Mayfair

Apple Fall has this amazing ‘Mayfair’ set out for the current round of the Arcade. Like his last ‘Paris’ set, I am loving the soft, vintage feel of the pieces that go beautifully with the oh-so coveted RARE Skybox. God only knows I had to play away my firstborn just to get it. But, it is so worth it! The Mayfair Skybox has three rooms off the main hallway- bathroom, bedroom and general living space. The textures are a little worn, a little vintage and super chic.

I finished furnishing my new bedroom with some more amazing pieces from the Arcade, including items from Second Spaces, Tres Blah and Pixel Mode. Really, if you haven’t managed to get in yet- keep trying! You can also cam-shop from the nearby Gatcha Galley sim as well!

I am also decked out new hair from Exile (for the Arcade!) and this new lazy Sunday inspired panty and tank set from Valentina E. Couture for the September round of fameshed. I thought it was a perfect match to lounge around the Mayfair suite. I love that it even comes with a robe that opens and closes with a simple chat command. Mesh is getting better and better every day.

The Arcade – September 2014

It’s so hard to believe that September is here and that fall is pretty much around the corner. Though the weather hasn’t started cooling off yet, it’s safe to say that fall is definitely among us, what with all the buzzing about the September (fall) round of the Arcade. With the big birthday round and the Arcade turning two this month, the designers that have been invited to participate have really knocked our socks off with some great new releases.

Though there weren’t as many apparel related items as I would have liked to see, I am nevertheless thrilled by the items up for grabs. One of my favorites this round, is the La Petite Joie Cafe Collection from 8f8. The build of the cafe itself is stunning. Warm, rich wood, amazing shadows and crisp textures. I especially love the skylight and how all of the windows can change between two version with just a click.

I spent two days decorating in and around my new cafe with some more of my favorite Arcade pieces. Well, as many as I could fit into one setting, that is. I even managed to squeeze in a few non-Arcade items as well, like this new release long modern sideboard from Molichino. With this being Aurelia’s first foray into furnishings, I must say I am suitably impressed by it and can’t wait to see what she comes up with next.
