Chips with everything

with 6 comments

 

Some more from the latest Builder’s Box today. I’m featuring a beautiful, navy walled skybox by ..::THOR::.. that’s not too large, it would be a perfect hideaway for partners. There’s curtained picture windows that look out onto a balcony and this is surrounded by a city night backdrop section. The windows will slide open allowing access to the balcony. Slotted into one side of the room there’s a raised section – you could put a bed here and a romantic dining area by the windows. The opposite side to the window has a recessed décor only doorway. The lighting inside is really nice; baked textures for light coming in from the windows spill over the floor and the rest of the room is calm and soothing.

Then there’s furniture and décor by 220ML, MADRAS, BONDI and [Krescendo] from the same Builder’s Box Edition. Thoroughly recommended and don’t forget to check out their blog for the catalogue, see below.

And as to the title – well my mum used to despair because given the choice me and my brother would always have chips with every meal!

Galveston

with 6 comments

 

Galveston isn’t just the classic Glen Campbell song or an island city on the Gulf Coast of Texas, but it’s also this fabulous prefab by Galland Homes.

There are two large rooms which are divided by unusual large sliding stable doors, and there’s also smart dormer windows in the roof. The Land Impact is 121 with Permissions of Copy/Modify. Please follow the rez instructions carefully so you can get the doors to work properly! The Glaveston is from the February 2018 Builder’s Box. You’ll soon be able to pre-order the May subscription.

I’ve got a couple of beautiful trees by Little Branch in the picture. One is the Yellow Orchid, a brand new release, and the other is the Black Olive which I promised in my last post to show you in more detail. An amazingly beautiful architectural tree (rotate it around to get the best placement), it’s available at the current round of FaMESHed. Both trees I had on the Spring texture setting.

Small but perfectly formed

with 15 comments

*~*~*

The “Stonehurst Redux” house by Galland Homes has a Land Impact of only 26 and it would  fit on a small plot. The floorplan  is beautifully thought out, with a spacious feel thanks to lots of tall windows, an outside balcony, compact internal staircase and open plan living.  Equally at home in the city or the countryside, it’s placed here within a town environment.

*~*~*

I thought it would be fun to furnish the Stonehurst and see how much I could get in.  It was quite a lot as you’ll see.  This is one side of the downstairs living area which is quite adequate to fit in a gorgeous retro compact kitchen from [tia] and minimalist dining set from Cheeky Pea.  The Chihuahua is there for size comparison, at least that’s his excuse waiting on the dining table for scraps!

*~*~*

Over to the opposite side and you can see the stairs going up to the first floor and a cosy lounge area furnished mostly by Revivial and MudHoney in typical Scandi style. There are a lot of windows which do give that indoors/outdoors feel but you could cover some of them with wooden blinds if you wanted to create more privacy in a particular area.

*~*~*

Upstairs now and I only furnished the far side of the first floor, you could fit in loads more. For instance,  a generous sized bed , small study area and small bathroom area behind room screens – they would all slot in easily.  I was really enjoying the two main textures of the walls – wood and stone – they compliment each other and give stability to a home which has a lot of ethereal glass.

The Scarlet Creative daybed (currently part of the Daisy gacha at June Arcade) is a little gem. All that style and work for a mere L$75 play of the machine, I think it was.  It is small (look at the Chihuahua on it) but like the Stonehurst house, it’s perfectly formed!

*~*~*

Here’s a close up on eTNIA‘s stunning retro Chinoiserie Vanity and Decor which is currently at the Vintage Fair and that Event runs to the end of the month. Ethnic and retro combine in this vanity set,  which isn’t always easy.  The Vase and Letters are extras from other designers. All the rest you get in eTNIA’s set and it’s reassuringly low prim.
