ZENNNNNNNNNN 347

In the land of nothing, in the middle of nowhere, lies a oasis of beauty, peace, and serenity! The stillness of the air is only disturbed by the gentle flowing of water from the fountain of the TLC Little Bit of Zen and the flapping of dragonfly’s wings as it alights from Lotus to Lotus. Your eyes cannot help, but to be drawn to the colorful Koi Fish that swim lazily about or the inspiring stately look of the Red Crown Crane, looking for lunch!

ZENNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN

Your life will be impoverished, indeed, if you can ignore the beauty of the magnificent Di’Cor Asian Pavilion. As you peer inside, the welcoming, exquisitely set tablescape, and the obvious comfort of the chairs of the Pewpew Zen Dinner Set, beckons you to come, stay awhile, and partake of the sake.

ZENNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN_335

Here whispered sweet nothings are made more meaningful by the trickling of water, that sounds almost musical to ear from the .peaches Soothing Fountain found upon the table. As you gaze about in utter amazement you catch sight of the HEXtraordinary Zen Juniper Bonsai and Table and are stunned into reverential silence.

ZENNNNNNNNNN329

Your eyes, appreciatively, travel upwards to the fascinating, delightful *::.who what.::* akari kingyo and watch as the gold fish dart about the hanging bowl light. You marvel at the age old winsomeness of the hand drawn silk screen of Zen Creations Nagusami Wall. Reluctantly you pull yourself up as your time has come to depart and you notice the loveliness and symmetry of style of the elegant Mesh India Stone Lanterns and the in bloom Bonsai/Sand Décor that adorns the landing. As you walk away, the soft sway of the splendid Chestnut Trees and Wild grass by Little Branch, offers you one last caress. After you have walked a ways, you look back, with new fond memories and become startled as the oasis of beauty, peace, and serenity, is gone.

The Librarian’s Lair

Snapshot_320
Our Librarian travels the world and her world are books! Her passionate pursuit of the bound leather and gold that are filled with secrets, knowledge, of ages long gone, current events, and things yet to happen, excites her, thrills her, like nothing else can! Imagine, with just a careful turn of a page, her ardor is  awakened, aroused, and is sated. So it is not surprising, that her small personal space is filled with that love…books! Her home is truly one that is stuffed to the rafters with books of every kind and all that inspires her.  Let’s take a peek and open a page into her private world…the world of the Librarian’s Lair!

Peace On Earth Hunt 9 featuring Zen Creations

zen-creations-poe8-hunt_010

It is,  once again, our favorite season in Second Life…PEACE ON EARTH HUNT SEASON!!!! Can you believe that this marvelous hunt has been going on for 9 years now!!! In keeping with the traditions of the hunt, and the sheer joy of giving, that allows all to obtain some of the best designs and creations for free, to everyone who wish to hunt. In Second Life, it is easy to forget that all do not have the financial means to buy this or that, due to real life financial circumstances. Many, many designers, because of this and their love of others,  have contribute their time, immense talents, and designs/creations, so that all avatars, if they wish,  can have great clothing, accessories, and things for home, for the price of the time it takes to find their awesome gift!  Zhoie Zimmerman, of Zen Creations, a very gifted, extremely talented, generous to a fault, and as sweet as apple pie, is one such designer!

zen-creations-poe8-hunt-gift_012

Boho Fabulous by Serendipity Designs

 

Serendipity BOHO SET_009 rs2

The Pouf and gaily topped End table were placed outside for a nice seating area on the porch.

Boho styling, for home decor, is still hot and going strong! I do not think it will ever go out of style, because we love to mix and match patterns, use different accessories that do not necessarily go together, display things that mean much to us, and color…we love to use lots of color! Boho, which is short for Bohemian gets its inspiration from India and Morocco influences. There are many styles of Boho, such as Gypsy, Indie, Hippie, Bohemian, Hipster, to name a few and is quite easy to do, layering fabrics, colors, and throwing in a bit of art like creator, Kyra Ishtari, owner of Serendipity Designs, has done with her latest design “Boho Fabulous Living Room”!

Serendipity BOHO SET_007rs4

The colorful patterned Sofa and Flutterby Wall Art, and side draped End Table.

Serendipity BOHO SET_008 rs3

The beautiful Papasan Chair and Screen.

Serendipity BOHO SET_006rs6

The delightfully covered Coffee Table with accessories and the glorious Oriental Rug.

The Boho Fabulous Living Room Set, I have, has a Oriental Rug, Flutterby Wall Art, Screen, Papasan Chair, Sofa, Pouf, 2 End tables, and a Coffee table. I just love her use of color patterns, for this set! An amazing mix of decor, most definitely!

I was asked, once, why  I never  use a small space to decorate, as many have small homes, similar to the Linden 512 size. So I took Boho and put it in a small space. It looks boholicious!!! Kyra has taken unique accessories, patterns and textiles, bold/muted colors, and art, and mixed it. The style’s looks completely effortless and unplanned! This is hard to achieve, but she has done it! Her use of unique things, such as the water pipe near the table, is unexpected but totally fits the vibe! Nothing matches in this grouping of furniture, as though it was just thrown together, yet it looks so cohesive and desirous as a set! That is a awesome talent to have, in decorating, and Kyra has this in abundance, as you can see! Boho Fabulous is a very eye appealing, eclectic, chic bohemian look!

Cattlemen's Collection Console_002adj1

Cattlemen is a stylish new collection of western/ranch style furniture by the very talented designer and creator, Kyra Ishtari, owner of Serendipity Designs.

Who said rustic has to be boring! This collection brings the romance to western/ranch design, that will give any room you place it in instant panache, whether that room is located in a Second Life chic mansion, ranch, apartment or hacienda! It will draw you into its allure.

Luxurious, romantic, casual sophistication are words that come to mind when I look at her collection that has been used to furnished this casual family gathering room. From the overhead iron chandelier to the tiniest knick knack horse on the console, it all adds to the amazing drama of the room. The 5 Point Buck Heads on the wall, over the awesome Taos Console Tables, gives a perfect masculine feel to the room that just adds to the ambience  and overall appeal of being in this fabulous space! You just want to come in and make yourself comfortable and have that Apple Martini with the same style and comfort of drinking Johnny Walker, Blue Label, of course!  As you look around at the various furnishing in the room, your eyes naturally gravitate to The Cattlemen’s Sofa that just begs you to sit upon it and stroke the amazing rawhide pillows.The sofa is a multi sit menu with great seating poses. The chocolate brown color of the sofa will hide any sins your SL children may do it!  Under the couch you see the splendid Argentinian Patchwork Rug. Doesn’t, this rug, look just unbelievable under the couch!  The gift from nature of the gorgeous wood trunk table will have you marveling at the beauty and graining of this naturally beautiful, hand crafted, high polished, table.  The obvious pride that Kyra has taken in her designs is very evident!

The Cattlemen’s spectacular  Club Chairs, End Table, Western Room Divider, and Taos Blue Cow Rug, provides an incredible area for a tête-tête or those earlier drinks we mentioned, while you enjoy your down time. The little details and interest, that have been incorporated into her designs  displays, her desire, that she want your second life abode to seem just like home!  As you pan around the room, you see the stunning art work on the walls, such as Boots in Blue, Skulls and Calico Roses Print, and Bison at Sunset. They provide the pop of color in the space that adorns the adobe walls of the Santa Fe Home.  The Southwest Inlaid Nesting Tables are perfectly placed under the Calico Roses Print, bringing color and shape to that area. Next to the nesting tables you see and hear the Singing Finch. Who doesn’t enjoy the sound of birds chirping away!  At the other end of the room, you will find the high quality and handcrafted Cattlemen’s Collection Shelves that displays various what nots and books on it. It has been accented with dried steer skulls, (my camera couldn’t get them to rezz, no matter what I tried. Gotta love Second life!). Placed under the shelves is the Leather Shag Rug. I just want to curl up on it and twirl the little shag pieces between my fingers, smiling!  I took a separate shot of them really up close so you can see the details. Upon the back walls of the room, I placed the really nice black Shabby LaLa Candle Sconces. I just love her accents pieces!  In the room you see the Three Houseplant Set and the Tropical House Plant. Plants add life to a space and is a great decorating accessory and I couldn’t resist adding them into this decor!  I just had to include a shot of the striking fireplace that I placed a plant on! Its a just too beautiful not to have a picture of. It is part of the Santa Fe Home.

Handing you your favorite drink, I hope you have enjoyed your visit!  Everything you see in the pictures, including the Santa Fe House, are from Serendipity Designs!  Ya’ll come on out and pay her a visit now, ya hear!

The last day of the Peace On Earth Hunt and a lovely Room

POE ROOM 1_005

Poe House_003

T’was the month following Christmas, my true love said to me, undeck the halls, and put away the tree! The Peace On Earth Hunt has been amazing!!! Where has the time gone!!! Today is the last day of the hunt and there were over 200 gifts this year…such generosity! While I was out today, hunters were too, some asking if the gifts were still out where I was and of course they were! I wanted to do a final room with some of the POE6 furnishings to show how lovely they looked together. You do not have to limit yourself to having them out only at Christmas time! I was trying to tell a hunter this, and decided the best way was just to show! The POE designers are among the best in Second Life and made high quality gifts for us all to enjoy and most importantly, to use!

Look how well the room flows together..it has such an lovely warm eclectic look!  If you have no money in Second Life for things, to make you feel at home, just look at the designs within this room. There is still some time left before the end of the day to locate these awesome gifts!

I wish to thank you, Sequoia, for caring enough to have this phenomenal annual hunt each year! You work so hard to bring this to the residents of Second Life and make it look effortlessly! You have no idea how many people you actually help, with the Peace On Earth Hunt! Some people come to Second Life who do not have much in real life, and because of you and the fabulous designers, who give generously of their creations and time, allow people to have dignity and a amazing sense of style, with the beautiful clothes, accessories, furniture, homes, home decor, and so many things that have been part of the Peace On Earth Hunts throughout the years that you and they so unselfishly give! From the bottom of my heart I thank you!
