The 7th annual Home & Garden Expo begins tomorrow, and as ever it is going to be a HUGE event, raising funds for Relay For Life of Second Life. If you’re seeking a brand new virtual home, or looking for individual pieces to furnish your existing one, you’ll find everything INCLUDING the kitchen sink at the event. You have until September 28th to enjoy it, and you’ll need to take your time. There are 9 sims, featuring the work of over 85 creators!
I had a nosey and my first impressions are that there are a lot of shabby chic and rustic pieces this year (as well as more modern furniture and homes too)so if you like your home to rock a boho vibe you’d be wise to pay the event a visit. There are also a lot of traditionally styled homes too, more than I’ve noted in recent years, with greater more emphasis on period living and role-play too. It’s great to see how this event has truly evolved over the years , and there are plenty of wonderful items to appeal to every kind of avatar.
Here’s an example, this beautiful ‘Farm Chair- Eyeback’ has been lovingly crafted by Robin Sojourner, for her R (S) W brand. I absolutely adore the simplicity of this piece of furniture; it looks extremely effective with a fabulous worn texture, and would work just as well as a display item as it would a functional chair. Place it in a corner and pile high with books and candles, or you could choose to decorate it with this stunning fantasy piece from Robin, a ‘Dragonfly Dragon’. Both items have a land impact of 1. I’ll be featuring more items on these pages during the event but be sure to check out all the other bloggers who are covering this occasion, as well as the official Flickr group too!
