Emerald Isle!

Waterfront BarnFirst, a big congrats goes to the team behind the SL Home & Garden Expo 2016 who raised $4,010,116L for Relay for Life of Second Life, benefitting the American Cancer Society.  Second, a warm thank you to all my readers who supported the cause.  The RFL-SL fundraising season continues with the 10th Anniversary Fashion for Life from March 6th-20th.  This year the offerings are vast on nine sims with daily entertainment, fashion shows, $10L hunt, live auction and photo contest, all details here.  If I have some free time this week, I’ll try to showcase some of the items but in the meantime please check out my nearest and dearest friend, Rhiannon Colclough blog, Fashion is Fun!

Park Place Swank & Gacha Good March EventsThis coming Thursday will be St. Patrick’s Day and I’ve always marked the occasion with a holiday themed blog post. As I was looking through past entries, I noticed I’ve never featured outdoor decor.  Today’s scene was created with Brook Hill Living, Park Place, Tylar’s Treasures, Serenity Styles, Sway’s, What Next and Chez Moi.  I’m very excited to share with you a new home builder, Brook Hill Living who recently released the Waterfront Barn last week and the Chilmark House at the Expo.  The Waterfront Barn is available in two version, shabby or posh with four dock options, two gazebos, and an open floor plan, available on the marketplace or in-world store.

Chez Moi March 2016 Group GiftTo finish the deck styling, I used Chez Moi new March group gift, the super fun and colorful Lemonade Stand.  Touches of spring were added with Sway’s Hana Tulips in wooden bucket & rain boots, available at The Liaison Collaborative (3/7-3/30), and Floria Hanging Plants flanking the door.  Whimsical Stone Garden Decor animals/insects {sleeping cat, ladybug, snail and frog} by Serenity Style add a humorous twist.  Through the window we can see Serenity Style Ly One Way Set, available at Gen-Neutral (3/12-4/2).  Finally, I added hints of shamrock decor with Free Bird horseshoe wall plank (free group gift), free lanterns I picked up at Swank Luck of the Irish event, and the lucky clover plant stand hunt gift from The Artist Shed (Poppin’ Penguin Hunts 3/1-31/16).  Hope you have a great weekend and Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Lakehouse Living | The Collage

Sitting Area

A new round of The Collage is opening on Monday, June 23rd with designs ranging from shabby chic, to classic, to Victorian.  The designer’s new releases will be available at the new Collage location, now open year round.  Today’s inspiration for my great room are the soft peaches and muted sea greens from the Cozy Essentials Lakehouse Collection dining set.  I imagined radiant metallic reflects of translucent seashells that washed up on shore.  I create two separate spaces in my Trompe Loeil Willoughby Lakehouse, a sitting area and dining room.  To enhance the soft blush tone from the Cozy Essential rug in the living room, I used Dreamscapes Art Gallery Olivia rose painted shelf and table.  I finished the sitting room with Spargel & Shines Home Annie Antique Travel Set, Dreamscapes Milla leather armchair and couch (May/June release), and some Cozy Essentials plants, ferns and decorative accessories.

Dinner Table & Sweets

To divide the space, I utilized Cozy’s Lakehouse Collection Entrance Table with two-sided photo frame, filled with close up pictures of seashells. The dining and buffet tables are filled with sweet treat courtesy of Aphrodite Shop, Death by Chocolate new release (not part of The Collage).  Cozy Essential’s Lakehouse Dining Collection includes; mahogany dining table, 6 sea green chairs, peach rug, buffet table, candle display, lamps, chandelier, mirror, clock, entry table with texture change picture frames, ferns, potted plants, fireplace {not shown} and decorative accessories.  The dining room set is a nice addition to any home.  Taxi please…
