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.

Making an Entrance

with 8 comments

 

My initial inspiration for this picture was Fancy Decor’s “Nannerl Set” – an entrance hall set that is both elegant and practical. I’m very much in favour of such sets as they are the first thing a visitor to your home will see, and as a result they are quite important to get right and strike a good atmosphere with.

There’s quite a lot of Spanish furniture and décor around right now, not least because The Liaison Collaborative has a Hacienda round!  I’ve matched up some of these pieces from various designers – I really love the splashes of joyful, bright colour which are a Spanish trademark.  If you ever visit Barcelona and see the work of architect Antoni Gaudí i Cornet you’ll see what I mean on a grand scale.

Here’s all the Home & Garden products I used in the picture today, in detail:-

Sponsors:- Newchurch, Fancy Decor, unKindness, KraftWork, Raindale
Others:- Vespertine, JIAN, CRATE, [CIRCA] Living, SOY, Merak, Dust Bunny

All items have Permissions of Copy & Modify unless otherwise stated!

Newchurch (from Builder’s Box – May 2018 edition)
:: N :: Ontario Lake House w/base – LI 51 (without base it’s just LI 22)

This house was designed to be situated on a shoreline, with the deck just above the water. While Designer Victor has included a terrain base, you will get best results by removing it and shaping the land around the house to suit.  The floor, while mesh, is fine for rezzing packages on – makes decorating so much easier!
