A Yearning for Home

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.
