A Writer’s Summer

with 17 comments

 

I’m not really being lazy, I did set up the typewriter *laughs*, but that was before making the summery drinks 🙂 The picture shows the porch area of Raindale‘s “Kenward Summer House”, currently at Cosmopolitan Event. It’s a small building, footprint is 14 by 16, but you can fit a lot in if you extend the porch to a garden room. Versions are available with and without lights, with a difference of 6 Land Impact so there isn’t that much in it. There’s also a “Welcome Post” in the set with sign and lantern and you can change the lettering of the board if you want – there’s a blank texture – so you could have ‘Please Sod Off!’ if you wanted peace and quiet. Errr… LIZ!

The chairs and table set are eTNIA‘s contribution to the Home Show 2017. I just love them – they are so detailed and would look great in real life in my lounge! That rug underneath is also eTNIA (at Cosmopolitan) and it has a texture change for 8 Persian rugs, you know the sort – well loved and faded a bit in the sun and most likely too expensive to drop your tea on. It’s quite a 3D rug, so be careful when you place items on top of it. Finally, the dogs and hummingbirds bring the whole thing to life.

*~*~*

The next picture shows the garden and more of the lovely Kenward Summer House. I think the landscaping turned out New Zealandish again but I can’t resist the tree ferns and they go well with Raindale’s texture change Tree. Now this tree is rather dramatic, don’t you think? It’s at the Home Show 2017 and has scripted and non scripted versions. You can have five different leaf textures and same for the bark, then there’s glow options and 5 presets plus an alpha mod switch. It’s really a garden statement piece because I don’t think you could have more than one and get away with them all leaning over in the same direction with the same branch arrangement, so here it is undermining the foundations of the Summer House in a very spectacular way.

*~*~*

Now here I am really chillaxing on Fancy Decor‘s “Modular Outdoor Living Kit”, which is currently at Summerfest 2017. I just adore this set because you really can make up the furniture into whatever space you have to spare. This is quite a small arrangement here, and there are single chairs with two arms as well so you could go all suite-ish if you like. Fancy Decor have this set out in two wood colours, I chose the lighter one with blue pillows, the darker kit will have cream and chocolate pillows, and the furniture is more like cream and mid toned wood. And those gorgeous summer drinks? You can gacha those at the Okinawa Summer Festival and they are by Poche. As far as I’m concerned, Poche are the Bees Knees when it comes to food and drink décor… maybe even the whole of the honey bee.

    • Thank you, Isa *hhuugggsss* I felt kinda deflated when I took this down from the building platform and will have to create the writer’s area elsewhere on our land – eTNIA made the set way too good 🙂

  5. Always love to see how you put together your spaces as I am lucky that I can shove something xtra in a scene and not make it look clumpy but you pull together some amazing stuff it really makes me envious at the talent you have ~ great pics as well and don’t worry with that I would want the solitude and peace as well..the typewriter brings back memories yup am an old salty dog LOL…..hugzz ~ great job Moz

    • Awwws, thanks so much, Starr! I think a scene like that does bring back memories of a time that wasn’t so honed in on technology but was lived at a much slower pace, and so easier to handle in many ways. There’s nothing like the light and shadows in a porch on a sunny day, either. I have visited New Zealand a number of times in the past, the light there is amazing, bright and warm at the same time, so I was kinda recreating the feelings of that place as well. Glad you enjoyed 🙂
