Down Town New Orleans

 

Gosh, I realise I have been blogging Collabor88 mostly for the past few months, but I put myself on a budget and the deals at C88 are just so awesome, and since this month, I’ve been added to the Collabor88 blog list, so I proudly show you the new sky box Barnesworth Anubis has made for this edition. New Orleans is a 2 space loft with a nice balcony and NO quarter surrounding

Used furniture: Harford patio set by Pilot, Priya sofa by Mudhoney, Frezza rug by The Loft

The Wareham Mansion @ The Loft

This is the new mesh house from The Loft. Nardya Rousselot from Nardcotix and Colleen Desmoulins from The Lost have joined forces and this is the first big collab release. The house is one floor, but a spacious 2 bedroom mansion with an open floor plan for the living- and dining room and kitchen.

Both bedrooms are spacious as well and the master bedroom has a walk in closet!! Then there are 2 smaller rooms, one is perfect for a bathroom, the in the other you can place  your washing machine and your dryer. WHAT? you say… laundry in SL?? Yes, and with some  fun animations, too!
The same goes for the kitchen, it’s LOADED with single, couples and family animations. Make a sammich for yourself and the children, grab a drink from the fridge, cook dinner and yes, even mop the floor or clean the windows (not that I want to clean the windows in SL, but hey, to have the option is kinda cute).

Stockholm @ Collabor88

Another beautiful skybox from Barnesworth Anubis for this month’s Collabor88. This brick and white chalked loft is available with and without furniture, but for a grand total of L$ 388, I did totally get the full pack. The only thing that didn’t come with the skybox is the Stockholm collage “Dansmuseet” from Samara Barzane.

June Collabor88: Barnesworth Anubis

Another creator who never disappoints at Collabor88 is Mr. Barnesworth Anubis. This month he has released a pretty Palm Springs Cottage. Good old prim work, so no mesh viewer needed! You can either buy it unfurnished or furninshed, but either way, It’s a great deal.

For the decoration of the cottage, I used the furniture that Barnesworth has out at Collabor88, as well as some pieces of his Mullholland House furniture pack.

June Collabor88: Trompe l’Oeil

Cory Edo of Trompe l’ Oeil has done it again. For June’s edition of Collabor88 she has released this mesh, furnished, skybox where Mr. Draper would feel right at home.
If you have never been before to Collabor88 , you are missing out every month on some great furniture and builds from some of SL’s finest creators!

Also, if you don’t have the space for this skybox, but still want some retro touches to your interior, Ms Edo has released the living room and dining room furniture separately in a LOT of different colors. Below you see the white three cushion seat and the pearl artichoke lamps, because I just simply love white furniture!

Funky Junk & Beach Street @ Home & Garden Expo

Funky Junk’s Americana is an awesome 3 bed room family house, which I actually consider to get for when I redo the sim. My only concern is… how to incorporate it into the tropical laguna that I have in mind for the sim….
While at the expo I also saw the house below by Beach Street. It’s Funky Junk’s Expo sim neighbor. Isn’t this a cute one either??

Funky Junk and Beach Street are both located on Dreamseeker Home & Garden Expo sim 2, sponsored by What Next. Click on the map below for a SLurl to the sim.
