My Four Walls

My Four Walls 1

And I am back again (kinda) – have you missed me? OK – I am seriously pissed. As I already told you I moved flats in RL and the phonecompany messed up my internet contract big time. In fact the issue is still waiting to become solved (I am still hoping). Anyways – a buddy of mine was so kind to let me use his computer for this blog post, but of course it feels different when you are not sitting on your own machine. Anyways – his computer is really good, better then mine. I might steal it from him 😉
Todays main actor is the fantastic Olisipo Skybox from L&K Prefabs. It is available at the Designers Warehouse right now and you can get it for half of the regular price. And it is so worth it. The texturing is amazing and it has many neat gadgets like opening doors and a fireplace and many really interesting angles to decorate. My pictures surely do the skyhome no justice since – because of above mentioned RL issues – I was not able to decorate all of the rooms without my buddy strangeling me. But here are the facts: You have two huge bedrooms, a kitchen and a bathroom – and you have a hallway you can see in above picture in the background.
Tha Wall Art behind me is from the new round of the Gallery Gift Shop and comes from #7. The cube chair I am lounging in is from [bauwerk] who finally opened their doors to the public. And if you are a furniture addict like I am I strongly recommend the Four Walls Hunt – because literally everything you can see in the background – the chair, the sideboard and the frames – are from the hunt which is by far one of my most fav hunts in the grid.

List of stuff:
Chair (foreground): 22769 ~ [bauwerk] Cube Chair White Leather
Wall Art: #7 – Cubed Wall Glass (for the Gallery Gift Shop)
Chair (background): L&K Prefabs – Good Old Armchair (Four Walls Hunt)

The painting in my back is from the Gallery Gift Shop and it is called “Our Beach in November” by Gabrielle Swindlehurst who is a master in highly atmospheric pictures. The furniture – except the rug which was an advent gift from [CIRCA] – comes from [bauwerk] and is a new release. On the left you can see the inbuild fireplace of the Olisipo Skybox. And the ceiling lights are the opening groupgift from *bbqq*.

My Four Walls 3

Just for clarification: I only use the telescope for watching the stars and NOT for watching my cute neighbour when he leaves the shower, ok? Anyways – the telescope is a brilliant prob from Hanaya called “Star Party” and it is the gift for the also currently running Cold Winter Nights Hunt. It comes of course with pose animations and is really very well done. The reading nook I am sitting in front of is from BRENO and like the modular shelf from Scarlet Creative it is again a gift for the Four Walls Hunt.

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.

Bench: ~Hanaya~ – Frozen Pond Bench (for the “Relay For Life Christmas Expo”)

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}

Retreat 3In my “sleeping corner” I used another huntitems: the Stockholm Bed from Vespertine is – again – a wonderful gift from the “With Love Hunt” The bedside table is from the Mens Dept. and is the item from PILOT. 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.

Prefab: Trompe Loeil – Frostbite Cottage white (for Collabor 88)

Homestory

Bedroom and Bath

Happy Sunday everyone. Missed my blog post about houses and furniture? Well good news is here: you will get an overdose today. And you will only see bits and pieces of myself since the main actor indeed is the fabulous new skybox LONDON Appartment from [AF]. And since this skybox is huge (but only has a Land Impact of 58 thanks to mesh) I decided to show you room by room, making a little homestory about how I start my day.

So – obviously we begin in the bedroom (above left). I just crawled out of my snuggly bed from Scarlet Creative. The Noelle Modern Bed comes with multiple poses for single and couple usage and what I like most about it is the fact that you can actually move the poses to your needs. The books and the lamp left to the bed are also from Scarlet Creative and they show so much love for detail. The rounded shelf is from [bauwerk] and will become released soon. And the candles are a gift from Designer Prims.

So I am on my way to the bathroom. And I am wearing the Silk Flare Pants in autumn bleed which are the huntgift for the Autumn Effect Hunt from 22769 ~ casual couture. And talking about gifts. The washing table in the bath is the new Groupgift from the same store. It comes with three animations (washing hands, shaving and brushing teeth). It is the first piece of furniture I know that works with the new Linden Labs Functions like temporary attachments. Because the washing table attaches the razor or the toothbrush to your hands, but they do not clutter your inventory.

After doing my morning stuff I relax a bit in the Retro Bubble Chair (again from Scarlet Creative). And then it is time for getting dressed and a breakfast to start my day…
List of stuff:
Bed: Scarlet Creative – Noelle Modern Bed
Books (on Bed Shelf): Scarlet Creative
Lamp: Scarlet Creative – Adler Lamp
Ballchair: Scarlet Creative – Bubble Chair
Rug: Scarlet Creative – Adler Rug
Candles:  Designer Prims – Candle Set Cream
Shelf: [bauwerk] – curved shelf (soon to be released)
Art: Gabrielle Swindlehurst – Fields Of Gold – Five (for the Gallery Gift Shop)
Books: BoatHouse – Book Stack 5
Washing Table: 22769 ~ casual couture – Good Morning Gorgeous (Groupgift)
Plants: Scarlet Creative – Love Leaf Jug Plant
Pants: 22769 ~ casual couture – Silk Flared Pants autumn bleed (for the Autumn Effect Hunt)

Homestory Hallway

One of the things that really amaze me about the LONDON Appartment is the hallway and I am sure you will love it as much as I do. As you can see in the panoramic shot (the middle one) the texturing is gorgeous and not too heavy.

So – I found my denims and my jumper and are on the way to the living room and kitchen wich are downstairs. One thing about design in secondlife: there are classics within secondlife. Like furniture that was created in admiration of RL designs and I absolutely love that. But there are pieces of furniture that became already classic pieces WITHIN secondlife. And one of these rare items is for sure the Asylum Octo Lovec Chair from LISPs Bazaar. It is strange, it is quirky and it is a beautiful piece of art coming out of secondlife. Everyone needs that chair (or another one out of this series). Another wonderful piece of interior design is the Light Tree from ICONIC you can see in the middle shot in the first floor.

As you maybe know I come from Germany – and around here it is common that we a) have our wastebins in the hallway (in huge, old buildings) and especially for students like I am b) that we do not leave our bikes on the street.

List of stuff:
Chair: [bauwerk] – cube chair leather (soon to be released)
Potato: [bauwerk] – rattan sitting bag indian spice (soon to be released)
Shoes (foreground): :::GABRIEL::: – Driving Shoes Brown (Groupgift)
Boots (behind): DUH! – Brown Suede Workboots (Finding Fab Free Hunt)
Chair: LISP Bazaar – Asylum Octo Lovec Chair
Lamps: [North West] – Petite Lamps (closing sale)
Art: [bauwerk] – Vertex (soon to be released)
Tree: ICONIC – Light Tree
Wastebins: Urban Spirit – Domestic Wheelie Bins (MP Freebie)
Outfit: 22769 ~ casual couture – Autumn Outfit (for the Gallery Gift Shop)

Homestory Kitchen

My mother always said: the heart of every home is the kitchen. And wo am I to disagree. There are a lot of kitchens in secondlife, but this one is definitely my favorite. It comes from Trompe Loeil and is the current item for Collabor88. First – like everything that Trompe Loeil releases – the texturing and the overall look and feel is flawless. What really impressed me a lot was the set up of this kitchen. With the “kitchen planner” – wich is also the rezzer for the kitchen – it is so easy to move the complete furniture to the right spot. One click install – this kitchen definitely fulfills this task. Of course the kitchen comes with cute animations and of course there is a version available with NSFW animations also. The kitchen is available in green, orange, purple – and shown here teal.

Noticed the hot water maker on the kitchen? This is a gift that can be found at the Gallery Gift Shop and it is – like the whole event – way cute.

List of stuff:
Kitchen: Trompe Loeil – Timeless Kitchen (for Collabor88)
Hot Water Maker: Gift at the Gallery Gift Shop

Homestory Livingroom

Finally breakfast. I am sitting on the Adler Dining Table from Scarlet Creative – and it is way cute. First of all I love to combine rustic furniture with way modern things and second the table rezzes different meals – from breakfast to sushi – there is everything you can dream of. The Classic Fireplace also comes from Scarlet Creative and the drawers are the plain version from the last cycle of the Mens Dept. by floorplan. The skyline picture is again a gift you can get at the Gallery Gift Shop. And the lamps are a freebie from nordari.

It is time to get prepared for work. But first I rest a bit on my new won Baroque Bench Popular at the Arcade Gatcha Event. The bench – again – comes from Trompe Loeil and it is super cute and it comes with 15 different animations. My students bag – where i carry my notebook and books and all student stuff with me comes from NYU and is from L’accessoires. Look at the detailing on this bag – isn’t it wonderful? Finally the water dispenser was the huntgift from Nudolu for the Gallery Gift Shop Anniversary hunt.

Well – that was a lot! I hope I showed you enough of the fantastic LONDON Apartement by [AF] that you start drooling already. Please note that I did some minor modifications on the skybox since I removed the panorama view over London for lighting purposes.

List of stuff:
Table and Chairs: Scarlet Creative – Adler Dining Table
Lamps: nordari – Recycling Lamps
Fireplace: Scarlet Creative – Classic Fireplace
Art: Gift at the Gallery Gift Shop
