It’s all about neutral tones today, soft greys and creams, toning wood, black iron. The colour comes from emerald green plants, tasty food and a glowing fire. I’m featuring the new lounge set from Cheeky Pea which is so cosy and has a FatPack texture changer in lighter tones suitable for spring into summer decorating. It’s well worth looking at. The sofa animations are nice as well, unisex and should do for most gender couples with a bit of adjustment. I adore the petal ceiling lamp and the succulent circles living wall art which make the “Vide” set that little bit different.

The scene is set in my favourite house of the year so far, KraftWork’s “West of the Rain” home. It’s very adaptable and all on one floor but you don’t feel hemmed in by it at all. This is achieved at least partially by the entrance hall which has a high ceiling with a roof skylight spilling light into the space. And then there’s a roomy porch for outdoor living areas. Gorgeous and only 96 Land Impact for all that detail.

Second Life Home & Garden Expo 2019 #3

with 6 comments

Today, I’ve got three more creative designers for you from the Expo!

1. First up is LozMac Designs and you’ll find them on Hope 3.  Lulu-Belle (Lilith Sablatnig) runs LozMac and she’s a Real World Artist, too.  Check out her Second Life® creations blog and also on Marketplace.

Lulu’s first Donation item is the Clear Background Wall/Floor Decal textured with “Heart Mandala 1 – Mint & Pink”. This item is a convex prim. The front face and reverse have been textured with Lulu’s art, the rest have been set to clear.  This artwork is equally happy decorating walls as well as floors.

The second Donation item is the Wall Hanging textured with the same mandala design. Complex flowing vines and a plethora of hearts make up this mandala. Other colour versions are available with more to follow. My photograph was taken on advanced lighting so you can see the shininess of the satin texture, depending on what Windlight you choose.  Both pieces are Copy & Modify and have a Land Impact of 1. Naturally, my ragdoll cat had to get in there amongst the posh artworks but you can roughly gauge the size of the products from the size of the kitty!

 

2. Next up we’ve got Painted Pixels by Designer. Jenny Ashland. They are also on Marketplace. Painted Pixels specialises in small homes that will fit on the smallest of plots. You’ll find them on Hope 1.

Two homes are the Donation items.  Little Living – LI 21 and Boxer – LI 27

Little Living is an open plan, light and airy home on one floor. Glass doors swing open to reveal a ground floor living space with a fabulous full window section at the far end.  A small porch area decorates the front entrance of Little Living and lends itself to pot plants and patio furniture.  Although small, the house feels large inside and with a good garden by the window wall you could extend the feeling of spaciousness. The footprint is 13.8 meters by 6.9 meters and 0.218 meters high.

Boxer is composed of a living area on the ground floor and a walled garden roof.  Boxer’s size is 2.02 meters by 0.89 meters and 0.16 meters high, there are sliding glass doors to the outside which includes a little courtyard, and steps to a grass covered roof garden at the side of the house.

Boxer has the Easy Texture Changer Pro for windows, walls, trim and doors plus security settings. The windows you can set open or closed for the horizontal windows, and the doors can also be set open or closed. They look as if you’ve got roller blinds on the inside of the windows/doors when closed. There’s texture change for the Outside walls 1 and 2 – green, white, tan and blue. The inside walls of the ground floor room have options of 4 neutral shades. The trim outside has options of green, white, tan and blue. With all these choices you’ll be able to change the house for that individual look.

3.   Last, but not least, our third Designer is GARDEN CENTRE by GC Underwood.  You’ll find GARDEN CENTRE on Hope 4.

There are two 100% Donation items – Love Island and Boxhill

“Love Island” is a beautiful tropical hideaway complete with rocks, palm trees, animated waves and island style décor.  There are over 30 couples poses included in the décor.  Footprint is around 40 meters by 10 meters and the Land Impact is 75.

 

“Boxhill” is a contemporary concrete industrial style open plan dwelling with glass walls and garage style doors. Indoors, the windows are tinted for privacy. Just click on the outside glass doors to allow them to raise up into the ceiling and reveal the furnishings.  This is a complete product – building and landscaping – that you can simply rez and enjoy.

Relax around the lap pool with elegant landscaping and a flowing fountain that has tranquil noise.  Boxhill is partially furnished with items from Blizzard creations. The bed, sofa, armchairs and garden bench all have couples or single poses. Boxhill can also be used as a sky dwelling by adding extra railings around the edge.

House – 31 prims
Landscaping – 163 prims
Furniture and décor – 113 prims
Total – 307 prims
Footprint – approximately 30 metres by 33 metres

Serene Corner

with 2 comments

 

More from The Boardwalk designers today, and I’ve made a cosy corner that is also quite restful. It’s really interesting to see what sort of effect you can get from décor without the warmth of a fireplace. There are tonal colours from both the cold and warm palette but they all blend in well as they are not really strong. Background colours of soft grey and warm wood lend themselves to bronze accessories.

*~*~*

A Yearning for Home

leave a comment »

 

The Lauren Valley original MESH build is the newest house by Designer Rob Galland of Galland Homes, and it’s a beauty. It features a Colonial design and has plenty of room for family living. Both floors have large and open areas and the first floor is accentuated by the feature wood sliding doors. The downstairs living room could be used as two different spaces- a living room and a den for example. This room leads to what could be a kitchen, dining area, and a sun room for an office or eating space. There is a space under the stairs for a powder room or closet – your choice. The stairs lead to a beautiful landing which takes you either into the huge master suite or the second bedroom. Finally, through the French doors in the kitchen area, you will find an expansive patio for outdoor living enjoyment. So… plenty of decorating possibilities. There’s also a snow roof package and if you’re on a winter sim, you won’t miss out there. Find the Lauren Valley at this month’s Edition of FaMESHed.

Colonial architecture is based on a yearning for the colonists’ home country. The consequent buildings and settlements combine the best aspects of the mother country and the new land, creating hybrid designs. Examples of these styles in the USA include Dutch Colonial and Dutch Revival, French Colonial, from American Colonial there’s Federal, First Period and Georgian architecture, and Spanish Colonial particularly in the Caribbean and South America. Portuguese Colonial (in South America) and British Colonial architecture (in North America and Canada) is also prevalent.
