Natural Habitat

It’s all about neutral tones today, soft greys and creams, toning wood, black iron. The colour comes from emerald green plants, tasty food and a glowing fire. I’m featuring the new lounge set from Cheeky Pea which is so cosy and has a FatPack texture changer in lighter tones suitable for spring into summer decorating. It’s well worth looking at. The sofa animations are nice as well, unisex and should do for most gender couples with a bit of adjustment. I adore the petal ceiling lamp and the succulent circles living wall art which make the “Vide” set that little bit different.

The scene is set in my favourite house of the year so far, KraftWork’s “West of the Rain” home. It’s very adaptable and all on one floor but you don’t feel hemmed in by it at all. This is achieved at least partially by the entrance hall which has a high ceiling with a roof skylight spilling light into the space. And then there’s a roomy porch for outdoor living areas. Gorgeous and only 96 Land Impact for all that detail.

Shades of Lilac

with 6 comments

 

My object today was to create a peaceful room based on the colour white, so most of the products here are actually white. However, after I’d fiddled around with various Windlight settings I came up with this beautiful lilac wash which is rather pleasing and calm and created the atmosphere I was after.

The scene is set on the ground floor of Galland Homes “Cape Hatteras” and the light on the floor is reflected from the mass of windows at the front.  I think this is one of my favourite virtual homes of all time because not only do you get airy upper balconies and a comfortable porch back and front on the ground floor, but the amount of windows overall is nigh on perfect for calm and light within the house. The flooring is equally pleasing with a good mix of tiling and wooden floorboards. Cape Hatteras back in RL is the name of a thin, broken  strand of islands off the coast of North Carolina which have a humid, subtropical climate and can be rather turbulent and subject to storm damage. No doubt Designer Rob Galland got his inspiration from the sort of colonial homes that would manage well in that weather.

 

*~*

I’m also featuring a posh new glass console set by Fancy Decor which includes pictures and you’ll find at Collabor88, a stunning fireplace and mirror set in three colour options by unKindness at April FaMESHed and a beautiful daybed set with matching chamomile accessories by Granola. and that’s also at FaMESHed.

*~*

There’s an interesting tale about the origin of lilacs and it’s from Greek mythology.  It revolves around the God Pan, the lord of forests and fields, and at one time he was madly in love with a nymph named Syringa. Pan could be rather an overwhelming God and one day he chased after Syringa through the forest quite frightening her.  To disguise herself, she turned into a lilac shrub. To Pan’s surprise, he could not find Syringa on that occasion, but he did find the shrub. Because a lilac shrub consists of hollow reeds, he cut the reeds and created the first pan pipe. The scientific name for lilac is Syringa vulgaris, and the name is derived from the Greek word “syrinks” which means pipe.

Lilac meanings vary throughout different cultures and time periods.

  • The Celts regarded the lilac as “magical” due to its incredibly intoxicating fragrance.
  • During the Victorian Age, the giving of a lilac was meant to be a reminder of an old love. In fact, widows were often seen wearing lilacs during this period.
  • In Russia, holding a sprig of lilac over the newborn would bring wisdom.
  • In the United States, the lilac is the official state flower of New Hampshire and represents the ‘hardy’ nature of its people.

Fondue for you!

with 4 comments

*click on the picture for a larger version

During the 18th century the origin of fondue began in Switzerland as a way to use aged cheeses and breads to feed families who had limited access to fresh foods during the winter time. Producers of cheese and bread saw their busy season was during the warm months and that the food had to be saved by villagers to be used through the cold winter months. As the cheese would age and the breads became stale it became more difficult to eat. The local villagers found that if they heated the cheese with wines, garlic, and herbs they could dip their stale bread which would soften when dipped into the flavourful cheese mixture. This way of cooking together over one pot and eating by a warm cosy fire became a Swiss winter tradition known as fondue. The word fondue comes from the French word, ‘fondre’, which means ‘to melt’ and has since then been used to reference many other types of fondue for meats, chicken, seafood, and even chocolate.

“I think we might be a tad too early, Prancer!”

Well of course they are!  They’ve got the SL® Winter blogging fever and it’s only November!  There’s some fabulous seasonal products about at various Events and they make such fun scenes.  I couldn’t have been more pleased to see JIAN’s latest animals, the Reindeer.  Not only do you get Companion, Wanderer and Static versions, but also they have their own cute stables.   That fabulous sleigh is by Granola. and it was well worth nagging Designer Kimbra over Thanksgiving so I could get the set.  It is really enchanting and on the front of the sleigh, which you can’t see this scene, are glowing stringlights and sleigh bells.  As always, Little Branch have come up with some stunning seasonal trees which with a click can be changed to snowy boughs and leaves, their sim is well worth a visit to add to your winter landscaping.

I fiddled around on the Black Dragon viewer which I’m getting more into now, making up my own Windlights for various effects.  You certainly can build depth into your photography with all the bells & whistles of that viewer.  Perseverance pays off 🙂

Attic Attraction

with 2 comments

The scene today shows part of the Autumn Attic Skybox from *~ by Nacht .  It’s complete with rafters, skylight windows and wooden flooring that make for a cosy place to live.  Attic or Loft conversions are one of the most popular home improvements in the UK , where the perceived benefits of an extra bedroom, office space, gym or storage space adds to the overall value of the property.

Actually Loft conversions were originally a US thing,  where non-residential spaces (most commonly warehouses, docks, former factories or water towers) were converted into habitable homes. These first became popular in the SoHo section of New York City during the 1960s. Artists created living spaces on the upper levels of obsolete industrial buildings, sometimes located in the heart of the city. In the pioneering period of lofts, most SoHo buildings were not zoned as residential and the lofts were being used illegally as living space. In 1971, New York City legalised the residential use of space in SoHo, and loft living became popular throughout the neighbourhood. Loft living spread to other previously industrial Manhattan neighbourhoods including TriBeCa, Chelsea and Greenwich Village.

Here’s a Slideshow of the empty Autumn Attic Skybox so you can get an idea of the overall look:-

Gentleman’s Autumn Retreat

with 8 comments

The cosiness of the autumn season can’t be denied, especially if you make a fireside nook. Autumnal colours are particularly pleasing, creating a warm palette for the eyes and easing the soul into a temporary but welcome security before the winter season freezes everything over!  It’s no wonder that Keats coined it, “Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness”.
