{ What dreams may come }

The Secret Affair is ending very soon, only a few short days, as it closes on March 31st…and I’m wanting to show you a softer, lighter side to the event’s creative offerings.

FairySpringBlue_FINAL

I was inspired by this lovely dress by !Go!, as it’s so very delicate and feminine in nature.  It perfectly suited a springtime blooming photo in a fairytale enchanted forest.  I hope you feel the dreaminess that I was trying to invoke while putting this together.  Whenever I’m searching for landscaping and trees, my go-to shop has always been Studio Skye by Alex Bader.. but when I want something perhaps a little more whimsical and airy.. HappyMood is just the place.  Adding in a touch of both gave me the balance I was looking for in addition to these really creative new botanical succulents by Artisan Fantasy.  Spring is certainly upon us and may the warmer weather bring us the beauty of nature we’ve been waiting for.

[Zerkalo] has been going full on with white styling of decor and furnishings lately with its releases across the grid at varioius events right now and it’s perfect as a nice clean palette to start from and fill in with various neutrals in darker tones for contrast.

Britain Knave-Kennedy of Kennedy Interiors, who is a huge inspiration to me in the home decor realm of SL and Flickr, has really helped me think out of the box when mix and matching certain items and modifying things to change up their uses.  She is also quite known for her love of ‘white’ decor and has done absolutely breathtaking interiors with it.

If something is modifiable, use that to your advantage when decorating!  It takes some getting used to to start to see all the possibilities, but once you do, you’ll be amazed at what you can come up with!
