You guys are doing so well on this challenge. Some lovely ideas working out the space to fit the sim. What I find most intriguing is that everyone is blowing me away with the backyard. I say it'll be nice to feature these in the magazine, for outdoor patios/yards. Something like that. Smile

First of all, let me say how shocked I am that I made it through the first round. I thought there would be no way I would make it with all those amazing entries. Second, this round has some amazing talent! I have no idea how you guys do it.

Here is my apartment for Violet. I am not totally happy with it but, my computer was lagging and I was just getting frustrated. So here it is.

Violet is very ambitious and spends more time at work then at home. But, when she is home it is nice to have a cozy, inviting space to come into. The wall are a rich brown to make the space very warm and there is lots of storage because Violet is very neat and hates messes. Throughout the house, there are many candles to light the house in order to preserve energy. There are also very few window coverings in order to take andvantage of the great natural light.

DONE. SO DONE. I have no idea if I grasped the "eco-chic" style at all... but I'll offer explanations for some of my design choices.

New Fridge

Violet chose to use salvaged wood floors throughout her home, and the wood on the walls came from a responsibly managed lumber yard.

Natural fibers on the couch, and a reclaimed trolley table:

[Image: Screenshot-1265.jpg]
Reading Chair and 2 Bookshelves (and an Architectural Portfolio functioning as an E-Reader)

1 shower

Large Work Area: Violet was able to find used built-ins at a garage sale which she uses as storage under her desk and to display her textbooks from school.
[Image: Screenshot-1317.jpg]

A cool tidbit on the chair: It's made from recycled airplane parts!
[Image: Screenshot-1315.jpg]
(Violet had a copy of her diploma blown up and framed)

Since Violet has the neat trait, her nightstand is very clean. She usually sets her E-Reader there when she's done reading for the night.
[Image: Screenshot-1253.jpg]

Violet repurposed old doors she found at several thrift stores as an interesting backdrop to her backyard entertaining area.
[Image: Screenshot-1307.jpg]

You can kind of see a bit of Violet's saltwater pool... a more environmentally friendly option.
[Image: Screenshot-1304.jpg]

Summary of Violet's eco-friendly finds: Lots of windows increase air circulation, cutting down on the need for heating and cooling. Her rugs are vintage handwoven kilim rugs that she found at a small consignment store. Reclaimed wood floors, and trolley table. The lumber on the walls came from responsibly managed forests. The cabinets feature water based glue, and no formaldehyde. Her desk chair is made with metal from a scraped airplane. Her pool is a saltwater pool.

If you're curious there are more pictures in my album. I'll make a post of my thoughts on everyone's entries after the round closes tomorrow! Good luck everyone :]

Everyone's entries are so inspiring! I can't wait to use some of the ideas on my own sims' houses!

Violets apartment has bamboo flooring and a lot of concrete elements. My overall approach was a sleek, modern space with recycled accents.

[Image: Screenshot-24.jpg]
Required item: Bicycle

As soon as you walk in the door you see a table made of stained wood from an old crate, and some retro lamps Violet found for cheap at her local thrift store.
[Image: Screenshot-105.jpg]

The colors in Violets kitchen might seem too vibrant to some, but she loves how much energy she can get just by walking into the room. She found the two lampshades on the side of the road, and spruced them up with a coat of black spray paint. The tin ceiling was going to be thrown away by a local deli, but Violet saved it from the trash.

Violet's bedroom is the perfect place to relax after a long day at work. Having a fireplace in her room makes her feel like a queen, even if she would never light it.
[Image: Screenshot-26.jpg]

[Image: Screenshot-20.jpg]
Required item: Shower

Violets favorite part of her house, by far, is her back yard. With a pool in the shape of a stream, a little cluster of fruit trees to read under, and even a 2 story windmill, being in it makes her forget that she lives in a city...

Especially while taking care of her two favorite animals, Mary and Floyd.
