It is funny how words can hook you up. Contempo is such a word. Trompe Loeil just released a new subscribo gift called “Contempo Frame” which you can see hanging above me. This came in quite handy since I wanted to decorate the prefab I want to blog about today anyways. And since Contempo is kind of a catchy word I tried to figure out what it actually means. And I failed! Because everyone seems to claim Contempo for different things that are not really connected to each other. Fact is: Contempo was a little magazine published 1931 – 1934 wich was quite influental on modernism. Another fact: Contempo is the catchy short for Contemporary and finds its usage in fashion, furniture, art and music. Even the landstream of the sim I am taking pictures on has a show called “Contempo”. To keep a long story and research short: I think that Contempo is a loose definition of a style that is quite clear structured.
Talking about groupgifts: The bench I am sitting on is a group gift from LITHIUM and is quite cute and also fits in the contempo-vibe of todays blog post perfectly. And the gift from Trompe Loeil also matches of course the contempo furniture set you can find at FaMESHed.
My todays look comes straight from the Mens Dept. The denims and the check shirt are both mesh from [The Blink] and they come as set. Both can be worn seperately. I especially like the folding of the denims a lot. Another example how mesh encourages designer to create an extra realistic look in their creations.
Todays pictures have been taken in the wonderful “Sound City” Studio Build by [CIRCA] – a modern house/skybox which has about 20 squaremeters Footprint and includes a small gallery. You can see a better picture of the prefab on the bottom of this post. But the most interesting part for sure is: The house is completely for free in the Finding FabFree Hunt. So if you are looking for a nice home – this definitely is worth searching for!
I combined the interior decoration from many things I have in my inventory. There are the flower sofas from LITHIUM which became a true SL classic already. The decor vase with the branches are from Designer Prims and the sequented screen in the background is from [AF]/ICONIC and also can be found in the current Mens Dept. The wall art is from Gabrielle Swindlehurst and can be found either at the Gallery Gift Shop or at her Exhibition at the Art India Gallery.
