The end of smoky days…

Heart Homes | Paddy's Irish Pub Light Guiness

I’ve always loved the feel of supple leather, the grain glides gently over my fingertips revealing its’ story.  I adore large plush, tufted comfy brown leather club chairs.  They envelope you with a warm hug and instantly you are transported to smoke-filled rooms of swanky private men-only social clubs in the dawn of the new era, where exclusive membership was handed down through generations and tycoons of industry were making deals over Brandy and billiards. The bartender had the most coveted position, always in need and always an earshot away from breaking news.  Only rarely today will you find exclusive clubs of yesteryear; business is conducted differently, social drinking and moderate gambling is accepted.  Nowadays the distinctive club room style has merged into everything from steak houses, to office furnishings, to homes.  For a true gentlemans club experience you need a stately bar and Aphrodite Shop/Heart Homes has just released the perfect one, Paddy’s Irish Pub available exclusively at Room69 Event until March 20, 2015.  Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day and the tip-off to March Madness!  Paddy’s Irish Pub has 20 animations, 18 props and texture changer for wood, metals, & fabric with optional shamrock decor.  Heart Homes Paddy’s Pub is 23 prims, stools 1 prim each, and ideal for any occasion.

A huge trend in interior design is home bars, or bar alternatives.  Totally understandable with upcoming spring sporting events, summer BBQ parties, home brewers and man caves.  So, I challenge myself to design an interior space in the masculine private social society style highlighting Heart Homes Paddy’s Irish Pub.  I used Scarlet Creative Work Live Loft, an urban industrial warehouse space as my backdrop, I loved the juxtaposition of concrete, brick and metal with the lush leather of Zerkalo The Infamous Set (free gift @ Shiny Shabby Event) and the rich wooden bar.   I created three separate areas, one to play chess, another to enjoy terrace views, and finally the last one tucked in the back corner for private chats, or a game of dominos.  So, if you are hosting a St. Patrick’s Day party, need a place to chill for the big game, or just love the look as much as I do, pop over to Room69 Event and pick up Heart Homes Paddy’s Irish Pub!

Season Greetings!

Snowman Greetings

Happy Friday!  Well, Saturday in my case.  I’ve had nothing but problems with Second Life today, crashing, losing my Wi-Fi, items not rezzing, to the point I felt like I was trying to roll a square rock up a mountain in torrential rains with mud slides.  But I couldn’t let the evening/morning pass without getting my post out featuring some Fifty Linden Friday items (psst: there still available at 2:57am SLT).

Second Space Greeting card close-up

My weekend plans: I’m pulling my greeting cards out of my hidden Christmas storage stash and personally keeping the US post office in business.  Last year on SL, I sent and received a number of season greetings, loved them all, and I plan on creating my own card again this year very soon.  It’s a time to get in touch with friends you rarely see and celebrate the joy of the season.  For today’s post, I designed a mini card center complete with a secretary desk and greetings cards (FLF) from Second Spaces, red velvet tufted chair (**free**) from StoraxTree, comfy floor pillows from Fri.day Home (FLF), card holder tree from Sway’s (available at Uber) and the flirty Frosty & Freddie Stack of Gift Boxes Snowman also from Sway’s (FLF).  They are available in a transferable version, but they are too adorable to give away, so I named them and now they have a home.  Wishing you a wonderful holiday season and I look forward to receive your Christmas greetings!
