ENTRY DETAILS: I fell in love with the Boho living room and I had a ton of fun trying to get the style right. Inspired by a picture I saw online, I decided to build a Victorian-style shell. The kitchen and dining room being divided by a chimney was actually inspired by the Victorian house I grew up in, which has this feature, and it was really fun incorporating it and continuing it downstairs to divide the living room from the hallway. I ended up using items from the original living room throughout the house because I wanted a bigger couch in the living room and the rest of the room ended up being designed around that (I'm also planning to incorporate more items into an outdoor seating area). I tried to keep the whole house cozy and fun, with rooms either being colorful or using warm neutrals. I learned a ton about the different ways Bohemian design can look while building the house, and every room was based on one or more reference photos. I think my favorite room is the parents room.
I put the house on a 50x50 lot because I had a cool idea for the landscaping where I'd surround the house with a forest and build little walking trails and different areas (gardens, sitting areas, etc.) throughout the forest. Unfortunately, I moved the house to the lot, added a bunch of trees to roughly show the idea, and then woke up the next day with no power. My power was out for almost two days, so I didn't have time to finish the landscaping (for the same reason, this house isn't playtested). Please judge the house as-is, but know that the random items outside (including 2 mailboxes) and otherwise unfinished landscaping are not intentional parts of the build. I'm hoping to finish the landscaping within the first few days of November and I'll share a new lot link and slideshow on here when I do (just for fun, not for judging).
CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM: Yes please!
