Eeep well it looks like I'm going first!
Where are you from?
I have lived in Christchurch, New Zealand all my life.
What do you do in real life?
I'm a freelance graphic designer - currently looking for an actual real design job though!
What is your favourite design style?
I couldn't pick just one. I love elements of so many things - from the rich woods & prints of the arts & crafts style to the simple functionality and style of bauhaus and some modernist interiors. If I absolutely had to pick a style that had influenced me most of all it would be post WW2 era, Mid Century Modern I suppose you would say! I'm sure those who had visited my website would say that too :P
How long have you been playing sims?
I've played Sims since Sims 1! I came a bit late to the party with Sims 1 though, about a year after I started (I think), Sims 2 came out.
When did you start decorating?
Not til sims 2, I suppose. I guess I feel like I have always been decorating in some way...
What are the 3 favourite design ideas you used in this contest?
• From round 1, my favourite part of the whole place was the bright orange stairwell/hallway
. I would SO love to do something like that, but of course I'm sure I would just get sick of this outrageous bright colour taking over the room, but for sims, I LOVE it.
• In round 2, I enclosed the bed area in panelled dark wood
, and I love how it created a cozy warm space to sleep, with the added interest of cork on the wall as a sort of super-sized headboard.
• For round 4 I made the bathroom and bedroom one big room separated by a wall, and the thing I liked most was layering the mirrors
, with a the full wall mirror reflecting light and making the bathroom seem less of a corridor. I wish I was brave enough to buy a bright red sink IRL :P
