Happy Saturday! Hope your week went well. I’ve been battling a flu/cold all week, so I’m going to skip waxing poetically and get right to the point. Today’s post features a few time sensitive events closing on Tuesday, February 28, 2017. First up is Park Place Home Decor Black Leather Chaise, Red Heart Garland Wall Decor, Gray Shag Diamonds Area Rug, Leafy Green Table Plant and French Walnut Round Accent Side Table exclusive for the Swank Event ending 2/28/17. The theme for February was truly, madly, deeply; which inspired the darker boudoir. Next is Brook Hill Livings recent release for the February round of The Crossroads Event, the Wagner Chair in Ebony and Spotlight, closing 2/28/17. I also used the Faun Chandelier in Midnight, available for sale at the main store. The remaining decor items are from a new to me subscriber monthly event called Deco(c)rate. On the 8th of every month a mystery box with 15 semi-exclusive items from top H&G designers are delivered to your inventory, if you reserved your cart for $1,500L before the 7th. Afterward the price doubles to $3,000L. In today’s post, I used Mudhoney Ginny Bed, Second Spaces Mood Lighting Candles, Cheeky Pea Forgotten Places Fireplace, Hextraordinary Antique Cherub Lamp, Stockholm & Lima The Lovers Trail and Serenity Style All for Love Suitcase. There are a number of other items that I hope to showcase before the new March boxes arrive. Personally, I’m still a little on the fence about a subscription event, time will tell if it’s for me. (I do love my bargains :-)) Lastly, I mentioned in my last blog post I wanted to spotlight more gifts from the Love Me…Love Me Not Hunt (ending 2/28) and Gloria is sporting the Facepalm Just Love red silk sleep shirt in standard sizing and mesh compatible. Gloria’s golden locks are HoneyAna, the new group gift from Truth Hair ($350L join fee). Hope you enjoyed the post, I’ve got couple more planned for the weekend….stay tuned!
Cheers 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!
Happy December! I know it seems a bit strange to offer joyous holiday spirit 19 days or so into the month, but I was so preoccupied in sharing my older home design with you, I wasn’t sure if I would be able to carve out time to return to Second Life and style for the holidays. Well, I just had too…the design bug bit me and with a few sleepless nights, I created a cute little ski chalet using What Next Alpine Cabin. Surprise, surprise…the cabin and most of the holiday decor from What Next is currently part of the 12 Days of Savings 50% off marketplace special (ends 12/25/16). I think this is the first year What Next and other home designers are participating in the MP blowout. Last year, I cleaned up on Truth Hair and Mandala Jewelry.
I love styling porches…the entryway needs to be inviting and cozy. With multiple lanterns, benches and welcome mat, Santa is sure to stop here first. I even left some hot cocoa and cookies on the ski lift for him!
Inside the one room cottage is a warm retreat with lots of seating, presents and stocking ready to be filled. An overall Nordic Winter theme in red, cream and touches of green is felt throughout the room. Lots of trees in every style are tucked in the corners and a sweet treat coffee bar displaying Brook Hill Living Finse Deer Tableware complete the Merry & Bright lodge!
