Here's what I've been slowly crafting over the past few weeks. It's a small wooden house. Somewhat messy on the inside and not too groomed on the outside but still kept with love by its artsy owners. I had a lot of fun building and decorating it and I hope you'll like it. Ready? Off I go:

4 Plum Alley is one of those houses that are quietly hidden in mysterious-looking greenery. It seems quiet, yet has a lot of stories to tell. (Here's an extra angle)

We'll start our tour in the small entrance hall. It's nothing special, really, just a floor to land on after a long walk or a wild ride on the bicycle. (A top-down view is nothing to be ashamed of) (Yes, I am very aware of the fact the room only has one lamp but two light switches. It's not a mistake, though. I mean, the lighting outside has to be turned on somehow, right?)

The main part of the house - the living room - is the next thing we'll take a look at. Since it is such a small house, this room is also used as the dining as well as the music room. Notice the high ceilings - it's a little something I'm particularly proud of. (Top-down view since it is impossible to capture everything in this room without one)

The main part of the house may well be the living room but the heart of the house is still the kitchen. I tried to recreate a kitchen I've done before by using the same combination of walls, counters, appliances and even clutter but adding some new elements, too. This is the result which I personally find quite cosy. (You should know the deal by now)

Quite accidentally, the bedroom has turned into the room with the most antique furnishings in it. Or at least the most expensive ones. Additionally, this room has also maintained a big part of its original wall paintings. Sadly, the previous owners got rid of the painted walls in other rooms if you count out the blue under the ceiling of the living room. The new owners, on the other hands, have given their best to preserve as much as possible. (Just hangin' above the gound)

It may be tiny but it's still a fully-functional bathroom. Some may think it is in a desperate need of some renovation works but the artists dwelling in this residence find a room like this romantically charming. (Khkhm)

Before I move on to the garden, this house also has a verandah that is used as the painting room. Sadly, it was too brightly enlightened and the photographs came out slightly... Let's just say they'd put you off. However, I did not forget to take a picture of the room from the heaven's point of view.

And, last but not least, since floor plans are awesome, have some yourself. #1 and #2.

A huge THANK YOU to all the custom content creators whose stuff I've used. Seriously, every single one of you is a whole mountain of awesomeness. Every single object seen on this lot has been chosen carefully and not the way I usually fill everything with rather random clutter. So if you see anything you've created, you have my biggest appreciation.

I guess that's all, folks. Once again, I had fun building it. I did not have fun resizing images but I think it was worth it. Do tell me what you think. And thanks for reading/looking/whatever. Cheers!

This house is amazing. There's such a great amount of thought that has clearly gone into it to create a cohesive aesthetic. I love all the worn furniture and the ounches of bright reds, yellows and blues throughout. Amazing work!

I'd also like to know how you did the high ceilings!

(I had to delete and edit this comment like three times because of typos. The heat is melting my brain.)

I always love to see your decorating - you have such a very personal and unique style, and a way of effortlessly making a lot look like a real home. It's clear that everything you use has been carefully chosen, which makes me all the happier to see my curtain recolour in the kitchen (especially as that was the first item of CC I ever made!).

It's hard to pick a favourite room, but perhaps it would be the bedroom, with that clever ceiling, or the living room with that lovely fireplace.
