may / june 2016 - newsletter


Ready for Summer. . . We are halfway through our issues for 2016 already! How times flies when you are having fun. These past few months have been full of activity as always and we are very happy to share with you our latest labor of love, the May/June 2016 Issue. In this issue we feature Kiana Writer and her brand MadPea Productions and also get a scoop on her latest project, Interior Design store B ackBone. Kiana has been an active member of Second Life速 since 2007 and MadPea alone is one of the most respected and unique companies on the grid. Her work is amazing and we are excited to see what is in store for the rest of this year. We also sit down with Cari McKeenan of Little Branch, a designer who continues to make our landscapes more and more beautiful each day. Not only that, we also have as always a ton of interior and outdoor design to get you inspired for the upcoming Summer season. Whether it is a romantic beach setting, a tropical sunroom or an opulent lounge, we have it all! As always, thank you for your continued support and we hope you enjoy the work that has gone into producing these pages. Love to Decorate!

A NOTE FROM THE EDITOR

42

may / june 2016 - editor’s note


R... Can you feel it? Summer is coming, well at least here in my country it is. We had some wonderful weather in the start of May - dresses, flip flops and yes, I have already been caught by the sun and it gave me a sunburn but now it seems like the summer weather is gone. For the people who don’ t know me, I actually don’ t like summer in it’s full glory. We all know that, sweating while simply sitting, full beaches, restaurants etc but even though the summer and I will never be friends. I love him for the reason that spending time outside is so much more comfortable and enjoyable. So since the weather is not so graceful right now, looking forward to the upcoming issue gives me back these feelings of what I like about summer. So I am happy that even though we did not plan on a ‘summer’ issue, the May/June issue has lightly become one. In the start, we did not had summer in mind but now that I see the whole beauty. The only thing that comes to mind is the sun, being outside and enjoying nature but so often time does not allow us to do the things we would like to do… stress at work, issues, issues and more stress. So in our feature ‘Tropical Island’; the Stylists worked on bringing that tropical vacation feeling to their homes and which allows us to take a five minute break from the constant busy life we lead. The same goes for our ‘ Beachtime’ feature, where our Stylists created lovely scenes for the same purpose to just have a break from everything or to simply spend a lovely day with friends or family. I can now write a lot about our features, but I think that would just take away the excitement from browsing. To keep it short, we go from ‘Opulence’ to calm and modest ‘ Window Treatments’ over to kitchen spaces that actually were not made for them. Also be excited about our two part Community Spread, where we feature The Community Spirit of one of the largest places (and I just talk for myself) that I know in Second Life®: The Grove Country Club Estates.

I hope you will enjoy this issue, and thank you for reading and supporting us.

Whether you have just joined Second Life® or been here a while, there are a few brands that seem to be very much universally known around the Community. One such brand is most definitely MadPea who have established themselves not just for their beautiful Sim designs but their games, puzzles, hunts and events they have going on around the grid. Whether you have just joined Second Life® or been here a while, there are a few brands that seem to be very much universally known around the Community. One such brand is most definitely MadPea who have established themselves not just for their beautiful Sim designs but their games, puzzles, hunts and events they have going on around the grid.

participations. Below are some of her answers to some questions I myself was dying to ask about this exciting new brand as well as MadPea in general.

The Interview, UNIA, Sanity Falls and various charity auctions we have seen around Second Life® are just a few examples of some of the different projects or hats so to speak, that MadPea occupies within the community. The reputation that has been established seems to have taken Second Life® by storm making it nearly impossible to miss some of the amazing work that MadPea has done within the grid. I have had the opportunity to chat briefly with the Head Honcho and Driving Force, Kiana Writer, about some of her own experiences within Second Life®, favorite items and also the brand new brand “Backbone” that is being sold at different events around the grid as we speak. Within my own Second Life®, I have much admired the MadPea team for the work they have managed to do on the grid. Most when they join Second Life®, do have some idea of things they want to achieve and Kiana Writer was no different. While she never really thought it would be as successful a brand as it has become, the main goal for her was to “bring stories to life and sharing them with others”. She has managed to successfully do just this through various immersive games with the latest ‘The Interview’ really bringing huge audiences to experience the ultimate interviewing challenge. And this all from a woman who really had no management experience within Real Life or Second Life®, Kiana is now running a very talented team of freelancers within a virtual world. With time zones, different schedules as well as other Real Life commitments that her team may have, this is definitely not an easy task for anyone. She has really worked hard and fought for every opportunity as well as always surrounding herself with people who could see her vision and encourage her to achieve it. MadPea has already established itself not just for their amazing sim builds but also for their décor items. Kiana and her partner Rheinhard Kappler recently started another brand called ‘BackBone’ – so named to describe their own personal relationship. The goal is to create items that Kiana and Rheinhard themselves are searching for when decorating homes or even MadPea games and making items they personally enjoy. When asking Kiana about Backbone, I was able to find out more information on the thought processes behind the creations made as well as event

MadPea started out in 2008 with a different name - Beyond Imagination. Kiana was surprised that other than the Pot Healer adventure and the original Devil’s Labyrinth, there was really nothing comparable within Second Life® already. She states her goal was very much to “make a difference and push the envelope a bit more and give people something challenging, fun and different to do. I had no idea then that it would grow to this level, I started completely from scratch, didn’t even own a credit card to be able to invest any money into this. And that’s what I love about Second Life®, anything is truly possible here, as long as you believe in it.” The name change from Beyond Imagination moved to MadPea because it describes the limitless chest of oddities and bizarre things that is Kiana’s imagination! As mentioned before, there is a new decor brand on the horizon which is a bit more Personal to Kiana and her own partner Rheinhard Kappler called BackBone. The project is very much based on both these amazing shareholders following trends and really focussing on the items that inspire them in Real Life and incorporating it into the Second Life® work for us all to enjoy. This brand is currently available at different sales events around the grid including Cosmopolitan and 6th Republic. To try and get LTD readers a bit of a sneak peek into what is next for the MadPea and BackBone brands, I made sure to ask what we can all expect next. The answer was simple and something that certainly made me feel exhausted on their behalf. With both brands currently in 6th Republic, BackBone will be featured in a few more events in the upcoming months while MadPea will be shown off at The Arcade as well as two mini games and one larger, immersive one coming our way. This definitely sounds like there is some amazing things coming from MadPea! With so many businesses, designers and companies in Second Life® thriving currently, it is more accessible currently to get advice and information when you are even thinking of starting your own business in-world. Knowing how popular and well-known the MadPea brand is, I had to see if Kiana had some bits of advice we can all use within our own lives. When asked if there is something that she would like readers to know about herself she very much wanted to remind everyone that she is just like every single person who joins Second Life®. She is not a millionaire or have unconditional money to make projects happen. This is “nothing but an average single mom’s passion to make a difference to people

in Second Life® and make her dreams come true with a hell of a lot of hard work!” She suggests that the only way to succeed in a business inworld is by persistence and ensuring you know how Second Life® works by stating, “You must learn to be a resident first before you can be successful in business in Second Life®”. With Second Life® decor down to a fine art, and enough creativity to make projects happen, I really wanted to ask Kiana if she has a favorite piece of decor she loves to use - a must have so to speak and without hesitation she stated that she has a rug from Apt B that she uses in every project she possibly can! Lucky for me, I have that rug as well so I definitely agree with her on that one. With hundreds of successful games, hunt’s, décor work as well as breaking into the Real Life game making world, it seems like the MadPea brand just keeps getting bigger and better and have established themselves as one of the best Second Life® brands around. And I must say, after speaking to Kiana a little bit, it is not hard to figure out the secret to their success – hard work, dedication and a passion for wanting to really push the envelope consistently ensuring work is done in such a way that it breaks previously thought of limits in world. It is clear that Kiana is not just the driving force behind the brand but humbly she definitely credits her team of talented freelancers and the work that they do in growing and advancing the MadPea brand in Second Life®. With BackBone clearly befitting the name it has been giving, perhaps it is even more fitting considering that MadPea has surely become a very vital BackBone within Second Life®.

Cari McKeenan likes a good challenge. The creator and owner of Little Branch constantly pushes himself to offer the best, most unique mesh products to customers. Anyone who has seen the lush design of a Little Branch tree, flower or field of grass and the painstaking attention to detail, can see the effort in the craftsmanship. That is why Little Branch is one of the fastest growing home and garden decor stores in Second Life®, and they don’t even have an in-world location yet. But success has not changed Cari one bit. In fact, the mysterious and charming designer is greatly humbled by it all. “We have a big in-world group. For each new release about 20 volunteers give feedback on new items. If the item passes their test, it becomes part of the Little Branch marketplace store.” Full disclosure. As I chatted with Cari, I sat beneath the gorgeous lemon tree he created. I placed it in my yard not too long ago, along with a few of their birch trees, and love how it has accentuated my little homemade garden. We ended up discussing how residents of Second Life® deserve to have beautiful pieces for their outdoor landscapes. So many of us spend so much time working inside our homes or businesses that we forget to spruce up the outside. “I always liked exploring themed sims,” Cari said. “But the trees in Second Life® were a little disappointing. So my first idea was to create mesh ones. We started with a simple tree and then made them with a seasons change feature.” That feature is so easy to use. Really. With only a few clicks you can seamlessly change from winter to spring to summer and autumn, creating dreamy, realistic gardens. Take, for example, the birch trees I mentioned. The highly detailed bark and leaves with realistic textures look great from any angle and is perfect for photography or just sitting, relaxing and admiring. And here’s a fun little nugget that Cari shared with me. They’re working on a feature that makes the branches sway with a smooth wind effect. And that isn’t the only effect Little Branch has up their sleeve. Projects in the works include trees with falling leaves, falling fruit and, wait for it, falling coconuts. “I’ll keep a watchful eye out,” I joked. “Yes!” Cari laughed. Little Branch has its sights set on more than just trees though. They want to expand their landscaping offerings with mesh waterfalls, mesh rocks with realistic textures, rolling hills and mesh beach landscapes. I know I won’t be the only one waiting for those hit the marketplace. “This isn’t an easy task,” Cari laughs. “It can take between one day and five months, depending on my mood or inspiration.” When we spoke, Cari was in London being inspired by the city’s beautiful parks so I playfully mentioned that I’ll be expecting a London-themed landscape soon. Cari displayed more of that mysterious charm when he answered. “It is coming out for one the upcoming events but I can’t say what the name is now. It’ll be a mesh park kit, with playgrounds, etc.” Duly noted. While we wait for the next generation of mesh goods, Little Branch is featuring many of their current items at events across the grid, including FaMESHed, The Chapter Four and Shiny Shabby. Cari is also proud that Little Branch participates in charity events, recently sponsoring the 2015 Relay For Life Home and Garden Expo. They will be featured at the upcoming The Courage Event, which is a two week fundraiser to benefit the Canadian Red Cross for victims affected by the wildfires that destroyed hundreds of thousands of acres of land in Alberta.

I treat my customers like friends,” Cari said. And they, in turn, treat Little Branch like family, nominating the store for several awards including the 2015 AVI choice for Best Landscape Store. “I didn’t even tell anyone to vote for us. I was really surprised with the results and it made me want to work harder for them.” The answer was a coy “yes.” “Many people want this so badly.” Okay, I’ll bite, what is it? “The majestic wisteria. My customers deserve it. And, I like the challenge.” Stunning is the only thing that came to mind and I couldn’t possibly do a majestic wisteria justice by reducing it to a several word description so I urge you to hop on Google as soon as possible. And then wait with impatient anticipation for Little Branch to inevitably announce when it’ll be released. As my time with Cari started to wind down I mentioned how fantastic it must be for him to see how much Little Branch has grown is such a short time. “You must be so proud,” I said. “The only thing I’m proud of is seeing my items used by talented photographers, builders and residents. They make them look great with amazing scenes. My goal is to make Second Life® look better so everybody can have a chill time and a good chat with friends.” Glancing up at the pretty lemon tree I’d been sitting under, I couldn’t agree more.

Opulence ARTICLE BY MAE DELVALLE / STYLING BY LAUREN MINUET / PHOTOGRAPHY BY JORDAN GIANT


Richness, abundance, fortune, luxury, lavishness, prosperousness, affluence, plenitude, splendor‌ whatever synonym one uses, whichever of these abundance of words one chooses to use it all goes back to the same concept: opulence. The word may be possible to apply to a number of things, but what one thinks of immediately when the word opulence is heard, would most probably be decor. A crystal chandelier, a marble foyer, a carved wood table, a velvet sofa, gold foils framing mirrors or paintings, leather adorned armchairs... or scenes from back of our minds like Marie Antoinette draped over a chaise with her oversized hairdo and pastries in her hand while a silk gown drapes around her; an oil magnet sitting in his study, on his leather chair at his carved dark wood desk, with his cigar in hand; a Roman Patrician standing by a statue and a gold candelabra, conversing over mulled wine; King Henry VIII in his brocade pants and ornate doublet discussing matters with courtiers in a chamber adorned with tapestries; a Hollywood mansion foyer decked with rich marble, a large bouquet of roses in a large fine porcelain vase in the middle, sitting on a glass table with wrought iron legs... we could continue this list for another two pages and still not finish what can be considered opulence. No matter what word is used to explain the meaning of opulence, in what dictionary, there is always an air of excess, profusion, exaggeration. No matter how exaggerated one might think opulence is to be, when used in decor there is an awe-striking quality to it. Faced with the lavishness that is called opulence, one cannot help but feel amazed. There are many ways of achieving opulence, though it is safe to assume gold, marble, carved wood, rich fabrics and the like never fell out of favor. There was a time when aluminum was the most valued metal of all, because it was so difficult to find, or produce. Napoleon III, the first president of the French Republic, used to serve state dinners in aluminum plates. Gold and silver were used for lesser ranks. That is of course, methods of producing large quantities of aluminum were invented. Whether it is aluminum, or gold, we humans will always want the rarest of possessions because for as long as we can tell, human kind wanted the best of everything, wanted more of everything and wanted to show it off too. If one had riches, those riches had to be seen for they helped communicate the importance of a person. The ways of showing off may have changed in time but some things remain the same. A rich lifestyle is indicative of wealth, power, status, which are things human beings have been chasing after forever. Having said that, we must remind, a lavish decor does not require as large amounts of money as it once did. There were times when showing off status symbols were used in excess, and screamed ‘there is power and money here!’ but in our day, opulence can be more indicative of style than status symbol. The word itself might bring to mind scenes from movies or photographs from magazines with Kings and Queens on thrones, nobles in mansions, rich businessmen in cigar lounges and such, but it is not so anymore. Sure, it takes an effort to achieve the look, but it does not require as much wealth anymore. It is possible to have some semblance of opulence for people of many income levels. Gold leaves on mirror frames do not really have to be gold anymore. Wood carvings do not have to be hand-made anymore. Silk does not have to arrive from faraway lands anymore. The list of examples could be extended. A good find in a flea market, something gathering dust in an antique store corner, a piece on sale because it is the last one left, an accessory unexpectedly appearing in a department store all make achieving an opulent style of decor easier for everyone. Still, there is an effort to be made. Deciding on the design, finding all the right pieces, hunting them down, waiting to locate that last piece necessary and spending real life money on it are all part of (continued on Page 103)

any decor idea, but more so in specific styles such as this. Here come our saviour Second Life® to the rescue. The obvious advantage of financials aside, our virtual world brings us almost unbounded opportunities to have what we cannot have in our real lives due to various obstacles, be it financial or other. We can have all the crystal, all the gold, all the marble, all the velvet, all the wrought iron we want in our homes and gardens here. We can be as lavish, as opulent as we wish to be. When speaking of decor as such, one cannot help but think of mesh, as usual. Yes, yes… we have all spoken of mesh so many times and how amazing, marvellous, wonderful it is but… do you not think it is deserved? That wrought iron chair you want in your garden is here and looks wonderful in all its detail because of mesh. The chandelier lighting up your living room is flickering with those candle-like bulbs have those beautiful pearl details on it because of mesh. Every piece you look close enough at, will remind you why you love mesh, as we do. Now, to give props where needed, we cannot leave out the amazing talent that are the creators in Second Life®. They make our dreams come true with their constant struggle to achieve the best, the most realistic creations, and sometimes bring us things we did not even know we needed, but turn out to be that one piece completing our decoration efforts. Lush flowers in the right vase is easier to find in our virtual lives, the kind of fabric we want for our chair, the color we want for our sofa, the type of porcelain we look for in urns, the right look for the wall on the clock, the soft, floating drapes we picture dressing our windows… it is all easier, it is all readily available to us on Second Life® thanks to all the creators striving to do their best. Did you want to go all out and replicate the throne room in that movie you loved? You probably can here. Grab the throne from a multitude of alternatives, find a fitting build to drop it in, look for the right drapes in velvet, and tapestries in lively colors, and candelabrum with candles in whatever color you want. Did you want to recreate the baroque Venetian bedroom in that museum you like? Oh yes, you most certainly can try. You will need a lot of gold for this one but yes yes… one bed with rich damask fabric covering the headboard as well the bed spread, one chair with gold foiled frame and legs, one carved wood half-moon table by the wall and a mirror above it, one sideboard with matching wood, and do not forget the damask covered wall panels. There. You have yourself an 18th century bedroom. You probably cannot replicate the baby angels all over the ceiling but maybe that is better. They might be a little creepy to sleep with. Wait… did you want something simpler? Not so much gold, or damask but still opulent? Wonderful! You are in luck. Things just got much easier. Would you want to try a black elegance or a lighter floral look? Because you can do it all. You can have a lavish room set with dark furniture, dark accessories, and vibrant flowers to give a little more life to it. You can also go much lighter with whites, greys and blues, keep it calm but still impress with your choice of detail and luxury. You can go as colorful or as calm as you want. possibilities are endless. We have a chance to be as excessive, as opulent as we want. One can live in a lavish palace or simply decorate one room with quieter opulence to have some flair. One can show off all one wants. Dropping roses in hat boxes, draping a room with lace curtains, putting gold accented boxes one on top of the other, crystal candelabrum over fireplaces, floral walls… all possible. You will not have to search high and low for the right pieces, you will not have to spend huge amounts of money, you will not even have to make sure it is not excessive, because here you have a chance to be as excessive as we want. All you have to do is decide how crazy you want to go with it, and you will be able to do it here on Second Life®. Be it living in a medieval palace or hiding a baroque room in a simple cottage, show off all you want, and let them call you extravagant. We know it is actually opulent and we know being a royal in your own right feels good.

The Grove Country Club Estates ARTICLE BY SISTERBUTTA RESIDENT / PHOTOGRAPHY BY LULU JAMESON


A Sense of Place: The Grove Country Club Estates. Why do 27 million people visit Paris each year? Is it world-class restaurants with 12-month wait lists for a table? Museums bursting at the seams with great works of art? Countless landmarks that chronicle the city’s shifting place in Western civilization? Or is it the seemingly effortless chic of Parisians as they go about their daily life? The food, the fashion, the fountains are only window dressing. It is Paris’ sense of place that draws people whether as residents or tourists and makes Paris our planet’s most popular destination. As in the physical world, a sense of place can be elusive in Second Life® but it is immediately recognized when one stumbles across it. Urban or rural, hip or homey, fantasy-based or historical re-creation, a sense of place is the hallmark of regions that call us back and urge us to linger, put down roots and become part of a community. It is what makes our virtual surroundings worth caring about. Second Life®’s The Grove Country Club Estates is one such place. One of Second Life®’s premier residential communities, The Grove covers 13 full regions and offers amenities you won’t find anyplace else. Landscaping is layered and lush, with nature’s exuberance gently guided by skilled and sensitive landscape architects. Private residences, stores and public buildings—each one-of-a-kind—are sited to take good advantage of views and ensure privacy. Inter- and intra-sim travel is via broad avenues and waterways that seamlessly connect and integrate the different regions in a virtual Grand Tour reminiscent of those coming of age journeys of long ago when travel was something to be savored instead of endured, and “yellow brick roads” just might lead you to wizards who orchestrate the magic. The Grove’s owner Crito Galtier most definitely is something of a wizard. Soft spoken and welcoming, he presides over The Grove with grace, good humor, and an unfailing commitment to make the experiences of The Grove’s residents and visitors surpass all expectations. A master of customer-centricity, Galtier and his team’s efforts revolve around rapidly assessing and responding to each resident’s vision for the ingredients he or she wants to incorporate into their residences and then calling on the team of talented designers and builders who in the words of Star Trek’s Captain Pickard “make it so.” This kind of collaboration between owner, builders and residents creates residences that are both suited and sited to their environments. Each is one-of-a-kind, yet each also fits within its surroundings seamlessly and of a whole. Meeting with me in the home he shares with his husband Preston Galtier, Crito shared his insights, including a glimpse into what he and his team have planned in coming months. LTD: The quality of everything I have seen as I have explored The Grove is outstanding. How do sustain that level of excellence over 13 regions and what is your favorite aspect of building? GALTIER: I only know the very basics in building. I can make a box, but that’s my limit! I have builders that make my dreams come true. Two builders here at The Grove take care of the day to day stuff and work with residents to incorporate their residences within the community. Other builders take on special projects, like our new retail sim, La Tarraza. LTD: So you gather your team of creative builders together and turn them loose with the “canvas?” GALTIER: Exactly! LTD: Tell me a bit about La Tarraza. You mentioned it’s new, but walking around the sim it felt like it has always been there and that it has grown as the overall community has grown, with merchants added in response to the resident’s needs and desires.

GALTIER: The new shopping area opened on April 2nd of this year. It was designed and built by Kimmera MadisonCorreia. Already, it’s home to 14 stores, a neighborhood pub, and three venues for weddings and receptions, art shows, and private parties as well as community events. A restaurant will soon open. Offering sophisticated outdoor seating, it will be a great place to socialize with friends, people watch in style and listen to great live and streamed music. LTD: I can definitely see myself sitting at one of the tables in the courtyard, taking in the sights at my leisure before setting off to explore the shops. There are some old friends among the stores such as Patron and Tres Beau and several that are new names to me, including your husband’s by Galtier Wedding and Event Planning and MacLinton’s Pub and Games. With a four-lane bowling alley, Texas Hold ‘em and at least a dozen other multi-player card games, MacLinton’s has every other neighborhood “watering hole” I’ve visited in Second Life® beat by a mile! GALTIER: We don’t do things by half-measure, that’s for certain! It’s part of our mission and reflects our community spirit. The Grove attracts many of Second Life®’s long-term residents. They are creative individuals who can choose to live anywhere on the grid but come here for the privacy, the beauty of our surroundings and neighbors who share that sense of being part of an established community of real people living genuine lives in a virtual environment. It is that feeling of being part of a community that looks out for its members that makes me most proud. LTD: That sense of community you describe is also the key, I suspect, to longevity in the inherently ephemeral environment of virtual reality. In the physical world, places like New Orleans’ have survived hurricanes and their aftermath because of the strong sense of community in many of its neighborhoods. People come together to build, rebuild, and weather the storms—physical or digital. GALTIER: A fair analogy. If you have a genuine community, people do come together and hold together through whatever comes their way. When people first consider making their home here, they are sometimes taken aback by our long and detailed covenant. It’s a long read! But it expresses a coming together among individuals to create bonds of friendship as well as residency. It is that sense of coming together that inspires me to make my dreams for The Grove tangible for all our residents and visitors. I hope the readers of LTD Magazine enjoy learning about us and can take the time to visit several of The Grove’s “must sees.” Some of Second Life®’s most accomplished and creative citizens chose to make The Grove their home within Second Life®. In the next issue of the magazine, we will meet several “at home” in this unique community. For now, put on your best travel outfit and use the landmarks below to travel to a few memorable destinations within The Grove. Landmarks: The Grove Country Estates - Seaside Park Drive The Grove Country Estates - Woodland Park Amphitheatre Chapel at La Tarazza at The Grove Country Estates The Grove Country Club Estates - La Tarazza Retail Area The Riviera Estate at The Grove Country Club MacLintons Pub and Games

Manis Lane


ARTICLE BY EDITORIAL CLARITY STYLING BY MANIS LANE PHOTOGRAPHY BY JORDAN GIANT

In April, Jake Vordun of Fancy Decor began promoting a decorating contest that would be held in front of a live audience and the winner would not only be crowned champion, but would receive great prizes. LTD immediately became involved in this wonderful idea and donated $10,000 prize money and a spread in the May/June 2016 issue of the winning design, and here it is. Manis Lane progressed through each round to ultimately win the first ever Fancy Decor Battle. To create a beautiful set takes time, and to do such great work in front of an audience close to 80, in under 45 minutes, is not only a challenge of ones abilities, but a fantastic and inspiring achievement. One which we wanted to share with our readers. On behalf of LTD, we would like to congratulate Manis and the other contestants on their participation, and the Fancy Decor team for holding such a contest.

100 Years o ARTICLE BY ROSALYN MACARTHUR / STYLING BY BRENT LOCKHEARST / PHOTOGRAPHY BY JORDAN GIANT


With Summer fast approaching and much of the general Second Life速 population coming from colder climates in Real Life, we all dream of waking up on a tropical island or beach looking at a gorgeous view of the sunrise over the ocean. With this general picture in mind it is time to flock to the stores or events here in Second Life速 searching for the perfect beach home and d辿cor items to create the beach, sand and surf as well as waves and enough palm trees that would put Florida to shame. Decorating your own tropical paradise has no guidelines or set rules with your creativity and restraints of your parcel being your only real limitation. With so many options in decorating that perfect relaxing tropical beach and many stores catering to different tastes, it is very easy to create your own personal style whether it be including other areas, gardens, forest or even really using accessories to make your own tropical area perfect. With the addition of activities, swimming, floating or even sailing, you can really make yourself at home on your own private beach. And even if you are not lucky enough to have a beach already provided on the land with some creativity and some terraforming you too can create a beach from scratch with the space you have available. Imagine waking up in the morning with a loved one (or not) the sunlight streaming into your bedroom window, Green palm trees littered and you can just glimpse the ocean as the waves come crashing into the sand with the smell of salt lingering in the air. This can be your own Second Life速 reality with just a little work and creativity too.

Bedtime Stories


Bedtime stories are tales as old as time. And what better way to let your mind be delighted, inspired and entertained than by melting deep into the fluffy, layered solace of a bed. Some choose to hold fast to a pillow while they’re whisked away on a pirate ship or flirting with the clouds on a magic carpet. And when it comes time to ward off the shadowy figure lurking in the distance, burrow beneath a soft, warm blanket for protection. A flashlight might come in handy as well, just in case. Creating a dreamy space has no limits in Second Life®. The ambiance can be as bright and cheery as a sunflower or as ethereal as a misty meadow at dawn. So settle into a comfy chair, curl those toes into the plush carpet and dim the lights. Gather quickly for the story is about to begin…
