The LivingSims Forum, currently has a contest running to decorate a pre-built home (downloadable for both Sims 2 and 3) and I thought I might have a go. I wouldn't usually, because there's a deadline. I'm a bit crap with deadlines. It's a personality defect that I must aim for just after a deadline, or not aim at all. Don't give me a deadline, and I'll get it done. Go figure...
Anyhoo, it's a contest that has been broken up into rounds... or rooms, so it's not like I have to get the whole house done all at once... plus - and this is the real reason why I've bothered - there's a *Just For Fun* thread, where you can just have a go and post your pictures without the fear of annihilation by everyone with much greater talent than you... and seeing as I don't do deadlines, if I can't meet a deadline, I can post in the *Just For Fun* thread... ya follow? No? Me neither.
The rules are all laid out in the Contest Thread - the requirements for Round 1 are in the... ummm... Round 1 thread. So far there are some absolutely amazing entries and I'm feeling slightly intimidated... not least because the majority have opted for English Country Cottage, and I've gone with a more Modern English Country - thankfully, the remit was for English Country, so I haven't got it wrong. But I'm thinking it does look a little odd against all the soft tones of the other rooms. Ah well, too late now... as my nan used to say "Shit or get off the pot!"
This very last picture (below) is where the inspiration for the above bedroom/bathroom came from. The website that hosts it is HERE... scroll down to the bottom.
