Tasty!

with 13 comments

Gabriel: That gal from the Beeb looks tasty…
Pooper: Those tartlets look tasty…

It was the beginning of another boiling hot summer’s day in Londinium City and Gabriel had finished setting up the Home & Garden scene ready for the photographer. It was all about Fancy Decor’s latest set and it was to be given top billing in the March edition of the prestigious H&G4U magazine.  Not surprising, since it was an accomplished buffet set that dispensed food and drink to guests and was highly suitable for celebratory occasions. He sat down on [Circa]’s Moroccan ottoman, and kicked off his boots.  It was just the right height for a comfortable lounge around, and that wasn’t the only piece he’d used from them. The room was full with [Circa]’s Syndicate Sunday bargain plants, just the way he liked it, and a Moroccan floor lamp from 22769 only added to the sultry theme.

Switching on the stylish Tartessos Arts television set, a very reasonably priced box of tricks, he clicked to the News Channel from the BBBC and fell into a dream as Harriet the reporter talked about products from the latest Equal10 Event.  Now she was tasty!  The efficacy of said products quite passed him by.

Meanwhile, Pooper the puppy had climbed up onto the floating coffee table, knocked off the champagne flutes, and was eyeing up the tartlet tray whilst his master’s attention was fully occupied. His thoughts were of equal tastiness.  We can only hope the photographer gets there in time to remove the pup and restore order because Gabriel is pretty useless at this point!

An Island Resort

with 8 comments

 

A couple has arrived at a secluded Island Resort, maybe on their honeymoon, and while they’re in the bathroom, we can have a look at their bedroom. It’s quite early in the morning and because it’s so hot, they’ve left the door out onto the balcony wide open. Crisp cotton sheets, perfect customer service and luxurious décor are just two of the reasons why this resort got a five star rating!

If only! Still, at least in SL® we can dream. The room is an upper floor bedroom that leads out onto a gorgeous balcony, and it’s not the only one in the latest prefab by Galland Homes, this is the Cape Hatteras. I’ll do another post very soon to show you the rooms and the outside but take it from me, you could do worse for your summer vacation home.

Most of the decor is from unKindness. It’s the Island Resort gacha and you can try your luck on this at the June edition of Collabor88. Lots of nice animations in this bed, including a great couples sleep Menu, for the ultimate in laziness.

I also loved these new lanterns from Granola., you’ll find them over at UBER, which has recently started its new round but you can get in now without too much trouble. They come in various colours including this light blue which matched the bedspread perfectly.

Here’s the Home & Garden products I used today, in detail:-

Been around the World

with 9 comments

 

The inspiration for this scene was Chez Moi‘s World Map Décor.  Not only do we have lots of different products from around the world in this picture, the product creators also live in various far-flung places in real life – Second Life® is what draws us all together.

This is quite a mixture of products but they all match up, not least because of the modify and texture change options which certainly make furniture of this kind a lot more versatile.

*~*~*

Three close-ups of the products follow.  The first is Newchurch‘s Fiona Kitchen.  This is a modular low prim kitchen which, with a bit of judicious fiddling, will fit most kitchen spaces. All pieces are originally white but are easily tinted, so in this scene half of them are that cheerful deep orange.  Don’t look aghast – I’ve seen glaringly scarlet red kitchen units in real life, not to mention egg yolk yellow and lime green.  You can tint the prims, remove the bump/normal maps, and change the shine/specular maps as you see fit.

Several of the pieces have animations inside of them. The sink has several washing poses, the stove/oven has cooking poses, and the counter top has several food preparation poses.

 

The second close-up shows also Known as‘s Alonzo Dining set.  Those place mat settings are so useful, there’s no messing about finding separate plates, cutlery and glasses – they are all there in one quick rez.  Nice dark wood for the table and chairs, too.  I really like the shape of this set.  The chairs have great animations in them and aka has certainly thought carefully about what you need for a dining chair.  There’s poses for coffee/waiting/bored, then a Masculine menu with 6 poses, a Feminine menu with 5 poses, and a good Dining menu with suitable poses (soup/main meal/dessert/wine) for ladies and gents.

The food is from Dust Bunny’s Sweetheart Lunch  gacha.  I was very fortunate when I played on this machine – I got everything without too many repeats except for two prizes which I found on Marketplace as I didn’t want to push my luck.  I know when the Gacha Gods are smiling and when they are raising their eyebrows!

*~*~*

This is Chez Moi‘s Kensington living room set in close-up, please excuse the puppies! They are so tired out they didn’t even notice us scoffing lunch. The couch has room for 1-3 people, and it comes with 116 animations in the PG version and 180 animations in the Adult version:
~ 72 single poses (12 male animations and 12 female animations in each spot)
~ 44 animations for couples in love (22 x 2)
~ 64 intimate poses in the Adult version (32x 2)
There’s a texture change options for the throw – cream, biscuit, gold, chocolate, red, green, blue, dark grey, light grey – a great example of versatile furniture.

The Messy Man Cave

with 5 comments

Because we can all admit… that if it didn’t start messy, it sure ended up that way!

I’ve got two stunning pieces from KraftWork in the picture, the Murphy Bed and Le Plateau skybox.  Le Plateau is currently at the 6º Republic Event, and it’s in the Canada section.

I cornered designer, Nod, and asked her why KraftWork chose to represent Canada this time.  She said, “We never thought about doing Tokyo as 6º Republic has many Japanese designers which are so good in it, we would never make something better than they do already. So our choice was Canada and with that, comes snow.  Our first option was an Ice Hotel but ice textures can never be translated well in SL, the transparency etc. We made tests and we didn’t like it.  I had this loft saved for a while on my computer, I basically love the window, and this rustic, dirty chic – people love it in SL®.  So it was a combination of factors :)”

A superb skybox, the Le Plateau Loft pays tribute to the district of Le Plateau, a multicultural, dynamic and storied section of Montreal, Quebec. Once a thriving working class neighbourhood, it has been transformed into a Bohemian artist enclave with galleries, cafes and lofts that border McGill University.

*~*~*

*~*~*

Here’s the shelving unit with ladder, it’s right next to the window seat.  Great Industrial styling here.

*~*~*

And that fabulous Murphy bed?  Well you can either have it all folded up as in the picture below, or one click and the bed section gracefully descends to a usable position.  And talking of usable positions, pick the right maturity and you can have any number of those!  Details follow.  You’ll have to wait until Friday, though, that’s when the new edition of Man Cave starts.
