Fireside Memories

with 2 comments

 

Winter has set in where we live, and I find there’s nothing better for cheering up a grey, freezing cold day than to lounge in front of a blazing fire.  It also has the best heat output anywhere, including oil fired radiators and ambient heaters!  You can sit and watch a fire for its living elements and never be bored, in fact it will help clear out upsetting emotional states and give you comfort.

There’s a lot of Scandi style furniture and décor around at the moment and it’s a style that’s perfect for winter decorating.  It can be successfully combined with other styles, as I’ve done in the scene above.  It’s a beautiful, minimalist style that was among the first design styles to promote simplistic ways of living when it emerged during the 1930s within the five Nordic countries of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.  It became known as “Scandinavian design” which originated from a design show that toured the USA and Canada between 1954 and 1957.  The style emphasizes clean lines and simple designs that are inspired by nature and the Nordic climate. This results in spaces that are suffused with light, airiness, serenity and a feeling of oneness with nature.  Scandi style promotes beautiful designs and quality, with sustainable products that are affordable and easily accessible to people in all strata’s of society, and that makes it an egalitarian choice for today.

“I think we might be a tad too early, Prancer!”

Well of course they are!  They’ve got the SL® Winter blogging fever and it’s only November!  There’s some fabulous seasonal products about at various Events and they make such fun scenes.  I couldn’t have been more pleased to see JIAN’s latest animals, the Reindeer.  Not only do you get Companion, Wanderer and Static versions, but also they have their own cute stables.   That fabulous sleigh is by Granola. and it was well worth nagging Designer Kimbra over Thanksgiving so I could get the set.  It is really enchanting and on the front of the sleigh, which you can’t see this scene, are glowing stringlights and sleigh bells.  As always, Little Branch have come up with some stunning seasonal trees which with a click can be changed to snowy boughs and leaves, their sim is well worth a visit to add to your winter landscaping.

I fiddled around on the Black Dragon viewer which I’m getting more into now, making up my own Windlights for various effects.  You certainly can build depth into your photography with all the bells & whistles of that viewer.  Perseverance pays off 🙂

Fireside Gold

with 8 comments

I do think that gold suits a fireplace so well, or just something golden around it like a grate or an ornament or a picture frame.  Combined with the glowing flames the result is so warm.  Even though we’re in a virtual world, the feelings of warmth and contentment can still be successfully created if we use a bit of imagination.
