UPDATE: Do you adore decor?

Once upon a time, some people were chatting on Plurk (Add me!) about home decor. A Plurker reminisced about a time Alicia Chenaux's in-world group organized a home tour for members to show off their homes. So, I thought to myself, "Self, getting a list of people who want to be in a tour should be fairly simple. I can do this. Plus, self, you are nosy and want to get a peek into bedrooms and medicine cabinets!" 

As a result, I'm doing just that. The 2013 SL Home Decor Tour will take place from Friday Sept. 20 - Sunday Sept. 22. 

If you want to show off your home and landscaping and/or if you want to have a look at how others have set up their homes, this tour is for you. It's not a paid event, there are no groups to join, and everyone is invited to take part. 

Here are the details: 
  • I'll keep a list of SLURLs to homes of people who are willing to let people TP over and admire their decorating and landscaping.
  • If you want to add your home to the list:
    • Send me a private plurk, email or notecard no later than Sept. 18th. 
    • Please include the SLURL and your SL name. 
    • If you wish, you may also include:
      • a blog URL and/or business name so people will know something about you. 
      • a few (1-4) sentences about your design philosophy/style/etc. 
  • UPDATE:  Only the people who have their own homes on the tour or who contact me to ask for one will receive the list of SLURLS. I will not put the list on my blog or have it available publicly.
    I'll make a blog post with the list of homes on the tour. 
    • Anyone else who wishes to do the same may -- just contact me for a copy of the list.
    • I will only keep the list available during the tour days and I ask anyone who wishes to share/post the list to do the same.
  • If you want a copy of the tour logo, just contact me. I'll also stick it on Flickr.  (I am going to attempt to make a gift t-shirt with the logo, but we'll see how that works out.) 
  • On the tour weekend, set your land so that people can visit. Use the land settings you are most comfortable with, taking into account  that it is a public event. 
  • Visit the homes on the tour! Enjoy seeing other people's creativity! Wear pants! Compliment the homeowners on their sophisticated tastes! Visit one or all in any order - it's up to you. 
That's it. I feel like I'm forgetting something, but I do want to keep it easy and fun.

    1. Plurk has a great hive mind! They come up with great ideas!

  2. Yay! I've finished touring and am utterly tired, inspired, jealous, and potentially broke.

    I have documented my take on the tour at my blog http://rosemackie.wordpress.com. I'd love to see what fellow tourista and touristos thought.
