Speaking of art, Marnix Malifozik sent me a sample of his work from his gallery Swirly Disco Flames - which  may be the best gallery name ever. In Marnix's words,

We can talk about fractals, we can talk about mathematical transformations and graphical representations of numericals sequences. Or we can just talk about Swirly Disco Flames.

This is fun stuff - modern, abstract, and well, just cool to look at. Marnix also accepts requests for custom work, and I think a personalized piece would be great for any modern decor.

Speaking of modern decor - my friend Amaliscious Destiny sent me a promo pic of her newest set at La'Licious Designs - the Tintable Kitchen! Nice clean lines, great detailing on the island, and of course, it's tintable, so you can make it work with your color scheme!

Speaking of colors, let's talk about ORANGE Creations. Nut Barak, the designer behind ORANGE, sent me a copy of the Eclipse Loft, and Oh. My. Goodness. Nut puts a lot of focus on shadows and light in his textures, and the result is realistically amazing. I love the impact that baked textures can have on the feel of a building or decor in SL, and the Eclipse is just right.

Look closely at the metal columns in the middle pic, above - they seem to be reflecting the orange  of the cushions. THAT, my friends, is awesome detail in texturing.

The Eclipse includes 3 different floor textures, tons of animations in the built-in seating, as well as in the furniture pieces (which are included), and also a rezzing system built into the house that will rez and place the furniture for you.That's really handy for making sure your shadows and lighting line up between the furniture and the house.

Nut has a few other prefabs available, all just as well-detailed, and definitely worth a look. Go see all he has to offer here!
