Iris Ophelia's ongoing review of gaming and virtual world style
If you're a fan of interior design in SL, hopefully you've already heard of Inspiration Book, a blog and virtual magazine dedicated to designing beautiful spaces in Second Life. Whether you have a mansion on the coast or a simple little apartment in the sky, there's no excuse for a virtual home that doesn't reflect your style as much as your avatar. All it takes is the right inspiration, and that's exactly what Inspiration Book provides.
Earlier this month Pitsch Parx released the second volume of Inspiration Book's magazine, which offers even more of what the blog is so well known for: jaw-dropping photography of stylish and comfortable virtual spaces, descriptions and prose worthy of the most high-end catalogues, and trend forecasts for popular styles and color palettes for this coming winter and spring season-- something that would be valuable even to those of us looking to redesign our real spaces.
Interested? Here's how to get a hold of your own copy:
You can take a look at Inspiration Book Vol. Nr II Part 1 and Part 2 online, or pick up an in-world edition to lay out on your virtual coffee table [SLURL]. Just be sure to check the Inspiration Book blog regularly between issues to keep up to date on all the latest trends for your virtual home (and to drool over Pitsch's latest pics!)Tweet
