Home Sweet Home Part 2

Home Sweet Home
At the beginning of May, I shared two outside photos of my SL home.  I intended to also share some interior photos, but I was never really thrilled with the furnishings.  Countless attempts later, I’m so happy with the end result and am ready to share. This home is really a departure for me.  I usually veer towards neutral and earthy tones and this was much, much lighter.  I guess you could almost call it shabby chic?

There are a couple of things that I absolutely love about the Lil Country Shed by Funky Junk: the large windows in the roof, the bay window and the porch.  The original design of the shed is awesome but I really wanted to maximize my enjoyment of these features. Originally there was small loft area and ladder.  I removed both of these to completely expose the large window.  I also removed the door scripts from the shed’s double doors so that I had a solid wall for my favorite desk from Cheeky Pea.

The bay window I use to display plants and flowers.  Some of them are higher prim than others, but for me it’s worth the loss in prims because I really enjoy them.  In front of the bay window I added a modified version of a table from the Loft.

The hardest part for me was furniture.  I was really stumped.  And then came along the Amaris Living Room from MudHoney.  This living room set really just fell into place for me and suited the shed’s small space and color palette.  It introduced some of my beloved earth tones and also some brighter tones which really make things pop.

Not too bad for under 500 prims!  And now for some credits…
