Day Off

Day Off

This weekend I took a day off and created a whole new home….

Day Off

A quick trip to the Home and Garden Expo, supporting the Relay for Life in SL, should satisfy anyone’s nesting needs. Start with this revised home from Cain Maven. With partial mesh, improved scipting and textures, this spacious two bedroom home offers a waterfall over the stairway, hot tub, built in security and tinted windows, a kitchen with full complement of appliances and seating and two fireplaces—inside and out. A fantasy home indeed.

Day Off

This is going to be a blow by blow of all the great furnishings I have recently gotten my hands on, most—but not all—from the Home and Garden Expo. First, Solange Cerveau is moving into mesh and she has started with this great gazebo with color change drape shown above that includes the vase of hydrangeas. This is not available at the Expo, however the great Adirondack chairs and tables from Cherelle Capra I put near the fireplace outside in back are available at the Expo.

Day Off

Kaerri Rae is also donating content at the Home and Garden Expo. She has made two very different sets: the Kauri and Paris collections. Above I show living room sets from both. The Kauri is a more masculine set with neutrals punctuated by blues in a very 70s style. The Paris collection is an eclectic combination of curves and color with turquoise and yellow pillows and artwork combined with more baroque lines in the furniture.

Day Off

Kaerri is offering a dining room set with sideboard, place settings, an assortment of vases and a shelving unit to hold those vases you don’t see in the photo. She also includes a floor vase. The starburst piece is from Apple Fall’s newest collection, which he is showing at the Grove (slurl below). Cherelle Capra is also offering the lovely shelving unit shown with pillows for reading or relaxing shown with a print of the magnificent Chicago skyline from Apple Fall.

Day Off

Kaerri has two bedroom sets at the Home and Garden Expo as well. The Kauri again has a masculine contemporary feel with a bed, artwork, and accessories plus the long low dresser that echoes the lines of the sideboard in the dining room set. The Paris bedroom collection also shows the eclectic nature of the living room collection and includes all pieces shown above plus a darling vanity with stool.

Day Off

A casual look is in order, and I pull it off with the new skinny jeans from Paul Lapointe who has the best butt in SL. These mesh skinnies are the best thing going on the grid right now and Paul made them in a variety of sizes and shapes for all you girls who like a little more booty or need more hips. My casual shoes and tank both come from Pixieplumb Flanagan’s latest collection.

Tiffy Vella’s newest sun hat has color change pieces all over so you can customize to your heart’s content. I changed the hat color to white, the flowers to pink with gold centers and the tiny flowers to purple with a hat band that is pink. Wear it around the house, for gardening, or to your favorite tea party.

Aida Ewing just came out with a new skin collection that is, as always, absolutely gorgeous. With neutral lip and eye, this look is ideal for a day off.
