My Bungalow: Part 1

I fell in love with the Barnesworth Anubis Carraway Bungalow that was part of Collabor88 in August. It’s a big house, so it took me a while to decorate it! I have a LOT of pics for this house, so I decided to break it down into two posts.

I modified this house a good bit, in terms of textures. Some of the walls I just tinted, and some I used wallpaper on. Unlike some mesh houses, that was possible with this one. It took some trial and error, but it was a lot of fun to do. I like customizing houses, so that they feel more “me.” I never used to do this, but my BFF Rosa got me hooked, and now I love it.

So, here are the pics… or at least the first batch. I’ll try to keep my comments to a minimum. As always, please click through the pics to see them bigger in Flickr. You’ll also find notes on each pic with where each item is from. If I missed something (I hope not!) or you want more info, feel free to ask in the comments here or on Flickr, or IM me in world.

Porch

I have to say this… the Carraway comes with several gorgeous built in cabinets and shelves. The best part? They are all functional, meaning they open!

Mantle

I wanted to particularly point out the adorable Friends artwork seen in this next collage because it is an item from Sway’s for the current round of The Arcade, and you only have a few more days to go try to win it!

It's the little things

Live comfortably

This college shows the dining room built in, which I photographed with some doors open, so you could get a better idea for what I mean about what an awesome detail this is.

And everyone was invited

The second post will be coming soon, so keep an eye out for it!

Dragonfly Cottage

When I saw Eku Zhong of Culprit posting WIP pics of the Dragonfly Cottage, I knew I would need it. You can see her pics here. It’s a perfect summer home. I love the colors, and the gorgeous texture work. Eku also included the texture maps so people can modify to make their own. I’m utterly clueless about these things, but I thought it was a really cool feature for those of you who are able to do this.

This post is going to be pic intensive, so I am not going to talk much. I’ll mostly just share the pics. As always, you can click through to Flickr to see notes on each image for the items featured. If you want to know something specific, please don’t hesitate to comment here or on the Flickr link.

To decorate the living room, I took advantage of the recent fri.day/fri.home 50% off sale. Oh, and I have to point out that lamp. It’s from a brand new store, encore. Isn’t adorable?

Dragonfly Fireplace

I love anything tea related… in RL or SL! So I had to have this cabinet from floorplan!

Tea Time

My kitchen features the Salty Dogs & Mermaids kitchen from LISP and the dining set is LAQ Decor. I love the dining set because you get tons of colors, and you can choose from a wide variety of table settings, too.

Dragonfly Kitchen & Dining

The sun porch has such a beautiful tile floor, and the colors are gorgeous with the teal/greens of the walls and outside. The rug is from encore.

The cottage has a wrap around deck that rocks!

Dragonfly Deck

The large upstairs loft has a balcony. One thing I especially like about this house is that the doors stay open unless you close them. I wish more houses did this, especially ones that are perfect for warmer weather.

Goodnight Moon

This sewing machine from Kuro makes me nostalgic. My mom had an antique sewing machine in RL when I was a little girl. I used to push the pedal (and then get yelled at when I got caught). The rug in this pic is from encore, too. I feel SL has a shortage of good rugs, especially ones you can resize, so the rugs from encore really made me happy!

All Sewn Up

This bed from Cheeky Pea is just adorable. I’m kind of obsessed with beds in SL, and this is one of my favorites ever.

Dragonfly Bedroom

Finally, this gorgeous table is from Senzafine. It’s inspired by Tolkien, and the detail on it is utterly spectacular. My picture frame from What Next has a shot of my youngest SL sister, Isley. The calendar from Cheeky Pea is set to August 31st because that’s Isley’s RL birthday. 🙂

Again, if you have any questions about anything, don’t hesitate to ask, here or on Flickr! I love comments.

Well, I’m off to decorate my next house… stay tuned.
