The Home and Garden thread

Recommended Posts

Ari and I thought it was silly that we were living in separate places on our land..so my sis and I splurged on this mansion that we've always talked about living in. Merry Christmas to us!

Once the Christmas decorations were down, I had a few prims to play with so I switched up my reading corner from the old fashioned desk and straight back chair to a cool chair I picked up on FLF and a glowy plant from the MP and a little prim side table I threw together. Then the crazy cat lady in me spotted another kitty treasure while strolling thru the MP that matched my lounger.

I don't know how those amazing furniture and decor bloggers do what they do. Those kinds of set-ups always leave me drained. This one especially so cause my alt had some of the items and I kept forgetting to set them where anyone can move them. So I had the shot lined up with one alt and was logging in and out Clover and the other alt LOL.

Her Boudoir

Almost all of the furniture is from Oubliette's gacha currently at GachaLand. I named creators but not specific items for the other stuff on my blog, but if you want to know about something just ask! The animals are Jian and MishMish. It took 15 tries between getting the windlight and the animals to cooperate.

My neighbour left and nice view opened to the west towards sunset from my second floor room.
Time to make the window bigger.  (/me makes a happy dance!) 😃

I made some changes in my summer house. 2nd floor room was changed and new balcony made next to it.
The house is made totally with convex hull prims only. Those work well with this kind kind of "box" house and it's very easy and quick to change how it looks. The furniture is mostly very low LI mesh. The parcel is only 512 m² with 157 LI capacity. The house footprint is also 512 m². Surprisingly much can be made in small parcel when carefully selecting very low LI items.

View towards west in 2nd floor room. In front of the window stairs go downstairs, on the right stairs go upstairs to swimming pool area.

Not a home, but me texturing and editing a build from Anna Er0tica.

I was thinking, if I edit and sell some pictures in SL, I need a store. I have already paid a year membership for 2 avatars so why not use the land. I didn't like the store "as is" but that's not a problem as long as the build is cheap, low LI and mod.

 

My avatar is tiny and between 2 builds. The smallest is really big enough.

For some reason, inside walls and floors were set to alpha masking, even if there were no reason.

Original inside, first attempt, last one. I like the simpler walls since the ones with openings were too "busy" for me.

I like playing around with Anna's builds.. they are affordable and easy enough to modify. Sadly some mesh parts of teh really big skyscrapers collapse from afar. So you more or less must tinker with them

Picked up this small witches cabin from MP,

Has a LI of 6 and cost under 100L$

Interior is only a single room, but I've managed to make it cosy

Cabin fits in more with the forest theme my parcel has.

Our floating island with 'secret' sister hideout. Our friends have all been here, so it's not a secret anymore lol.

This is a brilliant idea. I love it. Where is the island from? I might do that instead of a plain skybox.

Yeah, this is above our land. We wanted a few places to hang that had a little more fps. It's called  TDE ~ Floating island w/cave. The Domineaux Effect.

Wait...didn't I just see you sitting on a dock at the shore?  Is this your "home away from home?"

I had to reduce my tier so I moved to a small island. Decorating is almost done. Also it took me few days to discover an unusual neighbor living on the island next to mine.

Forrest recieved an increse in her Region Bonus Object factor from 1.10 to 1.20. So I now have 1500prims to play with, instead of just 1375prims.

Which means

This is floating above our land! Good eye :) We wanted to have a lower lag area and just because who doesn't want a hideout floating in the sky?

Her Peacock Retreat

Towards the end of this shoot I accidentally deleted the house, whoops!

I was playing with DoF and camera angles in Black Dragon too. A little distorted, but it's interesting to me.

We recently moved to a Lord of the Rings Elven RP sim focused on the first 7 Chapters of the Silmarillion, so I've been getting our Elven manor decorated. Since we're high status elves with wealth and respect I've gone for a very high quality finish.

Me standing out front.  I added curtains to the house to give it a more homely feel.
