Fireplace Envy

Oh how I wish I had a fireplace in my real life apartment. Or maybe one of those Swedish tiled stoves or any other kind of wood burning stove. I realise that using these on top of central heating because it's "cosy" isn't environmentally friendly, but I would happily trade in the radiators in my... Continue Reading →

Room with a view

For those of us who enjoy Second Life™ photography, the Backdrop City sim is a godsend. It does what it says on the tin: it's a sim full of backdrops . From the main landing spot you can easily teleport to the themed platforms and find the backdrop that suits your needs at that point.... Continue Reading →

Access aniversary gifts

One of the many popular monthly sales events in Second Life™, named ACCESS, is having an anniversary round this month and there are lots little goodies to grab for free. This round runs until July 8th, so you still have some time to sit it out for a bit until the lag has gone down... Continue Reading →

Castor Cottage – Episode 6

A long long time ago, a century at least, on a sim far far away (on another planet) I was renting the quite roomy Chilmark House by Brook Hill Living. I named it Castor Cottage and spent a lot time decorating it in an eclectic quasi classic style. In this episode of the series about... Continue Reading →

Castor Cottage – Episode 4

Quite some time ago now -or so it seems- I was renting the spacious Chilmark House by Brook Hill Living exquisitely located on a lovely sim. I named my home Castor Cottage and spent a lot time decorating it in an eclectic but mostly classic style befitting a country home. In this fourth episode of... Continue Reading →

It’s a Cover-up 2

I noticed a peak in views of older blog posts about my Linden Homes. As the interior of my Loftroom home looks rather different these days, I thought you might be interested in an update. Fair warning: I will be skipping the details of smaller decor items. The original fireplace is hidden by a wall... Continue Reading →

Castor Cottage – Episode 3

In the first episode of my tour of the house I named Castor Cottage we took a look at the outdoor surroundings and entered via the very spacious entrance hall. As a matter of fact, this room was so spacious it easily took up a second episode. This time I'm taking you into the cosy... Continue Reading →

New Port House IV

Here's the last episode in my New Port House series. This spacious two-bedroom house from Roost kept me busy for a while with its very large main room which functions as an open plan kitchen-diner and living room. Having shown the living room side before, it's now time to take a closer look at the... Continue Reading →

New Port House I

As much as I like tinkering with smaller houses like the Second Life version of the Farnsworth House or a simple guest cottage, I do enjoy getting stuck in with a bigger project. My only rule is: just let me do my thing. Real life is full of "do this, do that" and for me,... Continue Reading →

Fallingwater inspired home

As a teenage boy I walked a rather unconventional educational path from home economics to child care. I vividly remember the course in which I got to draw little floor plans for living spaces and put together mood boards. As a grownup I would occasionally attempt to build a house out of bits of cardboard,... Continue Reading →
