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.

Lemonade Summer!

Lemonade Beach HutI’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.

Lemonade Hut- DeckOn 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.

Lemonade Hut- Flip FlopsEasy living is a necessary for summer fun!  Finishing Touches Potted Beach Sign (Sun & Surf) and LISP Summer Punch Vintage Deck Chairs are the perfect choice for summer days.

Lemonade Inside BarAs 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.

Lemonade Inside Rowboat ChairOn 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.

Midsummer Night’s Dream Hunt… where fairies come to play

Midsummer Night's Dream Hunt 6

One of Second Life’s most popular hunt is back for the sixth year, the Midsummer Night’s Dream presented by Kastle Rock.  The MND 6 Hunt is unique from most hunts on the grid because it’s broken into six different paths, with over 100+ stores offering male/female/unisex/petite and home furnishings until July 21, 2015.  Kastle Rock’s hunter guide will provide more information for each path (hints & LM) and a gift preview page.

Midsummer Night’s Dream is a comedy play by William Shakespeare (1590- 1597), portraying the events surrounding the marriage of the Duke of AthensTheseus, and Hippolyta.  These include the adventures of four young Athenian lovers and a group of six amateur actors (mechanicals), who are controlled and manipulated by the fairies who inhabit the forest in which most of the play is set.

Today, I will be showing three fantasy garden decor hunt gifts from Finishing Touches, Dreamscapes Art Gallery, and Park Place Home Decor.  Finishing Touches Enchanted Forest Swing is a whimsical weathered ivy-covered solo swing with 6 animations.  Fairy Set by Dreamscapes Art Gallery is a playful free formed twig chair (13 animations) and tree stump coffee table with candle display.  Park Place Fallen Log Bench with blanket and plants is perfect for summer picnic and cuddling with your sweetie, chalk full of single/couple poses. Below are the vendor ads for the 3 hunt items above.  Good luck on the Midsummer Night’s Dream hunt and have a merry time!
