ESTABLISHED RESULTS FOR CHALLENGE #25 - SUMMER DESIGNER SHOWDOWN!
☆ @ChelsieLouise ☆
Excellent choice of inspiration object, the picture of the four plumbobs is bright and colourful, modern and vibrant. It's great to see this has inspired your wonderful colour scheme throughout the entire build. Pretty front appearance using plants and hedging and the potted plants and pictures really liven up the front porch. Perhaps some seating here would be good to watch the world go by. Wonderful rear design using all the space provided to create different areas of relaxation, the high fencing gives total privacy. Great interior design using the colours of the plumbob pic. Love the pink kitchen, very hi-tech and the brick walls look fantastic here. The green dividers section the areas well and are a great contrast with the pink/purple. The orange lounge looks very sunny and cheery, most certainly uplifting!
Suggestions: I believe the front of your build could be greatly enhanced by using more terrain paint to create either a driveway for the vehicle, perhaps with gravel, or maybe a dirt track with tyre marks on the grass. Spray a little paint under the trees to give a more realistic appearance. Regarding the presentation we like to see the pictures titled. We also like to see overhead shots of the entire site, each floor of the build to see the overall layout and one with the roof up so we can see the rooflines.

Sea-Esta Vile is a very beautiful beach style villa, you have captured the theme extraordinarily well. Perfect choice of exterior wall textures, windows, fencing and the spandrels add to the beauty of this build. Excellent use of terrain paint to create a sandy beach with coastal plants and grasses. The rocks lining the path provide a very welcoming appearance, along with the palm trees. Awesome backyard with the pier leading out to the water and the two beach huts look so quaint! You've made great use of these as a massage room and woodwork room. The interior design is impeccable with a wonderful layout. All rooms are beautifully decorated and furnished in keeping with the coastal style and each one packed full of interest, using shelves, ornaments/objects, mats, plants and pictures. I absolutely love how you've created the windows seats by the TV lounge.
Suggestions: Watch out for plants coming through walls, I spotted this in the kids room, use the 'alt' key to shift them away. Also noticed a 'hole' in the ceiling on the ground floor by the stairs, angle the camera to avoid this. The wall dividing the single bedrooms also divides the window, not sure if this looks quite right, maybe use two single windows here.

A wonderful bright and cheery appearance to your design which oozes Summer. The warm brown and orange wall textures and your choice of windows provide great interest to the exterior, as do the colourful planting, rocks and 'inspiration' chairs around the fire pit. Very interesting pool design at the rear, this really breaks the space up well, enabling different areas/niches. Good to see you brought the brown and orange tones indoors, creating a very warm and ambient appearance. The open plan living/dining/kitchen is spacious and well laid out. I really love the kitchen area with the central island. The first floor looks very exotic and is furnished beautifully. Awesome meditation room with the leafy plants and candles, very Zen like!
Suggestions: We judge primarily on the slideshow so it's important to show a few shots of each room at different angles. We like to see overhead shots of the entire site, as well as each floor so we can see the overall layout and one with roof up in order to see the rooflines. When taking pics remember to turn the grid lines off by hitting 'G' on the keyboard.

Excellent choice of inspiration object to create a family home based on space travel and science. Good contrasting exterior wall finishes with modern window styles give the home a contemporary feel. The geometric paving and 'designer' planting provide a very interesting appearance, very space like indeed! Lots of different areas at the rear with plenty to do. I love the structure you have created over the pool and the kids pretend new planet area looks awesome! Wonderful open plan concept on the ground floor with windowed walls dividing the areas. The kitchen is a beautiful design with built-in appliances and the 'L' shaped sofa is perfect for this area. Your choice of natural tones add to the space/science theme giving a soft neutral look all round. The rocks, elements and space pictures area great enhancements, all adding to the futuristic feel.
Suggestions: The rear of the property is absolutely wonderful, full of interest and beautifully designed. However, I feel there is a little too much going on, especially at the side where the kids area is located. Maybe by eliminating the observatory here and moving the fence and everything back a little would provide a neater, more flowing, space.

Excellent interpretation of your inspiration object into the entire build, you've done a fantastic job. The western style starts wonderfully outside with the terracotta and shades of brown contrasting well with your great choice of windows, though I see one is missing at the front! Fantastic choice of plants and path, giving a great desert like appearance. Lovely porch at the rear, perfect for a bbq or simply relaxing. It's great to see you've brought the style indoors. The bar area is very authentic and realistic looking with the muted brown and green tones and wooden floor. Lots to do here with the bar, card table and piano. Great layout throughout and good to see you've transformed the first floor into an office and a yoga room to relieve stress.
Suggestions: I think the rear porch would benefit from some steps leading down to the monkey bars. It would have been good to see an overhead shot of the full site to appreciate the landscaping at the rear. The front porch looks in need of a little decoration, perhaps a few potted plants or maybe a table between the benches.

ESTABLISHED RESULTS FOR CHALLENGE #26 - The Novelist
☆ @mommataurus2 ☆
Opulent Seclusion is a very appropriate name for your build which is extremely luxurious and private with beautiful views. The build is enhanced by the arches and columns and your great choice of windows. The design of the courtyard looks formal yet relaxing and the fountain makes it very soothing. The lights will create fabulous effects at night! Your interior design is both stylish and elegant with good sized rooms, all decorated and furnished beautifully. I love the lavish TV room with the drapes and comfortable seating.
Suggestions: The interiors walls would benefit greatly with the addition of more pictures or wall hangings to add that little extra interest. Regarding the presentation, remember to turn grid lines off by hitting ‘g’ when taking pics. We also like to see overhead shots of the whole site plan and each floor so we can see the overall layout, together with a shot with the roof up in order to see the roof lines.

Wonderful monotone textures used on the exterior of The Novelist Nest, giving a dark and sombre appearance leading to ‘secluded dramatic’. Excellent choice of plants which contrast well with the build. The rear garden is wonderfully private behind the high fence with beautiful landscaping and great use of terrain paint to create pathways and patio. Good to see you’ve brought the colour scheme indoors to create a stylish and elegant design. The lush red colour works really well in the luxurious lounge and bar. Love the design and décor of the master bedroom, the walk-in closet is a fabulous addition and the private balcony is just perfect for yoga and overlooking those beautiful views.
Suggestions: I think the writing study could be enhanced with the addition of a little extra clutter, plants or furniture, perhaps placed either side of the fire. It would also be interesting to see if a marble floor would look more luxurious than the wooden floor.

Congrats to the winners !!
@BuildnShare , I can´t thank anything by the moment, but the most I enjoyed making this challenge. It seems like I don´t exist. Where are my "CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM?" Did I infrige any rule? If that is the case, my apologizes, if don´t, I feel really bad right now.
Sorry, I´m new here, I don´t understand
