i love this interior so much

Everyone needs to listen to that Smallzy interview with Niall.  Smallzy makes a slightly homophobic joke about Niall not looking like someone “into interior design” (he’s at Niall’s house and commenting on how beautiful the interior is) and Niall is like, nah, man I love it.

Then Smallzy is asking Niall about what to do on Valentine’s Day, how to act with women, and Niall is all, dude, all women are different, play it by ear.

I love Niall so much!  And I’m so impressed that he isn’t just going along with that stuff and being a bro.


✧・゚: *✧・゚:*  ♥  Lilium is finally completed!  ♥   *:・゚✧*:・゚✧ 

🌸 Dream Address: 7E00-0030-ED6F 🌸

🌸 The gentle pink sunset* will accompany your presence as you wonder through the cherry blossom trees and the plentiful pink and white hybrids growing around your feet
🌸 Residents of Lilium include a (wannabe) pirate, a cherry blossom loving gal, a busy cafe worker, and of course, the Mayor
🌸  Note: Do not sit on the two adjacent cedar stumps in front of the tower! You will be stuck and absolutely cannot get out (blame the update for patching up the awesome stump-to-river glitch)
🌸 If you visit, tag me! @wilted-rafflesia and/or #unwiltingdreams

I hope you enjoy visiting Lilium! (I didn’t put much effort into the beach area, haha…)

*: I may change this setting to early morning ~5am if I end up liking it more than the 6pm sky

I know, I know, but the only thing I can think about when pondering all the BTS stuff about Magnus’ penthouse (besides the fact that they call it a fucking penthouse), is how many fucking couches, sofa’s, one seats, lounging chairs and other seating furniture Magnus has in there.

And Alec and Magnus are going to make out on ALL OF THEM.

Ok so first we have the black couch, which is obviously nr. 1, since it’s both the largest, and Alec has history with it, since he cleaned it once. (Although I think it’s a new one and not the same). Like, obviously half of all make-outs start there.

Then there is the blue one seater, which Alec is very fond of, because of the turquoise shirt Magnus wore so dramatically. Basically, turquoise is Magnus’ color, and Alec can’t resist him when he’s sitting in it. Not the most comfortable seat, but the elbow rests are low enough.

The yellow one is a challenge, because the pillows tend to move. But the arm rests are the perfect width for Magnus’ thighs to fit in next to Alec’s, so perfect for straddling. Once things heat up they need to move though.

There’s not a lot of free wall space in Magnus’ appartment, because he likes to decorate, but those pillars are all they need for their vertical make-outs. Best part is they can stumble from one to another, so it’s easy to switch between who’s pressed against the wall, leg hiked up, kissed breathless.

They tried the table once, but the table cloth was slippery, and butt prints are always a no-go, even if the butt they come from is an extremely attractive one.

Then there is this magical lounge chair. Like, look at it, it’s made for make-outs. Honestly, it’s made for sex. (I’m especially fond of it because it’s right next to the Chess Board, and in the Chess dating fic I’m currently writing they end up making out on the couch, and THIS ONE IS PERFECT.)

Alec’s favorite after the blue one.

Magnus realized Alec’s mission to Make Out On All The Things, and suddenly the furniture moves around! See evidence A), the flashy new red one seater, and the evidence B) the yellow seat that’s moved to join the chess board. I love this because Magnus alters his home according to his mood, and I am so here for it. (Also notice all the pillows which have disappeared for the most part in other shots? I’m thinking those were lost to the floor thanks to two giants trying to fit all their limbs on one piece of furniture).

After a little bit, they’re both kind of ready for a new challenge, cue all the other furniture.

They tried this once, but the seating was horrible so they ended up stumbling against the bookcase and then Magnus’ potions nearly fell. No more make-outs allowed. Alec still kisses Magnus gently on the forehead/cheek/lips when he brings him coffee after pulling an all-nighter in his library.

Their first movie together had a scene in it where someone wiped all stuff from someone’s desk as a romantic gesture. Magnus immediately warned Alec off to never ever do that. The first time Alec uses his desk to sleepily write a fire letter, wearing only one of Magnus’ shirts and his boxers, Magnus kind of gets swept away himself. He seats himself upon the desks, pulls Alec forward by magically moving his chair, and kisses Alec’s breath away.

Only Magnus gets to wipe his desk.

Besides The Mission To Make Out On All The Things, the biggest reason they stick around downstairs a lot, is because the staircase is not made to make out on. Shins, ankles, elbows, shoulders, everything has been bumped into the metal of the staircase at least a dozen times, while they try to make their way upstairs without stopping to kiss.

It’s the bane of Alec’s existence.

(Also, in the background, is that a spare bedroom? It’s not Magnus’ one because no reds, but it does look like a bed?)

And then, last but not least, there’s this one, which is possibly in Magnus’ bedroom, and which is just so soft looking and inviting, like honestly, it’s made for making-out.

Basically, I really love Magnus’ lair, there’s so much nooks and hidden places and so much personality, and I can’t wait for Alec and Magnus to have fun in it. And to write all the fic, because SO MANY POSSIBILITIES.

My best friend and I went to a garden center the other day and felt in love with these two babies 🌱 Then came back home and searched for pretty pots and had the idea to put them into my two cat mugs 🐱 and look how perfect they match in color 😭 Coincidences like these make life so much brighter 💕


Today I tried to create my “dream room”, a place where I can read books in a relaxing atmosphere, listen to a vintage record player and work on my computer. The owl is definitely my spirit animal, so yes, I placed owls everywhere lol I decorated the room with the new stuff I downloaded in the last months and damn, I’m loving this cc so much ._. 

Of course, I will never have a room like this in my house, but let me dream D:

The Crosley Building

Standing vacant for twenty years in the skyline of the Camp Washington neighborhood of Cincinnati, this ten story industrial building has been on my list of places to explore for some time now. The problem is pretty much any time over the past few years that I’ve made the trip to Cincy it was with other people and I never got the chance to check it out. So this week whilst burning some much overdue vacation time from work I randomly decided to point my car west and head that way solo. Over the years I’ve seen lots of photos of the interior and exterior of this place and much like with all massive art deco abandoned buildings, I fell in love with it immediately. Built in 1928 to house the headquarters of the Crosley Corporation, it was a state of the art facility at the time. The lower floors served as home to the manufacturing facilities for radios and other appliances while the top floors held a handful of broadcasting stations owned by the corporation. In 1960 the building was taken over by AVCO Electronics who continued to use it to make radios until 1970 when it was sold yet again. This past summer news broke that an Indianapolis based development firm was awarded $5 million in Ohio Historic Preservation Tax Credits toward it’s planned $35 million conversion of the historic building into 238 apartments.
