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.

Countdown to Christmas

Things that make you go OhEmGee, look at the state of your office! Thus it is with pre-holiday organisation.  Even the pup is amused or perhaps he’s considering the tray of figs.  I know the kitten is considering the cardinals.

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 🙂

Pretty in Pink

with 5 comments

 

A gorgeous rose pink bedroom using mostly brand new products. It features a portable closet/wardrobe set by Silence which you can rez in Edit mode and hardly have to fiddle with. Once it’s rezzed you can move the pieces around though, and enlarge if you wish. What I love about this designer is the way every angle is covered, for instance the side of the rug… the edge I mean, looks like a real life rug would and you can see the cutwork pattern as your eye moves inward. The curtains fold and hang as if in real life, too, where nothing is absolutely symmetrical but works within the constraints of physics. And then the clothes hanging up – some neat and some not so neat!

The new 4-poster bed by Cheeky Pea, which is also user created mesh, has versions of white and rose pink bedclothes in PG and Adult versions, and is gently textured so that there’s some variation in self pattern. When you leap into the bed the sheets alter and fold down so you can lie properly without disappearing into the bedclothes. The bedframe is plain in my picture but you can click on it and reveal drapes and swathes of flowers (see vendor picture below).

That beautiful Tiffany etched glass style mirror, rolled letter vase, bottle and bowl decor is an ex-PocketGacha set (August) by MADRAS that you can gacha for AND buy as a whole set with Permissions of Copy & Modify. It’s Shabby Chic in style and comes as individual pieces and also a couple of linked sets for instant decor. Very useful!

Raindale’s classic rocking chair will rock gently upon touch and has three versions – with cushion & blanket, with cushion and no deco. It’s just perfect for autumnal decorating and even has original animations you won’t find anywhere else. Look at the stud detail on the chair seat and the swirl end arms.

Lastly, the lovely windchime is a Group Gift from TLC Home Collection. It will turn around to and fro naturally on touch and you can set the speed. So it would act as if you had the window open.

The wallpaper and flooring textures are mine. You can get variations of the bird wallpaper in real life from B&Q *laughs*, that’s if you live in the UK of course. We’re definately having a vintage wave in home decorating here, about time too.

Solace in Spain

with 9 comments

 

The scene today is photographed in part of the colonnade of  La Casa Blanca Spanish style home.  It’s by also Known as and is currently at the Hacienda round of The Liaison Collaborative.  If you hurry, there’s still a couple of days left.  There’s also another major piece from that round by my new sponsor, Silence, and that’s the Hacienda Swing which has a massive and satisfying texture changer!

The Hacienda Swing has twelve beautiful patterns you’ll absolutely love, and a selection of toning plains in Olive brown, Dark green, Red, White, Orange and Blue green. I used the SW4 pattern with the Blue green plain.  This was enough even to please me 🙂  Plus..  it’s very easy to alter the length of the poles and chains for whatever height porch you have, which makes this a versatile piece of furniture.

The fabulous La Casa Blanca consists of two floors and a flat roof area with tiled wall surround which could be decorated. There are two sets of outside steps from ground to upper floor and from upper floor to roof. There’s a white colonnade with ceiling beams at the front of house and a white balcony on upper floor.

The ground floor rooms number four altogether, and they are a mirror set accessible by big doors off the colonnade, their ceilings have wooden beams décor. The upper floor has a single bedroom with front and side window which you enter from the outside stairs and this room leads into a large double open plan bedroom with windows front and back. The balcony will take you up to the roof via the second set of outside stairs. The inner rooms are tiled with black and white flooring, and the roof and colonnade have caramel tiling. The house sits on a tiled block with three steps all round and plenty of extra height on the base to enable you to sink it into the ground, be it grass, concrete or sand.  I’ve taken copious photos and made a slideshow…
