A touch of gray!

Dreamscapes Art Gallery_Twisted Fall HuntContinuing with the grayscale popularity this year, Dreamscapes Art Gallery is participating in the Twisted Hunt and offering a main gift as well as six extra hunt items.  The main hunt gift is a black and white dresser with zen inspired stone decor/vases, hanging lights and original artwork from owner/designer of Dreamscapes, Carlotta Ceawlin.  The six side hunt items include white rug, candle crate, stool with blanket, white/metal table, books with steaming coffee mug and trio paper lanterns.  I paired Dreamscapes Twisted hunt gifts with Sway’s Erika Monochrome Set, available at Uber until October 23rd.  There are 3 versions offered: Fresh (bright colors of red, cream, blue & yellow/orange), Harvest (autumnal palettes of brown, orange & red) & Monochrome (black, white & gray).  The Erika set includes an PG or Adult animated sofa with 16 single & friends poses (for up to 3 avatars), 8 couple animations, and 3 texture options for pillows.  Also included in the collection is a coffee table, small vase, bowl of apples and vase with flower.  Good luck on the Twisted hunt and hope you enjoyed my fresh modern perspective.

Passport to Style: Far East

Park Place, Far East Style

One of my favorite aspects of being a virtual reality interior designer is that it allows you to travel to all corners of the globe without leaving your home.  Just like in VR fashion styling, I research the origins, location, and decor elements and try to give you a sense of the place.  Last year, I explored the various styles of California design, sharing stories of my family travels.  Lately, I have the travel bug and find myself googling different locales.  Today we have packed our bags and are heading to the Far East!

Park Place, Eastern Shelf Unit

I love the fusion of serene, peaceful, balanced simplicity of Asian decor paired with modern furnishings.  Some key design principles of Oriental style are natural elements, clean lines, Chinoiserie furniture, and circle motif.  Today, I designed a small tea-house space using some of Park Place Home Decor current sale items available at the main store (ending Saturday) and at The Wash Biannual Cart Sale (8/26-9/16).  Park Place Eastern Shelf Unit with Accessories typifies a number of Asian design components from the upper circle unit to the symmetrical balance of the shelving.  I added the Blue Mosaic Bottle Decor, available for $10L at The Wash Cart Sale, to highlight the traditional temple in the middle of the circle unit.  Flanking the Eastern Shelf is the Marble Resting Egret, representing the reflection of nature often found in Far East style.

Park Place, Low Tea Table

Another sale item offered until Saturday is the Low Tea Table with Cushions.  The black coffee table with burgundy cushion seating matches the Eastern Shelf Unit and embodies the clean lines of Asian form.  The tea table comes with a coffee set and to complete the scene, I added the Box of Fine Chocolates (available @ The Wash Sale).

Park Place, Cherry Table Clock

Finally, placed on a storage unit in the corner is the Copper Red Table Clock; the hands on the clock mimic the circular pattern in the shelving unit.  Be sure to check out all the sale offerings at The Wash and stop by Park Place main store for hunt gifts and discounted specials.  Hope you enjoyed the trip and are inspired to incorporate some Far East elements into your home!
