Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

Ever since I was little, I have had a large love for the zoo and safari. I would beg to go to the zoo all of the time (even up into my teen years when my family and I were living in Birmingham), and I often dreamed of becoming an apprentice to Steve Irwin in Australia. *bless his sweet soul* My eyes were constantly glued to Zoboomafoo, The Crocodile Hunter, and a variety of other television shows of that nature. Just to put my obsession of “safari” into perspective….take a look at my safari themed, childhood bedroom here *wink*

As I grew older, I learned about Ernest Hemingway’s hobbies, writings, and home in the Florida Keys and fell madly in love with safari all over again. *NOTE: I have put it on my bucket list to visit Hemingway’s home (as well as  Mark Twain’s, of course *wink*) So, taking inspiration from one of my childhood loves and the brilliant Hemingway–I have created a fabulous safari-themed living space for this week’s VIP Home.

Stay tuned the rest of the week on VIP for some awesome safari-inspired makeup and ensembles *wink* 

Safari Room

If I were to follow this design in my home, I would opt for darker walls. Personally, I am a fan of rich hued walls in living spaces; however, for showcasing the elements of this design, the light slate gray was a fresher option. *Note: My dream living room walls will be either a deep midnight blue or dark navy blue because I am obsessed with dark shades of blue*wink**

I am just going to assume this is supposed to be a statue of a Dodo bird.... *slowly backs away* Oh, check out that ensemble too, y'all *wink*
