The Game Hunter’s Oasis

THE BIG GAME HUNTER HANGOUT_009

THE BIG GAME HUNTER HANGOUT_003
He is a big game hunter who feared nothing..except his wife! He was not allowed to install his stuffed trophies in any houses they own, short of himself becoming a mounted prize on his own mantel, by his wife! So he had built the Game Hunter’s Oasis on a private island, they owned, far away from the main house there! He would have his prized trophies shipped there and invite his friends to fly in and they would regale each other with grand stories of their great hunts around the world while enjoying some of the finest liquor known to man!

Our homes speaks volumes, about us! It tells a story of who we are, pride of where we live, our values, what and who we love, without uttering a word! Zhoie Zimmerman, of Zen Creations, loves to tell you a story, too, with her Reclaimed Wood Dresser Set, available at this round of The Cosmopolitan Event for December. She thoughtfully takes wood that contains character and much beauty, and creates from the old, something new, with a glorious past, that is just perfect for your present!  In the dressers, if you look closely, maybe you can “hear” the past echoes of times long gone, that is found within the unique grain patterns, knots, nail holes, dings and dents, and color variations. Perhaps the chosen woods tell you they came from, whispering a grand gentlemen’s bordello, a old barn beyond its prime, a beautiful aged and ancient house that deserves to live on, even in parts! One thing you can be certain, that both the tall and short dressers, with their various sized drawers, has a story worth retelling and worthy of display, in your home!  So make your way to ZEN CREATIONS, at the Cosmopolitan Event, and weave these impressive dressers into the fabric of your life and add to your story, the Reclaimed Wood Dresser Set by Zen Creations!

The accessories used, the Chalkboard, candles, bird, bird cage, umbrella, and vase of flowers are all from the Spring Blackboard Art Table Set by Zen Creations. It is available at the inworld store, http://slurl.com/secondlife/Island%20of%20Zen/208/79/26 or on MP at https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Spring-Blackboard-Art-Table-Set/8095762

Living Large in Second Life….. Featuring Quantum Luxury Homes

The Roma_031 adj

The Roma_001 adj

The Roma_029 adj

The Roma_003 adj

The Roma_005 adj

A home, for many, whether real life or Second Life, announces to the world who you are or who you want to be! Well, for you movers and shakers, Second Life Rock Stars, hip hop royalty, Basketball/Football League Players, Fashionistas, Recessionistas, Divos & Divas, high rollers, and those of you with class, a major house design has arrived upon the grid!

There exists a luxurious experience of dwelling, that will boast with much elegance, style, and major swag, that you have arrived, without you even opening your mouth or your publicist issuing a statement! Whoever said that money cannot buy you happiness, has not seen this grande maison!

The Roma, by Master Builder, Cain Maven of Quantum Luxury Homes, is your passport to living large in Second Life! This home, even empty, gives serious bragging rights, to it’s owners! Let me start off by describing some of the amenities of this home.

The Roma_024 adj

The Roma_036 adj

The Roma_023 adj

Roma_011adj

The Roma_038  adj

The Roma_033 adj

The Roma, boasts 28 rooms, some of which are two large suites with anteroom, bedroom, and en-suite bathroom, Junior Suite with anteroom and bedroom, three large bedrooms, two bathrooms, Kitchen, Reception Room, Front Room, Dining Room, Study, Living Room, Great Room, Family Room, Breakfast Room, Game Room, Conservatory, Bars, Movie Theater, Indoor/Outdoor Pools, Laundry Room, Huge Domed Foyer and Two Car Garage.

Some of the Features of The Roma are…

• Main patio with two swimming pools
• Side patio with bar
• Five fireplaces
• Animated poses in showers, bath tubs, bathroom sinks, kitchen stools, pool seats, and theater seats
• Full set of appliances in kitchen
• Running water in taps
• plus the ever present Mr. Duck, who is found in all of the Quantum Homes.

This home is immense, as will be your ego, with pride of ownership! The prim count for it is 1354 and 1233 if you take out the kitchen, bathrooms, and movie theater items. The size is 115 sqm x 87 sqm. I put it on a 1/4 parcel sized Beach Sim. The recommended parcel size is 1/4 full region or a full homestead.

Now mind you, moi, does not have an ego, but when I saw this mansion, I felt myself walking with a serious attitude of “umhm..this is me…I live here..no autographs please” and, smiling, wondering where my butler was! The mansion is simply dropped dead, gorgeously amazing! Because The Roma has so much to offer, I have taken pictures of what made it special to me and had me wiping the drool, from my lips!

The Roma_040 adj

The Roma_012 adj

The Roma_007 adj

Do you have a large SL Family? You can go days and not see the most irritating of your relatives, in this home, as they will never want to leave this extravagant dwelling! Frequent drop in overnight guests/groupies, huge parties and events, will be no problem in this sexy domicile. This home was made for entertaining!

My pictures do not do this mansion justice, so you must make a trip to Quantum Homes, to see for yourself this magnificent home and experience for yourself the ambience of this truly stunning mansion.

The Roma_021 adj

The Roma_019 adjRoma_010 adj

Looking at the home, you will be impressed with the statement, it makes, upon arrival. Just imagine what your guests will think and say when they come to visit! This home is even large enough, and easily adaptable, to holding real life conference meetings in too!

I took pictures of the grand entrance to the home. My camera just could not capture the OMG effect, that I had  entering the home! I included pictures of the side appendages of the mansion, where the huge attached 2 car garage is located, that is on the side of the paved courtyard that enters into the pavilion for  covered outdoor entertaining! The spaciousness of the courtyard is very evident as you walk through the breezeway to it as you make your way to the sumptuous outdoor wood paneled, marble top bar. The other picture is on the conservatory entry side of the home.

Once inside the home, your eyes are treated to the grandeur of the entry hall, that has an engagingly arresting copper/brass fountain nestled inside a decorative colorful hand painted floor design.  The to die for, double circular staircase, that leads upstairs and to the entrance of the home theatre.  This is one glamorous home theatre with comfortable seats, large wall TV screen!  All you need to add is the popcorn machine and a candy counter to enjoy hours of watching movies and other programming! The Theater Screen is a web browser that you can use to view websites in Second Life. You can configure any number of channels (i.e. websites) and easily flip through them.

The chef of your family or employ, will give you their undying gratitude for having such a fully applianced attractive kitchen to work in. I really love this kitchen and you will too!!!!

I didn’t include any pictures of bedrooms, as Cain’s bedrooms are legendary! I did include a picture of a walk in closet! I am a serious shoe collector in real life and here in second life! I squealed like a pig, when I saw the walk in closet and all that space!

My next series of pictures are of the pool area! The pool is beyond compare for a private home! It is an outdoor/indoor pool. You can open the sliding doors on both walls of the room, for more access to the walk way and to the other outdoor area of the pool. I have never seen a home, in Second Life, with such a killer pool area. If any of you have ever visited The Hearst Castle, this will be the modern version of one of the Casa’s pools! It is no less grand and so sophisticated looking! Can you say pool party!!!!  I can see the dj now and all the beautiful people around these pools! As you can see, the house has many balconies, including two inside the home, just outside the pool area!  Look at that hot tub spa area and its greenery!!!  You can sit, on starry nights, and watch the small fire, or relax after a hard day inside the very generous size spa tub. At night, it has such an alluring appeal, as it looks so pretty and inviting!

The last series of pictures are of the indoor conservatory. Plants add so much to a home’s ambience, but to have an entire area, is such a luxury! The sliding door entrance takes you into the conservatory that also has a bar area. As you  enter, the area, you see a really awesome wall fountain. You can add more plants here, and make a lovely indoor garden! There is so much space, that your ideas of what you can do, with it, is unlimitedless! The last picture, is because I love the arches throughout the home. Mr. Maven’s use of palladium windows, arches, and marble columns, puts this house over the top!

There is a saying of “go big or go home” and it is so obvious, that Mr. Maven took that to heart! This is one of the best mesh homes, I have seen in a long time! It also shows that he listens to  his customers, as many of the items, in this home, have been requested and desired by his customers! He has placed so many details, in this home, that has to be seen, in person, to be appreciated. This is a design that shows the commitment of its designer, to the care and comfort of his customers. People will definitely wonder who you are, when they see you living in such opulence!

Please come out and see The Roma, by Cain Maven of Quantum Luxury Homes. It will blow you away!

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!
