    The Kitchen has been completely remodled, where the rest of the house represents its High Victorian roots

    Wow! That's absolutely mind-blowing work there. Beautiful!

    Are the kitchen wall textures CC or base game? I don't remember seeing them in the game, but that may only mean I have to look harder. ;)

    They are all base game, I really love how they work together, I think they have an old world charm mixed with the modern units for a classy look. thanks for your kind comments!!!

    Your Mansion is very nice! :) Very nice exterior of it! It looks very nice how you have done the roofing! The wraparound porches and how you have done the staircases looks great! Very nice design and furnishing of the kitchen! The curved island kitchen counter is very nice! The plant, egg basket and fruit bowl on the counters are nice touches in the room. Very nice patterns that you have used for the walls! It looks great how you have used the patterns on the walls.It looks very nice how you have placed the bird either side of the window. Sims will enjoy seeing the pictures whilst cooking meals. Great eating nook area.
    It is a very nice home! :)

    This is one extraordinary build! Amazing. I love the kitchen design. The textures you choose are perfect together and the whole layout is amazing. I like how you did the area around the tall cupboards. With the decorative window with the small narrow shelving. Very sharp looking!

    The Blue Belle Bedroom with sun lounge
  • cornishovencornishoven Posts: 163 Member
    It's beautiful. Good work :)
  • rosemowrosemow Posts: 161,168 Member
    The bedrooms are very nice! :) Very nice colours that you have used in the rooms! The blue colour scheme in the Blue Belle bedroom is very elegant and nice! It looks very nice how you have done the curtains in the rooms! Very nice sitting areas! Sims will enjoy sitting resting on the armchairs having a chat or a read of a book. The flowers on the table are nice for sims to enjoy seeing when sitting there. Very nice wall pattern that you have used. It looks very nice how you have placed the birds either side of the beds. The rooms look very nice! :)

    Wow, that is one magnificent WIP! If it's already this good I definitely can't wait for the finished product. I love the roofing and the multilevelled porch. Also can I just say thank goodness Sims don't have to maintain the woodwork on their home. Goodness knows how much work it entails in real life!
