Building and decorating frenzies.

Darkrodin's Sketchbook, sometimes called the Paper Village, finds its habitable spaces.

     For the past couple months, I have been remodeling several areas in the city of Accentaury. Some are mentioned in previous posts, but more recently, due to a suggestion by Lilia Artis, I am addressing the quarter called Darkrodin’s Sketchbook. There had been only a couple furnished houses in this cluster of charcoal sketch facades, the remainder of the buildings were simple hollowed cubes with textures inside and out, but not habitable spaces. That is different now. Most of the structures are finally accessible. Both Lilia and I are shopping like mad to furnish the new spaces. She brilliantly decorated the Parrot Troubadour Café and the Gemusy Market.

Lilia and I sit in a small corner of the Parrot Troubadour Cafe, between two
cat pastels made by Silas Merlin.

Gemusy Market. This old square is refreshed by Lilia's choice of a vegetable
and fruit market. Her birds and cats give it a realistic charm.

Gemusy Market looks onto the distant waterfall.

Silas Merlin's works (pastels and sculpture), which are to be found in many areas of the sim, have a dedicated showcase in the newly remodeled room called the Curious Butterfly.

Silas Merlin's works can be found at the Curious Butterfly.

Lilia also furnished the Stargazer’s Sanctuary.

     I’ve done a major remodel to the interior of the Library of Darkrodin, removing the waterfalls, opacifying the floor, rearranging the furniture, etc. Lilia will set up the little bookstand/snack area at the much enlarged opening onto North Shore. For now, I’m only posting pictures of the finished areas. There is more to come as spaces are filled. Make sure to have your sounds enabled when you visit the Parrot Troubadour Café, as Lilia has endowed the comfortable space with a number of parrots chirping pleasantly adding to the enchanting atmosphere she created.
