Summer Treehouse Design

A huge thanks to World Market for sponsoring today's post!

As a blogger, I have connected with so many wonderful companies. One of those awesome companies is World Market. Before I ever partnered with World Market, I was an avid shopper there. I've always been very familiar with their products and would recommend them to friends and family. Recently, I had an opportunity to apply to one of their campaigns and I'm going to share that with you today!

World Market was given the chance to work with the incredibly talented (and not bad on the eyes either) Gilles Marini. You might remember him from Sex and the City the movie (shower scene...rining a bell?). Yeah I thought you might remember him! ;) He was designing a treehouse for his adorable daughter and needed the assistance of a World Market blogger to help him find the perfect World Market products to fill it with!
Connect with Gilles on Twitter and Instagram.

I was thrilled to have the opportunity to possibly work with him but unfortunately my design wasn't chosen. Actually, my sweet friend Kelley's was chosen and it's so adorable that I had to share it with you! 

I love the use of these chalkboard crates!

Didn't it turn out beautiful!? I love the bright pops up color. Any girl would be lucky to have!

When I created a design board for this project to submit, I started with a feminine and girly color scheme as you can see below. I stayed within a budget of $500 to make this an affordable option for an outdoor space. 

I love incorporating minty tones like this sweet World Market rocker with dark pinks like the sheer curtains for a girly vibe. I also used a reverisble outdoor rug and chose comfortable seating to warm the place up (I'm thinking the moms and dads will appreciate that). 

One of the best ways to update an outdoor space is to use a beautiful outdoor rug. I love the use of outdoor cushions as well to creat a cozy spot to sit.

Although I wasn't chosen for the final project, I still love this design and would love to design a treehouse for my own kids someday. I hope its just as cute as Gille's sweet daughter's treehouse!
