Goodness, I do love a mid-century modern house. Barnesworth Anubis brings this gorgeous mid-century gem to The Garden this month: the Atherwood Home. It’s got great lines and a fun layout — plenty of room for living, but not so big that it won’t still feel cozy. I love the brick accents, and the indoor terrace is a great surprise. And – I suspect Barnes would be disappointed if I don’t mention 😉 – the textures do show some depth which makes me happy. If you have shadows enabled all the time, then this house is going to look  just amazing. But if you’re like me and walk around most of the time without shadows, this house still works due to the slight shading and the framing accents inside. Also – there’s a great working fireplace, Barnes-style! ♥

This is the latest house from Barnesworth Anubis – the Lakeside Cottage, available right now at Collabor88. I really love the layout of this house — I’m always a sucka for cottages, anyway, and this feels very nostalgic to me. I’ve always loved the simplicity of cottages like this: subtle architectural details that are lovely but don’t steal the spotlight, a great front porch for enjoying nice weather, and an overall quiet and unassuming presence. I see a lot of houses like this in RL, here in the southern US, and they’re all precious to me. ♥

The Lakeside is quite a bit larger than it looks from the outside – plenty of room for living, dining, kitchen, bath, and a bedroom or 2, even an office, if you’re creative with your space. The textures are quite flat, if you’re someone who generally does NOT have shadows turned on (like me) or who uses a brighter windlight as opposed to the defaults (also like me). But, the house is mod, and it seems like it would be pretty easy to retexture the walls – you probably would have to play around with the alignment on some of them – but it’s doable. If you use shadows, then as you can see in the pic above, the house looks amazing. So clean and simple – very peaceful, really.

This gorgeous contraption above is the Wringer Bench from Dutchie. I lovelovelove this – it looks super realistic as it is, but it’s also set up for materials to really make it come to life. (If you don’t know what I mean by ‘materials’ for SL, do a quick google for it. It’s exciting!)

The Food Fair is officially open! I mentioned this a while back, when I first heard about it, and I was very excited! As it turns out, it’s not quite what I had imagined, which was an entire fair devoted to mesh food/food props. It’s really just for all things food-themed or inspired by food. With that said, though, definitely take a quick browse through there – it’s only 2 sims and laid out in a very easy-to-navigate pattern – because there are some great actual food items sprinkled in there. These are some of my favorites from Cuplrit, Haute House, and Shai.

There are just a few days left in the current round of Collabor88 and you must get over there to check out the Paris Loft skybox from Barnesworth Anubis. YOU MUST. It comes with a surround so you can look out from your balcony on to a lovely Parisian neighborhood…and also without the surround if you’re like ‘bah, neighbors, who needs ’em??’ It ALSO comes with a rainy version, which is so lovely. I wanted sunshine for these pics, but I really did love the look and feel of the rainy version.

I’d love some more shading and depth in this build — poor Barnes, he’s heard that from me so many times ♥ — but really, once I got this place decorated up, it was just perfect. I love that it’s on the small side – you know I like my cozy spaces – and I lovelovelove the multi-level layout. I’m a sucka for a sunken room, and this prefab fills my heart’s desire!

Check out the Paris Loft skybox at Collabor88 (until the 7th)! [SLurl]
