Como la flor

One of the fun things when doing decor scenes is being able to find items that blend and fit well together. I think of it almost like being a world traveler and finding odds and pieces that you like or perhaps it’s the oddly shaped piece that has been in the family for generations.  It can be quite challenging too, perhaps especially on days when you need to get something done and you don’t feel very creative or motivated.

I was tipping the scale on the not so motivated and feeling creative when I put this together and yet I’m pleased with the final result showcasing a mixture of fashion and home decor from all over the grid. Take a look at credits to get the full list of everything shown.

Happy Monday!

Happy Saturday! The credits were way longer than I thought, even with having much of the information it still takes time to sort it out and insert all the links and everything else that goes along with making a blog post.  Though I’m in a cheerful good mood today so let me share what I’m showing today.

I’ll start with what I’m wearing.  The Valery Skin is a new release by Insol and it’s available at Tres Chic.  I wasn’t familiar with this skin creator, so it was nice to try it out and was rather pleased with the skin tones and easy to use applier system. I’m wearing the tan version of the skin, but you can find an additional five tones (peach, miilk, honey, creme and cinnamon) as well.

011

The pulled back hairstyle called Alanis is by Opale and available in 9 different color sets also at Tres Chic. The lovely necklace is available in a black, silver or gold pack.  The cute dress with open shoulders is by Kaithleen’s and you’ll find it in a range of colors, at least 15 if not more.  Then I’m wearing one of the new releases by Empire, which are the Tithonia that are available at this round of Kustom9.  As always with Empire shoes, you get a 12-color hud that gives you quite a few options.  My last picture gives you a close up of the necklace and hair.

009ps

The last items being showcased are all the decor items. The first is the rustic Whimsical Light set by [Merak], available at Shiny Shabby.  The candle in the vintage lamp light can be turned on and off. The painted tree comes in two versions, showing the green base, the other not show is silver. The rustic vase also in two versions, shown is green base as well and the other not shown is red. They can all be purchased separately or in a discounted pack.

I’m showing rugs from Bee Designs, and it’s part of their Haven Tree House Gacha out now at Shiny Shabby.  Other items from this same creator are items from their Bella Gacha set at Lost & Found. The two frames above the bed, the suitcases on the bed and decor boxes on the chair.  The small golden table that holds the teal lamp is by I[BDKX]I-//- and is available at On9, which is open for another couple or so days. The lounge type chair is by Sources and at Cosmopolitan.  You can change the texture of both the chair and the blanket.

That’s all for today. It’s time for me to grab some lunch before I start on getting this posted to Flickr.

It seems WordPress has changed the format on how to do blog posts, or it might have previously changed and I was using the old version. I don’t know.  I can’t seem to find how to get the previous way back, because I’m not liking what feels like a boxed in version.

Anyways, don’t have much time this afternoon so I’m going to point you to credits today. Still lots of great Christmas decor all over grid and also fashion.

Have a great Monday!

The Cranmore

0033ps

I mentioned in my blog post yesterday that today I would be featuring a new home. So today I bring you The Cranmore by creator Cain Maven. If you’ve been around Second Life for a while you’re probably already familiar with his homes under his brands Maven Homes and also Quantum Luxury Homes.

Both brands offer you high quality homes in various styles in a wide range of prices. Though having just recently toured one of the previous new releases, the “Roma” home, beautiful large luxury home is almost too simple to describe the beauty and magnificence in size and looks of that particular home.

0062ps

The Cranmore is way smaller in comparison, but it’s also not a small home either at a size of 32 m x 35 m.  It’s a bit of a mixed brick style build as you get a bit of a renovated barn with an industrial rustic feel with a touch of modernness. What I especially liked immediately upon entering the home was the sense of not feeling like I was boxed in.  I think that’s attributed to the openness, large picture windows and the high ceilings, which is something you don’t find a lot these days.

015ps

The rooms in the house include a bedroom, bathroom, front room, a kitchen with a dining/living room space and attic. The kitchen and bathroom decor is removable. I had a little fun decorating the kitchen with old and new items.  The kitchen as mentioned is an open plan where you have the dining room and another living room space.  The picture below shows the other side of the kitchen as you enter it through the open barn doors.

018ps

You can see the attic space in the picture above that gives you another level to put in another bedroom, office or another sitting area.  Plus you can see what I mean about the openness and high ceilings.

022ps

Above is the bathroom and the next picture is the bedroom.  Just take a look at the realistic detail of the materials used.

021ps

In the second picture you saw the home from the back and you see the big window just behind the green loungers, which are another collaboration by Shutter Field and Decor Junction and are available currently at Tres Chic.

If you click the window or the wheel on the wall, you will see the wheel begin to spin as the window opens, giving you this wonderful view out or whatever view you may have once positioned.  You can see my hands there as I am taking a breather enjoying the night hours and the flock of birds.  Now most species of birds rest during the night as I came to read, though there are some birds like for instance some sparrows that fly at night during migration periods. I think it was one of those periods.

024ps2

If you read and saw all the pictures, thank you for taking the time as I know it’s a very long post.

Below credits I’ve also listed information the creator has provided. The house is set to be released this weekend, and while I’ve done best to show you the house from almost every angle, go check it out for yourself!
