The August round of FaMESHed started on the 1st – but you knew that. Cory Edo and Trompe Loeil have brought another gorgeous set – the Oceania Collection. I feel like it’s been a while since we had a new room, rather than a new house, from Cory…but that may not be accurate. She makes SO MUCH STUFF that I lose track. I just know that I love it all — whatever it is and whenever it comes out. ♥

Also – I lovelovelove the wood frames on the upholstered pieces. So art deco. So wood. I love wood!! …but you knew that.

the great outdoors.

I love outdoor rooms. ♥ The new pergolas from Cory Edo and Trompe Loeil are very inspiring to create these outdoor spaces! Available at FaMESHed, the pergolas are available in super packs that come with all sorts of options – one wall, two walls, no walls…lights, flowers, lights and flowers…etc and so on. Gorgeous. Be sure to also check out the Country Pavilion, also at FaMESHed – it’s a perfectly grand and wonderful outdoor spot that you need in your garden.

The couch is one version of the Sydney Sofa from Rayvn Hynes and MudHoney, available now at The Home Show. I used the white one here because it fit the calm, mostly neutral palette I wanted, but you must check out all of the different color options available! There are, like, a million. Or twelve. Somewhere around there. And they’re all just beautiful.

Also, this is my new favorite dresser – the Alice Dresser from fri.home, available at The Home Show. It’s also available in white, and is just so perfectly classic and just the tiniest bit shabby and I love it. Hard.

Meanwhile, at The Home ShowRia Bazar of BAZAR has clearly brought her A game. I love everything she has at The Home Show…I’ve checked out her shop before and really liked what I saw, and this newer stuff has just reminded me “oh, hey, Bazar is pretty damn awesome. Go there.” That’s how my inner monologue works. Concise.

Anyway, you definitely need to check out BAZAR at The Home Show (and then some) – and, you know, I don’t really mention prices that often on this blog because that’s not my focus —  BUT ohmygoodness, Ria is offering her stuff at amazing prices. At least the stuff at The Home Show (I’ve said that event name like 20 times in this post already – can’t be helped) is really wonderfully affordable, especially for the great mesh quality of the pieces. Who doesn’t love a bargain??

When I retire some day – SOME DAY – in RL, I would love to retire to a precious little cabin like this. This is the latest house from Cory Edo and Trompe Loeil, available right now at Collabor88 – the Rustic Cabin. I love the exterior details: the stone foundation with the little ledge, the log accents above the windows and over the porch, and the gorgeous wood panelled siding. It’s nice and cozy inside, with one main room and two smaller rooms off to the side. There’s also a gorgeous fireplace with built-in shelves on either side, perfect for displaying your favorite stuff.

I love Cory’s bedrooms. ♥

That’s the new Cobble Hill Bedroom set from Cory Edo and Trompe Loeil, available at the June round of FaMESHed. I love the classic lines of the bed, and the texture options on the headboard/footboard and all the bedding are great for dressing it up.

I’m pretty sure that’s the shortest descriptive paragraph I’ve ever written. Bottom line, this is just one more in a slew – SLEW – of gorgeous bedrooms from Cory. You need them all. Make it happen.
