Serendipity Designs | Winterberry Christmas Tree Snowed

Sorry for the delay in blog post, I had to leave town on a last-minute assignments.  You see, my friend, the jolly fella I mentioned before needed a little help up north and was so kind to invite me to stay with him & Misses.  It was great to sleep in a warm cozy bed this year, last year I was in the village with the elves and boy did my feet get cold!  The master of the house welcomed me into his rustic charming living room designed with oversized log style armchairs, sofa, granite coffee table, braided rug with gingerbread men print, and Country Christmas Tree.  Santa shared with me that he used the Winterberry Living Room Collection by Serendipity Designs.  He knows that I’ve blogged for Kyra Ishtari of Serendipity a number of times before and Santa wanted to refresh his space into a mountain country lodge.  I know Ms. Ishtari personally and she will be so happy that Santa and the Misses used her designs this holiday season.  I also know that Kyra likes to live large in Second Life, so please be advised that Serendipity Designs furniture is not modifiable, however she is happy to resize your items if requested.  The Winterberry Collection can be purchased as a set or separately in-world or on the marketplace (PG & Adult version available).  The complete Winterberry Living Room set includes:

  • Burgundy Red Log Style Sofa & Armchairs
  • Granite Log Style Coffee Table & End Tables
  • Log Style Wall Shelf with Accessories
  • Candle Light Lamps with Blanket Stitch Detailing
  • Braided Gingerbread Rug
  • River Rock Fireplace
  • Wall Decor: Silent Night Love Birds, Wooden Wall Tree & Quilt Wall Plaque
  • Decorative Accessories: Winterberry Candles, Sleigh, Winterberry Green Wreath, Sleeping Kitty in Basket & Santa Moose Head with Wreath
  • Country Christmas Tree with love bird ornaments and flying Santa sleigh which plays “Sleigh Ride”

When I arrived the Misses was admiring my cute Red & Black Houndstooth Coat by Ruby and Gold and Diamond Hearts of Hope jewelry set by Chop Zuey.  I told her that both items were free gift from the KittyCats Advent Calendar, available for everyone.  Of course, not one to pass up a good deal, we hopped in her sleigh and went shopping!  Hope you enjoyed the rustic Christmas decor, the next post will showcase more of Santa’s house and get a sneak peek into his workshop.

Born inspiration!

Sarasota LR Fish

Kyra Ishtari creator of Serendipity Designs used a Real Life photo as her inspiration for her latest release, the Sarasota Living Room.  The living room is a modern luxury retreat with charcoal grey couches and arm chairs, sleek glass and stainless steel coffee and end tables, and appointed with deep ocean teal accessories.  The set includes two sofas, two arm chairs, two glass end tables, one coffee table with books, tulip and glass fish decor, fireplace with TV unit {fireplace not shown}, two pecan asian side boards with teal vases, two glass lamps with accessories, ocean triptych, jute rug, and teal potted plants.  When I step into the living space, I’m immediately transported to a breezy elegant Floridian estate with crisp white shutter windows, sand coated wide wood plank floors and whispers of the sea crashing on shore.  I love the dark toned furniture, rich textures of the jute rug, and excellent attention to detail in the glass fish display, pecan inlay cabinets, and luminescent jelly fish painting.  The Sarasota Living Room set will add a modern twist to your home.  Taxi please…

Overview of Carolina Driftwood Living Room

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.
