It's finally a home

I'm pretty spoiled in SL. Not bratty spoiled [I think] but spoiled in that when I need something, someone is usually right there to do it for me.

As I've mentioned before, my good friend Noelyci built me a fabulous house back in April because I was in dire need of one and I'm exceptionally picky about most things. So he took my vague descriptions and built me a wonderful house that I simply adore. [You can buy it at his store too, along with lots of other nice prefabs. /end shameless plug]

But the problem was...I'm not good at decorating. I'm honestly not. My physical world house is just kind of there. I find something pretty, I set it down, and that's about it. No mesh to it. But no one really comes over so as long as it's clean, I don't care.

It was really bothering me that I was leaving this gorgeous house empty. Or semi-empty, as I've had bits and pieces of furniture and photos scattered about. But it just wasn't very well decorated, and it wasn't very me. Only I didn't know what I really wanted, and any shopping trips for furniture usually left me frustrated.

Enter my best friend Sophia. Yesterday she said she wanted to decorate a house or something. I told her that she could decorate my home if she wanted. I was casual about it, but inside I was actually jumping for joy because I so badly wanted this place done up.

I think she did an excellent job. :)

She knows my tastes and likes well. Nothing overly modern, and she picked up on my butterflies love. :) She also decorated my office, but I'm waiting to show that until I finish up in there, since I moved all my photos off the walls and put them in the dining area. Noel also built me a desk and some shelves because I couldn't find an office desk that I liked, so he put his skills to work for me again. See? Spoiled. lol

Oh, and the bedroom is my own to decorate. It's kind of like Graceland. No one goes upstairs unless I allow. :-p

I'm just so overly happy with how my house is now. I was spending most of my time in the house sitting on a counter. But most of the time I was just standing around outside. Now I'm perfectly happy sitting in my charming new living room or in my office. I'm so lucky to have friends like I do. <3
