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.

Chic Building- Side Table (H&G Expo 2016)The Mustard Seed- Side Table (H&G Expo 2016)Displayed on The Mustard Seed Demi Tables used as bedside tables are more exclusive donation creations along with Fly with Me figurines by Chic Buildings (Hope 6).  Hope Blocks from Magnum Opus (Hope 1) are on the Expo Hunt for $10L.  Also displayed is Shabby Tabby (Hope 8) bucket of bright roses, paper flowers wall art and some framed brand logos I used in the bedroom.  What Next Amelia Bookcase and Desk flank the fireplace.

Bedroom Desk & Fireplace (H&G Expo 2016)As we move from the sleeping quarters to the office, La Galleria gorgeous White Column Fireplace sets the tone and creates warmth in the bedroom.  Displayed on the mantel is Daydreamers Love Letters sign re-textured (Hope 7) and The Mustard Seed Pink Camellia Vase {part of the Bird Cage Floor Planter set}.  Hanging above the fireplace is Spargel & Shines Homes Bocas Belle Mirror (Hope 1).

Bedroom Dressing Area (H&G Expo 2016)Finally, we move into my favorite part of the room, the dressing area complete with a well-organized Glam Closet from Bazar (100% donation item-Hope 8).  The closet is available in white or wood and male/female versions.  It can also be used as individual pieces or a unit to fit your needs.  On top of the closet unit I placed What Next storage boxes (metallic & colors version) previously released at January round of Collabor88, now available at the main What Next store.  Lastly, probably my fave item so far is Bazar round dusty rose tufted Glam Ottoman.  Guarding the dressing area is Kaya’s Ray of Sunshine golden birdcage with hydrangea and blue Parakeet (loved her so much I named her Tweety bird).  Hope you enjoyed the modern girly bedroom and take some time to check out all the exhibitors at the Expo!

All You Need Is Love…

The Mustard Seed & Kaya's Ray of SunshineHope you had a nice weekend.  Today’s post features two of the hottest trends; geo patterns and the Pantone color of the year Rose Quartz.  Injecting geometric decor in your home adds a modern flair.  From faceted accessories to table or lamps, geo inspired pieces enhance visual appeal & create eye-catching vigor to a room.

What is Pantone color of the year you ask?  Pantone began as the commercial printing company in the 1950’s; best known for its Pantone Matching System, a proprietary color space used in printing, paint, and fabric.  In 2000, Pantone created the “Color of the Year” as a symbolic color selection that serves as a cultural expression of mood and attitude. For the first time ever in 2016, the blend of two colors were selected: Rose Quartz a warm pink with gray undertones and Serenity a cooler sky blue offering a soothing peaceful balance in a turbulent world.  The softer pastel palette mixes well with shades of pinks, purples, grays and creams.

The living room romantic color scheme is the perfect backdrop to add touches of sweet Valentine decor from heart garland, love letters, bird cages and candy heart candles.  Love is in the air and with discount shopping events such as Gacha Good Events Out With The Old…In With The New (closes 1/31/16) and Perfect Ten (2/1/16-2/15/16), your home can feel the love without breaking the bank.  At Gacha Good, I picked up the Love Ladder, All You Need Is Love Chalkboard and XOXO Vase Console Table from Dixie Dandelion, each $50L.  The event is two-prong with new exclusive products on one side of the skybox and gacha machines set up on the other side.  Pop over and check out all the deals.

Over at Perfect Ten and out early, The Mustard Seed has the most adorable Surprise Box gacha item ($50L per play), a round hat box decorated with roses, leaves & heart topper.  The surprise is when you touch the heart topper, a cute piggy flies up out of the box than pops back down.  TMS is also offering the Rose Vase with Pearls and Love Birds with customizable love letters displayed on the coffee table for 50% off.  Also discounted at Perfect Ten is Kaya’s Ray of Sunshine Valentine True set which contains 2 sized pink/red heart garland, pink hurricane candle, and red heart pitcher.  Take a peek at the other merchandize available from 10 home & garden creators all reduced 50% off for two weeks.

Lots of other goodies listed below including brocante, the new partnership of floorplan and consignment.  At Tres Chic, Sway’s is in the mood for love with Birdcage Candle Holder & Wall Decor.  Circa’s Living Tea Room Louis Hooded Chair is now available at the main store location with 10 wood color options and 32 male/female sit animations.  Have a good time decorating for the sweetest season of all!
