I was happy to see that Yelo Uriza of ARIA is back to designing! She sent me her Nina Living Room set to check out – ARIA has always been great for modern pieces, and this is a nice, clean-lines room with a great color palette. I love the pops of color in the poufs and the awesome chandelier.

I also received a review folder from Adham Decuir of [adham decuir] homes. Adham is a new-to-me builder; he’s just got a few houses out so far, also very modern in style, and very well done in mesh with gorgeous baked shadows and lighting.

I like ’em. What’s also interesting is that Adham offers his houses with full perms. He also provides the shadow maps with the full perm houses, so it would be easy to create your own textures without losing any of the shadows and lights. Be sure to read over the full perm license, but it’s certainly an interesting idea!

Home Expo Goodness – part 5


So, I’ve only covered 3 of the 10 Home Expo sims, and I’m already at part 5 for blogging. That tells us two things: 1) there is SO MUCH AWESOME at Home Expo, and 2) I need to get moving so I can finish the other 7 sims before Expo ends on Sunday!

Some more cuteness and awesomeness that you need to check out:

*Art Dummy! by Gala Charron – I love Gala’s stuff  – there’s always a touch of whimsy!

LISP Bazaar by Pandora Popstar – another designer who never ceases to amaze me and is so consistent in producing amazing work. LISP and Art Dummy are sharing a space at the Expo, and it is probably the cutest set up ever! So fun!

Awesome Blossom – designer Clementine Ishtari really has the knack for super precious and cozy prefabs. I love everything about her new house that’s available at Expo, and especially love that the bedroom is raised for a slight loft feel…those are the little details that make me squee!

ARIA, by Yelo Uriza, is a great place to check out if your tastes lean more toward modern. You’ll always find great shading and textures and fun details.

Home Expo ends on May 22!!

Hi there! Just have some updates to share with you from designers around the grid – here ya go!

La’Licious Designs has just released two versions of a totally cute shabby chic bedroom, part of the Trash To Treasures collection!

The Heather Living Room is new from ARIA. Great texturing and shading, and great foundational pieces to build a room around.

New Trails has a new oak tree – just 2 prims! – that includes shadows, groundcovers, and a blossom particle emitter. All the things that make New Trails trees awesome! Even better, until 2pm SLT on June 15th, you can get a special deal:

  • Buy a transfer pack and get a second one (same size) for free!
  • Buy a copy pack and get all sizes for the price of 1 pack!

There’s also a cute bonsai version of the tree that’s available for FREE until June 15th at 2pm SLT! Be sure to pick that up!

New from Dutchie Furniture is the Holle Bilt prefab. I really like the combination of the antique farmhouse feel with the modern interior – and the textures and shading look very well done. The house is available furnished or unfurnished, and the furniture is also available separately for purchase.

Spruce Up Your Space – February wrap-up!


It’s the final weekend of our February SUYS event! This weekend, we wrap up this month’s theme of “Cupid’s House” – our designers were asked to envision what Cupid’s off-hours space looks like – maybe he’s a slob, maybe he’s into a bit of kink, maybe he’s homeless! A different set of designers will be releasing their items each weekend in February, at discounted prices for that weekend only!

Once again, we have awesome designers releasing awesome stuff! Each week, I’m surprised and amazed all over again at what our creative and talented designers come up with! Here’s what you can look forward to this weekend — all items should be available in the shops by 9AM SLT today – and remember, for this weekend, all SUYS items are $150L or less!!

*Holiday Round up & more holiday stuff from me!*


Just a quick holiday post — there’s still time for more decorating! Yelo Uriza of ARIA Interior Design sent me a nice note and LM for her shop, so I popped over to check out her holiday items, and I found these super adorable holiday rabbits! You should definitely put these in someone’s stocking this Christmas! [hint: mine]


Yelo also has some really cute actual stockings — some of which include bunnies. 🙂 These would be great on your mantel…they’d also make great giftboxes!


You can see everything Yelo has at ARIA – Interior Design!

I’ve also got two new “wrapped with love” gift boxes for you today. Swing by Second Spaces and grab them — they’re right in front along with all the previous releases shown below


Previous releases!



Happy holidays!
