Attic Attraction

with 2 comments

The scene today shows part of the Autumn Attic Skybox from *~ by Nacht .  It’s complete with rafters, skylight windows and wooden flooring that make for a cosy place to live.  Attic or Loft conversions are one of the most popular home improvements in the UK , where the perceived benefits of an extra bedroom, office space, gym or storage space adds to the overall value of the property.

Actually Loft conversions were originally a US thing,  where non-residential spaces (most commonly warehouses, docks, former factories or water towers) were converted into habitable homes. These first became popular in the SoHo section of New York City during the 1960s. Artists created living spaces on the upper levels of obsolete industrial buildings, sometimes located in the heart of the city. In the pioneering period of lofts, most SoHo buildings were not zoned as residential and the lofts were being used illegally as living space. In 1971, New York City legalised the residential use of space in SoHo, and loft living became popular throughout the neighbourhood. Loft living spread to other previously industrial Manhattan neighbourhoods including TriBeCa, Chelsea and Greenwich Village.

Because… even witches have to eat!

My first Halloween scene and I’m really excited about this new set from Silence – available at Salem which has just opened.  It’s beautifully made and matches up with so much décor to do with this time of year, it’d be a shame not to purchase it.  That’s if you can get into Salem at the moment, I’m relying on what I get from my Sponsors, it’s a popular Event and that’s no lie.

Here’s a close-up of the dining table.  The glass bottles with candles, the caramel apples and the goblets are already in a set themselves so you just rez – nice ‘n easy – especially if you’ve got a dinner to decorate for at very short notice.

And the Spider Bowl. Not too scary, is it?

 

Also, I’m featuring some more Blueprint Event items.  ASW has a wonderful set of curtains, draped table and letters blowing about.  There’s a distant storm on its way and the nets are already being swept up by the wind.  {E}lusive’s very posh pumpkins are resting by the gold screen and NACH’s décor sign tells us who will be attending the meal.  Outside, Little Branch’s Scots Pine forest is bunching together in preparation!  The grey tabby is hiding under the table which is a very good place because she might get some of the pumpkin inspired dining scraps!
