Only 2 more days for the 7th Annual Second Life Home & Garden Expo 2014!
Today, I have a very special treat for you, a French Provincial Manor Home, Maison d’Ete by Tess Spargel of Spargel & Shines Homes. I’ve had the wonderful fortune to work with Ms. Spargel a number of times in the past and at each opportunity I’m blown away by Tess’s incredible attention to detail, fine finishing and quality of design. All items are copyable. Spargel & Shine Homes point of view is antique ‘super chic.’ Elegance and refinement define this special designer, whether a home, a store build, or gorgeous furniture. The Maison d’Ete house is a stately three-story white plaster facade with iron balconies, window boxes, and a grand wrap around terrace. Two stories come with their own working fireplace, a main control system for the door & window openings, and window treatments. The drapes consist of sheers, powder blue satin pull backs, or bare. The main floor has numerous working doors that open to the terrace. Inside the grand manor you are greeted with a stunning staircase and a tiled great room with ample space for generous seating areas. The powder blue walls are offset by gilded gold paneling. The home is truly exquisite, inviting and livable. For the SL Home & Garden Expo Tess released the E’te Dining Set* (table & chairs with rezzable food, wine & lace table-cloth) and E’te Decor Set* (paintings, rug, urns, mirror, and candelabra), all donation items on Sim 6.
In this space, I created a music room using Kaerri Garden Piano* (Sim 8), Steaming Ahead Victorian Garden Bench (Sim 4), and Organica Belvedere Leather (Sim 6) seating area, adding a modern and whimsical nod to the formal elegant home. In separate areas of the grand room are small places to rest, relax, talk and enjoy the music. A tasteful and charming home filled with a touch of class!
