The Spa in the Woods

with 5 comments

A bit of a fantasy here, because unless you could connect to an underground water system you wouldn’t be able to use that bathtub… however, that’s what we’ve got our virtual world for, to indulge in such impossible things!

The BONDI set needs a bit more explaining… it’s called “Mi Mate” and it’s all about the consumption of Mate.  Now Mate is a caffeine rich infused drink from South America, made of dried leaves and drunk with a shared straw from a shared hollow gourd shaped container. Modern, commercially available straws are typically made of nickel silver (called alpaca), stainless steel, or hollow stemmed cane – and that’s what you can see on the table by the lantern.  Sounds a pretty good pastime to me.

Home & Garden Expo 2017 – My Little Department Store

with 6 comments

*~*~*

What a beautiful store this is, it’s “Verdalina’s Department Store” and is a new release by Spargel & Shine Homes, currently at the RFL Home & Garden 2017 Expo . It’s a classically styled building with three floors, four side rooms, three balconies and a nifty elevator to get you there. It would be great for a shop, business, boutique hotel or even a home! Land Impact is 257 when rezzed and the Footprint is 16 by 24 metres. A chrome light is included so you can put as many copies around as you like. The Elevator is a joy and such fun to use. It’s animated, and does not need reprogramming for every new location. Simply step through the doors and click on the control panel. You’ll automatically go into a pose and a menu will appear asking you which floor you want. Once there, you just click on “stand” at the bottom of your screen and walk out through the doors.

 

Now I bet you could make an excellent home of this. The rooms would be cosy and not too big and you wouldn’t have stairs to worry about. So, I thought I’d decorate some of the rooms with furniture from the Expo… see what you think!

*~*~*

Here we are on the ground floor which is open plan and contains a central lift. Both sides have large picture windows and side arch windows. This is just a section, really, because there is more space in the opposite direction. I was using the Moroccan set from Bazar. And yes, herons live in Morocco too, I checked!

*~*~*

Here’s a close up with the fire off. Still looks beautiful with the cool, white stones. You can use the suite with gold or silver hints via texture change. I love the tassels on the sofa and carpet.

*~*~*

On every floor, you’re going to have a lift area (at least in the main section). There are sliding doors to the smaller side rooms that go off the main sections. So why not make a feature of this area? The Heron has already pecked the lift doors so that they are opening, revealing the control panel on the wall.

*~*~*

One floor up and we’re in the main section here, with three French windows that open onto a balcony. There’s a lovely feeling of light that flows into the room and it feels airy if you leave a couple of doors open. His and Hers day beds, perhaps!

*~*~*

Finally we’re on the top floor and you can see one of those sliding doors to the side room. The windows have that beautiful wrought iron panel work that casts fancy shadows into the room. Silly me left cookies on the table so you can’t really blame the dalmatian! This makes a nice drawing room or lounge but could equally be a main bedroom.

I hope that’s given you some decorating ideas!

*~*~*
Here’s the Home & Garden items I used in detail, including direct SLurls to the Expo stalls. Items not in the Expo, I’ve noted.
