Saffia Widdershins is owner and editor of Prim Perfect. So what is Prim Perfect?

Prim Perfectis a magazine for Second Life homes and gardens – with lots of wonderful articles about buying or renting your home in Second life, finding the best designers, choosing your furniture, arranging it to best advantage, managing your prim count, landscaping your garden and learning the latest news from the world of interior design.

In addition, they visit the best communities and the most stunning landscapes of various kinds, all across Second Life. And periodically, they travel to other grids as well to see what is happening across the MetaVerse. In other words, there is something for everyone!

Whether you are setting up your very first home, hungry for the latest must-haves, or customizing the mansion of your dreams, Prim Perfect has something for you. For those who are prim addicts, there are articles on high-end high class designer furniture too. Each month they showcase the work of a specially chosen designer in an exciting and fascinating region.

New businesses will love their Pathfinder articles, where the best and most experienced content creators in Second Life mentor a group of start-up businesses and help establish them in the Second Life world. Established business can follow their Trailblazer program, which is organizing a series of seminars, workshops and merchant trials for small businesses seeking sustainability.

For all those who love, or need, low prim Design, there are their Linden Home features, where we look at top designers working to create Linden Home furnishings – and also at the different ways that their readers have chosen to furnish their Linden Homes! For land agents, builders, landscapers, and designers – Prim Perfect offers a way for them to reach their clients directly.

Designing Worlds

Designing Worlds is the hit weekly show on design and designers in virtual worlds, brought to you by Prim Perfect Productions, the people behind Prim Perfect in co-production with treet.tv, the leading TV network in today’s virtual environments such as Second Life. From its roots as a “meta-makeover” show, the programme has developed into a magazine/factual format, adding interviews and visits to some of the most impressive locations in Second Life and other virtual environments.

The show goes out live in 720p High Definition every Monday at 2pm SLT/Pacific Time and is repeated through the week on the Treet Lifestyle channel. Shows can also be viewed on the Treet Designing Worlds and downloaded as podcasts via iTunes.

Designing Worlds is presented by Saffia Widdershins, the Editor of Prim Perfect Magazine, and Elrik Merlin of Radio Riel. You can see more on their Designing Worlds website.

Here is a list of areas to each of the homes and a selection of other popular items we sell here at ANTIQUE ARTISTRY.  It is by no means “complete” .  They add new items daily and you will find special items not on the lists, as well as some of the most beautiful flowers, plants and trees anywhere…scattered throughout all the sims.  Please do not hesitate to IM Fatima Ur, if you need help or assistance.
