A new loft- redecorated (also insanely image heavy)

February 6, 2009 § 1 Comment

I was only going to buy a desk and chair, honest! And I did … eventually.

Pics of the new desk area.

Shopping for the perfect desk naturally meant I had to visit every furniture shop in my landmarks folder, hunt down the ones that had moved, and look for new ones “just in case”.  At last I settled on this desk from Idea Home Center, along with the laptop to go with it. The lamp is from Exact (I picked it up looking for a desk). The chair is a dining chair from CORN Furniture. It was originally red but I changed the texture tint to blue to balance all the warm tones in that corner.

The screen is from Xylo’s. I had others but I liked this one better.

The picture is far to big for the bureau and I like the energy of it. Don’t ask me why 🙂

The blackboard was adorable but it just didn’t go with my furnishings. Besides, taking it out gave me 5 extra prims and this waterfall from Idea Home Center is only 3. Yes the prim count was really that close.

Finally, I’m pretty sure this chaise from CQ Design Furniture was my first purchase on my desk hunt. I wasn’t looking for seating and at 18 prims I certainly didn’t need it but how could I resist? It’s a throne Swirley could love. 😉

A new loft- insanely photo heavy

February 5, 2009 § 2 Comments

I’ve been bored with the last skybox we had for a little while but I was afraid Tanya would kill me for changing it again so soon. Turns out I was wrong so I went on a happy decorating spree. The loft itself was made by Noam Sprocket of Gritty Kitty and was only $300L. I loved the colors and textures so I picked it up as soon as I saw it and had been itching to pull it out.

At 42 prims it was almost 3 times “heavier” than my normal range but I was just going to to have to be minimalist with the furniture.

These are the first decorating attempt I made using only pieces I already had in my inventory. Barnesworth Anubis had a house tour recently where at every stop you were given a free piece of decor. In this pic the green chair and the pussywillow vase are his.

The gorgeous Arts & Crafts armoire and dresser were made by James Lindon. They’re very primmy (20 & 16 respectively) but I couldn’t resist finally being able to use them.

The swirly texture and blackboard bump-out are part of the loft.

I thought the space could use a smaller, more intimate conversation area that still didn’t block off the rest of the space.  The rug and lounge were two more of my Barnesworth goodies.

Basically I’m including this pic because I like the angle 😉 Also, you get a good look at the Tiered Organic Coffee Table (Barnesworth) and the ~Faboo~Candles.

One more to give an overall view. Next post to have the redone pics.

The new loft

I finally got bored with the new york loft Tanya and I have been living in and started looking for something a little more summery. I finally found my balance of craftmanship and low primage in a Barnesworth dollarbie of all things.

Traks

October 5, 2007 § 1 Comment

Today’s furniture store is new place called Traks. What caught my attention (besides the basic quality) is the fact that the furniture is textured in both traditional and alternative options.

And while the his and her smoking club wing chairs are pure sophistication,

I just know there are plenty of fashionistas who will prefer this version.

Dizzy Designs

A new one for me. Art! I was wandering around and found Dizzy Designs where Dizzy Sparrow sells sl versions of her amazing rl photos. They’re $400L, no-copy/no-mod. Check her 1rst life tab for her Flickr accounts.

My personal pick of the day was “Prayer Flags.” I love the colors and the layering. I wonder if Dizzy sells RL prints?
