3.19.14

Decor post today!

I have been busy setting up the new skybox from What Next available at The Garden by The Liaison Collaborative.

So far I have just set up the living room/entry way area so I wanted to show those off today:

3.19.14

The shelving is built into the skybox and they do come empty. Any decor items you see I filled the shelves myself since I seem to have a large assortment of random knick knacks.

As always some closer shots of all the little items:

On to the credits as they always take a while.

2.28.14 – Bookworm’s Nest

The Arcade opens tonight at midnight! – If you haven’t already joined the in world group I suggest you do that and get the pre-loader HUD that is available to help with loading all the gacha ads ahead of time.

On to my post though, which I just so happen to love today. *.*

{Vespertine} is easily one of my top favorite decor/build stores – and the gacha that Amelie is offering up this round for the Arcade is no exception. The textures are fantastic ( I love worn/warm woods and dark colors ) and the items are able to be used as a set or individually. Without further rambling – The Bookworm’s Nest:

A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies...

Bookworm's Nest

I have worked in some other items from other stores because I enjoyed setting up these scene, but 90% of the items are from {Vespertine}. You can see all the individual items for the specific Bookworm’s Nest gacha HERE on Amelie’s flickr.

On to the credits as decor posts always take me awhile 😛

The follow-up post to yesterday’s “exterior” blog post.
Today I am bringing you a peek inside ❤

'Tis The Season

I am using a bit of the same stuff from my last interior post but with a lot of new things added.
I just liked a lot of things ( the Christmas tree and stuff ) so I wanted to use them again 😛

I tried to space the “sections” of the house out in the credits but be warned they are incredibly long ❤

I know that Halloween is still a bit away, but I decorated my most recent house in the theme of a Halloween Party.

The build itself fits a creepy little Halloween vibe and I personally love it for fall:

Weathered

The little Trick or Treat! sign is new at the Men’s Dept, but you can make it say whatever you wish. It comes with the sign itself (the lights even blink!) and a letters/symbols pack to make your own sayings. I just went with “Trick or Treat!” because obviously it fit my theme 😛

On to the interior:

Trompe Loeil released a new furniture set at FaMESHed which opened October 1st. I LOVE this set.
You really can do so much with it since it is texture change. I went with oranges and warm tones for my photos:

10.5.13

There are TONS of color combos available for all the furniture though, as well as the ability to change the blankets and pillows. The set itself is 7 pieces (or you can purchase individually) and it is all materials ready if you use a materials enable viewer. The coffee table even has the ability to click to open the drawers or the top lifts up….so many options. It is available in both a PG an adult version as well.

Aside from the furniture I used a bunch of cute Halloween themed items from Candy Fair and other events to set up my little Halloween party theme:

Lark has released some fantastic items for Candy Fair, almost all of which you can see in the above photos. The chocolates and food items are insanely well done and very realistic and the candy trick or treat buckets are perfect as well. I went a little crazy setting up my party scene but I am pretty happy with how it all came out 🙂

I am also working on another post that I might get done later today/tomorrow, but that is for another time 😛

For now, on to the credits:

7.28.13

Enjoying a lazy Sunday today so I felt like doing another home interior post along with my outfit details:

7.28.13 - Sunday Morning

I picked up these sweat pants last week from Auxiliary when they were at SL Fashion Week, but got too busy and missed blogging them before the event was over. I still wanted to use them in this post though because I had been wanting a cute new pair of sweats for a while and these are adorable. I also got them in pink ❤

I also FINALLY got around to setting up the Summerhouse from LISP that is available at Collabor88 for just a few more days:

7.28.13 - 2

I love decorating smaller rooms/spaces so this gazebo was perfect.

You twist to fit the mold that I am in.

4.23.13 – Home & Garden

I love doing home/furnishing posts so today’s is gonna be pretty pic heavy and probably contain a lot of rambling 😛
I recently obtained lots of new furniture thanks to a few new store releases and events that are currently underway so I want to share alllll the things.

First up, going to show off some new furniture from HANDverk that I set up inside the Scarlet Creative Saturday Morning Simple Skybox.

Snapshot_003

The Barcelona Chair and Couch from HANDverk are made using realistic scaling so they fit better to the standard sizes of the SL avatars. That means your couch won’t look like it should be able to hold 40 people on it, but realistically seat one or two avatars nicely. I don’t often go crazy for animations in furniture, but I was honestly impressed with the cuddles that are built into this couch. I LOVE them. I wish now that I showed some of them in this post, but I am so happy with them I am liable to go back and do another post so you guys can see them all. The adult version of this couch even includes adult animations, in addition to the cuddles. It offers 62 different animations total.

One of my other favorite pieces shown here is the Origami Crane Set from 11th Hour. I love cute little things such as this that I can rez around to make my house look a little more “lived in”. The Origami Crane Set is a hunt item for the Royal Living Magazine Birds and Bees Hunt and you can hunt for it up to the 28th, which everyone should go do.

The Liaison Collaborative’s new event, The Garden, started its first cycle not that long ago and has SO MANY great items for outdoor landscaping. One of my favorite sets is the Sheryl Garden Pergola from MudHoney:

Snapshot_002

The Sheryl Set includes the chair, bench, wire table, rug, pergola, lantern, drum table and ceiling fan, which actually moves. I had so much fun setting up this scene and once I added all the little bunnies I loved it even more. Hope you enjoy the set up as much as I do!
