As all of my regular readers know I’m a huge fan of Ria Bazar-Mavendorf’s work. I’ve been blogging Ria’s items now for well over a year, and each release is consistently awesome, with fabulous builds, textures and innovative features carefully blended to create some of the best furniture in the virtual world. The ‘Floria’ series has been a particular delight, combining elegant textures and fabrics together in a classical style with a gentle, modern twist, and the latest addition to the collection is no exception. The Floria Bathroom is one of the most extravagant bathrooms experiences you can have in Second Life and comes complete with mesh components full of options that will help you to engineer the perfect bathroom for your virtual home. Like all of the Floria range the bathroom is texture change so the units can be altered to whatever finish you see fit with the same wood characteristics and colours that were previously used in the range.
This makes it an especially nice choice for en-suite bathrooms, particularly if you already have the Floria Bedroom.
The quality is of course paramount, and the selection of accessories chosen for the set is rather brilliant too. There are matching sink units, with a mirror and accessories for him and her. There’s a decorative shelving unit which is ideal to place above the pedestal, especially because it features an air-freshener! There’s even a loo-brush and a toilet paper holder too. All the fixtures are further enhanced by a golden gleam courtesy of the metal colour deployed across the range which is applied to pipework, door-knobs and other fittings. The star of the show has to be the tub. It’s a huge, claw-footed tub ideal for two to relax in and is brimming with options. For a start, you can choose soapy water, romantic rose-petals or even a fabulous bubble-bath to luxuriate in. Not only that but you can rez a bath rack that has everything you need for your perfect bath-time experience. Choose from a book, carefully propped so that you won’t get the pages damp, a bottle of wine or a shaving mirror with bath-time creams and unguents to enjoy. There’s a menu teeming with animations for single males or females, and there are couple poses too, which I really enjoyed. These are perfect for romantic moments with your significant other, and all the poses can be easily adjusted. I really like the option to rez candles around the tub; add the rose petal option and you’re all set to take advantage of the Adult only options that are available..
It’s not just the tub that is full of animations either; the sink units have options such as brushing and drying your hair or having a shave, each one rezzing the right appliance for the job. And if you need to use the loo, you can do so in comfort whilst reading a magazine. A novel and very amusing touch indeed! To finish the set there’s a side table brimming with towels and bath treats as well as a beautiful candelabra with four flickering candles to add a touch of opulence to proceedings. There’s even a lovely screen to help protect your modesty too.
The Floria Bathroom is a wonderful addition to all of the ‘Floria’ range from Bazar, but will work in any virtual abode or skybox where luxury and low-prim count are key.
And don’t forget, there are no tide-marks or mess to clean up after all the fun, and you’ll have LOTS of soapy fun with this, I promise…*ahem*
