Not really any freebies in this one, but I know some of you like seeing builds & decor so I thought I’d put this up here. The build is Bauwerk‘s litttle warehouse skybox, which is Mesh (land impact of 44 prims) and features high ceilings, exposed ventilation and monumental florescent style lighting that is fully and individually controllable via a central panel. Notably the intensity of each fixture can be set so you don’t overpower the space with light, as is often the case. The build also makes use of large skylights and full length windows to bring quite a lot of natural light into the box.

I’ve tried to decorate as a sort of combined work/home space for an architect or engineer. There are some metal pieces here but also quite a lot of modern style wood sets, particularly from End of Daze, that soften the space quite a bit.

Almost all the fashion shown (and the hair from Exile) is from this month’s Mens Dept round, which ends this weekend. If you haven’t been yet, go check it out for lots of nice deals for men (plus some unisex stuff and furniture) before the July rounds rolls in.

For the decor fans there are amazing hunts on now and I’m sure some of you are already out doing them (Hello Lilith). The Four Walls hunt brings SL’s top designers offering up some excellent gifts that should fit well with your design schemes. Gifts cost 20l so you need to choose wisely. There are too many standouts to name them all, but some of my favorites shown below include a great dresser from Pilot, a cool lamp from Vespertine (one of three), Cheeky Pea‘s hockey items and a fun guitar prop/chair from Zinnias.

Two other furniture hunt options now underway are the Courtyard Hunt (Free) and Cold Winter Nights (10l) You can see previews of almost all the gifts on the various hunt websites.

The avi shown below is from Peau, a new skin store for men, and can be found for the super nice price of 55l at Fi* Friday (ends sometime Wednesday), which is  a great weekly source of edgy fashion.

I’ve wanted to feature Scarlet Creative’s Noelle Chalet for a while now. This lovely small house has an interesting mix of raw wood, exposed beams and glass with a modern twist and is available at a great price (50l unfurnished, 199l furnished). Beautifully furnished, the build was intended as a rustic mountain getaway and looks great surrounded by snow, but some of the design elements made me think it could also work well as a small hunting lodge, perhaps on the plains of Africa. I’ll show more of the build in a later post – if you are interested in seeing a demo though, follow the beacon from the landing point to the teleporter that takes you to Scarlet Creative’s discount area.

Some of the female clothes here are free gifts from the opening of the Zenshi Shopping district. Many of the stores there had gifts out, but they may not be available for much longer (in fact, the Faster Pussycat dress gift shown below seems to have been removed, but a different version was available for free at the time of publication). Also like every month there are some great items at Mens Dept – I particularly like gO‘s Morten pants and the unisex sweater from Sleepy Eddy – so don’t miss it (ends February 1).

Thanks as well to Ruby Vandyke of Rodeo Horse & Farm Animals for providing me with some mod versions of her rideables.
