Featured Designer and Modifier: Michael Curry

Michael Curry gives us a tour of his beautifully modified and decorated La Villita as well as some hints on how he’s created some elegant changes, partly by stealing bits from a previous home, the Briargate Cottage. Michael and his family members are now in the process of decorating the Gran Villa di Galli, giving it the detailed tweaking you will see in the pics below.

 “The different doors are from the Briargate Cottage.  Basically, I used 2 copies of the sculptie and sandwiched the glass (scripted root prim) in between.  The outer one was tinted to match the shutters, the inner was tinted slightly away from the pure white that it was on Briargate.  The trim around the doors is a couple of copies of a window prim, hollowed and cut.

“The living room area was left intact except for the doorway you can see on the left the door that goes out back. “

“The dining area is pretty much intact as well, except for the alteration of the doorway into the bedroom.  It was changed using a window prim and also the height was set to match the front door since they are so close together.  The door is a standard Briargate door, nothing tricky on that one.  An extra prim was added above the doorway, because the proportions didn’t cooperate with using a hollowed prim.”

“A bit of a closer shot on the front and bedroom doorways.”

  “In the bedroom area if you look at the mirrors you will see that a reflection of the room has been used as the mirror surface texture.  For some reason it doesn’t update when you walk in front of it though.  Maybe I should file a bug report with LL on that one?  😉

 “The fireplace area in the bedroom took on a significantly different look with a very simple mod.  I copied a wall prim and stuck it in the corner at a 45* angle and put the fireplace up to that.”

“The bathroom mirrors are modded to simulate a reflection as in the bedroom.”

Michael, thanks for taking us on a tour through your lovely home!
