Happy 2015!  Hope everyone had a great holiday.  It’s always hard to get back in the swing of things after the holiday.  I finally found some time to log into SL and I have an exciting new interior design event to share with you, the Domus Fair Winter Edition runs from January 11 to February 14, 2015 with the theme “Nordic Minimalism” (based on design and architecture of Northern Europe).  Furniture and decorative elements with this style, predominantly are white, gray, black, wood, and warm gray with metal, wood, and natural fabrics.  Minimalism is one my favorite art movement and I’m looking forward to tackling this style in SL, keeping my staging clean, modern, almost zen like.

I’ll be Home for Christmas

Aphrodite Shop | Family Christmas Tree FR

I have more Christmas home decor for you today, this time traditional elegant from Aphrodite Shop.  The design duo of Marina Ramer and Jaylin Whitewood have created a whole Christmas Village in their main store sim, check it out!  They have designed everything that you can think of for the holidays from ice-covered bungalows, Hanukkah living room complete with cultural foods, couples animated decorative trees, holiday dining room table large enough to fit all your friends, family and invited guests, and my favorite is the Glowing Warm Christmas Set.  The Christmas set includes a trio of creamy taupe large club style armchairs and sofa appointed with embroidered decorative pillows, a marble ornament fireplace with Christmas stockings, garland, Christmas tree prints, and wooden trunk with hot chocolate and cookies for Santa.  Aphrodite Shop offers two options for a corresponding Christmas Tree, one with family animation complete with props and kids/parents animations, and the other for couples.

Aphrodite Shop | Glowing Warm LR Set FR

I finished the room with Park Place holiday accessories consisting of animated Snow Globes in Mason Jars (exclusive for the SL Christmas Expo 2014), Sleigh Card Holder, Words For All Sign, Toy Solider, Candy Cane Wreath, and Holiday Corduroy Drum Ottoman.  I really like this interpretation of a traditional Christmas with a blending of modern lines in furniture and highlights of red and green appliqué.  If you’re looking for a living room ensemble that can meld into your home, consider the Aphrodite Shop Glowing Warm Christmas Living Room and matching Christmas tree, it’s really beautiful.

To create the quaint and charming homespun Christmas room I used Park Place English Study Set (Hunt for the Bells item, desk & chair with ottoman not shown) and Follow Us Sugar Snow Christmas Tree, Christmas Ginger Socks Fireplace, Santa’s Cookies & Milk Tray, Plum Pudding Sleigh, Christmas Wreath, Thanksgiving Cart, and Snowglobe Teddy (Hunt for the Bells).  The whimsical Follow Us Sugar Snow Christmas Tree with gingerbread men is one of my favorite Christmas trees presented this year, available in frosted and evergreen variety making the room cozy and warm.  To accent the style, I used exclusives found at the Expo including: Park Place animated snow globes in mason jars, Spyralle Folk Art Christmas Tree (Frost Green) & Christmas Black Enamel LanternTrue North Designs Small Poinsettia Bowl, PurpleMoon Seasonal Mesh Owl Xmas Spirit (Hunt for the Bells), and House of Avro Christmas Wreath with Bells. To finish the room, I added La Galleria Christmas Plaque w Bow (**free**), Park Place Words for All decorative accessory, and Serenity Styles Winter Rug.  There are over 95+ creators on 8 sim offering everything from fashion, jewelry, poses, home, and breedable friends.  After a long day styling the homespun room, I sat down to read a book while wearing Ever An’ Angel  Elegant Angle Gown in Cranberry and Purple Moon Cycle Set in Emerald & Topaz Jewelry (Hunt for the Bells).  Hope the homespun styling gives you inspiration and you head over to the SL Christmas Expo to spend lindens for a great cause.
