Where are you from?
I am a Native New Yorker

What do you do in real life?
At the moment I am an unemployed Interior Designer, who is getting into the real estate field with my new found free time. When life hands you lemons, patent a new lemonade recipe Wink

What is your favourite design style?
My favorite style is hands down eclectic. I enjoy mixing and matching all styles until the right balance is struck. However whatever elements have been chosen, color is always my most used tool.

How long have you been playing sims?
I've been playing Sims since Sim City 4, lol. In other words, I've played since Sims 1. I used to create buildings in SC4 for my brother, and he told me that there would soon be a game that incorporated just the little "sims" and I could design the interiors too. I've been an addict ever since.

When did you start decorating?
Umm, I'd have to say since I was a little girl when I'd built a college dorm for my Barbies out of the cardboard box our brand new fridge came in. My parents always encouraged my imagination so long as I cleaned up afterward, lol.

What are the 3 favourite design ideas you used in this contest?

1. I really enjoyed creating the hot tub area, actually the entire yard for for Round 4. I feel the light panels and the fishtanks give the space an cool VIP vibe.

2. I really love the various art installations and overall brightness of the livingroom in round 1, Especially in the entryway. I think it gives voice to Deana's artistic vibe, and use of discarded items.

3. The combination of metal, aged wood and brick of round 3. It reminds of the meatpacking district here in NY, and some recording studios I've been to.

I've really had a blast throughout this contest. It has also been quite a challenge, forcing me at times out of my comfort zone. But overall it's been funNod

Tiki5872 I love Awesome Sims' stuff....she does make a few things for we TS2'ers, and I was thrilled to find a conversion of the set you used in Granny's place! Yaaaay! \o/

Trumpets0ng - beautiful work. Love the walls and what you've done with the wooden ceilings. I feel transported back to one of those cool 60's TV shows! The curtains are perfectly mid-century. Particularly like the dining room set, the coffee table and that spectacular mirror!

The floating fireplace on the patio is boss! What a great idea!

Granny and Fido look very content. Smile

We have judged round 5 and we now have a winner! victory

We excluded Sixtyteen's scores since she is a staffer. So it came down to either tiki5872 or Trumpets0ng who both did an amazing job in this final round.

partytime Congratulations tiki5872 you have won Sims Next Door with 83 points in this final round!

Trumpets0ng is the close runner up with 78 points. happy2

Thank you to everyone who took part in the contest. I hope you had fun because I know the judges did, though I think you did give us some grey hairs. You are all way to good and it was hard to have to eliminate anyone.

I hope we see you all in the next contest!
