Pride – Home and Garden Design 2019

Just be yourself
In every way you are
You don’t have to change

Anneli Drecker – You Don’t Have To Change

This will be my final blog post covering the SL Home & Garden Expo 2019 as it closes tomorrow. I can’t think of a better way than to finish with the PRIDE Collection by Gems of Topaz. The texture changer in the coffee table, chair and chaise allows you to pick and choose your colour from the rainbow as well as pattern on the pillows and blanket. Put more rainbow in your life and let’s all show more love and less hate and pride as opposed to shame going forward. The painting by Sisi Biedermann is named Time is running. Why spend any time spewing hate? Remember, no matter who you are;

  • Your gender is valid.
  • Your sexuality is valid.
  • You are valid.
  • Be PROUD of who you are.

Idyll – Home and Garden Design 2019

Det var solnedgang
Det var latter, det var sang
Det var sommerfri
Det var sjø og magi
Det var deg og det var meg
Det var minner som aldri vil dø
Det var evighet
Og en sol som farga himmelen rød

Postgirobygget – Idyll
We found idyll through EED’s All Aboard Island

Norwegian summers are short, especially in the north where I live. Some summers are not even warm! Makes it very easy to appreciate days like this, where you can stay outside all day and night and you know; when the sun is shining, it shines bright not just all day but all night too. Idyll to me is to be watching the midnight sun together with my beloved; on the shore, enjoying bonfire barbeque and ice cold beverages.

Get closer and stay close forever.

EED’s All Aboard Island is a group of rocks, palm trees, plants, a sitting area, bonfire, boat and birds on a sandy beach. It is a tropical idyll! You can find it and more oceanic themed creations from EED at the Home & Garden Expo which is open until April 7. Check out Mahogany’s blog post for more!

City Morning – Home and Garden Design 2019

Even I could enjoy city living if I had a loft like this! So, I finally got around to blogging the Vindustria living room set by Dictatorshop; where the table and the shelf both are new releases for the Home & Garden Expo. Vintage industrial looks really good in this brick building! For decor I mostly used the Aries set by Elm. which you can find at the Zodiac event, and some bits and pieces from my inventory. Both the expo and the Aries round of Zodiac are still going strong, but we’re entering the final week of the expo som make sure you pay it a visit because it’ll be a whole year until next round! The expo is open until April 7 while Zodiac closes this round on the 10th.

Meditation – Home and Garden Design 2019

Heart Mandala tapestry by LozMac and Adagio Indoor Water Fountain by HJM Designs

Need a peaceful place to quiet your mind and find your center? You can create this space in your own home and using only a few items. A comfortable pillow to sit on, incense, candles and an indoor water fountain to set the mood. The Mandala symbolizes the universe and looks really good when decorating your spiritual space. HJM Designs made the water fountain and LozMac made the mandala tapestry you see in this picture and you can find them both at the Home & Garden Expo which is open until April 7th.

Dreaming on a Cloud – Home and Garden Design 2019

There’s something for the children too at the SL Home & Garden Expo. Sonder is a store created for the imagination and vibrance of the children of SL. They specialize in home decor, trinkets, wearables, and more to enhance your SL childhood. Together with Sonder’s Blossoms Bed Set I used some of by Chiana Oh‘s creations and put everything inside the Pastel Dreamy Skybox by [QE] Designs, that are all to be found at the Expo.

Blossoms Bed Set by Sonder

I’ve never decorated a children’s room before and so I couldn’t find many props or toys in my inventory. With huge help from Mahogany (I don’t think she’s decorated SL children’s rooms before either, but she’s got an impressive inventory!) I was able to furnish this room. Big thanks to Sonder and by Chiana Oh for the furniture, [QE] Designs for the skybox and Mahogany’s inventory for props. Look, we all made this super cute children’s room!

Dream, Wish, Do – Home and Garden Design 2019

A creative workspace. Dog just wants the macarons.

Did you visit the Home & Garden Expo yet? I thought I’d move inside and show you some furniture and decor today, using the repurposed cable reel desk and chair by Elementals as my base item. I decorated it with office clutter decor, also by Elementals, but the desk does have a prop rezzer built into its animations. The Vindustria Chair by Dictatorshop is such an awesome looking piece and they have made a table and a shelf to go with the chair and sofa so now it’s a set! I did not have room to show it in this post, but I’ll make sure to do a post on those later. If you can’t wait for that you can hop on over to the Expo and take a look for yourself! Now… and I’m so stoked about this. The amazing prints on the right? moss&mink did those, for the ZODIAC event! It’s back guys and the line-up for this round, the Aries round, is impressive. Make sure to check it out as it opens today!

On the coast – Home and Garden Design 2019

~ASW~ The Blakely Bungalow

You’re probably thinking by now, that I must have a thing for the ocean. Well you’re right, I do. I grew up on a small island in a town where nearly every house has a 180° panoramic ocean view. When Mahogany and I saw this bungalow by Adorably Strange Wares at the Home & Garden Expo I just knew I had to blog it so we plonked it down right on top of the shore on Mahogany’s home parcel. I framed the facade using the Three Green Spring Trees from Thus Magic, and if I’d had more climbing rose bushes I would’ve used them because they look absolutely amazing. The Mixed Flower Boat Planter by HJM Designs looks good on the deck and the Paper Boat Candles, also from ASW, on the water. They are going to create a wonderful atmosphere wherever you decide to use them, I promise.

The bungalow has a centre courtyard

The Blakely Bungalow is a 2 bedroom 1bath, with center open courtyard and slider barn style doors. It has a 25×25 footprint and Li is 232. Exclusive now at The Home & Garden Expo RLF Charity!
