LTD DECOR: Neutral Class

LTD DECOR: NEUTRAL CLASS

By Editorial Clarity

I love a neutral color palette and just recently I have been liking it a lot more than usual! This decor and landscape design was done with the COMPULSION Manor House which was advertised here on the website a few days ago. The house is quite grand in its presence, which I do not mind, because being from England I have a fetish for buildings and gardens that are just OUT THERE!

The Interior of the prefab is very neutral but classy. I wanted to keep that same vibe as I decorated, so I used a lot of whites, creams and brown which I think suit it well. It gives the house a grand and expensive feel, but keeps stylish and comfortable at the same time. It is very easy to go overboard.

I have spoken many times about my love for chairs and seating arrangements. I have a lot of books about Interior Design and one thing I loved when I read about older homes is that they were decorated with lots of seating areas. It almost seemed like any room that had an empty space was filled with a chair or two.

This kitchen is always an important room of any home and to be honest, I am really not a fan of them in Second Life. I found what got me interested in using kitchens was to make them into a separate living area. So with this one, I have added a casual dining table and also a long sofa by URBANIZ’D which I think adds something different to the space. Better than being just a plain old kitchen that I would never use anyway!

The outdoor space is what usually takes the longest, as it is built using prims. I love a good swimming pool, lots of trees and areas to sit and relax, without the space being too huge. In the future, I plan to add a dock which will connect to the other side of the swimming pool. My partner loves docks and boats so one will be added at some point!

I hope you like this new decor. This home will most likely be open for the public to explore in EARLY AUGUST so stay tuned for details about that. In the meantime, if you have any questions about any items featured in the images above, comment below and I will answer as soon as possible!

LTD SUMMER OPEN HOUSE 1 – Low Prim Skybox

LTD SUMMER OPEN HOUSE 1 – LOW PRIM SKYBOX

NOW OPEN – JULY 15 – 20

Today is the day we kick off our SUMMER OPEN HOUSE EVENT and the first home is NOW OPEN for public visiting!

LTD Stylist, Britain Knave, was given the challenge of fully decorating a skybox all for around 300 prims. The interior is beautifully done, full of tiny details and comes in amazingly below 330 prims.

The home will be open for 5 DAYS (closes on 20th). For the best experience, we recommend camming the interior from the viewing area rather than walking around inside. Too many people at one time inside will lead to overcrowding of the space.

Stop by, explore, enjoy, create a shopping list and get inspired to decorate!

LTD – Important Announcement

LTD IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

Since launching, LTD has always had one aim, to be the number one resource for Home and Garden Design in Second Life. This is something we work hard towards, have achieved during our existence, and will continue to maintain.

Unfortunately, due to certain circumstances in Second Life (c) and also time commitments in Real Life, production on LTD MAGAZINE will be on the back burner for a short while as we make some adjustments so that we can continue to deliver a stellar product to you all.

Please do not worry though, this is NOT forever. We are still a very new magazine and this decision was given a lot of thought. We will be relaunching with a brand new LTD Magazine in SEPTEMBER.

The website, which is LTD‘s main outlet, our marketing, group gifts and other projects shall continue on a daily basis as normal and all of our future plans ARE still happening. The only thing that will be delayed for a short period of time is the Magazine.

Content that would have been published in the July/August 2014 issue will be published on our website. This also goes for our recent BEAUTIFUL HOMES SEARCH. The images will be posted on the website and the open houses will happen as planned. And WE ARE STILL LOOKING FOR THE NEW LOGO!

In the meantime, we will continue to be a great resource for all of your Home and Garden news and Design Inspiration for Second Life and the Magazine will be back before you know it!

We would also like to take this time to announce the first of many changes within the LTD. We have some new staff members as well as some promotions in the magazine team. Please welcome:

ABSINTHE MONTENEGRO – LTD EDITOR

ELVI HARTLEY – LTD ASST EDITOR

ESTHER BAILEY – CREATIVE DIRECTOR

Thank you for your loyal support and we will continue to help you spend money on the fabulous items people create so you can design your beautiful spaces!
