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.

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.

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!
