I’ve taken rather a long time to decorate and blog this, so please excuse the lingering seasonal decorations. However, this home is easing me gently out of holiday times, and into a crisper, pastel-shaded new year. One of the key starting points was obviously the house: I do like the layouts in Interior Addiction homes. They combine a feeling of space with attractively separated living areas, so you don’t feel cramped, but you also don’t feel like you are marooned in a giant waiting room.
In this case, some white open partitioning makes three areas at ground level, with one manageably-sized upper room. I ran out of prims when I came to the the little side room at the back (you can just glimpse it on the right in the picture above), and I will probably do a separate post just concentrating on that and the back porch, when I’ve freed up a few more prims
I go through the rooms in more detail below. I think the only things you can see here and not in other pictures are the sheer net curtains on a curtain rod, at the back windows (from Oyakin) and the sink unit in the side room (by aju)
I used the Heart landscaped snow globe, but added the boat arbour to give a hint of summer to come. The house is modify, so you can remove the Xmas wreath and garlands.

Another key piece for this home was the Nieve Armoire from What Next. I bought it because I liked the poses, and I wanted to use it in this fashion blog post, but when I saw the whole Nieve collection I couldn’t resist buying more of it. Also scattered round the house are items from the “By the Sea” set by Dreamscapes, and between them they decided the main colour tones for the furnishings.

I’d intended to put a dining room in this upstairs room, but then I found this bathtub in Cleo and I wanted to use it. Both this and the downstairs bird pictures from aju were specials and may not be available now, unfortunately. The tori shelf has been in a lucky board.

The sofa from The Loft is Mesh and very stylish: however with my viewer I could only get it to resolve properly when I was close up to it, unfortunately, which is why I have shot over the back of it (however, this DOES show up the wonderful cloth textures).
