Pretty Petals

Standard

One of the many themes that I’ve noticed in this round of Arcade is that of beautiful garden parties. So many flowers, treats (like every round!), and feminine little knick-knacks. Like always, you can mix and match from lots of the machines since so many designers went with whimsical, pretty things.

Shotgun

Standard

Okay, where do I even start?

Uber is open (with a cozy boho theme), and Arcade is just around the corner, and with people making beautiful spring inspired items for both, you’re going to be able to create some lovely seasonal getaways.

While I love everything about this look, it was all built around this fabulous little shotgun home from Trompe Loeil, which you will be able to find when Arcade opens the flood gates. This one room shack comes in 7 different colours (no rares!) and is perfect for a little guest home, play house, or anything else your imagination can come up with.

Colour

Standard

Sometimes, people are scared of colour. I don’t blame you, it can be hard to work with sometimes, especially if you don’t know where to start. The easiest thing to do is pick your favorite piece, what you’re designing your look around. Simply pick colours from that item, in this case I used the arbour, as inspiration for your other pieces!
