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.

Serenity Style Summer Hideaway

Serenity Style- Summer Camp Bedroom

Happy Saturday!  I know, I promised I would feature each part of the one-room Summer hideaway, designed exclusively with Serenity Style, in a series this week, I’m sorry real life had other plans.  So I’m going to combine a few areas and wrap up the house tour in this post.  I have too many other projects and blog posts I need to finish.  That being said, let’s continue our journey moving from the kitchen into the bedroom.  Vintage worn-in country charm is predominate in the space with make-shift fence headboard, purple and soft green quilted duvet, eclectic wall art, and an assortment of rustic storage options.  The bedroom area is warm and inviting capturing the joy of a relaxing summer refuge.

It’s time to unwind and de-stress in the giant soaker tub, star-gazing while soaking away your troubles in the bathroom.  Simply appointed with a the basic essentials of a wardrobe, some decorative accessories, and an inviting chair.

Serenity Style- Summer Camp Living Room

Serenity Style- Summer Camp Overview

The washroom also serves as a backdrop for the living room with low table and floor seating.  With a pallet functioning as a coffee table, multiple pillow options for chairs, hanging paper lanterns above and games scattered around, an informal free-spirited mood encapsulates the one room summer studio.

Serenity Style- Summer Camp Laundry

Finally, as we return to the bucolic setting, the side porch is being used for vintage country laundry and beyond the sunflower fields, in the distance are a collection of rusty old machines.  Each zone of the tiny house has delights found at Serenity Style.

Daydream Believer…

Angel Summer Tent- The Lexi project

Happy August!  I can’t believe it August, can you?  Not sure where the time went, but I’m in denial.  On the up side, just 4 months till Christmas and soon I can start styling interiors and exteriors for my favorite season, Fall.  But before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s squeeze out every last-minute of summer.  When I think of this time of the year, I’m transported back to my childhood with tons of sleepover parties under the stars, party games and our best-loved (often well-worn out) teddy bears and dollies along for the fun.  Fast forward a few years, the kids are all grown-up and the stuffies are left to play and cause mischief.  Using Serenity Style Angel Summer Tent from The Lexi Project, I created a whimsical corner hideaway.  The Lexi Project is going strong and each day the grand donation tally is updated on the The Lexi Project blog.  We still have not reached the goal of $12k, but I have faith we will.  You have eight more shopping days (August 9, 2015) to check out over 350+ designers and creators exclusive items with 100% of all proceeds donated to The Lexi Fund.  So, get shopping and know that your purchase will help one of our own Second Life residents.

The whole space was created with Serenity Style products.  I would particularly like to highlight The Country Drawer set available today ONLY (Saturday, August 1, 2015) for The Neighbourhood and The Country Chest & Cutie Monster from Cosmopolitan Bi-Weekly Event ending tomorrow Sunday, August 2, 2015.  I also want to feature the Gypsy Soul Dreamcatcher over the tent bed, part of  the My Gypsy Soul Caravan on sale at Tres Chic until August 5th and the Wooden Swing Bench & Tic-Toc Wall Art available at The Fantasy Collective through August 15. Have fun with these cool unique design offers.  Happy weekend & happy shopping!

Fiesta Forever!

Fiesta Forever Beach HutHappy 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.

Summertime Living!

Summertime Living June 2015Summer is here (Yay!!!) The weather is warm and it’s time for outdoor living.  Dreamscapes Art Gallery has you covered for all those lazy hazy crazy days of summer.

Summertime Ted Pergola June 2015Carlotta Ceawlin, owner and creator of Dreamscapes Art Gallery designs unique and charming whimsical inspired shabby chic decor giving your SL home a fresh twist.  Dreamscapes often participates in hunts, $60L weekend, offers free group gifts and has 4 free mini-mania boards at the main store.  I suggest you join the Dreamscapes Art Gallery group to take advantage of all the great gifts.  Speaking about gifts, Carlotta just changed the group gift yesterday and the new gift, Ted Pergola with cot, is ideal for summer relaxation.  The navy blue and red-painted wood open pergola has multiple uses including a welcoming archway for a garden path, or a shady respite for al fresco dining. Another new summer release is the Mira Cart, a mattress with two decorative pillows, what a nice place to daydream during the summer days & nights.  You could also use the Mira Cart as an indoor daybed/lounger for small spaces.

Summertime Mira Cart June 2015Summertime living calls for a relax casual vibe.  Carlotta has designed a fun alternative for a traditional living room with the Mira Pallet Couch and Cozy Beanbag Chairs.  To complete the styling of the Trompe Loeil Garden Bard Adobe one room shack, I used Dreamscapes Art Gallery throughout the home including: Olivia shelf and end tables, Dream cabinet, Milla stool with books and tailor dummy, Tara cabinet, Cozy cot, Tree wall decor, and decorative accessories including candle trays, flower vases, books with dwarves and crates.  Stop by Dreamscapes Art Gallery for a fresh perspective on summer!
