My Bungalow: Part 2

If you missed part 1 of this blog post, you can find it here. The Barnesworth Anubis Carraway Bungalow is so gorgeous, and because of how big it is I knew I’d need to break this down into two posts. So, without further ado, here is the final part. As always, please click through to Flickr and hover over the pics to see where each item is from. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask!

This house has two bathrooms. I left the upstairs bathroom as it is when you buy the house, so you can see what the bathrooms look like if you’d rather not retexture. However, in the downstairs bathroom I did a lot of tinting/retexturing. I call the upstairs bath the “rustic bath” because I decorated it with more old fashioned feeling furnishings, as you can see here.

The Rustic Bathroom

For the downstairs bathroom, I wanted a sense of luxury. So, while it still has a bit of a vintage feel (I tend to like vintage/rustic in home design/decor), it also has lots of lush amenities.

Where Dreams Happen

They say the kitchen is the heart of the home. I don’t know how true that is, but in SL I do love to have one! Here are some pics of the cozy kitchen I put together.

Kitchen Comforts

Bake ALL the things

The Carraway Bungalow has four bedrooms. I only photographed two. One of them was designed as a den, and the other as a guest room. Below is a collage of the den.

The Gathering Place

The guest room wound up being my favorite room in the house, and after that I struggled with what was going to be the master bedroom for weeks. I finally decided to just stop so I could blog everything else and transition to my autumn home. Here are the pics of the guest room.

Guest Room Collage

I had to make sure my KittyCatS made an appearance, so tucked into the nooks and crannies of this adorable cupboard bed from fri.day you will notice Meowzers and tiny Strawberry Milk.

Where cats rule

Finally, this spot was my absolute favorite in the entire house… it’s also a part of what I designed as the guest room, and I will end my blog post with this pic.

That razzle dazzle birthday bash…

It’s really hard to believe that it’s been two years since Collabor88 began, but it has! This baby is growing up fast… and it just gets better and better. Collab – as so many of us affectionately call it – has consistently been my favorite monthly event since its inception in August 2011. That hasn’t changed, and in fact with this birthday bash round, the designers have just outdone themselves. First of all, the theme of Razzle Dazzle is awesome. I love all the vintage clothing and furniture. Secondly, Cory Edo of Trompe Loeil built this gorgeous birthday building for the celebration. It’s truly spectacular, and when the crowds die down (that could be a while!), it’s worth popping over for a visit just to see the building… but bring your wallets because you will want to shop, too!

I have lots to show you from Collabor88’s 2nd birthday round. Let’s consider this first post a warm up, shall we? Everything aside from my SLink hands and feet, my eyes and eyelashes is available at Collab… even my pose!

This dress from Auxiliary is just so cute. I love all the jeweled colors in comes in, and the studded collar gives it a touch of edgy modern flair, which I’ve come to expect from Aux. My shoes are from Ingenue, and they require the SLink medium mesh feet, but they’re utterly adorable and available in tons of colors.

It's like a dream

This skin is a 20’s inspired version of Izzie’s brand new Kaelyn skin. I’m not sure when the full release of this skin is coming, but you can snag several versions of it at Collab’s birthday bash in the meantime! Oh, notice I’m not a redhead? I know… I was shocked, too. But this look wanted dark hair, and well… once in a while even I want to be different! The hair is from Alice Project, and it’s utterly adorable. Also, here you can get a better look at the studded collar I mentioned on this dress. Oh, by the way… if you buy this dress, be sure to wear panties with it, as the alpha doesn’t cover, erm… your bits. Of course, if you’re channeling Sharon Stone ala Basic Instinct, then by all means, skip the panties. 😉

Plum Perfect

Finally, here’s a close up of the Ingenue shoes. I love the details on these flirty little shoes. The bows are so sweet and sassy.

Kick up your heels

More to come! I know many are still having trouble getting into the event, as the sim has been full, but you have time to get to Collabor88 before the round is over. It’s one you don’t want to miss! Don’t believe me? Just take a look at the gallery on the Seraphim blog post!
