Club Tropicana

with 12 comments

 

“Let me take you to the place
Where membership’s a smiling face
Brush shoulders with the stars
Where strangers take you by the hand
And welcome you to wonderland
From beneath their panamas

Club Tropicana, drinks are free
Fun and sunshine, there’s enough for everyone
All that’s missing is the sea but don’t worry
You can suntan!

Castaways and Lovers meet
Then kiss in Tropicana’s heat
Watch the waves break on the bay
Soft white sands, a blue lagoon
Cocktail time, a summer’s tune
A whole night’s holiday!

Pack your bags
And leave tonight
Don’t take your time
Gotta move your feet, don’t you miss the flight!”

Club Tropicana ~ Wham

Take to the Stage!

“I was faced with a choice at a difficult age
Would I write a book? Or should I take to the stage?
But in the back of my head I heard distant feet
Che Guevara and Debussy to a disco beat”

Pet Shop Boys ~ “Left to my own devices”

KraftWork has made a wonderful stage (currently at Indie Teepee Festival) that has a texture change background HUD, here I’ve put it on plain black but it’s a lot more versatile than that. In essence, I wanted to do a monochrome picture today, it’s not easy to capture all the shading to give a good representation of the scene so I hope I’ve done a reasonable job here.

The main furniture is from Fancy Decor‘s new set – The Dürer Collection (currently at UBER). The collection is influenced by the work of Albrecht Dürer, a painter, printmaker and theorist of the German Renaissance. This was a cultural and artistic movement that spread among German thinkers in the 15th and 16th centuries. Albrecht established his reputation and influence across Europe when he was still in his twenties due to his high quality woodcut prints. His friends included the major Italian artists of his time including Raphael, Giovanni Bellini and Leonardo.

Too glam to give a damn

with 2 comments

I liked the sentiment of this set by Fancy Decor. I’d say it’s about creating what you think constitutes the concept of “Glam” and not to bother about what anybody else says.  I sorted through my recent Home & Garden and came up with some fabulous pieces to match the main set.  If you haven’t visited the Home Show 2017 or would like another look, then you’ve got until July 29th.

Don’t forget, you can click on the picture to view a much larger version.

A Writer’s Summer

with 17 comments

 

I’m not really being lazy, I did set up the typewriter *laughs*, but that was before making the summery drinks 🙂 The picture shows the porch area of Raindale‘s “Kenward Summer House”, currently at Cosmopolitan Event. It’s a small building, footprint is 14 by 16, but you can fit a lot in if you extend the porch to a garden room. Versions are available with and without lights, with a difference of 6 Land Impact so there isn’t that much in it. There’s also a “Welcome Post” in the set with sign and lantern and you can change the lettering of the board if you want – there’s a blank texture – so you could have ‘Please Sod Off!’ if you wanted peace and quiet. Errr… LIZ!

The chairs and table set are eTNIA‘s contribution to the Home Show 2017. I just love them – they are so detailed and would look great in real life in my lounge! That rug underneath is also eTNIA (at Cosmopolitan) and it has a texture change for 8 Persian rugs, you know the sort – well loved and faded a bit in the sun and most likely too expensive to drop your tea on. It’s quite a 3D rug, so be careful when you place items on top of it. Finally, the dogs and hummingbirds bring the whole thing to life.

*~*~*

The next picture shows the garden and more of the lovely Kenward Summer House. I think the landscaping turned out New Zealandish again but I can’t resist the tree ferns and they go well with Raindale’s texture change Tree. Now this tree is rather dramatic, don’t you think? It’s at the Home Show 2017 and has scripted and non scripted versions. You can have five different leaf textures and same for the bark, then there’s glow options and 5 presets plus an alpha mod switch. It’s really a garden statement piece because I don’t think you could have more than one and get away with them all leaning over in the same direction with the same branch arrangement, so here it is undermining the foundations of the Summer House in a very spectacular way.

*~*~*

Now here I am really chillaxing on Fancy Decor‘s “Modular Outdoor Living Kit”, which is currently at Summerfest 2017. I just adore this set because you really can make up the furniture into whatever space you have to spare. This is quite a small arrangement here, and there are single chairs with two arms as well so you could go all suite-ish if you like. Fancy Decor have this set out in two wood colours, I chose the lighter one with blue pillows, the darker kit will have cream and chocolate pillows, and the furniture is more like cream and mid toned wood. And those gorgeous summer drinks? You can gacha those at the Okinawa Summer Festival and they are by Poche. As far as I’m concerned, Poche are the Bees Knees when it comes to food and drink décor… maybe even the whole of the honey bee.

Cocktails at Eight!

with 9 comments

 

I think there’s a lot more than cocktails on offer here!  The Bonham dining set by Fancy Decor, currently at FaMESHed was the starting point for this picture, with the beautiful leaf decoration on the plates and wall prints, it made me think of an indoor/outdoor theme.

There’s been a frenzy of houseplant sets from various designers, lately.  I’m using several here, most notably the set by Dust Bunny, currently at FaMESHed.  These are finely observed, and include the medinilla plant, a North American variety with exotic hanging blooms.  I remember seeing the real life version of this in a friend’s house, a most unusual houseplant.

For sheer value on the houseplant front, though, I have to take my hat off to What Next, everything in the picture was purchased at various Fifty Linden Fridays.

I’m loving the new wall panels by Calm. Everything that designer produces is beautiful made and textured.  You can pick those up at the current round of The Chapter Four.

One Man went to Mow

When you know you’ve got a really big gardening job to do and… you just can’t be bothered! The grass is so tall that the elephant shrews are bouncing about in it and you’ll be lucky if you can find the lawnmower, let alone start it 🙂  Duvet Day‘s garden furniture is just too comfortable, I don’t know, I think I’ll just have a snooze along with the Spaniel.
