Meanwhile, at The Home ShowRia Bazar of BAZAR has clearly brought her A game. I love everything she has at The Home Show…I’ve checked out her shop before and really liked what I saw, and this newer stuff has just reminded me “oh, hey, Bazar is pretty damn awesome. Go there.” That’s how my inner monologue works. Concise.

Anyway, you definitely need to check out BAZAR at The Home Show (and then some) – and, you know, I don’t really mention prices that often on this blog because that’s not my focus —  BUT ohmygoodness, Ria is offering her stuff at amazing prices. At least the stuff at The Home Show (I’ve said that event name like 20 times in this post already – can’t be helped) is really wonderfully affordable, especially for the great mesh quality of the pieces. Who doesn’t love a bargain??

Also, this picture contains awesome from some of my other favorite designers: Cory Edo of Trompe Loeil and Tegan Serin of floorplan. Never stop, you guys. NEVER STOP. ♥blog 1

I love committing to a theme. This room is a mash-up of two sets available now at FaMESHed: you’ve got a super cute bedroom from Tegan Serin and floorplan., and then there’s a  classic office from fri.home, which is a collaboration between Tegan and Darling Monday of fri.day. You know what I love best about their collaboration — aside from the awesome furniture? The fact that floorplan. stuff and fri.home stuff goes so well together – it’s like a megastore that just happens to be split between two locations. Or some other analogy that is more profound. Your choice.

I desperately want a shabby old card catalog in RL. 3-d printer, anyone?

I love the books-as-headboard idea – from a distance, it looks sorta artsy and geometric, and it’s only up close that you realize ‘oh hey – books!”. I like that. And I predict that little book on the nightstand, the one with the pages formed into a heart, is going to become one of my favorite decorating accents. Love.

See these sets at FaMESHed! [SLurl]

This is exciting. A new joint effort between two awesome designers always is. Introducing fri.day home – a collaboration between Darling Monday of fri.day and Tegan Serin (aka Friday Monday) of floorplan.

The first full set out from fri.home is the Parlor Set, a really sweet cottage-y set. Lots of cute pieces for living room, study, foyer…and of course they coordinate really well with things from floorplan. which just gives you so many options. Yes, you.

Let’s focus first on the furniture itself. It’s gorgeous. Focus on that. Froukje has created a beautiful classic library with great detail. The fireplace is awesome, and the leather club chairs are just perfect! There are 2 versions of the chair — a male and a female — and I’ve featured the female chair in this post. Both are lovely; the female has a lighter texture and is a little bit softer in design. The leather texture on both chairs is wonderful, though. ♥

Does anyone else lovelovelove that we can now have REAL bookshelves with REAL books, thanks to mesh? Remember the days when a full bookshelf like this would have just been a photo texture of lots of books, without the lovely depth and detail of individual items? TAKE THAT, 2006! These shelves are full of gorgeous books, and are still only 4 prims per bookcase. Yessssssss.

Okay, so speaking of fun and winkyfaces…Froukje has also added her signature touch to this set with a TON of ohmygoodnesswhat animations. I’m too shy to show you the anims in action — of course — but check out just some of the menus.

And there’s more. OH THERE’S MORE.
