Shops are a walking distance away, but the lot does come with a pretty sunset, which Tashira will hopefully enjoy from the small balcony. Ground floor has a open living plan, while the first floor has the bedroom and cramped bathroom.

    I hope Tashira won't fall off the stairs, because I forgot to add a railing. Mind your step!

    Challenge #28 is now officially closed. We'll be posting #29 shortly, we hope you'll join us :)

    Challenge #29 - The Lady in White

    When you first met Lady Augusta Blanche, you couldn't actually swear that she walked in. Ethereal and pale, she had smiled at you in a way that was sweetly wistful. You leapt up shook her hand, surprised at how delicate it seemed to be, and how cold. Her blue eyes had almost seemed to glow they were so light and her hair was the color of weak candlelight. Only the fact that you briefly felt her pulse against your hand when you shook hers assured you that she as alive.
    Now she was gone and you are tipped back in your chair, marveling at the odd assortment of people who come into your life looking for a home. And Lady Blanche was no different.

    "I am looking for a graceful home, suitable for spending the rest of my eternity there. It needs to have at least 4 bedrooms, a sitting room/ music room, parlor, living room and lovely kitchen. Quality and beauty are bywords for me, so the furnishings must be top notch." She told you, elegantly positioned in the chair across from you. "Servants quarters are required. I seek a wall around the yard, which must be generous, as I am a very private person. I work primarily at night so there must be curtains at the windows in the bedroom."


    All of that seemed reasonable to you, even if she would not tell you what she did for a living. What threw you was the request for a graveyard or mausoleum to be included in the back yard. Here she had turned all misty eyed and dreamy, looking like something off of the cover of a romance novel. "My beloved husband needs somewhere to rest during the day and his gravestone needs a proper setting to ensure his best sleep...."

    "Your husband is...dead?" You asked cautiously, more than a little creeped out now.

    "Yes, but not gone. He comes to me every night and we live in the perfect joy and love we shared before his little...indiscretion." The pretty smile she gave looked just a trifle unbalanced to you now. There was no way on earth you were going to ask what she meant by indiscretion.

    You had assured her that this could all be done in a couple weeks, making her smile brilliantly before drifting from your office like a ghost. You were not sorry to see her go...

    Brief:
    4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, sitting/music room, parlor, living room, kitchen.
    High quality furniture.
    large walled in yard
    Graveyard or Mausoleum in the yard

    @Buildnshare I see that you want both a parlor and a living room. Could you explain to me the difference between the two please? Thank you.

    Don't feel overwhelmed, you don't have to do all of them. The Sims are just an extra. and the room is there for those who don't have time for the full build. Of course you can do all of them, just don't feel you have to :)

    I am awaiting clarification too @mommataurus2 - does google /wiki give an explanation ?
  • mommataurus2mommataurus2 Posts: 1,845 Member
    @Lisiann1 This is what I found about the word Parlour. "Parlor is a dated word to mean a sitting room in a private house. Generally it means a room in a public building used to receive guests; it could also be a room in a convent."

    I wonder, I created a living room with a fireplace and then more of a study in the back with a library?! I wonder if this is an acceptable substitute for a parlour? Or if I should switch it to fit this definition? My living room doesn't have a television. I wonder if this is what is meant as a parlour because its more of just a place to sit and relax?! I don't know. I think I am just going to post mine as is tonight.

    @mommataurus2 it could really just be a formal living room, it's just a place to receive guests. Just like today's homes sometimes have a "living room" and a "family room".
  • ISHTARJMDISHTARJMD Posts: 260 Member
    The parlor is a nice formal or semi formal place where you visit with people who are guests but not necessarily friends or family. Kept clean and ready to receive unexpected visitors. The living room is where you enjoy hanging out with family, friends, where kids can play and the family lives.

    THe study is a different room entirely.
