Chorus2010 back again for another edition of Spirit Dens!
This week's theme is non-member. I'm so happy you guys liked last week's den, and I loved all of your suggestions in the comments! As for next weeks den, I've set up a Straw Poll so you guys can vote on the theme! It'll end Friday, September 25th.
Anywho, let's take a look at some dens sent in by AJS fans regarding last week's theme, a home den!
|Phoubear's creative non-member den!|
There were so many more wonderful entries, however I couldn't feature them all.
The last image is a den by Phoubear! Phou is a non-member, and therefore has to be a tad more creative than his member counterparts do. That brings me onto today's theme!
Non-members have less available features than members. While that's understandable because members pay upwards of 6 - 7 USD a month, the lack of flooring, pets and animals doesn't seem quite fair.
Work with what you've got, right?
In this case, yes!
I've come up with my own 100% non-member den in effort to help inspire those looking for ideas on how to make their dens unique with a limited amount of space and items.
Let's get started!
By now, you guys should know that I like to start by choosing a type of den, in this case it has to be a Small House!
As for flooring and walls, I've selected the Wood Floor and the Blue Sky walls.
Onto the interior!
Starting with the entrance:
Using two Fantasy Banners, you can make a small curtain. Hide the metal pieces behind the wood plank!
A mailbox is important so that you can keep in touch with friends near and far, and a welcome mat is a nice little touch. The Bunny Statue just gives it a little flair, don't you think?
Continuing on, the living room!
|Shoutout to Cumulonimbus for helping me with this picture! She's a big AJS fan!|
If you ever see someone asking if there are any AJS fans around, that's probably me looking for picture models! Make sure to say something like "me!" or "I am!". I love meeting new people!
Anyways, the living room is super cozy and fun! The Outback Imports chairs are modern, yet old-school, and the default table is very nature-y. Don't forget a floral centerpiece and some teacups!
Now, non-members don't get to buy TV's, but that doesn't mean that your living room has to go without one. It's just time to get creative!
Two Wavy Bookshelves, a Shoji Screen and a game console, such as the newly non-memberized Overflow, or Sky High, will do quite nicely.
|As you can see, I'm broke. :)|
Make sure to adjust the setup so that the layering works out. What I mean by this is that the game should be centered between both bookshelves, and the Shoji Screen should be adjusted accordingly.
A stone lamp adds some nice ambience. :)
Two leafy fans make for some nice air conditioning, and they look cool too! Just hide the bases behind the roof tiles. A World Animal Day banner will spruce up those plain sky walls.
So the corner doesn't look so bare, I've added some barrels, plants, and a globe!
For the bedroom area, I've kept it simple. An orange Striped Couch paired with an Egyptian Rug works well, because they both have the same color scheme! Cleverclaw's Dresser is a lovely touch to any bedroom. As for the wall décor, I've put up a Howl Plaque, Jamaa's Flag, and some carnival flags!
I like the warm feeling that the orange gives off, very fall like!
As for the little porch outside, I've put in a bicycle, some leaves and hay bales to continue the fall theme, a telescope and some orange and yellow balloons! I also put in a Lynx statue just for fun. :)
So Jammers, that concludes this post!
I hope that I've helped to inspire you guys, and to show you that you don't need a membership to make your den special and unique. That goes for your animals too! Any animal can look fabulous with a little effort.
Here's the full den picture:
|This one has a few bugs as well, sorry!|
And here's the corresponding YouTube video!
