How Low Can You Go! (oops My Bad)

Julia clean useGreat timing as I had just been to Creative Decay to snag all the Group Gifts, freebies and cheapos when Evhalyn Serpente sent out a group notice asking for someone to blog her latest creation from Creative Decay, so knowing the quality of her builds I quickly responded and she sent me this.  The home is called  Lofted Solitude and has been specifically designed to not only sit on a plot of 512 plot (or bigger) but with so much designing and yet so few prims! a total of 23 prims  means that those on a restricted prim allowance can not only have a stylish home but also free up a lot more prims to decorate.

Julia Clean1The use of split levels, slotted partitions, built-in shelving, glass wall and cutouts has made this a very detailed home and again all of this for 23Prims even a door to a patio area.  This is intended for land, nothing to stop you placing it in the sky of course, and the outside of the home is also detailed to look less box like.Julia Clean11The neutral colours of grey/beige etc allow you to splash the colour about.  The 2 hanging chairs in the background come with the home but they are extra prims but pretty good AOs so if you can spare the prims you will love them.  I do like my photos but I have to say I don’t think I’m showing how big this home really looks inworld so trust me it’s wide and long and a very generous size. Comes in a very hand Rez box which is easy to use.

Not only must you check out her inworld shop because she has some great group gifts, some freebies and some cheapies but also the demo area which I remember so well because Faith and I spent quite a while there not long ago looking at all of her homes and we both loved so many of them we couldn’t make up our minds which one we liked most and ended up buying nothing as weird as that sounds.  Lovely low primmed, well textured, modern but not harsh homes.

Non Clean1This is one of the Group Gifts I’ve managed to unpack (joining the group NOT  free, it is 99Lds) and it suits it’s name Darth. Big and scary and yet something which is begging to be created into a home.

Snapshot_014I’m stood about a third of the way in when I took this photo and I’ve placed a chair so you can get some sort of perspective. The 2 line are the door to the final room which is glassed and a click on the class will make it either trans or opaque.  The only other home I managed to unpack was the 20Lds crime scene home.  Lots of room, space, dingy, dirty and  a great prop for RPing.

I can also see that Creative Decay have sign boards up for the Him and Her Hunt which starts on the 16th and 2 lucky boards, can’t get much better than that.

TreeAnd finally something a bit different.  I was rummaging in my invent for items to furnish the Lofted Solitude home and came across this from one of my Fav shops, End of Daze.  They not only do great retro, modern clean well textured  furnishings and accessories  but they have a whole selection of wall decals of which this is one.  I’ve slapped it on a bare bit of wall and what a lovely wall filler for only a prim it is.  Big with muted colours it looks almost 3D.

SORRY I made a mistake because it turns out that it is 99Lds to join Creative Designs.  Honestly if you can spare it then the freebies and discount you can get are worth it BUT the Mini VIP IS a Freebie for all (Phew my ass is saved).

Kiss My A:S:S

New Group Gift from A:S:S and I love it’s cream and soft teal colouring.  Retro cool  and BIG. It is partitioned so if you wanted to set out a typical layout ie kitchen, bedroom, living area then it’s perfect but of course it would also make a great looking shop if that’s what your after.  The ornamental pool in the centre is a lovely feature.  50Prims in total.

Round1

Some people may think this is more shop like than sky home and I say “your wrong” it’s both and I think this is so Unisexed as well.

ASSESI took the first photo is normal midday setting and the second in sunset just to show you that even without the use of Windlight you can get a lot of atmosphere into your home/shop.  You can also see that you get plently of windows to be able to look out of.

OK the nitty gritty (old English expression) is it’s FREE but only to group members and thats not free but I have recieved so much stuff from group gifts that the initial cost has been more than repaid.  If you don’t want to join the group still check out not only their great clothes/jewelry but their great skyhomes.  Very reasonably priced and all as great a quality as this one. TP to the demo area once you’ve checked out A:S:S’s great clothes, jewelry and make up first.

eoDJust as I was doing the write up for the A:S:S skybox I recieved this off  Ice (Icewood.Bayn) who owns EoD (End Of Daze).  I was planning to set out a load of EoD furniture so you could see how perfectly it looks and then I thought “Meh” and just left it as it is.  In a way I think what you see shows off how big this skyhome is.  It’s texturing and colouring is a perfect match not only for your EoD items but anything you wish to use.  All items shown are from EoD and if it’s been a while since you’ve been there it’s a newer bigger and better shop for showing off the goodies and a new Landmark to match.

EoD1Again just like the first skyhome the first picture is taken in normal SL midday and the second either sunset or sunrise (sorry can’t remember which) and how warm and lovely does it look.  This is take from the other side of the room so you can see the picture windows with a city view.  Some lovely little details such a sockets and beams and a low 22Prims!

Easy Peasy OOPS Corrected the LM!!

Clean1

Have to confess that I’ve had this furniture for quite a while and I’ve not had anywhere to put it until I picked up an excellent low prim and FREE skyhome.  As soon as I rezzed the Seorn Appartment  from The Designer Warehouse I knew I’d found the perfect setting for my EoD furniture.

Clean11This is unashamedly  men’s  furnishings from the beige retro look to the manly poses in the furniture but that to me doesn’t put me off.  I like its clean cut look and it’s retro style. Normally I like to pose next to furnishing to give some sort of size indicator but this furniture is definitely over sized and that is deliberate.  These pieces are big and bold but not the ugly badly lazy over sized stuff that you can pick up for a few lindens.

Clean111

Hopefully you can see though that this desk is not over sized.  I have a slightly smaller than average AV and I don’t think I look dwarfed by the desk at all.    This is statement furniture dare I say Lazy Mans furniture because it took me 5 mins to rezz and arrange and I had a fully furnished stylish living room so even if you don’t think you have the time or the vision to make a place look great just get it from EoD.

Clean Piano

Comparison shot. Normally I would never compare the quality of one item against another but since the shop where I got the piano on the left from has long gone from SL I feel ok to do it this time.  The left hand one was state of the art, expensive and top class but compare it to the modern-day version from E0D and guess which one got binned.

Snapshot_013

If you were lucky enough to get yourself the amazing Billiard/Snooker table then this the same great quality. Plus you don’t just get this you get a brown version as well and both come with lid up or lid down options.  The books, wine etc decorations are included but you can remove them if you want and I wish I had because you can get a great stet of candlesticks from EoD as well which would also look great. Menu inc 10 sitting, 3 activities, 14 couple and 12 adult poses.

Don’t panic because EoD is in the Four Walls Hunt and still has The Great Outdoor Hunt item out (your looking for a tree in a box and a tree stump) and I know since I have both items they’re worth the few lindens they cost.

Snapshot_015

A free home for all.  Picked this up at The Designer Warehouse for nowt, nothing, nada I also picked up some great stuff so even if your not after a new home still get yourself over there slap the Free Group Board and start collecting because they have a lot of free treats out for us. This home which as you can see has a large picture window also has 2 skylight windows and great texturing/lighting  and it’s only 4 PRIMS! I had to check that a couple of times because how low primmed is that! and totally mesh.  So pop over grab the freebies but make note of the great designer offers which are on and when PayDay comes you can go back and treat yourself yet again.

The Designer Warehouse.

Big Fat OOPS because I gave out my home LM instead of The Designer Warehouse one.  Thats what happens when you post after struggling through a cold.  I hope those who TPed to my home didn’t panic.   I actually keep my home open for anyone to wander through so I wouldn’t have minded but then again I did post the wrong LM.  SO get yourself to the right one now and again make sure you join the group and grab those goodies.
