That 8th sneaked up on me this new year, but it has proven to be a tremendously impressive Collabor88 thus far! Kicking off 2013, the blogger team of Collabor88 were honored with creating this months palette for the designers. With rich emeralds, golds and hues of copper and soft woods, it definitely has a crisp new feel to it which is just perfect for a new beginning.
I was very pleased to see a lovely skybox by PILOT this round which I am leaving on my sim for good. The simplicity of it is just perfect and the beamed ceiling adds something completely fresh yet classic to the structure. The tones are warm, inviting and offer a great canvas to brighten it up or keep it tranquil. Hardwood floors and bay windows add to the crisp clean feel, making this a structure with endless possibilities.
Cheeky Pea creative genius Isla Gaelach never ceases to impress me with her furnishings and decor. The Ansel set for Collabor88 is inline with this lovely fresh, crisp feel for the new year. With an emphasis on lighting, subtle to charming, the tonal qualities of the furnishings and decor truly bring to mind an Earthen feel, which for me equals cozy and safe. The exceptionally detailed atrium is rather mesmerizing and brings life to this room in a rather magical way. Rustic tables to place old well worn and loved books, candles and the like speak of a home that is lived in rather than a museum to just admire. The seating come in two types; PG & ADULT, and each packed with tons of smooth lush animations. Original mesh at its absolute best, a staple in Cheeky Pea creations.
My favorite item from this round of Collabor88 is the Intrigue Co.’s Oz mobile. The rainbow makes me think of my Gabriella, and the whimsical quality simply gave me a reason to grin. I will be relocating the mobile to a very special room that is being decorated this month for a very special collaboration between Gabriella and myself. More on that in the weeks to come!
Have a wonderful week and be sure to set aside some time to shop this months Collabor88.
