|Street view now - with more suitable plantage. ;)|
Now, the inner courtyard got a good work-over. There has to be a bench, of course, for those days you just want to sit and listen to the fountain bubbling. I added tons of flowers in a colour scheme that would complement the sort of "tropical" feel to this home. And a few fun things to look at - three suns on the back wall, a birdbath, an oddly-shaped carving, and even an old ship's steering wheel.

I'm liking the warm tones in this home, but I'm also enjoying punching up each room with shots of colour. Cora's bedroom brings in some Mediterranean-like blues and turquoises, and includes a treadmill (which would never get used it this were really me... LOL)
|Just a quick exit to the raised sundeck, too!|
I think I've lost inspiration for the last two rooms, which are supposed to be bedrooms. However, Cora has literally just moved in and hasn't met any potential mates yet, let alone had time to think about kids!
I'm beginning to think that this should be the Cora I "plop down and play", since I'm liking the house so much. ;) Perhaps she'll manage to meet someone and get close enough to him to have a real date for New Year's, eh?
So if that's the case, I may leave those two "spare" rooms until I see if Cora wants kids or not. I'll finish up the sundeck (had to re-download my Sun, Surf and Sand set, I was missing it since my last install!) and then call it a day for home decorating. Get her working on her LTW - becoming an author - and take her through the Christmas season in the lovely and warm Summer Hills. Hmmm... a Christmas without snow. That would be a first for me. Um, I mean, Cora. *giggle*
