The past days I have been busy replacing my old skyhome for a new one. Because of the many, not always succesful…, modifications I did to the old skyhome it slowly turned into a sad, empty ruin. Besides that it was way too large for me, and I did not feel like rezzing a new one and start all over again with this huge space – I just wanted a smaller, cosier one. I use the skyhome for changing clothes, occasionally some ‘studio’ type of picture and since I am always alone I do not need a 2000 sqm for that :).
I looked around a bit and ended up, again, at Scarlet Creative whos style of sky-homes I really adore and I got the cosy ‘Saturday Morning Simple Mesh Skybox’, which has 3 levels in it, but is easy enough to navigate in.
The big challenge and painful task for me was ofcourse: removing the old one, keeping the Summer Room I have on top for extra studio, and rez the new one in the correct spot. If you know me, you can imagine this did not happen in one go…..and yes, I have worn the new home while hovering in the sky, I shot one into space and got two of them returned due to rezzed on Linden Property. But….after some hours and lots of coffee and cigarettes, this is the result:
The next thing was: decorating my new sky-home! I am really not good in decorating, I have plenty of ideas and I even dare to say I have some good taste, but my goodness…I keep moving stuff around, rezzing and taking back in inventory….doubting and doubting.
I used stuff I already had in inventory, so no shopping in between and for now this is it. I may add some more the coming weeks, months. Or not. I have more than enough prims left to use, so that is not the issue, I just need some more inspiration and patience. I admire those in SL who have beautifully decorated homes, with details everywhere, and I know for lots of people it is their way of relaxing and enjoying SL. Decorating a home, makes me nervous!
