Blue is the colour

with 7 comments

“I have a blue house with a blue window
Blue is the colour of all that I wear
Blue are the streets and all the trees are too
I have a girlfriend and she is so blue
Blue are the people here that walk around
Blue like my Corvette, it’s in and outside
Blue are the words I say and what I think
Blue are the feelings that live inside me” ~ Blue (Da Ba Dee) Eiffel 65

Although the lyrics maybe a wee bit sombre, the actual song is upbeat and enjoyable.  And I think that’s one of the diverse things about the colour blue. On the one hand it’s a great colour for interior design because it’s quite restful, intuitive and nourishing – it’s the colour of the sea and the sky after all – and on the other hand the emotion of ‘having the blues’ is also associated with the colour. What a dichotomy!

My pal Exis did a blue interior this week and so I thought I’d have a go, too. Not entirely blue, I admit, but it’s amazing what you can do with toning and contrast colours. It reminds me of peacock feathers. The JIAN Betta tank must get a special mention because it has such a low Land Impact and you can rez as many animated fish as will fit in the tank – a really good addition to your lounge which will add some life and colour.

Chips with everything

with 6 comments

 

Some more from the latest Builder’s Box today. I’m featuring a beautiful, navy walled skybox by ..::THOR::.. that’s not too large, it would be a perfect hideaway for partners. There’s curtained picture windows that look out onto a balcony and this is surrounded by a city night backdrop section. The windows will slide open allowing access to the balcony. Slotted into one side of the room there’s a raised section – you could put a bed here and a romantic dining area by the windows. The opposite side to the window has a recessed décor only doorway. The lighting inside is really nice; baked textures for light coming in from the windows spill over the floor and the rest of the room is calm and soothing.

Then there’s furniture and décor by 220ML, MADRAS, BONDI and [Krescendo] from the same Builder’s Box Edition. Thoroughly recommended and don’t forget to check out their blog for the catalogue, see below.

And as to the title – well my mum used to despair because given the choice me and my brother would always have chips with every meal!

Let it Snow!

with 7 comments

“Oh, the weather outside is frightful
But the fire is so delightful
And since we’ve no place to go
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow” sung by Dean Martin

Yes I know Frankie sings this as well but I adore the dulcet tones of Mr Martin – compare and contrast as they say in exams!

This cute little scene takes place in the “Mountain Ski Lodge” skybox by Fourth Wall, which is just perfect for Christmas decorating! It’s not just this main room that constitutes the skybox but there’s also a side room which is meant to be the bedroom as it has an attached dressing room, all in warm wood. There’s a version with snow surround, and that’s what I’ve been using here. If you can’t do without it after the season has passed, simply choose the version without surround.
