    hey Iona!
    I couldn't help myself -- I thought I'd post one final picture! EVERYTHING is play-tested and upgraded. Which means, it's PHOTO SHOOT TIME! Now, I absolutely luuuurve to take pictures, so I hope to have this uploaded in the next couple of days!

    If the outside is too colorful at night, let me know - I shall change it before I upload it!

    The home looks great. :) Great exterior design of it. It looks great how you have done the windows. The water fountain feature in the front of the house looks great. Nice photo of it at night time. I will look forward to seeing the photos of it when you have uploaded it. Enjoy doing the photo shoot for it! :)

    Cyprus Springs is a great home. :) It is modern, artistic in your furnishing of it and well designed. Great exterior design of it. The way you have done the windows looks great, making it an open light home for sims to live in, and look out at what is happening outdoors. Great water feature in the front of the build. The white, black and silver colour scheme that you have used throughout the home looks great combined with the way you have used the other touches of colour. The indoor entrance to the home looks great how you have done the nook on the right handside with the pot on the table and have placed the sculpture on the left hand side behind the stairs. Great use of space and it looks great. Great design of the kitchen. The brick wall pattern looks great, and the CAP photos on the corner sides of the wall look great. It is a great coffee corner that you created there with the coffeeology photo and the coffee machine going well together. A great picture for sims to look at as they brew their coffee. Great alcove section behind the oven. Sim will like having the kitchen glass windows above the sink for them to have sunlight coming in on them or for them to look out at the views whilst they are preparing food and washing dishes/their hands. The colours of the items in the cabinets in the dining area combined with the pink lighting on the shelves in the middle area between these 2 cabinets, looks great! Great way you have placed the shelves/cabinets/sculpture and other items together to create this wall feature, and having the background of the brick wall patterns behind it looks good. . Great way you have done the sunken living room area. It looks good how you have done the steps going down to it. It looks great the way ou have created a nook area for watching tv, separated off by the stair railings. The recoloured green teeth sculptures each side of the tv look great! Great sculptures/art items you have placed throughout the whole home! Great way you have positioned them in the various areas/rooms . The wall pattern behind the tv looks great, and goes well with the colour scheme of the home . The wall feature in the game area which has the 2 toys on the shelves, the comics stand and the wall pictures looks great! Great way you have placed lights throughout the home. The study room looks great, particularly the purple hands either side of the door which welcome sims as they enter the room! Great way you have done mooing through out the house and the placement of pictures and other items on the walls all look great. Great way you have done the indoor balcony area with the plants in the white boxes. It is a great feature to look up at and see whilst standing on the lower level, or to look across and view whilst playing pool or listening to the music on that level. The type of ceiling light that you placed over the railings there which opens up to the lower level looks great. The curved corner sofa seating nook in the pool games area look great to sit and relax and have a cup of coffee. Great views sims would have looking through the windows. Nice furnishing of the bedrooms. The pot plants on the table at the end of the master bedroom bed looks great. Great tv corner section there. Very nice way you have done the bath tub with the greenery plants! Great art studio for sculpting. The hanging pictures there look good, and great blue light effect. Great outdoor areas. Great balcony for sims to sit out and have a drink from the bar or play chess or play some guitar music . Very nice garden area where there is the easel for sims to enjoy creating painting masterpieces in nice surroundings. The corner sofa seating looks comfortable for relaxing there, and great way you have done the plants, water feature and rocks. Sim will enjoy eating outdoors on the table there, whether at night or through the day after cooking on the bbq. Great way you have designed the bbq area with steps leading up to/from the cooking section to where they will eat the food at the table. Nice pool and hot area for sims to relax in the tub or pool and lie on the loungers nearby. Very nice photos of your build at nighttime!
    A great home :)

    Woah, this is flipping AMAZING!! Such a unique and arty build - if this doesn't get featured I'll be surprised!

    Brilliant job Arica! You're getting better with every build <3

    Oh my! :D I commented on this earlier! I wonder why it didn't come through... :?

    What a beautiful house! :D I love the way that the black and white is offset by the colours and the way you have create a modern, but natural interior!

    The exterior is great! I love the use of the water by the painting area, and the dark woods look great next to the white! I also love the hot-tub area, what a great view!

    Rec'd! :thumbup:
