  • From this day forward my 'Dollhouse Victorian' home shall be known as 'Pretty In Pastels.' :heart_eyes:

    Sort of an expansion of my 'family friendly treehouse', this home takes that whole cutesy feel to a whole new, sophisticated level with delicate hues that will make your heart swoon! :blush:

    At the most bright point of the day and the most natural of its look, the home has a very soft, yellowy-pink brick exterior and purpley-pink trim.

    As the day grows longer and dark, that yellowy-pink brick exterior turns purple, in the shade.

    The wrap around porch and balcony goes all the way to the side of yard, making for a picture perfect wedding capture . . . Just add an arch and perhaps some seating and you're done!

    A little private seating arrangement to the side and nearby the fountain.

    From the other direction, we can see it all more clearly. It's a pretty open space. I put the firepit there to fill in the space, but it by no means has to stay put. I think an actual wedding arrangement with those chairs would look great there, but it fits as a nice placeholder for now. Though it doesn't appear that I got any good shots of it, I've also got one magnolia tree and beehive thing on the corner of the lot. I had my sim plant a few things beside it to get started. o:)

    From another angle we can see the side of the house . . .
    dJ2a8jB.jpg?1

    And the front . . .
    lHlIXz3.jpg?1

    The entryway opens up to these built in cabinets, read in nook and 'arts and crafts station.' I got some real life inspiration from a family friend that has a sort of shabby chic look in her sun room space. I wanted the room to match the outdoors, but meet a more neutral tone in order for a more welcome, warm and cozy environment. So, I used a lot of wicker and weave for this small space. You also see that I've placed a few paintings on the wall. More make an appearance throughout the house.

    The kitchen gets a lot more bold. However, knowing the end result of this house, I have no regrets about it.

    In the sims there's only so much you can do to create a lived in look. I went all out . . .

    All four bathrooms look similar to this with very minor differences. For this one and the master, the mirrors do not work because I used moo to combine the sink with a table. The other two bathrooms are much smaller, but still have the bath/shower combo plus the sink and toilet, of course. I don't think its necessary to go through them all. :dizzy:

    This is the living room space. I don't really care much for tv's in my sim game. I much rather the fireplace be the focal point, instead. I considered putting the tv off to the side of the fireplace, but I really like the wrap around seating with the corner pillow that comes from Aurora skies and I thought that would make the room look much smaller than it already is if it were place in the middle with the turn. So, I placed the tv in the middle, but hid it's grossness by moo'ing it into a table. Upgrading and such won't be a problem, since I had my witch/warlock go in and upgrade all the appliances. >:) In the corner, I moo'd in a cute little reading nook, which I'll expand on later. You'll see . . . You may have also noticed that I like this blue vace with the pink flowers a lot. It's sort of been the 'Easter Bunny' of the first floor. It makes fewer appearances through the rest of the house, but I really did fall in love with that vase. :cry: :heartbreak:

    Now we go upstairs. I put a piano here and dressed it up nicely. To my surprise, the dresser drawers actually work. I was just assuming they wouldn't and I was OK with that. So, now I'm extra happy about it. The ballet bar goes nicely with it. On the opposite side I put a sofa, as you can see in the reflection of the mirror.

    For such a small, little room this study sure took me a long time to figure out! One custom 'fake' desk on one side and a real workable one on the other . . .

    On the other side of the hall, we've got the first bedroom. While I would have liked it to stay with the theme, I needed a space for younger boys and older boys. This first bedroom serves to the former. I've always liked this set from the store, so I went all out and did the jungle and safari theme. I got a little creative to make the carpet a sandy color and used the corner for this green serpent to swim.

    I have a small seating arrangement by the door that leads to the balcony. This is the space across from the staircase in my first piano shot.
    PKKmMfU.jpg?1

    Next to that I have a small space filled with planter bowls. This home was built for my growing premade 'Funke' family and the mom, Sabrina is huge into gardening. I didn't have enough space in yard for a greenhouse, so I opted to bring some of the plants indoors.
    t32OYHV.jpg?1

    Onto the third floor!

    This was one of the two spaces I was unsure about, but in a sort of last minute decision, I just thought maybe this house could use a laundry because why not?? I actually like it a lot. I think it's one of my favorite rooms.

    We have two bedroom up here. The first one is for girls.

    The second bedroom is for the parents and it's connected to the nursery for convenience.

    Leading up to the fourth floor, I left this space empty. I thought it would be a good place for recreation, one room dedicated to kids and the other for other hobbies like gene splicing. :lol: Ok. Ok! I would really like it if I added a plant sim to my family. The science station is really large, but not too large so it will fit there. Please do whatever you like with it. Perhaps there's a hobby I didn't squeeze in this home that your sims NEED!

    There are two more bedrooms up here. The boys room is perhaps my favorite. I dedicated it to a science nerd and I think it could fit with any age group if need be!

    I would have liked the other bedroom to be just a spare room and I suppose it could be, but really really trying to keep with the pastels at the point. :smiley: It turned out beautifully.

    Last but not least, I made a play room and extended on my reading nook idea that I put in the living room, but made it much more kid friendly. The toy chest work by the way! :mrgreen:

  • I wasn't planning on sharing pictures till I was finished, but since I am sitting here on this Thanksgiving day, waiting for meal time, I decided to take some of my screenshots into imgur and . . . I liked the screenshot in black and white so much, I just have to share!

    So, here's a sneak peek!

    My super secret, brand new project is here, just in time to celebrate the holiday!

    Introducing . . .

    Midnight Hollow Townhouses! SQUEE!

    FkgXdNc.jpg?1
    yqyTggz.jpg?1

    Sooo, mees been wantin' to do townhouses for a long, long time. I just never thought that it would first be Midnight Hollow, if ever in Midnight Hollow. Dark lighting, dark houses. You know, can't see and all that. :tired_face: But since I opened up to a few mods (not pictured), as I have mentioned previously, I can finally :heart: Midnight Hollow. So, I started my work on 69 Breach Bend, a 20X30 lot. Yikes. That seems small for townhouses. :fearful:

    Apparently not! :mrgreen: The homes fit the size of the lot perfectly and are about 8 X 13 each with little changes to the entrances. The two on the left only go up two stories because the third floors have been lowered in order to create my roofs. The home on the right has the potential for a third floor within the Mansion pieces, if you need the room.

    Each home has it's own character and design, so you can find some variety in these linked townhouses. The one on the left is our home, decked out in a gothic type theme. I mostly used blacks and whites throughout. The other two homes are unfurnished and completely customizable to your liking! I only used the 'hidden room' marker for the screenshots, so no worries!

    So, let's explore!

    In, we go!

    Forgive me! There's a lot going on in this room! :D

    I finally made use of this awesome bust!

    Creepy doll being creepy.

    One of my favorite parts of designing was making this piano. Not only does the spellbook look great moo'd with the piano, but it also goes along great with the gothic look! Yippee!

    I was going to put a chess table here, but the fireplace is on the opposite side of the wall, so sims could not sit. Unfortunately, it couldn't be placed anywhere. On the bright side, I think this decoration looks nice, right?
    HmXLHTG.jpg?1

    Like almost always, the first room I designed was the kitchen. I wanted this one to be really BIG!
    I8Sl8AY.jpg?1

    I used these cabinets because I thought they would go beautifully with the gothic theme. These ones, I've never used before, but I love the yellow against the black.

    I really like having a table runner.

    Upstairs, we have a hallway, which leads to the two bedrooms and bath.

    I'm so glad I decided to make the bathroom larger. It might be my favorite room of the whole house!

    Finally, I just have to comment on this little bugger right here.
    vx847ql.jpg?1

    I really like that thing, but it's just too tall! It was never meant to stick out as much as it does in the download. I worked on a solution, but it will not transfer over correctly and will, instead, reset itself back into normal position each time you place the lot. :rage:

    So, I will share what I did.

    >Move the vent out of the way
    >Place stairs in the middle

    >Delete stairs
    >Level the lowered terrain 2 X 2
    >Place the vent directly in the middle
    LGYsoot.jpg?1

    >Using the level terrain tool, click and drag from the left edge of the roof until you're at least past the point of the lowered terrain
    GxozXyS.jpg?1

    >Let it go

    >Ctrl+Shift+C

    >Done!

  • I made a stylist steampunk sim to go along with the my Shut Up and Style Me! Salon & Spa

    Here's a large image of the salon. More pictures are in the download link.
    dqtBCwN.jpg?2

    Willow Huntley and the Household version, which has her set in the stylist profession and includes masterpiece artwork, architecture and fashion design sketches in her inventory, first intended to be uploaded with my salon.

    BIO: Willow Huntley considers herself "fashion forward", in such a dreary town as Midnight Hollow, where her style hasn't piqued much interest by the townies. That, however, hasn't stopped her from dreaming big dreams. She wants to become the best and most sought after clothing designer, ever. Will she achieve her dreams or will she continue to stick out like a sore thumb for as long as she lives?
