Adler

Standard

I received the new house out from Charlotte Bartlett of Scarlet Creative – yay! Although I don’t generally lean toward modern houses and furnishing, I’ve always enjoyed Charlotte’s work, and am so glad to see her back in action! The newest is the Adler, a sleek one-bedroom house with a little bit of an organic touch.

*DISCLAIMER* For some unknown reason, the plants that are included with the house – at the entry and also in the living room – just will NOT rez for me. Ever. I contacted Charlotte about it, thinking maybe they were temp textures left by accident…she checked, confirmed all was right, and sent me a new copy just to be safe…but they still won’t rez for me. I suspect it’s MY problem, though, and not an issue with the house.

With that said, I do really like the little landscaping strip at the front of the house. I also like the pool that wraps around the house, and really love the cute little detail of the outdoor shower.

There’s a great entrance hall when you step inside – prime decorating opportunities, I’d say.

This isn’t a super large house, which I like – each room is pretty large, but I think all the details and textures keep the place from feeling cavernous. There’s a nice large bedroom with a fireplace at the front of the house —

…and a nice large kitchen and dining area on the opposite side. The black accent wall is very striking in this space – love!

The living room is tucked into the back corner of the house, and I like that. Makes it feel more like an escape when you’re not stepping through the front door and right into that living area. We’ve got the black accent wall here again, as well as a really cute built-in fish tank. I also love the bookshelves built around the fireplace – great for putting stuff on surfaces!

Charlotte has included some great shading and lighting in her textures, which gives this house great depth. That’s critical when you’re dealing with a color palette like this. The white walls can seem a bit stark, but nothing that can’t be counteracted by some great pops of color in your decorating. And again, because Charlotte has included the black accent walls, as well as a few shots of fun wall paper, the white is never overpowering.

You can find the Adler on Marketplace or in-world – a furnished (shown here) or unfurnished version!

I was very happy to hear from Charlotte Bartlett recently, letting me know that she’s revived her shop – Scarlet Creative – on Marketplace! If you like modern and minimal, then you’ll love Scarlet Creative! Charlotte dropped a review folder on me with several of her previous builds that have been refreshed, and I’ll share a few with you today. What I really really want to share with you, though, are the AMAZING prices on these houses and furniture!! Check it:

  • Furnished Prefabs are 499L
  • Unfurnished Prefabs are 249L
  • Furniture – 99L for animated or rez on demand objects
  • 49L for basic furniture.

That is an awesome deal for any of Charlotte’s stuff. Her houses are creative and well-built and great for those who want something glam, modern, and clean. I like that the houses show some baked shadows – that’s critical for these big open spaces. Some of the furniture could use a bit more depth and shading to suit my taste, but it’s all very in keeping with that streamlined minimal look.

Hi there, and welcome to August! I had a bunch of really nice review packages sent to me last week, so now I begin my attempt to catch up. Always fun!

Charlotte Bartlett of Scarlet Creative sent me her newest skybox and in the review folder, she included the following note:

Scarlet Creative turns 4 years old in September and each year we create a new range and explore our current inspiration.

This year it is going a little back to our roots.  The urban style home.   The range will start with a skybox “Becoming More Like Alfie” and comes in two options, shell or with furniture.    Following the skybox will be a further range from sleek spa style properties for the beach through to a new grand prefab.

As much as I’m a shabby chic kind of girl, I’ve also always appreciated well-done urban style. The “Becoming More Like Alfie” skybox is a great example of urban simplicity – lots of character, but still a fairly empty canvas to allow you to inject your own character and personality.

A nice big open concept floor plan – and I love how the stairs are off in their own little hallway, but still open to the dining area in the back. Great for traffic flow. I like the super large window on the front, as well – even skyboxes need a view! Throughout the skybox, you can change the look of the windows, as well — open or closed blinds, dark or light opacity, etc.

Charlotte spent a lot of time in the kitchen and dining area. The rooms themselves are simple with clean lines; what’s really fun are the options built into the tabletops! I’m a sucker for SL food stuff – that’s why you can see  me in the background of the pics above, setting up my table – and the Alfie comes with a few different options for setting your table. I went with the fun party food in the dining room…

…and then breakfast in the kitchen the next morning. I like the striped wall in the kitchen – it’s a nice accent and a fun way to break up the white brick (which I also like). I also included a close-up here of the fire place in the living room…and you can see there, again, the nice flow from living to dining.

Upstairs is an open loft bedroom –  love the suspended platform bed – and an open bathroom. More simple and clean lines, and the use of wire mesh for the upper part of the bathroom walls is creative – glass half-walls would have been great, too, but the mesh is unexpected and that makes it cool.

You can see “Becoming More Life Alfie” now at Scarlet Creative [SLurl], and keep a look out for more new releases in the urban line.

Charlotte Bartlett of Scarlet Creative has just released the Artisan Ubon house – a simple, elegant modern prefab. It’s a little on the smaller side, which I really like – a living area and 2 bedrooms, and tons of natural light.
