#752 “It will never rain roses: when we want to have more roses we must plant more trees.... ”

Gardens are back. Yes, they’ve always been the favourite part of any home but in 2018, we’re going to see a number of exciting garden trends as people pine to spend more time outdoor in the fresh air. From a focus on the small garden to rethinking alfresco dining to creating a sense of enclosure, there are several different design concepts that will dominate this year. Some unique designers have created these exact design concepts within their SL home. 

You may be aware of the sim called Spirit of the Sun. This sim opened it's doors to you all last week and will remain open only for a very small time. This is the unique sim of Doutzen Joubert aka DoutzGeena Carminucciand Justine Lemton. Only for a short time there is an amazing photo contest with some awesome prices. For more details see below.

This stunning sim has surrounded itself with the exact trends that we should be all doing this spring. 
So adding a little beauty from Scarlet Creative, new at Collabor88 with some exciting other items, I bring to you the decor must have's for 2018.

1) Embracing the garden  
As the population of our world increases, space is at a premium. However, this doesn’t mean that we have to lose the benefits that gardens and outdoor greenery provide! Designers are taking into account the reduced space now common in homes. Although Spirit of the Sun is not small, their gardens are divine and accommodates creativity and a wide use of space.  

2) Alfresco dining: a new approach  
An alfresco dining space is a lovely and highly valued addition to any home – especially in the warmer, summer months. But in 2018, we’re going to see dining spaces being moved out into the garden, with abundance of parties coming your way. The dining experience is fully immersed in lush greenery. You might have to carry your plates a bit further but we’re sure it will be worth it!  

3) Creating a sense of enclosure  
Gardens are typically enclosed with a fence. While fences have obvious practical purposes such as containing pets or preventing intruders, they aren’t always the most attractive solution. What is, however, is enclosing gardens with dense plantings that provide privacy – and an attractive design.
