East Meets West Open House

East vs. West Open House Sign FramedI am so excited to share with you Interior & Spaces first open house for 2015!  Interior & Spaces Home Design is a residential and commercial full service design firm (interior & exterior) established in 2014 by myself and design partner in crime Niki Silverweb.  This year Niki’s workload increased and I took over the reigns as CEO and head designer.  With strategic marketing and phenomenal exposure due to my Avi Choice nomination, my client list and projects exploded.  It’s rare now that Niki & I have the opportunity to work on a sim build together.  We would be honored to invite you to our East Meets West Open House from September 1st-4th!

Bali Ha'i Full ExteriorBali Ha'i VerandaBali Ha'i EntryBali Ha'i TablescapesBali Ha'i Living RoomBali Ha'i Bedroom OverviewBali Ha'i BedBali Ha'i BathroomNiki designed a striking luxurious Balinese tropical oasis fully submerged within the environment and raised it up on stilts with the sound of crashing waves in the distance.  The Trompe Loeil Seaside Cottage is a wooden clapboard one room structure with broad overhangs and open veranda.  For the sim build Niki added mature palm trees and rock walls to enclose the space.  The veranda welcomes the visitor to a gorgeous home with multiple seating around the fire pit, views of the ocean and mountain region, and umbrella drinks ready at the bar.  The one room cabana is divided into three separate areas: living room, dining room and bedroom suite.  The interior of this sophisticated, well-appointed home is contemporary with a strong color palette of aqua, orange, lime and kahului in the living room reflecting island living at it’s best with vaulted ceilings and fans.  Feast your eyes on all the tempting array of delicious delights presented before you on the buffet bar and dining table.  Moving from the main quarters we enter a serene bedroom suite in a neutral palette of white linen and carved wood furnishings.  In the bathroom area is a modern deep soaker tub.  Potted tropical plants and flowers accessorize the cabana.  Niki wanted to highlight Balinese decor with the guiding principles of nature, open areas, light and tropical luxury.

Celebrate America!

Red, White & Blue Beach HutsHappy July!  In just a few days the great nation of the United States of America will celebrate it’s independence with fireworks, backyard BBQ and pool parties.  I love the 4th of July and couldn’t let the holiday pass without styling three adorable beach shacks in red, white & blue!

Americana Beach HutToday, I will feature the red Trompe Loeil Kiya (available @ Collabor88) American shack decked out with Finishing Touches Patriotic Swags 2 Stars (Stripes/Stars/Stripes), Antique Hanging StarsPatriotic Sling Chair (Stars & Stripes), Red Charcoal BBQ & Blue Metal Wheelbarrow Beer Cooler.  I’m already for a 4th of July party and fireworks display.  Finishing Touches’s charcoal BBQ has multiple options for rezzable meats and grill-master poses for singles and couples.  The wheelbarrow beer cooler is dispensable.  24Karat Roux, creator and owner of Finishing Touches is offering the stars & stripes patriotic sling chairs as a subscriber gift until July 5, so hop over and grab them for the upcoming holiday.  July 1st also marks the opening day for the Perfect Ten event, running from 1st – 15th each month with deep discounts on exclusive items.  For the July round, Lunar Seasonal Designs created a fun animated Seagull eating fresh fries, the perfect deck mate!

Lunar Seasonal Design Animated SeagullInside the Americana beach hut, I designed a sweet treat buffet table using The Mustard Seed Lighthouse Table.  Aphrodite Shop’s Fruit Kebabs Platter, Patriotic Cupcakes, Fruit Desserts Dispenser, and July 4th Ice Cream (part of the 4th of July dessert pack) are on display.  Flanking the sweet treat buffet bar are two HJM Designs Gingham Rattan Chairs in Blue & Red, I picked up at Perfect Ten.  To complete the patriotic theme decor, I used Finishing Touches Twig Wreath White (Star Studded), Americana Collection Hanging Quilt (Stars & Stripes), Patriotic Wooden Stars, and Americana Collection Stacked Boxes Patriotic Flag.

HJm Designs & The Mustard SeedOn the rear deck is where all the fun will happen.  From sun-lounging, to riding bikes in the sand dunes, or kicking back and relaxing with friends and family.  The final details make all the difference in a great party.   I just love Finishing Touches Picnic Table w/Sunbrella Blue, it has rezzable meals for each guest and matches the Red Charcoal BBQ & Blue Wheelbarrow Beer Cooler perfectly.  I hope you are inspired to show your patriotic spirit, celebrate this wonderful holiday and decorate your home in Red, White & Blue!   Wishing you a happy 4th of July!
