Bellisseria Home of the Week – August 2020

The Home of the Week this month goes to *insert drumroll here* Carol Pixelmaid and her Wallower Houseboat. Now before I go into further detail I have to give you all a very important health and safety warning. If you are allergic to pink you may want to take a step back, don’t say I didn’t warn you!

Belli HotW August 2020 - Carol Pixelmaid

I love when people use the red option in the colouring of the houseboats. A friend once called them ‘murder boats’ when joking around once but I really love them.

Belli HotW August 2020 - Carol Pixelmaid

It’s always fascinated me what people do with the ‘back yards’ in the Houseboat regions. I have seen so many different things rezzed out as decor, most of them being boats of some shape and size. Carol’s boat wasn’t huge but it also wasn’t a little dinghy, and the extra deck from tarte definitely complimented her stylings.

Belli HotW August 2020 - Carol Pixelmaid

Carol added in some prims here and there to make extra decor pieces, one of them being this extension from the houseboat to the tarte deck; amongst others that I will point out later. Let’s head up to that top deck and check it out.

Belli HotW August 2020 - Carol Pixelmaid

It’s party central up here! That blue privacy wall is another of Carols added prims as is the pink DJ Desk. This is also just the beginning of the pink that I forewarned you all about.

Belli HotW August 2020 - Carol Pixelmaid

I was shocked when I started to write up the shopping list for this post that Carol hasn’t linked her items to save on prims. She’s managed to stock the houseboat full with singular items, colour me impressed!

Belli HotW August 2020 - Carol Pixelmaid

Ok, these love birds. Can we just stop and admire them for a moment. They are so stinking cute. I know one thing I’ll be adding to my shopping list after this little adventure. Carol used most of the space in this big one room boat for her living area. But I guess we don’t spend all our time in bed or or in the kitchen so it totally makes sense.

Belli HotW August 2020 - Carol Pixelmaid

But even with most of the room being living area she still managed to include a little study/entry area, a bedroom spot, a kitchenette AND a bathroom! I love the look of big fluffy blankets and plumped up pillows on beds, just makes them look so comfy and inviting.

Belli HotW August 2020 - Carol Pixelmaid

The divider wall behind the entry area is another addition from Carol. The little window spots in it really help with making it look a little more open and not closed off so much. And this hanging desk is perfect for those that want a desk area on their houseboat but don’t want it to take up a lot of room since space is limited.

Belli HotW August 2020 - Carol Pixelmaid

When we take a peek around the corner we get a glimps of the kitchenette area and the little bathroom hiding behind the divider wall. I’d definitely want to close that door and hang some privacy curtains when having a bath though, so as not to scare the neighbours if they happen to walk past.

Belli HotW August 2020 - Carol Pixelmaid

The view from the back door certainly helps you appreciate Carols love for pink. I think this is the first time I have ever seen a pink fridge!

Belli HotW August 2020 - Carol Pixelmaid

Did you ‘Find Waldo’ while scrolling through? Not Waldo exactly but there was a Belli Home Spotlight sneaking around in the background of one of the pictures. I guess I should have said ‘Find Belli’. Thank you Carol for letting me come and snoop around your lovely houseboat.

Bellisseria Home of the Month – July 2020

Our home of the month for July belongs to Lea (Costo17 Resident) with her quaint little Traditional Adams house.

Belli HotM July 2020 - Costo17 Resident

There’s a nice spattering of grasses around the house and the glow of the fire against the back wall made it feel very cozy.

Belli HotM July 2020 - Costo17 Resident

I was super surprised when I first walked into Lea’s house because the garden was brought inside! It’s not something I’ve come across yet in my travels but It looked pretty amazing.

Belli HotM July 2020 - Costo17 Resident

You’ll notice Lea has kept it very matchy matchy using the same trees and grass in each room. But I love the uniqueness of pulling the leaves off and using the trunk piece, as shown here in the kitchen, and then using the leaves in the bedroom to plaster to the roof and walls to make it look like the trees are taking over.

Belli HotM July 2020 - Costo17 Resident

There’s a very neutral, warm colour scheme throughout. The living area is quite long but Lea has made it feel small and cozy, without filling it to the brim.

Belli HotM July 2020 - Costo17 Resident

This little window dining area being right near the back door means you get the glow and warmth of the firepit in the backyard to spice up your meal. The tree in the middle of the long room almost acts like a room divider screen as well.

Belli HotM July 2020 - Costo17 Resident

Here’s that backyard fire pit I mentioned; and an outdoor bath! Why not be at one with nature and soak in the tub by the firepit and stare up into the skies counting stars. Loving the glow of the firepit against the tub too.

Belli HotM July 2020 - Costo17 Resident

I think my favourite room of the house was the bedroom. There was this tiny little birds nest on the bed that I almost overlooked upon my first walkthrough; then this cute little fox darted out from behind the bushes and surprised me.

Belli HotM July 2020 - Costo17 Resident

You can go visit Lea’s house and take in all the greenery that surrounds and fills her cute little home.

Bellisseria Home of the Week July 2020

This month we are featuring homes from the Traditional category and our first showcase is from Maiden Constantine with her Winchester House. She’s named her parcel “That 70’s House” and she sure has lived up to that name, as you’ll see when we get to the interior pictures.

Belli HOTW July 2020 - Maiden Constantine

I’m loving the overal open viewing of the backyard; and you will see why further along in the blog.

Belli HOTW July 2020 - Maiden Constantine

Maiden added a little outdoor laundry room in the backyard and I think it’s just adorable!

Belli HOTW July 2020 - Maiden Constantine

She’s not only taken advantage of the deck coming off the house fromthe back door, but also added in a raised deck at the back of the house for a larger entertainment area.

Belli HOTW July 2020 - Maiden Constantine

The first little deck area chairs just make me think of those horrible plasticy vinyl chairs from the 70’s that burnt the back of your thighs in summer when you sat on them after they had been baking in the sun for hours!

Belli HOTW July 2020 - Maiden Constantine

The larger deck area has some pretty fantastic views of her awesome location. This is just one view of the backyard showing the lighthouse in the distance and uninterupted ocean views.

Belli HOTW July 2020 - Maiden Constantine

Now we head inside, and what did I tell you; it’s a time warp back to the 70’s! You can just smell the mothballs already hahaha.

Belli HOTW July 2020 - Maiden Constantine

The busy print of the kitchen wallpaper with it’s matching yellow and orange kitchen cupboards are a sight to behold. If you grew up in this era, or have relatives that still live in an old house from the era, you’ll start to feel right at home.

Belli HOTW July 2020 - Maiden Constantine

Heading into the living room I just felt like pulling on a pair of flares and a fringe top and belting out “groovy baby, yeah”! This wallpaper is just… just, so very much 70’s!

Belli HOTW July 2020 - Maiden Constantine

There’s even a stack of TV dinner folding tables in the corner, macrame hanging from the wall and a doorway full of those noisy beads on a string.

Belli HOTW July 2020 - Maiden Constantine

When you head upstairs there’s frames on the wall of those those old nails and woven string art pieces, in very matching orange, yellow and brown colours.

Belli HOTW July 2020 - Maiden Constantine

While dowstairs was all very matchy matchy with its yellow, orange and brown hues; the bedroom throws it into overdrive with some added teals and greens. If you have a Winchest house currently you’ll notice this room is a bit different and it’s because Maiden has also taken advantage of one of themany Linden Add-ons that are out there at the moment. This one giving her a small walk in closet and a bathroom area.

Belli HOTW July 2020 - Maiden Constantine

And here is that lovely green I mentioned previously. Filling the bathroom with it. I love that the toilet seat has the look of one of those old fluffy seat covers. Do you remember those? Ahhhh the flashbacks this house is giving me is wonderful!

Belli HOTW July 2020 - Maiden Constantine

A 70’s bedroom just wouldn’t be complete without a king size bed draped with a gaudy busy print bedspread with matching pillow covers. You made your bed with hospital corners Maiden, so proud! haha

Belli HOTW July 2020 - Maiden Constantine

I had to finish the tour off with another picture of that fantastic view Maiden has from the back of the house. This time from the deck off the upstairs bedroom looking in the other direction at all the houseboats of other residents.

Belli HOTW July 2020 - Maiden Constantine

Maiden’s parcel truly is a keeper and if she ever decides to give it up, which I think she would be mad to, I’m sure it would go very very quick with views like it has. If you want to go check it out for yourself, she welcomes visitors. So pop on over and take a trip back in time.

Bellisseria Home of the Month June 2020

Can I just start with a HOLY COW SHEEP! The shopping list for this look took me forever to write up; the home featured this week is absolutely jam-packed!

Belli HotM June 2020 - Racel Salty

We end off June with our Home of the Month winner – Rachel Salty and her Grand View Log Home.

Belli HotM June 2020 - Racel Salty

I loved the contradiction as soon as you arrive at the front door with the “You can’t sit with us” sign on the left and “Welcome” sign on the right.

Belli HotM June 2020 - Racel Salty

Rachel made use of some of the plants on offer from the free chest of goodies you receive when ‘renting’ out a Linden Home. It was a nice dash of colour in amongst all the green.

Belli HotM June 2020 - Racel Salty

This really is a perfect spot for a log cabin. Nestled in behind all the trees for a semi private area, there’s a stream out front adding some distance between the neigbouring house and behind the house is a mountain and no neighbourse in sight.

Belli HotM June 2020 - Racel Salty

When you first walk in, there is a LOT to take in. And Rachel’s decorating style is very much a country hunting cabin in the woods style. Even though this house has a lot of decor items, it didn’t feel ‘over crowded’ or ‘too much’. Everything just went well together.

Belli HotM June 2020 - Racel Salty

I just love big old country wood fired ovens/stoves, so this one has been added to my shopping list for sure. There was so much to look at and inspect. I loved the little details; like the old rusty jello pans, stacked on the corner of the stove and a little candle near the sink that I almost overlooked.

Belli HotM June 2020 - Racel Salty

Then I turned around and saw a unique little surprise. There is actually a room behind that bookcase, which you would already know if you have seen the Grand View Log Homes already. But Rachel covered the doorway with bookcases and then stacked the shelves with little knick-knacks and books and even smoshed parts of two fireplaces together to create this seamless little wall insert. I love it!

Belli HotM June 2020 - Racel Salty

Heading upstairs to the bedroom, I had a little chuckle to myself when I spotted the vanity and it’s little bottles of nail polish and make up. One must have a perfect manicure when hunting! hehe

Belli HotM June 2020 - Racel Salty

The chunky old look of the country duvet just made me think of cold winters nights curled up beneath those heavy thick blankets listening to the hum of the electric heater in the corner and the owls talking to each other from the tree tops outside.

Belli HotM June 2020 - Racel Salty

Rachel, also, is taking advantage of one of the many Linden Home Add-ons that are out there with her bathroom area. I’m a big fan of clawtooth bathtubs. Anyone else find them fascinating for some reason? Oh look the neighbours left their door open, I wonder if they are watching the midday movie?!

Belli HotM June 2020 - Racel Salty

Once again Rachel has made sure to include all the little details. The roll of toilet paper, hair brushes, towels, blankets, soaps, lotions, sponges…..I have to go back to that roll of toilet paper – “Butt B clean”. Some creators have the best names for their products.

Belli HotM June 2020 - Racel Salty

Yikes, I think I need that Butt B clean! That’s one scary view from the toilet of what’s looming over the front door.

Thank you so much, Rachel, for sharing your home with us all. If you would like to go visit Rachel’s little slice of country charm, she welcomes you all, pop on over and say hi some time.

Bellisseria Home of the Week June 2020

It was a close call between Traditional and Log Homes for this month, but the Log Homes outnumbered the Traditionals. So to kick things off for our very first Home of the Week, I present to you all the home and stylings of Orfeu Miles.

Relax you say? Don’t mind if I do!

Orfeu has chosen to decorate the Grand View Log Home. Not only was the interior well laid out but there was also a decent spattering of landscaping items filling in the plot.

I like how the outdoor space was filled in with some Linden Home add-on pieces to make the deck appear larger instead of having all the furniture sitting on the grass.

Theres still ample grassed areas though; if you like your greenery. My one nit-pick moment when looking over the property was the raised borders of the original Linden Home decking poking through the new deck areas. But I guess when using third party add-on’s; sometimes you just have to deal with a few little OCD triggers.

I almost completely missed this little gardening area at the back of the property because there was so much to look at from the front. Definite great use of linking items together in order to lower the prim count and fit in more decor.

It did make it interesting when trying to credit all the furniture and decor. I inspected the linked parts and found a lot of ‘objects’ until I eventually came across the main prim with it’s item name in it.

While the outside area was full of decor pieces, plants and even wildlife; the interior rooms had just the right amount of furniture and decor items in them to not feel empty but also not be overdone.

I’ve never really understood the need for things like food or bathrooms in SL because, frankly, how often do they really get used? It’s not like we NEED to feed our avvies or bathe them; yet I myself MUST have a kitchen fully stocked and a bathroom in my own place when I decorate. Apparently so does Orfeu!

I love the giant windows of the Grand View home; and I like the idea of leaving them bare so as to appreciate the view of the outside world. Perhaps a potted plant or floor lamp to give it a little bit of oomph?

The cozy little fireplace in that nook is a nice touch. After visiting so many Log Homes from all the nominations received, it was nice to see the different way all the residents choose to decorate that half wall space along the staircase.

I saw quite a few ways to decorate this big open room upstairs. I got a ‘bachelor pad’ feel when reaching the top of the stairs because of Orfeu’s minimalist decor choices. No mess, no fuss, just the essentials.

Leaving those windows uncovered makes for a great view when waking up. Speaking of views; I didn’t notice until after I took my pictures that the wall art had a bit of nudity in it. My cover up looks like it totally belongs there, right?!?

We finish the tour with the use of another Linden Home add-on. This time making a small bathroom off to the side of the bedroom; again with a ‘bachelor pad’ feel to it. There is a tiny loo in there; it’s perched beneath the window we are peering into. The only thing missing was a basin; but I guess you could use the kitchen sink in a pinch!

Thank you so much for letting me have a tour of your home Orfeu. I hope all the readers enjoyed it vicariously through my pictures. Orfeu was kind enough to grant me permission in sharing the home location; so if you want to see it up close and personal you can! Just remember to be polite if you happen to TP in and the home owners are around.

Introducing the Bellisseria Home Spotlight Blog

The Bellisseria Home Spotlight is something new that will be starting June 1st, 2020. It’s a lighthearted little contest of sorts based on your home decorating skills. Some residents of Bellisseria have wonderful know-how on setting up their homes to their fullest potential, while others may be stuck for decorating ideas and not keen on snooping around on their neighbours. The Bellisseria Home Spotlight, on the other hand, loves to peep into windows and check out what others are decorating with and make a shopping list!

So to help each other out, and share your decorating prowess, we have introduced the Bellisseria House of the Week & House of the Month. Each month you will have a chance to submit your home for consideration. All homes submitted will be inspected and, if chosen, photographs will be taken. Your home will be featured here on the blog as either the House of the Week or the House of the Month. Just to make things a little fun, if you are a chosen for either of the categories you will receive a small plaque to display in your home for bragging rights with your friends, family and visitors.

The list will be cleared each month and because we are only choosing two for each month, we encourage you to enter again in following months if you don’t make is the first time. This way we will have a chance to get back to you another time.

Each month only houses from one category will be chosen. We will not be announcing the category at the beginning of each month as it will be based solely on the submissions. For example if we have mostly all Camping Trailer submissions, then only the Camping Trailers will be inspected and chosen that month. The following month we will choose a new category based on the most submissions received, and so on. If you win House of the Week for your Victorian home and then change your dwelling style to either a different Victorian with different decor, or you move into a Houseboat then you are eligible to enter again. You won’t be eligible to win for the same home/decor more than once.

So what are you waiting for? Get decorating! Once you are ready just click on ‘SUBMISSIONS’ at the top of the page and submit your house details.
