Kaz Nayar has been dedicating his time recently to creating furniture that has a bit of a manly look and feel as a counter weight to all the girly shabby chic that we see so much of (and love). Coming Saturday, his shop Pilot will celebrate its Grand opening.
All furniture in above pic is from Pilot, from the Horatio patio set (texture changing pillows, out at the opening) and the Bridges Bar cart to the Bohn Crate shelf. Other items added are a linen rug from Y’s house, an old freebie Gibson Guitar which was hidden in the depths of my inventory (how it ever survived all the purges is still a mystery to me), a taxiderm Canary from Schadenfreude and a birds drawing from Zigana. Everything carefully watched by my Boris, a great dane from Zooby.
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).
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!
This beautiful day bed full of poses is new at fromThe Loft at FaMESHed. With its soft greys and beiges it’s easy combined in any interior. I have used a very minimalistic set up here with a linen rug from Y’s house and Trompe l’Oeil‘s Flying Bird Display.

Dutchie‘s Froukje Hoorenbeek is one of the best mesh house and furniture creators I know, and I must say that her adult items are usually pretty hot. The 2.0 version of the Gorean furs is more than hot. The animations are sizzling, even if Gor is not your thing. Froukje has included (and that’s the first time I have heard of it) rigged mesh bondage rope, which will move with the sub’s body through the animations. Pretty nifty if you ask me.
Gosh, the set up of Chic Management’s 2nd birthday event is SO awesome! All the designers have done they very best to make their booth look amazing. Seriously, even if you can keep your L$ in your pocket like a boss, go to take a look when it opens on June 3, because wow, it’s just looking great!! Keira and the other people involved in Chic, congratulations on making Chic the best event organisator of SL!!
One of the merchants in the event is Post. With their incredible builds, they are always impressing me. This early 20th century inspired set is pretty epic again.
Chic2 is opening on June 3 and runs through June 24. Chic’s actual birthday is on June 2. Keep an eye on the Chic blog for landmarks once it opens.
Charlotte Bartelett of Scarlet Creative has always been a master in creating white, modern buildings. At Home & Garden Expo she has various samples on display. This is California, a gorgeous split level with an open floor plan.
Scarlet Creative can be found on Dreamseeker Home & Garden Expo 4, sponsored by Dutchie.
