There is truly so much goodness coming out of the home/decor world these days that I just can’t keep up. I will continue to make feeble attempts, though. That’s all I can promise.

There are two new stores that you must check out. There’s .encore. by Alixxbella Resident, which has opened strong with a lot of cute, shabby chic pieces, and a ton of really great rugs. I’m always looking for great rugs. And there’s also Seven Emporium by Agustkov Resident, which is filled with really cool, quirky, eclectic, unexpected items, all very well done in mesh. I’m very excited to see what comes next from both of these shops!

That oh-so-comfy couch is new from Isla Gealach and Cheeky Pea, and available right now at The Men’s Dept. The chair – which I’m so happy about because I totally lovelovelove that style – is from Winter Thorn and {what next}, and is available right now at The Garden. Speaking of Seven Emporium, the ON AIR and APPLAUSE signs are from that shop, and of all the quirky wonderfulness that Agustkov has available, I think those two signs are my absolute favorites. Expect to see them used A LOT in my pics. Speaking of multiple uses, I think I just used that cattle skull in a pic a week or so again…and I do try not to repeat items too often, but I don’t think I could love that skull any more. ♥ It’s perfect for all occasions.

The August round of FaMESHed started on the 1st – but you knew that. Cory Edo and Trompe Loeil have brought another gorgeous set – the Oceania Collection. I feel like it’s been a while since we had a new room, rather than a new house, from Cory…but that may not be accurate. She makes SO MUCH STUFF that I lose track. I just know that I love it all — whatever it is and whenever it comes out. ♥

Also – I lovelovelove the wood frames on the upholstered pieces. So art deco. So wood. I love wood!! …but you knew that.

reBourne has released their latest: the Bali House. This gorgeous tropical paradise is available furnished or unfurnished, as a skybox or as a ground house.

It’s really quite stunning. I was able to check out the house during a blogger preview, and all these pics were taken at the preview site. SL shadows were NOT enabled when I took these — that’s just how awesome the shading and light are in the build.
