Retreat

Retreat 1 Happy Sunday everyone. Todays blogpost is dedicated to some finds at the Mens Dept., some hunt gifts and most of all again decoration for you winter homes. But lets start with my todays outfit and look: The shirt and the pants I am wearing are from the Mens Dept. and they are the items from etam. Nice rigged mesh items and I like the pants because they are just that kind of homewear I love to put on on a lazy sunday. The boots are from BSD Designs and are also rigged mesh. The Equestrian Boots are unisex and are just the right kind of footwear for a nice winter walk.
Hanaya have released a lot of wonderful items for the Relay for Life Christmas Expo. The adorable Wintery Driftwood Birdbath is one of them and the Frozen Pond Bench in my back is another one. They are just lovely pieces of decoration to give your home that special winter feeling. The house I am standing in front of is the new release from Trompe Loeil for Collabor 88. The Frostbite Cottage comes in 4 different colors. I chose the white one and you can see a full shot of the house on the bottom of this post.

Retreat 2I decided to decorate the Frostbite Cottage in a more man-ly way this time. And again there are some fantastic furniture finds with men in mind at the Mens Dept. Like the ensemble from {af} called “Ralph’s Entryway” containing the drawers, the model sailboat, the brass lantern and the rope suspended gallery. I combined it with the new released Lounge Chair in corduroy from Trompe Loeil (tan), the Loveseat Corduroy (tan) also from Trompe Loeil (both for Collabor 88 also), the hunters living room table from World of Wood and the Winter Day Bed from WetCat.
The Winter Day Bed is the huntgift for the current running “Home for Christmas Hunt”. And while we are talking about hunts: the chalkboard in the back of the Winter Day Bed is also a huntgift. This time it is from evolve and it is their share for the “With Love Hunt”. The “Grannys Type Case” above the Lounge chair is an Advent Calendar gift from 22769 for the 13th December – so mark that date in your calendar, because it is lovely. The Antler Chandelier comes from “The Loft” and the rug is a new release from {af}

The room divider comes from LISP who really have some neat christmas decoration items. In my reading corner I used the Eames Lounge Chair from 2Xtreme and the hunters bookshelf from World of Woods. And these cute window decorations are from [CIRCA]. The festive pinecones are the current groupgift at the store. Also from [CIRCA] is the “Boho Winter” Snowflake Tree – and it is a part of their Gift for the Peace On Earth Hunt. The Primitive Timber Bench is also a part of a huntgift – this time from POST and for the “With Love Hunt”

Retreat 4I found this lovely butterfly table at L&K Prefabs. Not only it is wonderful made – but as you can see in the picture you can unfold both wings of it individually by mouseclick. It is the perfect piece of decoration and even for secondlife extremely practical. The decoration set is also from L&K Prefabs and just matches the overall look of my little winter retreat place. The Christmas Tree comes from BoatHouse. The little tree also was one of the Advent Calendar Gifts from the store. The Christmas Punch Side Table comes from Pestique. It rezzes by mouseclick either the punch (like shown here) or wine. It is the huntgift from the store for the Home For Christmas Hunt. And the frames on the floor again come from {af}.

Retreat 5And finally – like promised – the outside view of the lovely Frostbite Cottage from Trompe Loeil. I really must say that I love the size of this cottage – it is just not too big or too small – just the right size for bringing on some winterish feeling in your secondlife homes.

In the Greenhouse

greenhouse_1

Here I am again, trying to improve my gardening skills. Well not really – you already know that I am lousy with plants. But I found this adorable greenhouse on the Silk Road Hunt and I just have to show it to you. The greenhouse has 5 neat poses, two of them shown in the pictures, and is just a wonderful extra for your virtual home because it has just 25 prims. Hey – I am sure you have furniture that is way more heavy!

But let us talk about the ArisAris Summer Fashion Event, shall we? Mondra already showed you some of the fashion for the ladies to find there. And I must admit that there is not so much to find for boys also. But – there are some items that are worth it to check this event out. Like the leatherjacket and the denims from .::Fdo.0m::. . All rigged mesh and what I especially like is that you can wear the jacket also without tee. In fact the combination possibilities are splendid and you have alpha layer for each and every combination. And the yellow leather jacket is definitely an eye catcher that is not too loud.

The little birdy comes from the 2Xtreme storehunt. 2Xtreme moved their store and made a hunt after 12 different birds. And the gifts you can get are… birds. They are cute, blink and most of all have sound. So if you want a natural feeling on your sim you better go hunting. And by the way – the storehunt is very enjoyable because you just see so many things you will definitely like.

BAUHAUS

bauhaus_1

FINALLY! Honestly – I was waiting for this my whole secondlife long. If there is a style that just matches secondlife like a glove it must be Bauhaus. The clear forms just match prims and meshes so perfectly. I blogged in The Classics already about the Eames Lounge Chair and the Corbusier Sofa. Now it is time for the second run on classic furniture in secondlife.[HANDverk] take part at CULTURE SHOCK. And thankfully [HANDverk] decided to present Bauhaus furniture and accessories there. I am chilling in the famous Wassily Chair which comes with splendid poses/animations that are easy to adjust. Also the coffee table and the tea set are from [HANDverk] and of course they are also Bauhaus classics. Same goes for the lamp. The painting behind me is not part of the set – I uploaded the texture by myself. It is from the Dutch painter Piet Mondrian and is called “Composition 10” (1902).

bauhaus_2

The denims I am wearing are a special preview for the new cycle of the Mens Dept. which opens 7th May. The “Schanzen Denims” come with optional texture boxershorts and are mesh in 4 sizes. The necklace I am wearing is a gift at CULTURE SHOCK from Apple May Designs and the hair is my new favorite hairstyle from [iruco]. And if you all got now very excited – please keep in mind that CULTURE SHOCK openes to the public on May 4th, 4pm SLT!

The Classics

The classics 1

Even if you are not interested in design or art or furniture – there are some certain pieces you will always remember when you see them. Take this lounge chair i.e.: looks somehow familiar? Seen it in a movie or a television series, maybe? Well – the design is from an american couple called Charles and Ray Eames – and they designed the Eames Lounge Chair sometime in 1956. The chair became instantly a furniture classic after its release – and now it is also available in second life.

I raved yesterday already about the marvellous New York Skybox from 2Xtreme. Nevertheless – a skybox is only a floating bunch of prims without furniture. So the designer behind 2Xtreme also made some chairs and beds and sofas. But not only some neat pieces made of sculpts, meshes and prims: He brings RL design classics in second life like with this Eames Lounger and the Corbusier set shown below. All furniture comes of course with animations and poses.

The classics 2

For my todays look I went again to the Gallery Gift Shop and got myself the striped turtleneck mesh jumper from 22769 ~ casual couture. The stripes are bold and the sweater gives me just that special comfi look and feel. The denims are from the Sanity Falls Hunt and the necklace is from the Fantasy Faire 2012 and proves that you can find wonderful craftings there for your casual look without wearing fairy wings or elfen ears.

Gentleman in New York

new york 1

It has been a while since I blogged some prefabs. Well, the time is now, cause I just found the most awesome skyhome of the grid. The 2Xtreme skybox New York is more or less a loft with a gallery. It is very urban and yet extremely chic and you have so much place for your furniture also. Included in the skybox is a teleporting system. First of all to get to the roof garden (not shown here) but also to get to the ground. The setup is fairly easy to do. Included in the skybos is a shower with over 30 animations (and yeah, there are also some adult ones). Also the skybox features two very comfi fireplaces.

The bedroom furniture (with the Marilyn poster) is also from 2Xtreme and can be purchased at the store. If you sense some kind of retro vibe you are totally right – it is called “satin fourties bedset white” and it comes with lamp, bed, rux, backdrop and the poster. The bed itself holds 16 multispeed animations and 11 cuddle animations (most of them are from Kabuki Creations) and it just looks fabulous.

Since the pictures do the Skybox no justice be prepared that I will show you some more of it in further posts.

The outfit I am wearing is the gift from Kastle Rock Couture for the Sanity Falls Hunt and it comes with shoes. If you have not done this hunt yet – do it now, cause it is a blast of fun. Please remember that you need a special HUD for this hunt. And from my point of view this have been the best invested 100 L$ in SL so far. The story of the hunt drags you in. It is brilliant.

And one last word to my hair: This is a freebie – believe it or not. It is from the 1920s Project Berlin Sim and was provided by Pocket Mirrors. Nevertheless: The sim is always worth a visit. But please be prepared to wear some theme matching clothing when you explore old Berlin!
