I will explain the title of this blogpost in a bit!
The other day I met Cain Maven, creator and builder of Maven Homes, at the Home and Garden Expo where I attended a discussion about bloggers and creators and how they could benefit from eachother.
Anyway, so Cain Maven was there and we had an interesting conversation and I got curious about his work – as I had to admit I had never seen his builds. The next day I went to his sim and looked at his homes and ..bam! There it was. A house, the Eco III..that I could not take my eyes off. Love at first sight. A totally different style than all my previous homes, but ..wow.
Now, I am not an avid decorator in SL. I spent ages last year to decorate my home and it has been unchanged ever since. I was in doubt..should I go through all the trouble of picking up my over 1K prims…landscaping the parcel, find stuff to make a new home again?
After a good night sleep, I went back to Maven Homes and bought the house. The unfurnished one. I had to. And so it began…..Hours and hours of going through my inventory, finding the right items to make this my home again.
Why do I love this new house so much? The design, the many large windows which allow me to play with shadows. The lack of innerwalls, so I can move around easily without bumping into walls, no stairs..and….the house is mod, so I could make the doors phantom (I cannot be arsed by clicking on doors to walk around) and I could cover the official frontdoor, which on my weird piece of land leads you into the rocks anyway.
I am still in the process of decorating but even without furniture the house is a delight. Marvelous textures, space and I love the little outdoor pool on the patio (which has some modest animations to sit).
It will take me weeks, I know..I know…, to really make it my home, but it is relaxing and ooh, did I tell you how much I love this build?
Ah yes, the blog-title! This house, I think due to the stoned walls and its general design, reminds me of that *cough* old tv series “The Brady Bunch”..I am odd like that I know..but maybe I am not the only one and hey, I loved that show!
