In my last post, I gave you a taste of Serenity Style Summer Beach Gacha Collection available at OMG! Oh My Gacha event until July 31. Today, I wanted to featured the whole beach collection which consists of a bag, towel, hammock, boat decor, pouf, and rare beach shack, $80L a pull. Also included in the seaside scene is the Vintage Sea Decor Set available at On9 event until July 28. The Vintage Sea Decor Set includes animated vintage swimmer rings and chalkboard “Sea is Life” decor with paddle and floater rings. To complete the shoreline styling, I used the “Sea Side” wooden decor fence with animated pillows on sale at The Chapter Four event until July 25. Lastly, I’m giving you a sneak peek of Sway’s Summer Drinking Jars on sale for Fifty Linden Friday, out early. Hope you enjoyed my mini coastal staging perfect for summer loving!
Happy Saturday! Completing the three beach hut stylings, my last Trompe Loeil Kiya summer shack is a tribute to the 80’s: bright colors, neon and party time. Lionel Richie’s All Night Long was stuck in my head while decorating this awesome blend of everything fun and cool that represents summer cheer.
The front deck is styled in a watermelon theme using Finishing Touches Slice of Life Collection. The watermelon print sunbrella, patio chairs, decorative signs and punch bowl table are some of my favorite outdoor garden furnishings and perfect for summer entertaining!
For the inside of the one room cabin, Fiesta, I decorated a bedroom and lounge space in vibrant neon colors with Sway’s Tyler Bedroom Set and Sweet Living Room Collection.
Finally, on the rear deck are several rest areas and a bar with yummy food from the grill. The bright colorful Retro Garden Party Set from The Mustard Seed is texture change and on sale for 50% off at Perfect Ten until July 15th. Hop over to Perfect Ten, grab this steal of a deal and why not host a summer Fiesta party!
I’ve been trying to write this blog post for little over a week but real life kept getting in the way. My plan was to highlight some Trompe Loeil Kiya beach shacks that were available at June Collabor88 and the interiors, unfortunately the new July round of C88 started yesterday. Since I styled the beach shacks interiors and have photos, I would suggest if you like any previously released items from C88 hop over to the brands main store. I also wanted to share a few more Perfect Ten discounted items from the July round, available July 1st-15th.
On the front deck of the Trompe Loeil Kiya beach hut is the adorable Dancing Pineapple from MishMish lounging on the Teebrook’s Cubbyhole Lemonade Summer Adirondack chair with umbrella and tray table, discounted item at Perfect Ten. Yellow, ocean blue and touches of red is the color palette throughout the summer cabin. The color trend in 2015 is blue and bridges all seasons with different tonalities.
As we move into the one room cabin, ocean blue/teal and yellow are the dominate colors with a nod to nautical decor with Cheeky Pea Boat Wine Shelf, Sway’s Ahoy anchor stools (texture change seat), Dreamscapes Art Gallery Ahoy Console Table, Floorplan Spool Bar Table (texture change base) and Hanging Oars.
On the other side of the space the seafarers theme continues with the Hearth & Home Old Rowboat Chair (on sale @ Perfect Ten) and Dreamscapes Art Gallery Ahoy captain ship wheel.
Having a whale of a good time in the cabana with Sway’s Whale Coatrack and Second Spaces Life’s A Beach Shelf resonates with vibrant blues and greens.
On the back deck, Dreamscapes Art Gallery Beach Lounge with fire pit has several fun whimsical summer print. The Mustard Seed copper flamingo beach welcome sign greets guests.
Lastly, Tylar’s Treasures Shipshape Coastal Light Collection includes boat seat, table and lighthouse decor with animations (dance, kisses, couple/single sits) 50% off at Perfect Ten. Completing the scene is Free Bird Beach Towel Rack and LISP Summer Punch Vintage Deck Chairs. Hope you have a nice summer and enjoy the rays!
