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 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.

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!

Final Hours…

The Mix & Wayward Carnival July 2015

Is it just me or are there a ton more monthly events that feature home decor this year?  It seems like I spend most of my time looking at Seraphim blog, then when I get in-world I’m distracted with outstanding projects and miss the event entirely.  So I’m playing a little catch-up.

Today’s styling features Sway’s items for the Mix event (ending July 31) and Wayward Carnival (ending today, July 30).  The Mix event is a new monthly HUD- base shopping experience broken into three categories; New, Sale or Exclusive.  You do not need the HUD to shop, it only allows you to view in-world the participating stores and supplies a direct TP.  Sway’s is offering the limited (only sold for the Mix) Filis Collection in Black & White.   The set includes two bean-bag sling chairs (one black & one white), black & white end tables, paper ball lamps, and decorative accessories.   The B&W Filis is an adaptation of the spring release of the same set.  Take a peek of the offerings on Seraphim, lots of great deals you don’t want to miss!

The folks behind the uber popular Wayward Hunt (in April) have created the Wayward Carnival event, with fun summer items, to whimsical circus inspired products, be sure to check it out before it closed tonight.  Sway’s created Ines Canopy Sofa, a wicker lounge with five texture options for the mattress, pillows and canopy.  This is a must for relaxing sun-filled summer days!  Serenity Style is also participating in the event with a cute amusement park influenced Candy Carnival cart, heart cookies and muffins ferris wheel.  Yummy!

Finally, I mentioned in my last post credits that Fetch is closing their doors on July 31 and having a 50% off sale.  I wanted to include a few products in my styling today, pop over and grab the deals before there gone!

Park Place’s generous offers

The Lexi Project Donation- Haven Chair & Table Clock

Hello again!  I know, I’ve been missing in action for a few weeks.  I’ve been working feverishly on a client project and honestly, I’ve hit more roadblocks that any Daytona 500 speed racer.  Time to take a break and share with you Park Place Home Decor’s generous offering for The Lexi Project, a fundraising event for Lexi Zelin, owner of AngelRed Couture.  My favorite part of Second Life are the numerous charity events that help real life causes; from the recently wrapped up Hair Fair that benefited Wigs for Kids, to Relay for Life SL that aids American Cancer Society, to tons more, and I’m always willing to land a hand.

Lexi Zelin, owner and creator of AngelRED Couture, has recently been diagnosed with Stage 3 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Mounting medical bills and expenses are the last thing the 28-year-old mother needs to stress over.  Over 350+ generous designers and creators have come together at The Lexi Project, with 100% of all proceeds going straight to Lexi running from July 26th to August 9th.  There are also donation kiosks at the event location and for those of you who would like to donate directly, Lexi set-up a GoFundMe page.   Let’s come together and meet or beat Lexi goal of $12k, we are half way there.  The Lexi Project blog tells more about her story, has a complete designer list and gives a daily update on the funds raised.

DeAnn Dufaux of Park Place contributed the Haven Accent comfy barrel chair in 3 different colors (sunshine red {orange}, purple passion {eggplant} and coffee & cream {taupe}), and 3 version of a table clock (white marble, walnut & gold and black marble).  With just one month of summer left, it’s time to start thinking of autumn and slowly transitioning your interior.  Deep sumptuous plum is a major trend in home decor for fall especially when paired with brass and gold accents.  Infusing color and rich textures like jade green, grey and umber coupled with current styles like jute enhance the autumnal feeling and makes your home on trend!  Hop over and spend some Linden knowing your purchase will help Lexi.
