New @ Designer Prims Heritage Skybox

The Heritage Skybox (INCLUDES FURNITURE)

Second life as been on a go slow today and has been behaving very badly, which is fine, because I’m on holiday and also on a go slow.  It didn’t stop me from finishing the Heritage Skybox I’ve been working on. This delightful 2 level skybox is perfect for your small parcel, it’s two levels making it compact but spacious.  Living areas on the first level and a large bedroom on the 2nd level,the  spiral staircase lends itself perfectly to this design and it also allows a little more space on the lower level .  The French doors and balcony make this design perfect for the ground or the sky. It also incorporates my texture change menu for walls, floors and accent walls, best of all it’s only 499L and  it includes the furniture.  Furniture will rez with the house, but is not linked, so you can simply delete the peices you don’t require.

Simply Black & White

I bought my first RL house back in the 80’s, I had it built for me, which meant I got to choose everything, from walls, floors, fittings and kitchen down to the colour of the window framing.  Back then the trend was all about pastels and florals, but I rebelled the trend and went with black and white, I’ve always loved the striking contrast of pure white against black.  The building company was so impressed with the black and white kitchen I designed they featured it in their marketing brochure.

I’ve been through many phases and trends in RL decorating and renovating, Mediterranean, even a brief stint of shabby chic, but I have always favoured a neutral pallet. I maintain it’s simple to toss a few coloured cushions and accessories into the mix, but not so simple to repaint a room. In RL I am known for wearing any colour as long as it’s black haha!

So it would seem things have gone full circle and I find myself once again leaning toward black and white.  Of course if black and white is not your thing, there is the texture change menu so you can create your own accent walls; I have gone with the black  and gray accents in this series of pics.

My Love Of Shutters

In 2009 I bought my first set of sculpted shutters and used them in my Converted boat shed and The Ellesville and since then I’ve had an absolute love of shutters, incorporating them throughout my designs. Either as room dividers or feature walls and the Summer Beach House is no exception.

I’ve been a little slow in my blogging of late; The new sim lay out as allowed space for a few more designs. Designer Prims Summer Beach House is a two story home, with an open mezzanine floor leading to the bedroom wing. There is a large deck and pool area at the front for outdoor entertaining and a private patio off the bedroom the pool features lots of fun animations for floating, treading water and sunbathing. Like all homes there is interactive one touch texture change menu allowing you to change the walls and floors at a single click.

New Sim Layout

If you’ve visited Designer Prims recently you will have noticed the new sim layout.  I’ve moved the furniture store to the middle of the sim allowing more room for some new designs YAY!

The store is slick and streamlined, an open air experience that allows you to view the entire sim layout.  A big thank you to those who have taken the time to message me and let me know you love the new layout.  Setting up turned out to be a bit of mission, I accidently dropped 2000+ prims and believe me, it’s no fun trying to pick them all up, so your feedback has been welcomed and is truly inspirational.
