Cozy Spaces

Happy Sunday! There’s something incredibly charming about smaller spaces— they radiate coziness, and it’s quite simple to create a full, inviting room with just a few pieces. With the help of my friend, Fay Starlight, we’ve assembled three delightful rooms using furniture and decor from the latest Anthology releases.

Cozy Spaces
Bazar – Kay Bedroom

The bedroom we designed showcases the Kay bedroom set by Bazar, which offers a complete suite for crafting a comfortable space. It includes a bed with an array of textures at your fingertips, as well as a classic fireplace that brings a slice of warmth and realism to the setting.

Moving over to the living room, we selected items from Blue Sky, another gem found at Anthology.

I spent many an hour visiting the latest events attempting to find that perfect new outfit. Alas, 75% of the time, my event shopping resulted in disappointment. I don’t know if it’s the demos the designers decide to use or if the efforts are just – bad. The pattern continues – I teleport to the current “Event Du Jour,” and an advert catches my eye. With the flick of my mouse, I would click that demo prim faster than you could say “Lindens.” Then, excitedly I would port home to one of my, err, seven Linden Homes and gleefully try the demo, and more often than not, the demo unveiling would reveal a horrible plastic-looking shirt with no depth or a skirt that was just..sad. But…not the Skin featured in the plethora of events: Oh My…Not the Skin.
