Wild for Watermelons!

Side yard Overview

No other fruit represents summer like the watermelon.  I love summer’s bounty with fresh picked fruits arriving everyday from local farms in my area.  The colors and textures of summer fruits have inspired tons of fun whimsy designs in RL, seems perfect that 24Karat Roux of Finishing Touches latest release at The Designer Warehouse Shopping Event would feature watermelons.  The Slice of Life collection is exclusive for the Designer Warehouse and on sale for 50% off until tomorrow, August 7.  The collection includes a watermelon picnic table with texture change umbrella, rezzable food, and change color cushions, watermelon juice beverage barrel, “Watermelon Eating Contest” sign, and melon lawn chairs with picnic basket.  Finishing Touches is currently participating in the Skull ~n ~Bones hunt and the gift is a vintage watermelon crate with decorative melons and sitting animations (please note not sizable).  I used my tribute to Palm Springs retro home side yard as a backdrop creating the garden design with Sway’s Walter Park Bench (released for The Challenge August theme Vintage/Retro), Flowey’s milkshake machine, Inspired red BBQ (no mod), and Tres Blah 50’s camper Pink (Arcade March 2014).  Hurry over the The Designer Warehouse and grab these must haves for your summer party needs.  Let’s Get Decorating!

The African Queen

Bed view from Globe

One place in the world I have always wanted to visit is Africa.  The recent round of Collabor88 sparked my creative juices and I thought it was the perfect opportunity to reappraise the monthly “? Room” article based on a specific theme, African Safari.  To create the luxurious safari inspired bedroom haven fit for an African Queen tones of gold, browns, sandstone, creams, and white overlaid with textures of leather, canvas, suede, cotton, and faux fur tied the room together.  Don’t be afraid to overlap rugs and mix animal prints to accomplish the mood of the Africa.  Most items I used are offered at the current round of Collabor88, ending tomorrow so runnnn, and the Lion wall art is a gatcha item from the Around the World in 80 Days hunt available until September 30.  Hope you enjoyed my safari retreat, I had a blast styling the room.  **UPDATE: So sorry I made an error, I thought C88 closed on August 7 for set-up but this afternoon I attempted to teleport to pick up a few last minute items and was unable to access the event location.  All items will be available at the main store locations.
