I wanted to get one more post in before I drift off for a few days for multiple RL holiday celebrations. I'm a big fan of rooms that are drenched in whites and creams - so peaceful, so simple, and so cozy when done right. The two anchor pieces to this room are perfect for a cozy winter scheme -- the bed is from my music soulmate Tegan Serin of floorplan. and the comfy couch is from my pal Gala Charron of *Art Dummy!. Perfect items to encourage long winter naps filled with peaceful dreams. ♥

Happiest holidays to everyone!!

It's a new(ish) month and that means new cycles for all of our favorite events. The Garden is actually just about to close its October round, so make sure you get over there, like, today! Collabor88 and FaMESHed have started their new rotations and there are some gorgeous things for your space at both events. Of course.

At C88 this month, Kaz Nayar of [PILOT] has a gorgeous new bedroom set. This bed has a great tufted leather headboard - it's masculine, but not macho, so it really works for anyone. I love the bedding, too - just the right amount of crumple with the bedspread, and the sheets are tintable so you can customize it a bit. And honestly, my favorite piece of the set is that storage basket you see under the bench. It's so cute and has just the perfect slouchiness to it. Well done!

There's a whole lot more to see from both events, and I'mma work on that, but in the meantime get over there and see for yourself!

More lodge awesomeness from this month's The Garden. All the designers have done an amazing job, and I'll get as many on the blog as I can, but don't wait for me! I'm slow. Go to The Garden and see for yourself. HAVE I EVER STEERED YOU WRONG? 

The sleigh bed is part of the new set from Alixxbella Resident and .encore.  There are a few different color varieties - for both the wood and the bedding - and who doesn't love a sleigh bed?? The wood texture is super homey ('super homey' sounds like a superhero from the 90s) and the bedding is nice and cozy.

That rustically modern fireplace is part of the new set from Rayvn Hynes and Mudhoney, also available at The Garden. I really love the mix of the brick and woods, and it's a really nice proportion for a casual fireplace...you know, versus something really grand that only feels right in a very formal room. This one would fit wonderfully in your living room, family room, bedroom, kitchen...versatile! All the decor on the mantel is included, too, so it's also easy! 

See this stuff and then more stuff at The Garden! [SLurl

 Wizarding Faire 2013 is running until October 20th and it is a must-see. The event set-up is modeled after Diagon Alley from the Harry Potter series, and it is precious! You must go and walk along the winding road and gaze into all the shop windows...and, oh yeah, there are some awesome wizarding supplies for you to buy, too. Bring your own galleons.

Of course, Collabor88 is up and running right now for the October round, and the color scheme used this month means that a lot of C88 stuff meshes really well with a lot of Wizarding Faire stuff, and that means hell yeah! The big pieces above are a mish-mash of the two events: that gorgeous bed is Cheeky Pea's contribution to the Wizarding Faire..the dressers are part of Trompe Loeil's set available at C88...and the throne chair is also part of C88, from floorplan. Nice.

The amazing book stacks are from Lark at the Wizarding Faire and are available to rez and also to wear, which makes for some great photo ops. The jars and the cauldron of books are also at the Faire, and are part of the wonderfully detailed items available from Consignment.

Go see it all!

It's almost the end of the month, which means that events are wrapping up! FaMESHed will switch to the new round on Oct 1, and The Arcade will close on Sept 30 and won't be back until December. SO THIS IS YOUR LAST CHANCE FOR MANY THINGS. [insert dramatic music] 

At this month's FaMESHed, you can check out the Baybrooke bedroom from Cory Edo and Trompe Loeil, and I highly recommend that you do.  The cabinet, bookshelf, and side table in the pic above are pieces from that set - I love the detail on the bookshelf so much. ♥ And, as illustrated in that pic, the set is definitely not limited to use in the bedroom (except maybe for the actual beds, but hey, you decorate however makes you happy) but everything else is really versatile and would look great in any room.

Speaking of looking great: all those colorful books are from my pal Sienia Trevellion and Lark, and are available right now at The Arcade (run!). The books are part of the Imaginarium Librarium set and they're whimsical and gorgeous and amazing.

As previously mentioned, the September round of The Arcade is open -- and there are wonders to behold. So...many....wonders... 

One of my favorite sets, and the machine that's gotten most of my money, is from Julliette Westerburg and Tres Blah. It's the Bon Voyage set, and it's perfection. 

blog 1.jpg

There's more to it, of course, but those are some of my favorite pieces above. And that camera -- you can't tell me that doesn't look 100% real! Amazing! And a wonder!!

blog 2.jpg

Speaking of precious wonders, that darling record player is from my music soul mate, Tegan Serin of floorplan. She's got those lovelies available at The Arcade in  just a ton of colors and textures. WONDERS TO BEHOLD.

Do you realize how many awesome events are STILL going on? We've had so many so far, it's really easy to lose track. But trust me - there are still LOTS of events that you need to check out.

The pic above is made up of pretty much all items that are currently available at special events, or were available at special events very recently. The lesson here? GO TO ALL THE EVENTS.

I love this bed from Isla Gealach and Cheeky Pea - part of the Abbotsford Bedroom set currently available at The Garden - and those chairs!!! Those are the Deconstructed Armchairs, also from Cheeky Pea, available right now at The Home Show. There's a whole deconstructed set that is amazing and you must check it out. You.

I love Cory's bedrooms. ♥

That's the new Cobble Hill Bedroom set from Cory Edo and Trompe Loeil, available at the June round of FaMESHed. I love the classic lines of the bed, and the texture options on the headboard/footboard and all the bedding are great for dressing it up.

I'm pretty sure that's the shortest descriptive paragraph I've ever written. Bottom line, this is just one more in a slew - SLEW - of gorgeous bedrooms from Cory. You need them all. Make it happen.

I love committing to a theme. This room is a mash-up of two sets available now at FaMESHed: you've got a super cute bedroom from Tegan Serin and floorplan., and then there's a  classic office from fri.home, which is a collaboration between Tegan and Darling Monday of fri.day. You know what I love best about their collaboration -- aside from the awesome furniture? The fact that floorplan. stuff and fri.home stuff goes so well together - it's like a megastore that just happens to be split between two locations. Or some other analogy that is more profound. Your choice.

I desperately want a shabby old card catalog in RL. 3-d printer, anyone?

I love the books-as-headboard idea - from a distance, it looks sorta artsy and geometric, and it's only up close that you realize 'oh hey - books!". I like that. And I predict that little book on the nightstand, the one with the pages formed into a heart, is going to become one of my favorite decorating accents. Love.

Froukje Hoorenbeek of Dutchie has won my heart once again with her latest release, the Gustavian Bedroom. ♥ The shabby wood textures are just perfect - so shabby! - and the little details and accessories are gorgeous. All the wood pieces are color-changeable, as well, so you get lots of choices of shabby finish. I went with the white wood because I just lovelovelove the vintage feel of it.

The Tiffany Bedroom Set is new from PILOT and Kaz Nayar, available now at this month's Collabor88. I love that bed - gorgeous bedding, lovely curves on the headboard, and a ruffly bedskirt! I love a ruffly bedskirt!

The vase of lilacs is just beautiful. As much as I love the whole set, I really think those lilacs are my favorite piece. Perfect! ♥

Speaking of perfect, I'm also crazy about this Jar Chandelier from Cory Edo and Trompe Loeil, also available at Collabor88. Rustic! Pulleys! Rustic pulleys!! That would be a great band name!

All this awesome stuff is set up inside more awesomeness - the new prefab from Barnesworth Anubis (oddly enough, also available at Collabor88) -- the Haight Apartment Skybox!

Two nice large rooms, both with wonderfully soaring bay windows, AND a cute little bathroom off the back. I also love those french doors! ♥

Pick up this amazing stuff at this month's Collabor88!!  [SLurl]

I'd like to think that some day we'll have the technology to allow us to physically enter virtual worlds somehow. When that day comes, I would like to make this my bedroom. COME ON, SCIENCE.

This is the Gramercy Bedroom Suite from Cory Edo and Trompe Loeil, now available at this month's FaMESHed. I have always been a huge fan of sleigh beds, and Cory has done an amazing job with the graceful curves on this one. There are lots and lots of texture options for the bedding, too, and the set includes 2 styles of side tables, psychedelic lighting, that awesome steamer trunk, and some of my favorite wall art that's been released recently.  Love all around.

My music soul mate (MSM) - Tegan Serin of floorplan. - rocks my world. End of story.

Okay, not the end, but still a very important point. This is her newest bedroom set, the Anna Bedroom, available at this month's FaMESHed event. You guys know how I love wood (heh) and I have equal love for anything faux bois, so that bedspread is perfection as far as I'm concerned. And as much as I love that bed overall, my absolute favorite piece of this set is the "wall paper", those lovely loose sheets of paper. ♥ Clearly they were intended as wall accents (oh, and the item is just 1 prim for, like, 20 pieces of paper) but I love putting them everywhere. EVERYWHERE. I love clutter and this could be the clutter to end all clutter. CUTER CLUTTER.

I (clearly) took a bit of a blogging break over the holidays. So now I'm looking at my "to do" folder to figure out where I go from here, and something occurred to me: I have not been giving floorplan. the attention it deserves. Designer Tegan Serin is, of course, my music soul mate, and she's gotten plenty of love from me on this blog in the past...BUT I'm looking at all the things she's released in the past month or 2 -- and that's been a lot -- and I realize how much she is getting better and better with each new item. Well done, MSM! ♥

I love that Tegan's designs are fairly simple, but still with a twist of whimsy. I also love the color palettes she uses -- her brighter pastels are like candy. Who doesn't love candy?

I love both chairs so hard. The moon shaped chair/chaise is named Chair de Lune. CLEVER. ♥

It's a new month of FaMESHed. It's a new fantastic bed from Trompe Loeil. Let's do this.

This month, Cory Edo brings us the Cabinet Bed - Morning Light Fabrics. I would like to crawl in here, close the shutters, and sleep until Christmas. ♥

There are several fabric options to choose from, so you can mix and match all sorts of ways with the bedding and pillows. The cute little windows on the sides have shutters that open and close, too.

There's a PG version and an Adult version for...you know. It's all mesh, and only 19 prim/land impact. Goodness, that's awesome. As is this bed. As would be a nap in this bed right now. RIGHT NOW.

Swing by FaMESHed to check it out and pick it up! [SLurl]

Ooohhhh new stuff from Froukje Hoorenbeek and Dutchie!! Froukje continues to rock the mesh like whoa - I'm always so excited to see what she comes out with! Right now we have the Teak Canopy Bed set:

*additional credits at end of post

I have always been, and always will be, a sucker for a canopy bed. ♥ The Teak Canopy Bed comes with lots of color options for the comforter, as well as a few different wood options for the frame. It ALSO comes in 3 different versions: PG, Adult, and Bondage. OH MY. I'm too timid to try out the bondage version for blog pics, but don't let that stop you! (And you know who you are.)

That vanity is perfect. I love the classic styling, and I absolutely adore all the little cosmetics and whatnot that Froukje included in there. The whole set is awesome - really great textures and wonderful shading baked right in. Definitely a must-see!

Go see the whole set at Dutchie! [SLurl]
