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…

Books (on Bed Shelf): Scarlet Creative

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)

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

Contempo

Contempo

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.

List of stuff:
Outfit: [The Blink] – Grey Plaid Shirt (for the Mens Dept.)
Bench: :::LITHIUM::: – bench (Group Gift)
Frame: Trompe Loeil – Contempo Frame (Subscribo Gift)

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.

List of stuff:
Art: Gabrielle Swindlehurst – Fields Of Frost (for the Gallery Gift Shop)
Screen: [AF] – ICONIC Screen (for the Mens Dept.)
Sofas: :::LITHIUM::: – Flower Sofa
Decoration:  Designer Prims – Vase with Branches

Hell

Hell

Some call it hell, others call it Monday. In any case – welcome to the new week.

Todays blogpost is a special blogpost for me, because this one is my 111th post on our little blog with the typo in the header. Also – as you certainly can tell by the pictures – I went again more fantasy like for a change. And it is my very first blogpost completely naked!

Hell 2

The good news for you is: nearly everything in todays post is for free. So let’s start with the avatar itself. The devilish – or lets call it Satyr-ish – avatar is the huntgift for the currently running Finding FabFree Hunt from Aeva // Heartsick. The Mythos avatar comes with the skin in different styles, shape (not shown here) the hooves, the ears and some horns. The skin is extremely well done and if you are in fantasy or in roleplay this one is a must for you. The additional horns I am wearing – the whitish ones with the wings and the skeleton like appearance – are the huntgift for the Twisted Hunt from XOPH. And they are all kinds of fabulous. So if you want to get these XOPH is sending you on a special quest. Instead of looking for a hunt item you have to find totems who whisper words to you – if you found all you have to tell the gift keeper these words and he will give you the gift. The horns are resizable by menue, can change the color and the dragon also can cast fire.

The snake eyes and the matching make up are the gift from A:S:S for the Finding FabFree Hunt. They are extremely well done and mesh. The hair is the platinum color option from the 2nd year anniversary gift from Dura wich is still available. It is a good idea to get that hair anyways since it is lovely made and became somewhat one of my “all day hairs”. So you see – a complete extra devilish look for free. The only thing that is not free is the Dreamscene by Garden Of Dreams I took the pictures in. The Hell Throne scene is – well – the hell, with a throne. The throne itself has a lot of animations and if you like it a bit warmer this Dreamscene is just the right one for you.

Hell 3

List of stuff:

Hair: Dura – The 2nd year Anniversary hair (Platinum)

Skin: Aeva // Heartsick – Mythos (for Finding FabFree Hunt)

Horns: XOPH – Dragonhunter Horns (for the Twisted Hunt)

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.

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
