This may be the cutest picture I’ve taken for this blog ever, and I can only attribute, like, 25% of that to my own skills. Okay, 15%.

That amazingly darling tiki bar is the Floating Tiki Bar from Sienia Trevellion of Lark. It comes with the flamingo string lights, which are awesome and will be finding their way into all sorts of my decor, and also the adorable tropical drinks. It’s also scripted to give drinks and includes some really cute animations. There’s nothing about this that I don’t love.

Also, I love otters. ♥

The Floating Tiki Bar is available right now at this month’s round of Flux. Go!! [SLurl]

I could use a RL vacation spot like this. Just plop it down in the middle of my backyard. Grass cutting optional. Paradise.

This is the Midsummer Retreat from my music soulmate, Tegan Serin of floorplan., available right now at Collabor88. The set includes the shelter and the hanging bed – btw, you can NEVER go wrong with any sort of furniture that hangs – and the bed has all sorts of lovely texture options for the bedding. I went with all white because I wanted a very calm, peaceful, sort of zen vibe — aside from the bright red marquee letters, of course. Gotta have that splash of unexpected.

Check out the Midsummer Retreat right now – right now! – at Collabor88! [SLurl]

I love outdoor rooms. ♥ The new pergolas from Cory Edo and Trompe Loeil are very inspiring to create these outdoor spaces! Available at FaMESHed, the pergolas are available in super packs that come with all sorts of options – one wall, two walls, no walls…lights, flowers, lights and flowers…etc and so on. Gorgeous. Be sure to also check out the Country Pavilion, also at FaMESHed – it’s a perfectly grand and wonderful outdoor spot that you need in your garden.

The couch is one version of the Sydney Sofa from Rayvn Hynes and MudHoney, available now at The Home Show. I used the white one here because it fit the calm, mostly neutral palette I wanted, but you must check out all of the different color options available! There are, like, a million. Or twelve. Somewhere around there. And they’re all just beautiful.

Also, this is my new favorite dresser – the Alice Dresser from fri.home, available at The Home Show. It’s also available in white, and is just so perfectly classic and just the tiniest bit shabby and I love it. Hard.

Do you realize how many awesome events are STILL going on? We’ve had so many so far, it’s really easy to lose track. But trust me – there are still LOTS of events that you need to check out.

The pic above is made up of pretty much all items that are currently available at special events, or were available at special events very recently. The lesson here? GO TO ALL THE EVENTS.

I love this bed from Isla Gealach and Cheeky Pea – part of the Abbotsford Bedroom set currently available at The Garden – and those chairs!!! Those are the Deconstructed Armchairs, also from Cheeky Pea, available right now at The Home Show. There’s a whole deconstructed set that is amazing and you must check it out. You.
