Application Round - Rustic

This living room is the crowning jewel in the home of a rancher who has better things to do than decorate. Enter through the river rock framed door (making sure to wipe your cowboy boots off on the braided rug) and enjoy the convenience of having all your working gear immediately at hand. Walk under the light fixture made from the antlers of a deer you probably hunted yourself and through the subtle divider formed by the supporting beams into the main area of the room. Use the solid ranch desk to budget out your weekly costs in salt licks, with a water pitcher on the stand nearby for when you realize finance is thirsty work. When you're done, sit back with a book or a piece of fruit on your hide couch. Don't worry about the fire burning in the hearth. The smart rancher knows he doesn't need a fire alarm when he has his wall-mounted lucky horseshoes hanging nearby.

Optional Pictures





Extra Notes

Not a single piece of CC. However, the room is about 70% Store content. Okay, maybe 80%. Or 85%. Possibly 90%. But that's it!

I agree on the grunge, but I don't mind a challenge

Have added the contest to my signature, and I added a link on my blog the other day.

Yes, but it doesn't necessarily have to use as much CC as levini's, I've seen people do grunge without any cc at all, although Tipsy OMSP would be a good piece to use "hint hint"

Why did I move here? I guess it was the weather.

For grunge I'm really considering throwing out the points and just doing a full on bdsm dungeon type room. But that all depends on previous points. I mean, hey if I end up being in second or third I won't want to throw the round, right?

Adding to the numbers for ya :-)

Round 1 - Modern (Mid-Century)
Anyone who knows me knows I just can't do modern but with some lovely new sets out I couldn't resist using some Mid -Century items.

Using Danish style furniture this house has been decorated in retro style items sourced from second-hand shops. I have used some new Orla Keily patterns to enhance the retro look.

Room Layout Picture :

More pictures:











Most of the items are from the Benton set by AnoeskaB at TSR and B5Studio. The rest of the smaller deco items are from TSR too. There is a fair amount of CC but I wanted the room to look authentic to the period. The smaller room is decorated as a wooden garden room added on to the lounge.

Thanks volvenom, also Rey's, that's be an interesting stretch from the usual, but I don't think it'll fit into any of the round rooms, since I know them ahead of time - host and all.

Sandy- ill enter ur entry into the table when I have access to a computer.

or a bedroom hint hint

I saw a few complaining about Grunge CC, and just to prove you don't have to use CC to make a good grunge is this house: http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=468030

A great person to look at for inspiration for grunge type lots with little to no CC is Feldyn. Here is one of his lots that is amazingly grungy and no CC in sight! Sinner's Remorse

Thats true, Feldyn, makes great lots, I have taken inspiration from his train station on many occasions. Thats just to show you how possible it is.

Round - Application International Styles (African)

This cosy African styled room as a hardwood floor and six windows with their own African cotton curtains. The furniture is traditional African furniture while the artwork is exact replicas of some of the most famous, beautiful African originals. The large windows show a magnificent view of the sea which can be viewed more closely through the elaborately carved telescope.

Alright, I'll put it in right now.

NOTE: The application round closes in 4 days, and we still don't have 10 participants.

Why did I move here? I guess it was the weather.

Application - Modern

This is the living room of an older middle aged couple who travel frequently and have brought home some interesting accent pieces, though the overall style is clean and modern. With no children around, it's feasible to have white everywhere - crayon stains are a thing of the past. The two focal points of the room are the fireplace and the window in the section with two lounge chairs.
















No custom content.

I am going to apologize ahead of time, but it seems this contest has not accumulated the proper amount of contestants to continue, and it will be locked a few hours if I do not accumulate 3 more.

We got some really great entries in the short period of time this contest ran, and I would like to thank the judges for volunteering and everybody for entering. I really appreciate it. Hopefully the next time I run a contest it will fare a little better.
