I decorated my friend Ulrich Renoir's place several months ago, and am just now getting around to blogging it. Truth be known, there's still more I'd like to do with it, especially landscaping around the patio and hot tub, and maybe Ulrich and I will venture into that someday in the future. Regardless, the place still looks great, and I hope Ulrich is enjoying it. (Ulrich is easily distracted ;) and has been occupying his SL time with setting up his own rental properties - they look great, too, and there's been mention of me landscaping those properties. In the meantime, check Ulrich's profile Picks tab in-world if you're looking for a cute rental house!)


The house is another great prefab from Barnesworth Anubis. The villa style doesn't necessarily 'go with' the alpine hillside, but who cares. It's a cool house. :)

We'll start with the entry. The bookshelf is from the Loft3 -- one of my favorites, of course. The planter in the corner was made by me, and I filled it with some gorgeous lillies from Heart Garden Centre -- another one of my favorites. The Rocky poster was Ulrich's, and the one item that he insisted remain in the house. No objections from me - I love Rocky! - so I made it a focal point. The Alabama posters are more creations of mine -- Ulrich is an Alabama boy. :) The rug is from Del Sol, an awesome shopping experience, and one that I should highlight soon. As you come through the front door and turn to your left, you see the awesome spiral staircase, and we set up a basic entrance. If Ulrich received SL mail, I imagine he'd place it on this table.

We kept the living room simple with a basic, tailored set from Ramos Designs. Ulrich had previously procured the candles and placed them in the fireplace, for which he received 10 decorating points. :) The rug is from Van's Home & Garden, and the mirror is from The Old Curiosity Shop. The Monkees poster is another surprise creation/gift from me to Ulrich. We both <3 the Monkees.

At the top of the stairs, we have a small seating area. The chaise is another piece from the Ramos Designs living room set, and the dresser goes with the bedroom set, which is also from The Loft3. Both pieces of wall art are from The Loft3, as well. The rug is from Del Sol.

Finally, we have what Ulrich deemed the Love Nook. I'm not sure if capitalization is appropriate, but I'll give him the benefit of the doubt. :) The seating is from Neva Naughty (heh heh), the white rug and the candles are from Ramos Designs. The pictures in the corner are more creations of mine, just for Ulrich's house.

Check out these designers in SL:

Just a few more shots of Yam's house to round out my flurry of blog posting (twice in 2 days = flurry). I adore the little 'study' area we set up:


Here are just a few shots of the landscaping:



And finally, here's where I got the stuff! (For this post and the previous)

Bar & Bar seating area: Del Sol Marketplace

Main Living Area: Comfy Connections

Interior/exterior plants: Heart Garden Centre

Desk: Another Man's Treasure

Outdoor chaises: Classic Creations by Isabella

Nautical items and tsotschkes: I can no longer locate the shop where I bought these; the creator is Paddy Wright, and his stuff is amazing!

I welcome any comments/feedback on this design job. Yam was very happy with the results :) which made me very happy.

Ok - I suck at blogging. No sense in mincing words -- I suck. Eh. Having said that -- I'm gonna post something today. :) I completed my first official decorating job about 2 months ago -- and did a pretty friggin' awesome job, if you ask me. (Ask me!) My neighbor, Yamtx Wijaya, gave me the great opportunity to decorate the first floor of his self-built lighthouse, and also to landscape the yard. He wanted a nautical theme, and that's what we did - I think we came out with a definite masculine feel, without going completely Barnacle Bill. I don't have any 'before' pics, since I started with just a large empty room. Here's the 'after':

This first shot is from the corner by the front door; you can sort of see the entire layout from here.
Here's a shot of the living area alone, and a closeup of the curio cabinet in the corner.

I also created a second sitting area by the bar, and partitioned it off from the main entrance with a large display of plants:

More to come soon on this job -- including designer names and SLurls...since I never think to capture those while I'm in-game and it only occurs to me at this point when I need them for insertion. Dammit.

Heh heh...I said 'insertion'.
