Iris Ophelia's ongoing review of gaming and virtual world style

I'll admit that when we started accepting nominations for this list, I wasn't expecting nearly as many decor and design brands as were put forward, and frankly I've been relieved! Often home design in SL is literally pushed into the background, uncredited or unhighlighted, so it's always great to have an opportunity to showcase the work, the talent, and the flair that goes in to SL home fashions. Scarlet Creative is an excellent example in particular, because its clean style and modern design elements have made it very popular with the descriminating SL home buyer. In fact, Scarlet Creative is one of the first names on the lips of many style-savvy SL shoppers when it's time to shake up their house or skybox.

I'd say the most recognizable features in designer Charlotte Bartlett's recent work might be the wooden slats and the large windows she often uses to add texture and light to an otherwise plain surface. Little details like these add lot of drama and life to a room if you have shadows enabled, and really make her work stand out. Whether you're looking for a large modern skybox or a clean and cozy little house, Charlotte's shop is worth investigating!

We're blogging the top 20 brands in our Readers' Choice list. Stay tuned for the rest soon!

So a little different, but close.

Most or all of the newer stuff is mesh, so this looks like a good one to check out.

See a few furniture items that might fix 'issues' I have with the things currently in my SL house.

Thanks for the heads up.

The designer could do with adding some fully exterior shots of the prefab you've highlighted. Look great on the inside, sometimes get a corner of an outside view, but what's the whole outside look like? :)

One of the other prefabs:

- that's a shot that tells you "what might this look like on my land?"
