A Rich Indulgence of Textures in Second Life

Horrea Boscoreale (moderate)

This is going to be one of those posts where I really hope you click on the photos to see them larger and with more clarity.  I’m going to talk about textures and the joy created by somebody who not only must love them as much as I do but can use them to create something wonderful.

Horrea Boscoreale↑ surrounds you with rich, sensual and stunning visuals.  My camera work doesn’t even begin to show you how gorgeous this build really is.

There are  two different versions of historical, decadent and extremely indulgent environments on display.  Many of the pieces are available to purchase↑ but in a way which doesn’t detract from the experience – no for sale signs or posters.

The first is a replica of the room found in the ruins of a villa on the slopes of Mount Vesuvius.  The combination of frescos and mosaics is exquisite.

If you can tear yourself away from the wonders that were a Villa buried by an ancient eruption↑ you should walk through a portal to find a slightly more modern european hunting lodge.

Both bring you a sense of luxury and a design aesthetic that shows what you can do when combining a large number of fabulous patterns and objects to create a coherent scene.

I freely admit to being (among other things) a texture whore and I’m in awe of this designer’s ability to avoid shyness in their use and create “environments” that are so pleasing and sumptuous.

If you’re somebody who wants to do a special portrait, a fashion layout, take pretty pictures, purchase a special item for your home or just enjoy something fabulous – go visit Horrea Boscoreale↑.  It’s very very special.

  2. Syrah Xue creates some wonderful rich environments. We asked him to be Linden Home Designer of the Month a while ago – he took a small Japanese box home and transformed the interior into a Roman villa, With a cat.
