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}.

There is no doubt that the current round of the Mens Dept. is one of the best so far – you can get so much wonderful stuff there. And since nothing at the Mens Dept. is over 150 L$ you also make a snip and your virtual wallet will not be exhausted after a shopping spree.

The preppy jumper comes from [Sheep Door] and is another good example about how creative creators work with the new medium mesh these days. The jumper can be worn with and without shirt. And again the shirt can not be worn alone. But I so love the overall look of this and also the folding of the jumper is way realistic. I chose for todays look the cropped shirt navy. Other colors and demos are available at the Mens Dept.

The bermuda shorts are from 22769 ~ casual couture and are the current huntgift in the Finding FabFree Hunt. The gift also contains an open shirt for men which is not shown here. And also my todays haircut is from the Finding FabFree Hunt and is the gift from ChiChicky.

List of stuff:
Hair: ChiChickie! – Tyler (Finding FabFree Hunt)
Jumper: [Sheep Door] Cropped Shirts Navystripe (with collar) (for the Mens Dept.)
Shorts:  22769 ~ casual couture – [homme] Bermuda Shorts Creme (Finding FabFree Hunt)
Furniture: [DECO] – Mumbai Ottoman (for the Mens Dept.)

In case you wonder about where I took my todays pictures in: it is the fantastic Mumbai Sky Loft from [DECO] which also can be found in the current Mens Dept. (and also the ottoman stool from the first picture). The name of this more then awesome prefab tells you it is a skybox – and it works pretty well as skybox indeed – but on the other hand it also works as a ground house as you can see in the picture. This is something I love about the prefab – that it works both ways. The Mumbai Sky Loft also has a entrance door for this purpose – and if you will use it as skybox you can either rezz a platform with gardening in front of it or build yourself a balcony.

Anyways – the texturing in this prefab is wonderful – rich earthlike tones, very sophisticated wood textures and a lot of neat things to find. The skybox is a maisonette prefab – there is a gallery also as second floor reachable via stairs.

List of stuff:
Prefab: [DECO] – The Mumbai Sky Loft (for the Mens Dept.)

I mixed for the interior many things I gained over the last few days in my inventory – but somehow they came together naturally. There is – first of all – the ICONIC sofa from Apple Fall which is also an items from the current Mens Dept. And this one is really a surprise because it holds so many poses in it – i believe even more poses then in my posestand i use from time to time. You find single and coupleposes galore and also the look of this one is really something I want to have in my RL also. I spiced the furniture up with some stuff also from Apple Fall from the current Round of FaMESHed – the Vogue frame and the hemp rug.

The shelf behind me – or in better words: the bookworm ladder – is one of the items from floorplan for the Mens Dept. And I just love it. Not only that I love books and own many of them in RL, but the idea is simple and brilliant. The lamp is a new release from { {BSD Design Studio} } and the plant is – again – a gift in the Finding FabFree Hunt and comes from [PP].

List of stuff:
Sofa: [AF] – ICONIC Sofa (for the Mens Dept.)
Frame: [AF] – VOGUE Frame (for FaMESHed September)
Carpet: [AF] – HEMP Rug Branches(for FaMESHed September)
Shelf: floorplan. – bookworm ladder / neutral (for the Mens Dept.)
Plant: [PP] – Cactus Container Garden (Finding FabFree Hunt)
Lamp: { { BSD Designs Studio } } – post modern 3legs lamp L

So – a lot of hunting and sales events in this blogpost – I guess that should keep you busy on this Sunday. Read you soon…

Monochrome

Monochrome 1

If you read our blog for some time you might have noticed that my blog posts are often influenced by my Real Life. I just noticed that by reading back some of my older posts. And even if I try to avoid it somehow bits and pieces pop up anyways. I guess that is my style of writing then. Well todays blog post is no exception, cause I spent the last two days at home, banned from second life, to write an essay for university. And I spent hours nailed on my chair on my working space. And now I log back in SL to show you: a working space.

Apple Fall – or short [AF] – are joining the current September Cycle of FaMESHed and they offer this monochromatic set. It is completely meshed and I absolutely love the patterns and the black and white feel of it. Of course you can purchase every single piece by its own, but i recommend to buy the whole set, cause it just matches perfectly together.

Monochrome 2

The set contains a table, the zigzag chairs, a fireplace the lamp, pictures and decoration, a sideboard and many other wonderful things also. And I guess you agree by watching the pictures that the texturing of these items is wonderful. It is not too loud and still nails the style perfectly. And by the way – you can see all participating designers for FaMESHed here.

According to the monochromatic topic I chose my todays outfit. The new released two piece suit from Kauna is rich on details – even the buttons are real and meshed. And the Otis Oxford shoes from Miamai in black/grey just match the overall look perfectly.

Monochrome 3

No doubt that mesh has a great impact on furniture designers also. And there is yet another great furniture store that just opened its gates: { { BSD Designs Studio } } is – right now – a small store but with the potential to grow really big in sl. What I personally like about the designs is on the one hand the quirkyness and on the other hand the functionability of them. My favorite piece is definitely the “tree table”. It is minimalistic but on the other hand splendid with details. Another good example what mesh can do and how it will change how we live in second live. The bonsai tree is also part of the FaMESHed set from [AF]

For todays blogpost I used again the wonderful – also completely meshed – With Aroha (Love) House from Designer Prims I blogged about in my last post.
