Whether you prefer English Cottage, French country or granny chic, having great pieces and some essentials will get you into the Cozey mood your Sunday truly deserves.
When I look at this scene, I feel like like I am looking at a picture of myself in a way. Soft feminine touches, dilapidated decor, worn out wood.
Mind you, I do not hold a candle to the talented pool of home and garden decorators we have in Second Life. But when the bug hits me, there are a few things I like to add to each scene:
1. Greenery, ‘live’ things: Ivy (always the ivy!), plants, flowers in vases/bottles/whatever, trees, grass, and shrubs! And even more trees!
2. Curtains: I’m always on the look out for drapery of any material, linen, chiffon, lace, heavy canvas, beads even.
3. Garlands: Vertical hanging works of art on twine…on string, heck on dental floss if you have some.
4. Rugs: You know how we have a thing for shoes? I also have a thing for rugs, and not just the ones that offer animations either.
5. Chandeliers: I rarely use lighting in my shots, but chandeliers/lighting fixtures help me to pull in my focus from the sides, seeing that I sort of take pictures in a dead pan kind of angle.
6. ‘Corner Clutter’: Tacky wording for sure. These are the fillers, the pretties, the bits and pieces that ‘fit into a corner’ i.e, candles, books, baskets, a sleeping kitten?
7. Signage: This is something I am actually in the process of collecting in world, so if you have any suggestions feel free to leave a comment in the box below.
Whichever style you frequent, Shabby Chic, Modern Contemporary, Industrial Rustic, Traditional or Classical, I find that having an ‘essentials’ type of list helps with the overall look and flow of a room. And when it gets to be too much, minimalism is always a nice vacation!
