Sunday Morning Bachelor Pad

This is a different sort of style for me. I typically favor “shabby chic,” or a more vintage/traditional look, but a few interesting items came my way, so I thought I would see what I could do with them. 🙂

Minimalist Decor

First off, this skybox is a free group gift from Diamandis. It is just the one room, with a white “privacy” box around it, but if you’re looking for a sleek office or living space, give this box a try. It comes with recessed lighting above the fireplace and brick wall, as well as some baked-in shadows. I was somewhat disappointed that the fireplace doesn’t work, but… it is what it is. And it’s free, so no complaints.

Shutter Field and Decor Junction have collaborated again, this time with the sofa, chair, and coffee table you see here. Both the sofa and chair include animations for singles and the sofa for couples. You can find these items in black, as well as brown leather, at The Crossroads Event.

The Challenge for Builders is back this month, and the theme is “minimalist/simple.” I really liked the Ball Lounger from 22769 ~ [bauwerk], and it’s available in several different color combinations. I also liked the console table from [ht:home], as well as the wall-photos display from Black Tulip, to which you can add your own photos if you wish. Several other designers participated in this round, so be sure to check them out.

Oh! And if you messed up and forgot to send your Valentine a gift, Aphrodite Shop has some lovely roses out as a new release.

This month, I signed up for the brand-new decor subscription box, Deco(c)rate. I have to say, I was not disappointed! Lots of fun decor items were included, such as this adorable hideaway by 8f8. This post is titled after one of the included poses. 🙂

I had time to take a little nap in the cozy window. My clothes are by ISON, and are available at the current round of Collabor88.
