The African Queen is stunning! I have never thought about doing an African themed houseboat!
The way you have used colours and patterns like the zebra stripes really help create the African vibe here! I especially love the living room! The amount of recolouring here is so clear, and the effort you put in to get the theme really shines through!
Retro Ranch is a great home. You have recreated the house from the picture very well.Great furnishing of the house to a retro 60's theme. Nice shades of blue and orange that you have used in the living room. The patterning on the mat and the picture on the wall look great with the 60's theme of the house and the colours you have used. It looks great the way you have done the fireplace wall, having the brickwork wall and the 2 bookcases either side. The orange picture above the fireplace looks good, and nice way you have placed the items on the top of the bookcases. The room looks a good place to sit and have a chat, watch tv, and be kept warm by the fire. The 3 starry wall items around the back of the tv look great. Great design of the kitchen and eat in dining area there. The recolored jars on the counter, the blinds you have used and the pattern on the wall look great. Nice shade of aqua that you used for the counters. It looks a friendly and happy place to dine with how you have placed the chairs around the circular table. The apron hanging on the wall is a nice touch. Nice furnishing of the master bedroom. The brick wall behind the bed looks great. Nice sitting area near the window for sims to relax and perhaps read a book with the sunlight coming in on them. Nice touches with the clock and the photo frame on the side tables either side of the bed. The dresser nook looks great.The indoor plants look great how you have placed them. Great walk in closet. It looks great how you have the clothes rack there, and the sports t shirts on the wall. The shelves of shoes look great. The pink and purple nursery looks nice and bright for little sims to enjoy sleeping and playing there. The heart patterned blinds looks great. The teddy is cute in the cot, and the toys on the floor are are fun for the little sims to see and play with. Great aeroplane themed boys bedroom. It looks great how the various toys are scattered over the floor, just where the boy has left hem! The way you have done the study desk section of the room is great. Great basement level. It looks great how you have set up the bar area, with the counters and bar stools. The jug on the counter, the towel on the wall and having a sink there looks great. Great use of the area under the stairs for little sims to have fun playing with their toys. Sims will have fun playing the various types of games there, as well as listening to the music from the juke box. Great outdoors pool area. Sims will enjoy relaxing on the loungers poolside or have fun swimming. It looks nice how you have done the flowers along the sides of this pool area. Child sims will have fun playing on the playground equipment or climbing their treehouse. Sims will enjoy cooking on the bbq and eating outdoors.
It is a great home!
I've been lurking around Bob89's comp thread in GG. I think you got it spot on. The exterior looks exactly like the picture and the retro interior matches it perfectly. Rec'd.
Hi Sandraelle! Your Retro Ranch is fantastic! Really nice work with the colors and decor choices. Very retro. Your home looks exactly like the inspiration photo! The outdoor area and landscaping are really lovely! Good luck in the contest! Rec'd.
Hi Sandraelle. I really like your newest creations, the first is really cool and It looks so real. You did a great job on the interiors. I do really love the double bedroom and the living room.
The second build is so charming. Love the brick on the exterior and all the gold and black on the interior. The little breezeway is a nice effect and bring everything together so well. Two fabulous builds!! Rec'd both.
Congratulations on winning the contest!
