Four Seasons of Boudoirs

In my last post for Parachute Homes, I highlighted my six essentials to a dreamy night sleep.  I created four bedroom spaces each featuring a different season.  I wanted to provide you with some more photos and style card for each. Hopefully you are inspired to create your own sanctuary and take into consideration some of my tips.

Holiday Open House Tour!

Holiday Home Front

Happy Holidays!  I hope you had a wonderful celebration and were surrounded by love, laughter, family and friends.  We, at Hidden Gems in Second Life, wish you a wonderful New Year!

Entry Hall

My design partner, Niki Silverweb and I are opening the doors to our personal homes for the last Interior & Spaces Open House of 2014 from December 30, 2014 to January 6, 2015 (SLT midnight).  We created two charming holiday homes that showcase some of the fabulous Christmas tree designs and holiday decor offered on Second Life.  We were a little late this year because we both ended up with the flu, but we wanted to take this opportunity to invite you on a self-guided tour to enjoy our take on this festive season.  It’s never too early to plan for holiday 2015!

Master Bedroom Suite

Our main home is the Scarlet Creative Lavender Brown house which features a master bedroom suite, dazzling entry hall reception area with mobile snowflakes hanging from the ceiling, a hall of trees inspired by real life traditions, a tartan plaid formal living room, and a fun-filled family dining room with kid’s table.  Nestled in the hillside forest is our guest quarters also designed by Scarlet Creative.  The Princess Jezibell Snug is a two-story cabin with a rustic eclectic vibe complete with a downstairs great room and an upstairs bedroom retreat with sleeping area for four or more.

We brought the holiday entertainment outside with hillside sledding, skating, hiking and a quiet spot among the hanging lanterns in the Barnesworth Anubis Filigree gazebo.  While exploring the great outdoors, you will encounter sheep, rabbits, deer, weasels, and penguins dotting the property.  We hope you enjoy the open houses and are inspired by our vision!

Let There be Peace on Earth

POE7 Hunt | Circa Living & Flowerdreams Framed

Are you ready for another POE Hunt preview?  Yes, oh good!  Today, I designed a pastel snowflake themed alcove in quintessential shades of winter.  I wanted to showcase a non-denominational holiday decor in a non-traditional color palette.  To create my secluded slice of wintertime, I used a collection of freebies from the Peace on Earth Hunt (12/1/14-1/6/15) and one from the Christmas Cookie Hunt (12/1-23).  Snuggled between a snow-dusted window and burl-wood paneled walls, Circa Living Winter Peace Set (console table, blue chair & twig wreath) grounded the space, while Domus shingles wood tree, Zen’s Creations Peace on Earth Art, assorted lanterns and candles produced a warm and cozy feeling.  Binding the pale and muted tone nook together is Sickly Sweet Small Christmas Tree (gift on Christmas Cookie Hunt) with pink and blue mini ornaments.  Now the recess has a soft feminine mood ideal to watch snowflakes from the window or unwind.

POE& Hunt | Flowerdreams Gown Framed

Keeping with the soft rose, pink and blue hues of the cranny, I slipped on Flowerdreams Felicia, an elegant rose sequined windowpane skirt and shimmer tulle layer gown.  I paired the Felicia gown with Chop Zuey Glorianna, a soft blue Kalahair diamond in white gold set comprise of a necklace, bracelet and ring.  I also thought the Cotton Candy Collection, pink sapphire and diamond necklace, bracelet, earrings, and ring from DDM Designs would match nicely with the Flowerdreams gown.  These are wonderful prizes, I highly suggest you get hunting and start decorating.  Good luck!

Winter Magic

POE7 Hunt | Alway Design Dress (Headshot)

Happy day after Black Friday, the kick-off for holiday shopping.   I use to be one of those people who got all her shopping done early, but lately I’ve noticed that retailers don’t have the best buys on sweaters in April (why not :-)?  What I love about Second Life is you can get all your shopping done early and are prepared for any last-minute party invites.  This year, I’ve created a whimsical holiday storage area using mostly Serenity Style items where I keep all my toys, but today I discovered they got loose and came to life.  As you can tell, I was a bit miffed but kept my cool while wearing the Peace One Earth 7 Hunt items from Always Design, GDit JewelryExquisite JewelleryDellybeams Gem Gallery, and ZOZ Slink Nails.  Have fun on the POE hunt and check out the numerous events Serenity Style is participating in this month.
