Winter White

winter-white-tylars_jan-2017Happy Tuesday!  Out here in Silicon Valley, we are having some bad weather with flash flood warning, thunder and lighting, and a snow forecast for the Santa Cruz Mountains.  I know I shouldn’t complain, but I’m worried about the creek behind my house overflowing.  Anyway, winter is still around and today I wanted to pay tribute to it featuring Tylar’s Treasures Celebrate Winter Decor collection available for sale at Color Me Happy Event until 2/6/17.  The collection includes a modern white wood and marble fireplace, white ottoman trunk with beige pillows, and three bare trees with twinkling lights and a “celebrate” mantle sign.  Color Me Happy is a small event highlighting new and upcoming designers.  This is their first event, so I’m not sure if it will be a recurring shopping experience.  I also wanted to highlight the Snowy Landscapes framed artwork above the fireplace from The Artist Shed, a free gift on the Winter Blows Hunt until 1/31/17.winter-blows-hunt-12017-prismAnother gift on the Winter Blows Hunt is Wynona by Prism, a white cable-knit turtle-neck sweater dress with black belt.  I love the detail knit on the dress with larger cable-knitting down the middle and small knit on the side and neckline.the-faun-chandelair-696x696The last item I would like to showcase is Brook Hill Living Faun Chandelier available in Gold and Silver/Black at Shiny Shabby event until 2/15/17.  The Faun Chandelier is elegant, opulent and exquisitely detailed with glorious illumination…it’s a statement piece that makes the room.  In addition, all Brook Hill Living buildings are 50% off in January, both on the marketplace and in-world store.  Stay warm, dry and safe!

Happy New Year!

brook-hill-portobello-setCheers to 2017!  I hope you had a wonderful holiday season and a magical New Year’s.  Since I’ve just returned to Second Life after a long hiatus, I didn’t have time to decorate for Christmas.  I’m just finishing up my landscaping of a winter country village with an overall theme of Winterfest. What is Winterfest you ask, well for me it’s a celebration of all things winter from snowflakes to icy landscapes.  Today’s styling features Brook Hill Living Portobello Set available at The Crossroads Event until 1/28/2017.  The Crossroads is new to me monthly event highlighting top SL creators from female fashion, skin, accessories and home decor.  Brook Hill’s Portobello set includes a high back tufted cream sofa with alternative red stripe linen fabric on the arms and seat.  There is also three pillow collections to choose from and a lite “Rockstar” marquee sign in two colors (not shown above).  Other items in the styling are What Next Amelie & Winter Picture Shelves and Dust Bunny Winter Treasures Collection.  I had hope to publish this blog sooner but time got away from me.  Hope you enjoyed my first interior design blog for the New Year.  I’m pleased I returned to SL, even if it’s limited because it makes me happy!
