lagritsalammas: (Dream House)

I built a house. But then again, when was the last time I didn't build one? May I present you, the current star of Behemoth Isle - 4 Douglas Adams End.



I don't want to hear about any OMSPs for at least the next 10 hours, for I OMSP'd myself crazy trying to decorate that roofline. But I think the result was well worth the effort. In fact, I don't think I've ever been this satisfied with the look of a house before.

Plus points to those who realized it's the same house as 4 Plum Alley. Those of you who figured that out, might also remember I once promised to share that little house. Sadly, the combination of a lowered storey with an EAxis chimney going through it resulted in the lot becoming borked. Because of that, I recreated its belated twin sister with standard height rooms.



To me, this house looks simply magical at night. My imagination first went flying as I went into night mode. Hence the interior pictures being taken at a darkish hour.



Alongside giving that wallpaper I made one last use and reusing the stuff I end up putting in my houses a little too often, I also realized those mission style armchairs with recolours by who I believe was AveSims, as well as that mirror, really add that last bit of character to this room.



The reading nook. I wish I had had a sim living here during the photoshoot, so I would've had someone to light the fire in the fireplace. What do you guys this, who could be dwelling this humble living room?



As you can see, I played around with the ceiling's textures a bit. I was inspired by a club in Haapsalu that is beloved by the alternative youth of the small town. It's located in an old wooden house that once was probably the summer estate of an upper middle class family. Meaning that its original details are not as simple as those of an average town house and yet not as eloquent as a richer family would've wanted. Because of that, the ceilings are not decorated with stucco but are rather put together similarly to a parquet.



And the last picture of the batch. One thing I've liked about old houses is that there are sometimes different doors from different time eras. It's a quirky feature that one cannot see often and so I figured I, too, shall have a house like that.

That's it. The rest of the house is not furnished yet, since I need to go to bed now. Twas fun, though.
