I received a review folder from Nephre Nefarious a few weeks ago, and with the Home Expo coming up, and of course now in progress :), I've just now had time to really check out The Higher Spectrum. Totally worth the wait! Nephre has a great shop setup, a very large inventory to look through, and great style to all her pieces. Overall, the feel of THS is quite masculine, which I like. Remember, fellas, like I always tell you: chicks dig a well-appointed pad. ;) Nephre's pieces are on the large end of the size scale, very modern, so these aren't things you're going to want to put in your quaint New England-style cottage. These items are great for the larger, minimalist-modern prefabs -- which Nephre also has available. :)
First, a few of the review items -- this is the Marcell Sofa, with the Brooklyn Living Room Coffee Table and Standing Lamp (on the right), and also the Floor Lamp2 on the left. I included myself in the pic because 1) I'm a camera hog and 2) I wanted to show the perspective, since these are really large pieces. The pillows on the sofa have great textures, and I really like the curve of the coffee table. There are many more pieces to the Brooklyn set - you'll have to go see them at the shop. ;)
Next is the Gaile Erotic Bed and the Brandi Bathroom Shower. Clearly, these pieces aren't meant to be together - I'm just saving on pic space. All of THS' beds are packed with anims -- for your couples time and your solitary time. :) The shower comes with a steamy (see what I did there?) couples animation, too. I really love the little shelves on the outside of the shower - nice touch!
At the THS shop, I found so many things that I wanted to share! I tried to limit myself...but dammit, these are the things that make my heart swell! So here are some pieces that I love:
Camille Living Room Set: this set is a little less masculine than most of what you'll find, but still isn't "girly", by any means. Great color scheme, and I love the coffee table. Simple and elegant!
Calli Living Room Coffee Table and Emilee TV Center: now these are masculine pieces. I love the table's mix of wood and stone; it's very well done. The TV Center is one of those staple pieces that anchors a room - the open-ended/backed shelves really keep this piece from feeling too heavy at the same time.
Slatted Swing Lounge and Rattan Beach Cuddle Bed: be sure to check out Nephre's outdoor pieces, too. I fell in love with these two pieces -- the Slatted Swing Lounge is the awesome, and the Cuddle Bed is just dreamy!
Pink Stainless Bed and Sculpted Lillies: back on the less masculine side again, this stainless bed is a great example of "grrr I'm tough...but not so tough you can't lounge on me!" The lillies are gorgeous! There are probably a dozen or more color options to choose from - these are not prim-friendly at 23 prims per set...but oh, what beautiful prims they are!
At The Higher Spectrum, you'll also find a great selection of rugs, vases, candles, frames, wall art, folding screens, lighting, and miscellaneous casegoods. The prices are very reasonable, and most items are quite average on prim count, which is always good. The beds are a little higher on the price scale - they really are packed with animations, though, and that combined with the quality makes them worth every Linden.
You know what to do now -- head over to THS and take your time checking it all out!
