Making an Entrance

with 4 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!

It Ain’t Half Hot, Mum!

with 13 comments

 

Yes, it certainly is!  The pups have collapsed on a very posh sofa by unKindness, and mum thinks they are in need of some of that green tea.  It’s very reviving in this hot weather.

The scene takes place on the upper floor of a spectacular house by also Known as – which is just perfect for summer outdoor/indoor living.  One of the walls on the upper floor has these amazing slotted windows which show the landscape outside and let a whole lotta light in.

The beautiful prints by Granola. are from a recent FaMESHed set which should be back at the mainstore.  So versatile, they’d go in a lot of places.  And I just couldn’t resist the vintage scooter light from Serenity Style – it matched the colour scheme so well.  Finally, I reduced a poor orange tree down to pot size – sorry, Little Branch! – and put it in a matching table.  It’s sometimes amusing what you can do with Home & Garden furnishings 🙂

*~*~*

It’s been a while since I posted because the unprecedented heatwave in the UK went on and on, and my computer was subject to overheating so I had to make real life work a priority.  Fortunately, we are back to our usual temperatures this week.  Now to get air conditioning for home and office next year will be a ‘must’ I think, especially if heatwaves become the norm.

An Island Resort

with 8 comments

 

A couple has arrived at a secluded Island Resort, maybe on their honeymoon, and while they’re in the bathroom, we can have a look at their bedroom. It’s quite early in the morning and because it’s so hot, they’ve left the door out onto the balcony wide open. Crisp cotton sheets, perfect customer service and luxurious décor are just two of the reasons why this resort got a five star rating!

If only! Still, at least in SL® we can dream. The room is an upper floor bedroom that leads out onto a gorgeous balcony, and it’s not the only one in the latest prefab by Galland Homes, this is the Cape Hatteras. I’ll do another post very soon to show you the rooms and the outside but take it from me, you could do worse for your summer vacation home.

Most of the decor is from unKindness. It’s the Island Resort gacha and you can try your luck on this at the June edition of Collabor88. Lots of nice animations in this bed, including a great couples sleep Menu, for the ultimate in laziness.

I also loved these new lanterns from Granola., you’ll find them over at UBER, which has recently started its new round but you can get in now without too much trouble. They come in various colours including this light blue which matched the bedspread perfectly.

Rock a Bye Baby

leave a comment »

“Rock-a-bye, baby, thy cradle is green;
Father’s a nobleman, mother’s a queen;
And Aggy’s a lady, and wears a gold ring;
And Johnny’s a drummer, and drums for the king.” ~ The first printed version from Mother Goose’s Melody (London, c. 1765)

I liked this version of the traditional nursery rhyme and it fitted the products in the picture so well!  The room is in one of KraftWork’s excellent houses which you can obtain through the April Deco(c)rate subscription box.  Of course I had to take some more photos 🙂  In the shot below we are looking down on the roof top which you can access via the ladder.  That skylight window is really great and adds extra light to the room below. Doors will open out onto the balcony. How about decorating this with a rooftop garden 🙂

*~*~*

Here’s a side view of the balcony and stairs up to the roof.  You can also see the floor below which will take up the extra ceiling room of the balcony making it a larger living space.

*~*~*

Here we are almost at the top floor and you can see the stairs from the floor below, plus the handy safety rail to save on accidents!

*~*~*

Let that sunlight in!  Joking apart, when you use the rain particle effect, it really does look like a dull day in Chelsea, suitable for staying in and stuffing yourself up the tube.  This is a Brit way of saying OMG you’re acting like a couch potato.

Sweet Summer Evening

with 5 comments

“All things rejoiced beneath the sun; the weeds,
The river, and the cornfields, and the reeds;
The willow leaves that glanced in the light breeze,
And the firm foliage of the larger trees.” ~ from Summer & Winter by Percy Bysshe Shelley

At home this week we had a taste of what would normally be late summer heat humidity.  After some mighty thunderstorms it’s now back to lower temperatures interspersed with rain.  It made me recall my favourite time of day in summer and I think it’s those balmy summer evenings where it’s still warm enough to stretch out on a deck chair and enjoy a good novel! The stars are not out at that time but it is rather magical and the songbirds take advantage of this quieter period to mark their territories.  At least that’s what the ornithologists would have you believe but I think they sing also out of sheer joy.  It’s not for nothing that prayers in various spiritualities are said that this time.  Eventide is an old fashioned word that describes well the romantic, peaceful feeling you get when the heat of the day has faded into an acceptable temperature and you can rest up for a while, contemplating life, the universe and everything

Dine out in Comfort

with 9 comments

 

Two of my favourite things to do – relax and eat – what could be better. The cats think so, too, indeed one of them is considering that fried chicken dish full of tasty morsels, especially while the cook’s missing.

This gorgeous house is by KraftWork and you can pick up a copy at 6º Republic which runs until May 20th. It was a stand out product for me at the Event and it’s called the “Puget Sound Retreat”. Perfect for summertime scenes, you’ve got a nice large patio in partial shade and an airy spacious living space which contains shelving, sink and counter top area, huge glass windows, glass door and stairs to the roof which will naturally increase the floor space no end. Also included is a nice animated fire prim so you can either use that in the internal fireplace to make it cosy at night or the outside one for barbecues and evening cuddles. I filled that with flowers in the photograph. And… you also get a handy wall panel which I used on the building here. It could also be utilised inside to block some of the glass if you didn’t want the building to be so open. I did look up the name Puget Sound that the KraftWork building is named after and it turns out to be an area of the North Western US state of Washington. It’s an inlet of the Pacific Ocean and looks like the sort of place that would be great for sailing. That’s info for my Eurozone and Eastern readers!

 

 

 

Featured is a new food gacha by unKindness and that’s at 6º Republic as well. Yummy is all I can say and it’s really good because you get both preparation and finished product. For instance, with that tasty fried chicken the cat is after in the skillet, you have a corresponding chicken prep product. It makes for excellent roleplay and that is part of the fun of SL®. Appreciate the Country Fixin’s gacha.

 

 

Chilling out is the other kitty on [ zerkalo ]‘s new bed, from a gacha which is positively brimming with luxury, this is the Relaxed Corner gacha and it’s currently at the new round of Kustom9. Now the Rare for this is a rather nice fireplace but there are also two beds, one of which is Adult and those are Commons. So… a chance of winning an Adult bed as a Common, can’t be bad. You may have to wait a while to get into Kustom9, I tried today and it was no go even in the quiet Eurozone time. Good job Zerks is a sponsor of mine! The cushions, quilt, and bed all have really nice animations and the Knotted Rope lights are most unusual. A nice lot of décor items.

 

 

22769 made up a lot of the other décor from the Backyard Patio gacha which you’ll find at May Gacha Garden Event. Very nice set and it includes a smashing seahorse on plinth piece of décor which I really appreciated because I collect animal inspired décor pieces, the house is full of them. 22769 is all user created Mesh and the furniture animations are original as well. Generally, they are a prolific and creative design house which has stood the test of time. I recommend visiting their mainstore.

 

 

The garden is made exclusively from Little Branch products and I must say, designer Cari produces exquisite trees and shrubs that are suitable for all season landscaping. They are realistic and versatile and you usually get bonus plant items in each tree pack – I’ve detailed those below. I love the woven trunk of the Flowering Dogwood, it’s just beautiful and showed up well in my photograph. Cari has worked hard on reducing the Land Impact of the Little Branch trees over time and now you can use quite a lot of them for a reasonable outlay – make orchards, forests, even pack your garden with trees if you want to without breaking the prim bank. The mainstore is a delight to visit and would make a good first date (because it’s interesting, beautiful and nothing contentious) or just because you love the natural world.

The Edge of the Woods

with 10 comments

 

“I’m hiding in the dappled shadows at the edge of the woods, watching my childhood saviour. He’s busy working as usual and he never notices the natural world on his doorstep, stuck in the world of ink and paper. It’s just black and white, not at all like life, which can be so full of colour it makes you giddy.

I remember the comforting caresses and loving words when I was young, the green sweet grass of the enclosure, the ready nourishment laid out just for me. And it was more than enough, to grow up in the sun. But there came a time when I yearned for the company of another like me and the feeling became so overwhelming that one night I found a loose fence, kicked it hard and stepped out into the other world.

And I did find that company, eventually. And with that came a whole new family. So sometimes, when we’re out this way, I look up my human relative. I’m sure if he actually saw me I’d be back in that field as quickly as you can neigh. I’d have family but it would be his children racing around with me and although they are joyful things, they can never see into my heart. It is as green as the forest around me, a shining emerald, and it can’t be compelled by any man’s fancy.”

*~*~*

Here’s a couple of close-ups of all that lovely furniture and décor!  First the drawing table and seat from one of my fav designers – Merak.  She makes such carefully observed and precise, realistic Mesh.

And this is an oh so comfortable room that I think I’m going to use as our summer lounge.  That sofa you could just collapse into and fall asleep when you’re supposed to be working!
