    ENTRY DETAILS:
    This is a traditional coastal-style home with lots of windows to appreciate the view of the water on three sides of the home. This lot provides privacy as it is on Windenburg Island where there are only three other homes. Most of the interior is painted, paneled or tiled in muted tones of off white or gray with white trim so as not to compete with the colorful decor choices. It was a challenge finding just the right balance between "rustic" and "bright colors" and so I tried to avoid any furnishings that were too geometric, sleek or modern but it was hard as the most interesting color choices tend to be in those categories. I went with more of a "shabby-chic" or "boho-chic" look, using a number of colorful pieces from the Movie Hangout stuff pack and going from there. That was tricky also though because when you're using patterns and big bright colors things can get very "busy" and everything is competing with everything for attention. I felt that since this is a home on the water that it would be fun to decorate a space with a nautical-theme. The indoor/outdoor lounge just seemed like the obvious place for that fun look. I hope that Diana will enjoy her time in this home.

    Diana Grace is an aspiring actress who just moved to Newcrest to start her acting career. She is making new friends and has already signed up with an agency to begin her move up to the top of her profession. I tried to use mostly pastel and grays in my color choices. Put in a pool, BBQ area in the back, lots of plants and some cute touches here and there.
    No CC was used. Move objects, show hidden and testing cheat were used.

    You know the instant the elegantly dressed, obviously well-to-do couple walk - no, the man is definitely swaggering - into your office that they are going to be difficult to please. Still, you’re up for the challenge. You just hope you’ll be able to hear them over the yapping of the little dog in the woman’s purse. You consider asking them to please leave the dog with Karl but he already has his hands full with the two children left outside with him.
    “Mr. and Mrs. Gold, it’s a pleasure to make your acquaintance. Please, sit down. Can I get you anything?”
    “No, we’re fine. I’ve got other meetings today, no time for chitchat,” Garnet Gold says, rather abruptly, you think
    ‘And I have a lunch date, so make this fast,” his wife, Diamond, adds in clipped tones.

    “Of course. What is it you’re looking for? A mansion, perhaps? Some new property just became available.”

    “No, we’re happy with the one we have. What we want is a vacation home on the water,” Garnet explained. “We want to relax away from the crowds.”

    “But we need decks and space for entertaining. There must be music and a lavish garden,” Diamond adds.

    “I require a gym, and an enclosed swimming pool so it can be used in all weather,” Garnet continues before you can say a word.
    You make encouraging noises while typing furiously, not wanting to forget a single detail. With such exacting clients who may change their minds many times before the house is built, it’s best to hear them out and try to anticipate their needs. Fortunately, the dog quiets down so you can hear. You hope it sleeps through the rest of the meeting.
    “We also need a large dining room for guests, and a media room and playroom for our children, Jett and Jade.”

    “That’s definitely doable. Anything else?” You ask when they seem to have run out of words.

    “Glass. I want lots of glass and big windows so I can enjoy the view,” Diamond announces.

    Garnet nods. “All contemporary, of course. I prefer dark colors.”

    “And what do the children like?”

    “Jett would have his room decorated entirely in black if we let him,” Diamond says with a disapproving sniff. “He enjoys collecting such things as frogs and fish.”

    “He does like navy, red and gray, too. Jade enjoys fashion, much like her mother, though her favorite color is green, to Diamond’s despair, “ Garnet says.

    “A proper lady wears pink and does not spend her days playing video games,” Diamond says stiffly.

    “I think we have everything. What is your budget?” You interject quickly, not wanting a marital spat to break out in your office. You are beginning to suspect this is not so much about a vacation home but an attempt to bring a family together.

    “We own the lot, the budget is 250,000.”’

    “One last question. Do you need rooms for live-in help?”

    “No, this is for our family only,” Garnet replies as Diamond opens her mouth.
    "All right, we should have your new vacation home ready in one month."

    Brief:
    Budget: 250,000, excluding lot cost.
    Requirements:
    In addition to the usual bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen, the Golds want the following:
      A large dining room. Media room Playroom Gym Enclosed pool. Doesn’t have to be inside, but must be protected from the elements. A garden with outdoor speaker(s) Multiple decks. [/list Room challenge: Build the playroom for Jett and Jade. Budget: 15,000 Sim Challenge Create the Gold family and show them enjoying their new home. The children’s ages are entirely up to you. Note; The dog is not required, so don’t worry if you don’t have Cats and Dogs.
    The deadline for this challenge is Tuesday, 30th June 2020, no later than 23:59:59 PM EDT/New York time.

    @BuildnShare When you say 'media room', do you mean like a home-cinema?

    Not necessarily. It can be a room to enjoy any type of media, from TV to music. Even just a living room with a TV would count.

    ENTRY DETAILS: The Gold family had a beautiful piece of ocean front property in Sulani where we built a 3 story vacation home for them. This home has multiple decks with outdoor speakers scattered throughout so the family can enjoy music where ever they might be. I have given them an indoor/outdoor infinity pool with glass panel doors that can be closed off during poor weather so the family can still enjoy a nice swim. Because Garnet prefers dark colors I chose to add a lot of black to the build giving it a dark feel, but not too dark. There are many windows so the family can enjoy the beautiful ocean or garden views.
