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.

Too much Turkey?

with 5 comments

 

Have we eaten too much turkey?  Feeling over full?  Why not take a leaf out of these little chaps’ book and do some exercise.  How about a sleigh ride or a walk or even a fabulous snowy hot tub session, the choice is yours. Alright, some of those activities are less in the way of exercise than others… but you know what I mean!

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.

The Deer Family are having a Thanksgiving tea!  And I’m celebrating all the gorgeous Autumn décor and landscaping we’ve got around at the moment.  Season of mist and mellow fruitfulness is just about right.  Even in real life the berry bushes seem full of produce, maybe that’s so the animals and birds can build up stock for a cold winter.  OK, I’m not thinking about that at the moment, but I had my flu vaccination in preparation.   I’m  just intent on enjoying this beautiful and peaceful season before I need to break out the multitudinous clothing layers and hot water bottle.

The Pond Forest is by Roawenwood and it’s packed full of animations for a romantic encounter.  I think the deer have had quite enough of all that as they’ve got 3 kids already this year! Best go on a brisk walk/trot then 🙂

Grandma’s Kitchen

with 6 comments

 

It’s no secret, I loves me some vintage furniture! I’m featuring pieces from the new exclusively Home & Garden Event, Blueprint. That’s amongst other gorgeous products from clever Designers.

I started off with kitchen units by The Jewel Garden and went from there. They had a choice of 3 pastel fridge/cooker combos and I really liked the blue. Never mind about my Gran, this was very like my Mum’s kitchen – bless her! She loved the 1950s style and kept quite a few of her RL designer pieces which nowadays can command good money for such mid-century finery.

Bathroom Blitz

with 2 comments

If you’re fed up with the hot summer conditions, here’s a skybox which has winter on its mind!  It’s a Group Gift from FOURTH WALL and called the Winter’s Abode Skybox.  I’ve made a scene near one of the windows with the help of Percy the Puffin who much prefers a steamy shower to the snowy conditions outside.

Winter’s Abode is a small studio skybox apartment that mixes together a clean, modern style with the traditional warm woods of a cabin. It’s only L$99 to join the VIP Group, so basically you get a skybox for a daft amount and even less if you’re a group member already.

There is a main room with a half divider in wood, the ceiling here has a pleasant, cosy rafter area and a sloped wooden section down to four wall height windows at the front. When you don’t have the outdoor scene up, you get a lot of light through these. The main room leads off into another more private area reached by a single step and this has no windows and is lit by copious industrial style ceiling lights above.  Here’s your slide screen featuring some photos using the lounger and puffin to get a sense of scale.  Well that was Percy’s excuse to model anyway!
