Serene Corner

leave a comment »

 

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.

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.

Feeling Peckish

with 5 comments

When you’ve gone to bed and the birds think the table is set up so nicely, they are going to use it!

This new dining set from KraftWork is so beautiful, I couldn’t wait to try it out.  My windlight is set at a warm, cosy tone for intimate evening dining, so do check out the vendor photo below so you can see what the set looks like in a whiter light.

The scene is set in the Laverton Skybox, from the latest Raindale gacha which is at Lootbox.  This is the opposite end to the fireplace.  I’ll show more of this in the next post.

I went along to Ibi’s (8f8) to check out his new gacha (which I’ll use in the next post) and found these cute little vintage birds as well. There’s mister and miss versions so I thought they went together quite well in dining pairs.  I got three Mr Honeys so I don’t know what that’s telling me!

Winter Glamping

with 6 comments

The Husky family have taken to glamping this winter! They adore their new vehicle, the Kraftstream. They can even sling their sleighs on it, lazy canines. Look at Dad pegged out, he must have imbibed way too much Christmas cheer… or Hans, have you made that bench too comfy?  Maybe Junior will wake him up with a snowball 🙂

The Kraftstream has a couple of versions included in the pack, one which is furnished and one which is just the vehicle itself. There’s a great decorating HUD included. Options include awning on and off, and versions of interior finishing, string lights, fabric patterns, and dinette décor. There are even Christmas fabric options included, it’s enough to satisfy most ardent decorating fiddlers.

Hygge Hangout

with 4 comments

We’ve got the pale yellow skies of winter with a sprinkling of snow today! But you can be extra cosy in this beautiful and practical new cabin by KraftWork. It’s from the Hygge Set which is currently at Uber.

There’s a couple of ways of approaching the word, Hygge. It’s a Danish word which attempts to encapsulate the feeling of cosiness as being something charming or special. You can’t buy a Hygge living room in real life because the Danish see it as an emotional state rather than anything material. It also describes our ability to recognise and enjoy the current moment, and to indulge into the art of creating intimacy in a room. In other words, it’s creating a feeling of cosiness and knowing when you’ve got there!

I really enjoyed decorating this cabin by Kraftwork, and have used it in several posts now. What I like about it is the style and the practicality. I think we can go over the top with Scandi Design until it loses the sense of being useful. But this cabin has a flow-through ethic which means the two rooms can be used for either bedroom or living room, whatever you desire. The chimneys are well observed with a great smoke effect and there’s a couple of blazing fires – indoors and out. The outdoorsy fire extends the living space, you could set up a breakfast table and chairs here and be relatively comfortable, given the time of year. The flooring is a warm wood and the walls also are a warm coloured render. All these features add to the Hygge feeling of warmth and cosiness.

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.
