The Yoga Room

 

Zoey and I picked out the new Scarlet Creative house from Collabor88 called The Emily. The new house was rezed and we set about decorating. Second Life house decorating has a completely different set of adventures to it than real life house decorating, only because everything is aesthetic rather than practical. We have a couple of “dead rooms” in the house, because they don’t really serve a practical purpose. I decided, for now, to turn one of those rooms in a yoga room. I’ll probably use it for photography in the long run.

Many of the objects for the room are ones that I purchased at Collabor88 a few months ago, when they had a gym/workout theme.

The yoga mats are from unKindness and are color/pattern change. The wall pallet and shelves are from Kalopsia, called Kali’s Shelf. The gym locker sideboard is from Second Spaces (one of my favorite places on the grid to get knick knacks and decorative items).

The candles and incense burner are also from unKindness, as are the “Spiritual Gangster” and “Your Vibe Attracts Your Tribe” signs. They were all part of their Yoga Studio Set fatpack. If you want to build a Second Life yoga studio, or just a relaxing space like this, I really recommend grabbing this whole pack.

The loose hand weights, and the yoga ball are from Kalopsia, from the Kali’s Yoga Accessories pack. The wall tapestry is something that I have had for a while, and I don’t remember where I got it, but it is one of those “base items” that I think are good to collect. When you’re at events, or stores, little random items can really add life to a room, and give it character. I like to buy these things for when I have a project like this, because it give the room a more comfy and lived in feel.

If you haven’t seen the Emily house from Scarlet Creative, it is a gorgeous piece of work. I really love the things that they do there.

This is all until next time. I will try really hard to update this more often.

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. Continue reading “The Trompe Loeil Fisher Point Cottage”
