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.

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_016 ajd

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!

The Modena_019

The Modena_007

The Modena_013

Real life has been really busy and stressful lately with responsibilities, so I am tardy with my posts and for that I am sorry.

When you see a design that blows you away, you just have to post it! This amazing luxurious home, from Master Builder, Cain Maven, Maven Homes, falls into that category! The Modena, ooo, I just love saying that name, is the latest design available at Maven Homes!

The house is phenomenal! If you have a large and extended Sl Family or you are a single, love huge and spacious rooms, details of architecture, want a pool area to die for, and many other details too numerous to name, then the Modena is your next home!

When you cast your eyes upon this exquisite home, walking up the steps, your eyes are immediately focused upon the portico and you are instantly seduced by the beauty and placement of the windows, the glass excerpts upon the doors, the huge circle window above the palladium surround of the door, which affords you a glimpse of the interior details beauteous home.

The home boasts 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a spectacular kitchen, a dining room, living room, family room, study, and den! This is a home you really should go to see for yourself, as pictures really do not do it true justice!

As you walk through The Modena, you cannot help but to be impressed, by the layout of the house. The home despite the size, still has an intimate feel to it. What woman does not like a walk in closet…yes…one of the bedrooms has a walk in closet!!!! You can open the highly detailed windows with just a touch, I personally adore windows that I can open! I cannot begin to list all the features of this stupendous design! The dramatic staircase is beautifully placed with a overhead widow walk that connects the sides…simply amazing! Smiling, I can see a child sliding down that banister…heck I can see myself doing that too…laughing!

Some of the special features are the Patio/swimming pool area with a fire pit, two fireplaces, animated poses in showers, bath tubs, bathroom sinks, and kitchen stools. The Kitchen has a full set of appliances, marble top counters, and has running water in taps and the famous Maven Duck resides in one of the bathrooms sitting proudly on the edge of the tub.

The Modena_016

The Modena_005

The Modena_022

This home is perfect whether you are a family or a single! You have so much space for decorating! this home will instantly become THE gathering spot for your family and friends

The Modena, has a home control system. It is very easy to use and controls the security access to house. You can adjust window opacity and tint with it. Through the control system, lights can be turned on, off, or dimmed. You can also set them to automatically turn on or off based on sim time of day and have doors that are lockable and can be set to open automatically upon entry.

The house is also Materials enable! This build employs Materials technology to improve realism on relevant surfaces. To see the effect you will need a materials-compatible viewer with the Advanced Lighting Model enabled. For best results, enable Ambient Occlusion and set Shadows to None

The house has a land impact of 520 (436 without the kitchen and bathrooms)
Size: 56 m x 47 m. Recommended parcel size: 4096 sqm or larger. with the Modena, you can achieve the most realistic water effect, for the pool, if you place the house at sea level. An alternative effect is available if this is not possible.

New Releases From Lumiere

Slatt Sparking Chair -A-Whitewash_002

August brings many new home decor/furnishings releases from Lumiere! I will be showing you a couple. I am one of those who like to feature furnishings in room settings. It gives you ideas as to how you can use the designs and I LOVE to arrange furniture….smiles

Our first picture, above, features a adorable and romantic design named Splatt Sparking Chair by Lumiere. In the olden days they were called courting chairs. A man would sit on one side and the lady on the other, close enough to have that intimate tête-à-tête but far enough apart so that the chaperones couldn’t fuss! There is a pose menu in one seats for a male and in the other for a female. I love this style of chair, because it is so versatile, as you can use this in your garden, on your patio, or in your home. Actually it can be placed anywhere for a special moment with the one you care about! This also comes in a darker finish too! On the wall, you see two very nice Silver Horn Wall Sconces by Lumiere that adds just the right amount of glow upon the wall! To finish off the look, I added 2 nicely potted medium plants by Persnickety and a Ceawlin Texture Change Victorian Rug.

In the second Picture, you see a beautiful glass and gold base Leaf table and Leaf Lamp by Lumiere. it is the perfect accent table and lamp for any room. Here you see that I have placed it in the entry way and makes that area look welcoming and colorful! The rug is Ceawlin Texture Change Victorian Rug and the four pictures above are Tutti-Fruiti Pictures by LISP Bazaar .

Lumiere Leaf Side Table and Leaf Lamp_003

Our last picture, below, you see the Craft Reading Table in Green and the Ladderback Chair with the Yellow Diamond pattern for the chair seat, both by Lumiere. The menu pose, for the chair, have you reading at the table. The table and chairs come in several colors and will look just lovely in your home. Hanging overhead you see a beautiful white Country Chic Chandelier also by Lumiere. There is also a large Picture Heart with lace by Persnickety, A Paris Rug by Kaerri, a
English Ivy in Antique Verdigris Teal Turquoise Planter by ETC. and 2 LISP Lilac and Mint Frames that completes this pretty scene.

The Adagio Modern Luxury Home by Maven Homes

The Adagio_026

When I saw and entered this beautiful modern luxury home, I immediately felt that it truly fits the musical definition for its name, Adagio, which means slowly, leisurely, and gracefully! As you walk through the house, you feel you can’t rush through it. It is a home that beckons you to just take your time, be leisure, enjoy the three levels of graceful luxury that Cain Maven has designed for your visual pleasure and physical use. This designer/builder is truly a master builder! The Adagio Modern Luxury Home by Maven Homes is an example of why!

Even before you enter the home, you and your guests are greeted on one side by a illusion pool that flows from inside the house’s double faced 2 story fireplace to the small pool outside with a delightful water spray. On the other side of the impressive entrance that have planters on either side of the slate stairs, there is another outdoor patio. There is also a house controller outside in the entry for your convenience. Through the doors, as you enter the home, to your left is a small walkway over the water that leads to the outside pool. You are immediately impressed by the sheer size of living space. Mr. Maven did a magnificent job of combining glass, natural woods, and stone.

As you walk up the glass enclosed staircase, even the most jaded cannot help but be impressed with the layout of the home. The second floor has a luxurious large bathroom, there are several rooms with balcony access, the second level of that amazing fireplace! There is so much space in this house that you will never feel crowded no matter how many you have in your family!

Throughout the home you will find house controllers, which controls the access, security, lights, windows, and doors for the entire house.

There are many blinds placed throughout the home including on the third level, to shade if you wish. Outside on this level there is a huge pool, balcony space, and a another room.

Villa Anatra_006

I was intrigued by the name…Anatra means duck in Italian! The Villa Anatra has such a grandiose presence…it is truly special!

The front façade has a three arch entrance veranda as its graceful centerpiece. Golden limestone that has gently aged through time adorns the elegant exterior walls of the villa.  Above the verandah, a carved stone balustrade balcony crowns its regally! The villa’s exterior corner edges are decorated with white quoins as accents that adds to the allure of Villa Anatra. This along with the red color of the terra cotta tile roof begins your seduction….making you want to open the wooden door that is surrounded by palladium windows with a transom top and on either side of the door 2 delightfully large outside black lanterns to illuminate her beauty at night. The Villa is designed in such a way with many windows that affords you and your guests equally spectacular views in all directions of your land, no matter which room you are in!

As you enter, you are blown away with the look of the tiled breezeway that connects the living spaces of the villa! It also leads to the outside back courtyard that has an amazing fountain for your pleasure and the villa’s pet duck swimming happily in it! The mixed terra cotta tile of the floor and the magnificent stone and marble of the adjacent balustrade grand staircase cannot help but to impress the most jaded of visitors.

As I walked through Villa Anatra, I had the exciting opportunity to talk to her designer, Cain Maven! He is a supremely talented designer/creator and when speaking of his designs you cannot help but to notice the infectious passion he has for them ! Mr. Maven told me and I quote “I wanted to create something in the tradition of the Italian Renaissance, particularly the ideals and principles of Andrea Palladio. I also wanted to use mesh technology to create a level of detail that is not possible with prims. It turned out to be a lot of work, but I’m fairly happy with the result.”

As you can see from the pictures, he has succeeded! If you cannot tell by now, I am in LOVE with the Villa Anatra!!! You must take the below limo to Maven homes and see Villa Anatra in person!

As you look above you at the huge fire lit chandelier, the fantastic molding of the ceilings above, the cathedral arches, the coffered ceilings of the rooms, the Tuscan Columns, and corridors, you are swept away to another time! The archway of the doors, the decorative trim along the walls and the half columns that form gorgeous marble arches upon the walls that are spaced along the upper and lower level middle section of the walls,  you find yourself impressed by the old world charm of the villa and feel instantly an affinity for her, smiling, the villa is drawing you in with her beauty and you can’t help yourself! On the main level you have the Living, Dining, Study Rooms, the Kitchen, and the beautiful long corridor leading from the breezeway. There are also 2 large fireplaces, downstairs, in the villa. Upstairs, you have 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms. The floors are exquisitely covered in dark Parquet Wood and the bathrooms are Sandstone tiled. The master bedrooms on either end of the corridor both have entrances that lead to the front balcony. The villa is spacious and very well made. There are none of those jagged edges anywhere or alignments problems. The home is perfect for entertaining and gracious living! Standing from the upper corridor overlooking the breezeway, pride of ownership will make you smile. You too will fall under the spell of the Villa Anatra and be romanced by her!
