Collabor88 is celebrating its second birthday!! This month’s theme is Razzle Dazzle, and Collabor88 is packed with gorgeous goodies with amazing 20s aesthetics. You must visit to see it all!

My music soul mate, Tegan Serin of floorplan., has a super precious vanity set available – the Boudoir Vanity. The vanity is available in pink, black, and white, with subtle curves and just the right amount of daintiness. ♥

I could use a RL vacation spot like this. Just plop it down in the middle of my backyard. Grass cutting optional. Paradise.

This is the Midsummer Retreat from my music soulmate, Tegan Serin of floorplan., available right now at Collabor88. The set includes the shelter and the hanging bed – btw, you can NEVER go wrong with any sort of furniture that hangs – and the bed has all sorts of lovely texture options for the bedding. I went with all white because I wanted a very calm, peaceful, sort of zen vibe — aside from the bright red marquee letters, of course. Gotta have that splash of unexpected.

Check out the Midsummer Retreat right now – right now! – at Collabor88! [SLurl]

I’ll be by the pool.


Another great house at Collabor88 this month: the Palm Springs Cottage from Barnesworth Anubis. This feels very mid-century Hollywood to me…like I need large sunglasses, a floppy yet stylish hat, and a tall drink whilst I lounge on a chaise by the pool. That would be cool.

The house and courtyard are surrounded by a privacy wall which gives a nice feeling of a luxurious hideaway retreat. Inside is a nice open living area with a ton of windows, which I love. I also really like that Barnes has used transom windows on the side and back walls – that way you still get the airy feeling while still having wall space for decor. That’s just smart thinking.

For my tastes, of course, I would love to see more shadows with the furniture and a bit more shading in the walls and floor. Barnes does a really great job, though, of mixing different textures so that his builds are always very visually interesting, and don’t feel at all one-dimensional.

I love those screens. ♥

You can pick up the Palm Springs Cottage at this month’s Collabor88, right here [SLurl]! You get both a house and skybox version, and you can pick it up unfurnished or furnished! 

Mad about NYC66


Hi! Collabor88! Enough said!

Ok, almost enough said. Cory Edo of Trompe Loeil — who is a total superstar on this blog lately, right? — has shown up to Collabor88 with my favorite skybox yet: the NYC66 Skybox.

If you watch Mad Men, you’ll recognize this as Don Draper’s fancy city apartment. If you don’t watch Mad Men, then you’ll recognize this as a groovy awesome 60s mod pad. That’s right – GROOVY. It’s all mesh, too, and the shading and depth of the textures are amazing. Of course. I could probably write a bunch more words…as I do…but I’mma refrain and just let the pics do the talking. 


Okay, a few more words. 🙂 I lovelovelove details, as you may know…and I lovelovelove this stuff:

The light streaming from the bedroom window and across the floor and up the door…the ceilings in the living room ♥…and ohmygoodness the precious little light switches. Perfect!

The NYC66 Skybox (and also a furniture pack with recolors of the furniture and lamps) is available now at Collabor88! [SLurl]
