The next family in the play schedule is the Nihill household, so obviously, they needed a house. I had them living in a lovely downloaded one with all the bedrooms on the basement level. When I moved them in, I thought that wouldn't annoy me but it only took about 30 seconds trying to decorate it for me to realise that it was going to drive me insane! Then I actually went insane and decided to build a house, which I very rarely do.
So here it is.
As is customary when I build houses, the rooms are all way too big. ;) But better too big than too small. Maybe?
What passes for landscaping in my game. ;) It's still more than I normally do.
The enormous living room area. Victoria and Adrienne (and Araminta, who is off camera) had dropped by as part of the welcome wagon. As always, don't mind the blank frames. You guys know I'll have them filled in by the time I play. :)
One of the bathrooms, which are mostly identical.
I'd never used blue and brown together before but seeing Steve's favourite colour is blue, I decided to have this place be more of a mix between his favourite and Olivia's brown (their last place was almost all earth tones). It's subtle, so I think it works.
Note to self: put a plant in that empty corner!
I may turn this room into a covered porch - I just had the idea 10 seconds ago - but right now, it's a sunroom.
Olivia finally has her own sewing room, over 20 years after graduating from college. She's been sewing in the corner of her bedroom for years. Granted, it was a large corner but this is better.
I am very, very fond of all the bedrooms in this place. This is Steve and Olivia's. I was happy to be able to work that bed blanket texture in, as I love the colours in it.
Ramona gets a new hairstyle and a totally sweet bedroom! I would have loved to have had a couch in my room when I was a teenager. It barely fit my bed, desk and wardrobe though, so that wasn't going to happen.
Jacinta's room was the one I was the iffiest on. But then I remembered I gave her the trait Silly, so in line with that, I really like the clashing patterns. This room is growing on me very quickly.
And this is Theo's room. He's got a mix of kid stuff and more grown up stuff in there, cause he's a smart little guy. It won't be too hard to convert this to a teen room, when the time comes.
Thanks for looking! I hope to have a proper story update for you next week. We're only three updates away from the end of the round. :D
