Home and Hearth

with 9 comments

There are a lot of fireplaces around at the moment, so I thought I’d do four different styling scenes for comparison.  In the picture above, you’ll find a country cottage/rustic styling where we are bordering on the cutesy but we aren’t there yet.  It’s warm woods and country prints, especially tartan which is a popular and seasonal texture. The look is homely and comforting, just look at that roaring fire. Wouldn’t you like to put your feet up?

*~*~*

Next, we have quite a contrast with Industrial styling which is that more utilitarian, every object has to have a purpose and not be entirely decorative.  The lines are angular, with materials which often contain a lot of metal like copper and zinc.  Woods tend to be darker so as to make the metals stand out in stark relief.  It’s a popular style, not least because there’s very little fuss to be made about it.  As a rule, one plant may be included and it’ll be the sort that takes pollution out of the air, something like that.  That deer is not strictly Industrial, in fact she’s not at all, but she is carrying a piece of ivy for decorating.

*~*~*

This is classical, even historical styling, although strictly speaking, the background should be panelled wood in one texture.  The keyboard is a Clavichord,  a European stringed keyboard instrument that was used largely in the late Medieval, through the Renaissance, Baroque and Classical eras. It’s a really beautiful piece by Fancy Decor who specialises in furniture and décor through the ages, right up to modern day sets.

*~*~*

 

And our last fireplace has that Cute/Folksy styling, a popular decorating genre in our virtual world with more than a few designers making suitable sets.  The style extends to many seasons, here it’s Christmas based. Red, cosy textures, warm woods and soft toys.  Even a bit of tongue in cheek wall decorating here 🙂

Too glam to give a damn

with 2 comments

I liked the sentiment of this set by Fancy Decor. I’d say it’s about creating what you think constitutes the concept of “Glam” and not to bother about what anybody else says.  I sorted through my recent Home & Garden and came up with some fabulous pieces to match the main set.  If you haven’t visited the Home Show 2017 or would like another look, then you’ve got until July 29th.

Don’t forget, you can click on the picture to view a much larger version.
