Home is the place where, when you have to go there, they have to take you in. ~ Robert Frost
For the past couple weeks I have been working hard on things in my RL home—specifically we are redoing the family room in anticipation of four different holiday parties this year. The carpet needed replacing. I had had it with the horrible wallpaper. And we needed some new shelving. The house is a mess because we have displaced everything to get to the walls and floor. But it’s starting to come into focus, slowly but surely. (Check back with me after the carpet is installed!)
Such a project is not so hard in SL, blessedly, especially when you get a beautiful, fully-furnished house like Cain Maven’s latest redo on his Eco design. The Eco III furnished includes a dining room, living room and bedroom set (with some adult poses), art on the walls and decorative plants. Just rez and go.
If you’re feeling like it, you can add your own touches, like this chair from Cory Edo, which is being sold at Collabor88 in a kazillion colors or Lilly Juno’s mid century modern chair (shown below) that includes several gorgeous poses. Lilly is back in SL if you were a fan of Immerse, selling both furniture and clothing.
Spooky Mistwallow has opened a new store called “Mirage” which includes pieces that are influenced by Persian and Arabic arts. Her recent dress, which I am wearing, cleverly uses a Persian rug design with lace added to it. The ladies from N-Core—Nuria Augapfel and Claire Messenger—are featuring drop dead gorgeous sling backs at FaMESHed in over a dozen colors. These are classics, made to go with several looks, and they match beautifully using N-Core’s web-based color matching system.
I <3 Maxi Gossamer’s jewelry, especially this intricate clockwork heart that Maxi is featuring at Collabor88. The lacey nail appliers from Sasy Scarborough accent the heart ring from Maxi. The full and lush, almost bouffant blonde style from Tabata Jewell suits Aida Ewing’s newest skin, Elvi, in tone and fashionality. And Audrey Lamede’s gorgeous hazel eyes complete the look.
