Sweet Love

Your heart has called me closer to you
I will be all that you need
Just trust in what we’re feeling
Never leave, ’cause baby, I believe
In this love

Anita Baker – Sweet Love

Flâneur

The French have the perfect word for it: ‘Flâneur’. It means to stroll around aimlessly but enjoyably, observing life and your surroundings. Baudelaire defined a flaneur as ‘a person who walks the city in order to experience it’.

Gemma Burgess

Lookie! GOOSE made their first living room set! The Crupet Living Room Set (PG/Adult) is a full living room set with couches (containing animations and texture changing options), coffee table, shelves, plant and wall art and the set is available at Cosmopolitan for a few more days. Buy the full set or separate pieces.

DaD has made the most fun lamps, “The Time is Pipe Collection” is available at this round of The Ephiphany. Touching the lamps gives you a menu for the lights; on/off, intensity, colour and access. I have chosen to use four lamps that fit my living room, but there are actually 10 different lamps in the collection so make sure you take a look here for the full gacha key.

Loft Living

The NoHo Loft/Skybox by DaD is a modern grunge industrial inspired loft that maximizes space by utilizing the open floor concept, with large windows that provides natural lighting and built-in storage under the stairs leading to the mezzanine level. This is also Woofer’s favourite hideout. Aesthetically pleasing design with features like steel piping throughout and wood beams that gives comfort and ease style of living within a small footprint (28.2×17.5 resizable). It’s Land Impact is 103. The NoHo Loft is available at this round of FaMESHed.

Complementing the loft, DaD also just released the NoHo Living Set. The set includes a sofa with plush cushions in a soft black color encased by distressed wood adorned with steel piping. The table is a match piece with the top made from the same worn distressed wood and steel piping legs. Two textured rugs completes the entire set to give you comfort, warmth and a style that never goes out of fashion. The NoHo Living Set PG and Adult versions are available right now at Anthem!

And since we’re decorating an industrial loft, why not use the GOOSE Industrial Caged Lamps Set? The set consists of a hanging lamp, a standing lamp and a table lamp, with metal and wood details. Turns on/off by Touch. Copy/Modify. The lamps are available at the GOOSE mainstore and marketplace.

The Blue Hour

Twilight Hour. Indian blue, water of glass, trees glistening and liquescent.

Henry Miller

My last post this year and I’m dedicating it to a natural phenomenon which is called The Blue Hour. Where I live, we experience this light, during the Polar Night, in the middle of the day when the sun is at its highest yet still below the horizon. It’s magical and no picture can do it justice.

Contemporary casual comfort is what you get with the Nolan Living Set by DaD. The set consists of a sofa, armchair and pouf and you’ll find plenty of single-, friends- and couples (PG and Adult) animations in either. Customize the look with the texture changer HUD.

Outside the big glass windows of the DaD Glass House, you can see a new release by Little Branch; the Forest Pansy Tree. It’s a beautiful addition to your garden or sim, lightly animated as if swaying to a gentle breeze and it has a season changing menu upon Touch. I will give you a closer look of it in another blog post because I already have a great idea for a picture.

You can find both the DaD Nolan Living Set and the Little Branch Forest Pansy Tree at this round of Uber.

I’d like to give a warm welcome and a huge thank you to my newest H&G sponsor, Refuge. The first time I saw the Spark Lamps, which is a previous release, I thought they looked absolutely amazing and I wanted to show them to you too in case you missed them earlier. They come in different sizes and with three choices of metal, you can even choose with or without the shimmer effect. As a center light I’ve used the Cosmo Lighting, also by Refuge; it comes in gold or silver and the light strings has the same animated shimmer effect it looks beautiful. You can find the lamps at the Refuge mainstore!

The Executive

Contemporary, elegant and minimalistic is how I would describe the Executive, a new living room set by Aphrodite Shop/Heart Homes that is out now at the Man Cave event. The couch comes with single and couple bento animations (PG and Adult version). The set includes the couch, coffee table, table decor, rug, wall art, two decorative shelves and a chandelier.

I’ve also included the Raleigh set by Barley Home & Decor, to give my living room a touch of Christmas, without going overboard. I also wanted to mix a little bit of rustic feel into this modern space and the Raleigh Side Table and decor does just that. This set was at the most recent round of Belle and should soon be available in the Barley marketplace.
