The Trompe Loeil Fisher Point Cottage

I really loved this cottage when I saw it at a recent event. I have to admit that I don’t really need a new cottage or house, but Trompe Loeil makes such beautiful things that I couldn’t resist. And I think that one of the best ways to build a home design “wardrobe” in Second Life is to check out events where items are often going to be sold more cheaply anyway.

In the background is a pool feature (also from Trompe Loeil) that I will talk about another time.

I don’t think that an interior design has to be cramped. Put into your home what you want it to have. The “theme” for this was a vacation home, or summer cabin, so I tried to keep it simple.

All of the interior items are from my inventory, things that I have picked up over the years at events and sales. This was created to be used, primarily as a set for some photography. I need to take those photos, I guess. But, regardless, this house wasn’t created to be functional, even by Second Life terms, it was made to just look pretty.

Many of the decorating items were gifts from events or gacha items that I picked up just to use for decorating purposes. That Soy. table with drawers item is really versatile. I’ve used it to decorate bedrooms and living rooms, and it adds a nice, lived in, touch to a room.

I don’t think that there’s a wrong way to accessorize your home. Just pick pieces that resonate with you and point to the style that you want to portray, or that you think best speaks of who you are. This makes your SL house into a home, rather than just a showcase. I like an eclectic style, but with a classic underpinning.

I just adore this MishMish path. I blogged about it before, but I think that it is one of my single best outdoor design purchases. It adds a nice bit of color, and it contrasts well with darker items as well.
