Animal attraction

Well, spring seems to be finally there (these days, you can never be sure…), and I nearly feel like I should apologise for not putting together a blog post around the spring edition of the Season’s Hunt (which ends today – 30th April). Well, I did have a go at the hunt (the homewares part). Over two evenings, I did hunt for stuff. Some stuff I found, some stuff I didn’t find. In the process, I crashed 47 times, and at some point, I decided it wasn’t how I wanted to spend my free time right now.

But I’m grateful to all those who reported, no doubt in far better fashion than I could have done!

Can’t wait for the Autumn one, though.

I was actually gonna go all the way down the trashy route for this one, but do you know how hard it is to find trashy furniture/home accessories that are nicely done???? So it turned into…something else.

One for the girls

I dislike pink intensely (it’s an illness, obviously), so I’ve no idea where this came from, but I’ve wanted to do this room for a while. Actually, I know where it came from. I fell in love with this *cough* pink texture from Torley Linden’s texture pack, and I wanted to build something around it…

The result is uncluttered, peaceful, and…well…pink. And I like it…

Work in progress

Renovating is tiring. So’s cooking. And I haven’t finished the living room.

Time for some downtime!

I need some curtains…

Domestic goddess

I’ve been living in Bang Bang Summer House for a while, and I really love the space. It feels just right – not too big, not too small (I’m not a fan of huge rooms, for some reason…yeah, I know I don’t have to worry about central heating bills, but still, I prefer a space that’s human sized…). I like to think of it as this cute crumbling around the edges house in the south of France (or somewhere warm, at any rate), that I picked up for a song and that I’m having lots of fun redecorating. Not that there’s anything wrong with the house – I just like tinkering!

For some reason, one half of the space really said “kitchen” to me. Which was a bit of a challenge. I’m not really a kitchen person (when I make toast, I know it’s ready when the fire alarm goes on…). So I had to improvise (not much kitchen stuff in my inventory), which actually works well with the feel I was going for.

Also, there’s something about “kitchen” that brings out the 1950’s housewife in me. So that meant Ivalde Marilyn wiggle dress. Of course. Bonus: it matches my saucepans.

Beach bedroom

What can I say…more seaside modern.

Absolutely love that prefab, even if I couldn’t help myself tinkering with the wall colours (the original colour is a lovely deep red, which I do like…but I really wanted green). It could even be used as a skybox, if you’re really careful and make sure you don’t open the doors, haha…

There’s a roof terrace, too, which I’m not showing…but I love it.
