artist such as Marcel DuchampHans Richter, and Max Ernst.  Dada influenced later avant-garde development of surrealism and pop art.  I wanted to create a tension filled space with a feeling of the unexpected including the Park Place 3-D Cube Wall Decor (on wall & floor), Tabletop Wireframe Decor, and Autumn Wooden Wall Planters (on window), all gacha decor items.  In the gallery, I also used Gold Dust Canvas, Haven Accent Chair (Berry) and Leaf Chair (Harvest Gold), two gacha chair items.  Lastly, I accessorized with Sway’s Facette Collection including the vase & wall art (Jan 2016 Mix event, until 1/31), hanging lights and table, all in multiple color options.

Out with the old 2016- Cazy Cabin (framed)The other space is a rustic cozy cabin designed with two new releases from Park Place at the Out with the Old event; the French Provincial Drop-Leaf Desk with Chair & Accessories and Wood Burning Stove with Brick Floor Hearth.  Also shown are the gacha items Home & Hearth Wing Chair and Comfort in Blue Easy Chair.  I accessorized with Finishing Touches Northwoods Lodge Collection (wall signs, table, lamps, lantern, candle, books, trunk & hanging log cabin quilt) and La Galleria’s Pinecone Accent Pillow and Winter Scene Quilt (both free items).  Check out the Out With the Old…. In With the New! event running until January 31, 2016!
