    Love the vibrancy and contrast of brights with the darker wooden frames of Karens summer temptations. The entertainment factor of sharing the experience with such delightful choices of food and wine is most inviting and warm. Love it! Go Karen.

    I love the orange summer look of the prawns, and bottle of wine, with the contrast of the dark blinds in the back ground. It gives a very relaxed, cool but cozy welcoming feeling.. stunning.. definately eye catching.

    The various shades of lime, orange and red go surprisingly well together, offset very nicely by the dark shutters. A visual delight! (And prawns and wine by the poolside don’t sound too bad either!)
