You'll get to see the source of my frustrations the last few days.

I was looking for a different dining room set. I really didn't like the one I had. So, I downloaded about 20 different sets. Each and every one I tried didn't look right. Until finally, I found this one and gave up. Circular table with a circular rug. Plus, the rug fits with the deco of the house. WHEW!
Edward's Escalating Escapades Snapshot_b66e840b_36b236f9

While in my travels, I found this "Reading Room" over at TSR. One look and I had to have it.
This is the artwork/picture that came with the set. You ca see his Starbucks coffee and the journal he writes in......NOT! It's deco. The black bookcase is part of the set.
Edward's Escalating Escapades Snapshot_b66e840b_56b2347c

Moving along....He's more of the set. The self has five useable slots. The magazine and the pyramid comes with the set also. On the right side, there's a red coffee cup and saucer, just can't see it. And, HORRORS! Michael smokes!! YIKES!
Edward's Escalating Escapades Snapshot_b66e840b_56b2368d

A differet view of the set. The bookcases at the bottom of the picture come with the set also. And, on the right wall, one of three pictures that are my pride and joy!
Edward's Escalating Escapades Snapshot_b66e840b_36b23600

Here, I was working on his bedroom....again. The set that Sugah helped me with crashed my game. I'm so sorry honey. All we went through and it crashed.

You should've heard me when it crashed. I sat here going, DIRTY BLANK BLANK. WE GO THORUGH ALL THE BLANK AND THIS BLANK BLANK HAPPENS, THIS JUST BLANKING BITES. Unknown to me at the time, my neighbor was looking through the livingroom window, he had that look like I lost a few screws. So, I snapped back, GO AHEAD AND PUT ME ON BLANKING OPRAH.

So when all else fails, go back to the orginal. Now, I'm a tad bit confused. I've got three different pictures. I'm undecided on the wallpaper.

Each wallpaper carries the same basic theme, just different colors.

Red. This might be too dark. Another one of three pictures that's my pride and joy!
Edward's Escalating Escapades Snapshot_b66e840b_b6b24015

Grey. I think this is too dark.
Edward's Escalating Escapades Snapshot_b66e840b_b6b2402f

White. I think this is just too plain and dull.

Oh Ed!!!

LOL I'm not laughing AT you......but your description of everything and the situations you've been put in. Creating, decorating and designing can be a pain My Friend.

I want to tell you though - nothing you've ever posted here is dull. NOTHING. No Way I think anyone can see the thought you put into the designing of rooms that you do. I see it and I think it always looks fabulous.

LOVE the incident with your neighbor!

Yell Just let it all out Mister! We're here for you and we don't think you've lost a few screws.

Thank you, my friend.

The situation with the bedroom set is an edited version. Naturally I'm a psycho if I'm sitting here cussing at my computer screen. I feel bad for Sugah, I sent her a message asking her if she would help me out since SimControl is in Spanish. She did what she could, but did in fact point me in the right direction. I found a translation button and looking and using my (short) memory did the rest. And, that bedroom set was perfect for Michael. CRUD!

Everytime I look at a room I've done, I always go, I can do better. Thus starts my mad downloading sprees and escalating blood pressure.

Thank you for letting me vent. Rare, I do something like that.

My dear Sunshine, the dining table you had before looked very pretty to me, but I do like this round glass one also, especially with that perfect round rug! Bravo!

That 'Reading Set' is GORGEOUS! I LOVE that picture and the Starbucks cup, lol! Great fine! Bravo!

Sorry about the bedroom set that did not work for you, I know how disappointing that can be when you find something that looks perfect but it messes up your game... Sorry

I'm so sorry about your game crashing after all that, Ed! That sucks, big time. Everything was just gorgeous. You have such a flair for color and balance - I always love looking at your rooms. I loved the red bedroom, by the way, and didn't think it looked too dark at all.

First of all, if I haven't said how fabulous I think red, black and white look together, I'm saying it now.
I LOVE that combination. Probably as much as I love soft blue, yellow and white together, especially for seaside retreat decor.

Anyhoo, Ed, I LOVE IT! What a gorgeous abode! You have impeccable taste and a true gift for decorating and pulling everything together to make it look just right.

Must...have...that...circular...table & chair set...PLEASE! I love the smaller ones and use them often.
I love the tall vases/pottery, too, in the living area. What a find!
Do those gorgeous, long windows that look etched come in white, by any chance?

I must admit, the wall decor I created from Harry's abstract art looks really good in game. I can't take credit for that, since the art IS Harry's, but I really like how they spiff up a room.

What a bummer! I wonder why it caused your game to crash? It was a beautiful set. That's too bad, Ed.
I don't blame you for being ticked off after you finally found out how to download the dang set!
I'm sorry about that, hon. Have you ever had any trouble with other items from that site?
It's a shame you finally found the set you wanted and your dang game crashes. UGH!

You'd asked WHICH wall we all like for the bedroom. I'm not crazy about the design on it for some reason, but if I had to choose, I like the white best. It may not be the most exciting choice, but appeals to my eyes the most.

Thank you SO much for sharing what's going on in your game.
I look forward to the ongoing Escalating Escapades of Edward's! Kiss

If you remember Michael's Bedroom, I had to change the wallpaper and floor. It kept coming out too dark and some things on the floor wasn't showing up. Sugah knows my frustrations from reading my thread over at Thyme2Sim. I couldn't find a floor to go with the wallpaper I chose And, I was adamant a.k.a. stubborn that I wanted a wooden floor. To make a long story short, it involved, Valium, an extra large can of Monster Energy Drink, a half a pack of cigarettes and four packages of Jack Link's All American Beef and Cheese sticks.

Sooooooo, this is how it looks now.
How I came up with this wallpaper was, I picked a color out from the rug. The floor is Golden Bamboo.
Edward's Escalating Escapades Snapshot_b66e840b_b6bcce1e

Then I found this floor. Kinda funky, kinda busy looking.
Edward's Escalating Escapades Snapshot_b66e840b_b6bcce51

This is his new diningroom and kitchen.
Edward's Escalating Escapades Snapshot_b66e840b_36bcd1e5
I kinda like the wallpaper I used on the half wall. It looks like it's "layered" wood. Might take it off. The kitchen looks "iffy"

Here's a part of the livingroom
Edward's Escalating Escapades Snapshot_b66e840b_56ba2670

Here's a slightly further shot of the living room. The side table goes with the diningroom set.
Edward's Escalating Escapades Snapshot_b66e840b_56bcd234

The only rooms you will not see for the time being is, the music room and office/study. I'm waiting on something to be created. When I do get it, I'll show it off.

Hello my dear Sunshine! This is my opinion on the bedroom I preferred the darker colors you had before they made the room stand out more. I don’t like this mustard color at all, and unfortunately that color on the floor makes the gorgeous rug disappear.

I agree the wall you had before with those patterns made the room look too busy. If you could find a wall the same color as that big stripe on the bedspread (looks like cinnamon) and try that out with a dark wood floor see how that looks. Also the green/blue on the windows behind the headboard doesn’t match with anything in the room.

The kitchen/dining room: I really like the dining room furniture and that wallpaper you used on the half wall! But I think overall it needs a few dark colors. Try using darker brown wood for the kitchen cabinets I think that will make the half walls stand out more. I’m not too sure about the kitchen floor, maybe with the darker cabinets it will look OK.

Definitely the floor area under the dining table should be darker to help the table stand out more.

The living room furniture is very cute, and I love that area rug! Crush

Yes, Ma'am! I shall follow your suggestions!

Actually, I was sitting here nodding my head agreeing with you. I liked what I had before, but, some things weren't showing up that I had on the floor. The whole concept of the bedroom was to make it bold and make a statement. Masculine. That's why I went with darker colors.

I already changed the kitchen. I used a dark wood cabinet with like a tan/beige "granite" conter top. And, I put down a marble floor. The only thing I didn't do was, change the color of carpet uunder the dining room table. That I will do when I go back in the game.

Plus, you get to see the added bonus of Michael, resting in his hammock!

Bravo! Ed!

The colors and patterns are fanfreakingtastic!!

ARE you going to start an Interior Design Firm????

I really think you should do that. I think people should be able to come to you with their undecorated Sims houses and YOU do your magic. IF you do decide to do that my Friend - I'm first in line!!!!! Thanks

I like those windows more everytime I see them and I love all the earthy & neutral tones and couldn't agree with this more:

I've been taking a break doing Michael's house and working on TJ and Charles house.

What I decided to do was, using their fantastic picture (thank you Lady Z and Sugah) and bedding made for me by VADixieGal and still keeping within the original blue and white theme, I turned the house into a beach type theme.

Starting off, here's the bedroom with the bedding made by VADixieGal. The bed isn't made. Excuse me and them. I'm still working with the wallpaper.
Edward's Escalating Escapades Snapshot_563e5f4b_36c04adc
Now, the bedding, I have two different types. The one you see, blue fitted sheet, green pillows. The other one is, a green fitted sheet with blue pillows.

Then, I found this cloudy wall art. If you ask me, tacky.
Edward's Escalating Escapades Snapshot_563e5f4b_96c04a43

Now, for the backyard.

And, the Hubble Telescope took this picture.
Edward's Escalating Escapades Snapshot_563e5f4b_76c04b41

I still have to put a grill and table in. Make it really.....Beachin'!

I have always been partial to beach homes. I think I posted somewhere before, that in addition to the red, black and white use of colors, I also love the soft blue, yellow and white combo... ESPECIALLY for beach houses. I love, love, love that outdoor patio furniture, Ed.

Fabulous, dahling.

Thank you. Yes, Sugah, I've read about how much you love the beach. Many years ago when I was on vacation in Santa Barbara, I was lucky enough to get a hotel room right across the streeet from the beach. All I had to do was, put my bathing suit on and cross the street. I never had the desire to come home. But, sadly reality set in and I had to.

I'm still working on Michael's bedroom. Get a load of the wallpaper behind the bed. In game, they cost a hundred bucks per panel. SHEESH! Plus, I followed Lady Z's suggestion a found a wallpaper to just about match the one large stripe. I'll explain the half wall in just a moment.
Edward's Escalating Escapades Snapshot_b66e840b_d6c0c7f4

The half wall.....
Edward's Escalating Escapades Snapshot_b66e840b_56c0d303
The idea for that came from the vase on the floor and the carpet. It goes with nothing. But, see the slippers on the floor? I found these walk around "hacks" over at MTS2. How they work is, you put a square on the floor, then an object, then turn it invisibible. Michael doesn't walk around it, he steps over it.

Lady Z, suggested I find a darker color of carpet for under the dining room table so it stands out. I found this.

I knew eventually I'd get it right. That is not a rug, per se. That's a wooden floor underneath the dining room table, I found roaming the highways and byways of Sim sites.

And, I'm leaving his bedroom just the way it is. I'm not changing one **&#$%$%&* thing.

I've been working on his office and bathrooms. But, take a close look at his desk and tell me what you see.

Oh, it's gorgeous, Ed. The bedroom is perfect. I love the "hundred bucks per panel" (outrageous, btw) wall. Very unique.
All of the accessories you've found and furniture for both the bdrm and dng room are fabulous.
You must put a lot of time (and patience) into finding just the right items for each room. Don't know how you do it!

The Michael McDonald cds on his desk are a hoot, btw. Did you have someone make those for you special?

Great job, as always. Fantastic

Yes. I put a request in over at BlackPearl to recolor the CD accessory over at AroundTheSims and I just got it today! I supplied a few pictures and she found a few more. I'm really jazzed over it.

Usually how I find things Im looking for is, I always keep a mental picture in my head of the entire house. If I run across something that has a possiblity, I take a good long look at it and merge it with one of the rooms.

Take the floor under the dining room table for example. I saw the one floor, put six squares together, and set the entire dining room set on top of it. The picture was already on the wall. So, I sat here and went, hmmmm.

The outrageous wall panels behind the bed. I saw those and said, come to daddy! I just knew I was going to find a place for those in his bedroom. Same thing with the wallpaper on the half wall. I had the carpet and that vase already pictured in my head.

Same thing with TJ and Charles. I have a mental picture of their house. Very easy to do.

Since I'm working on TJ and Charles now, thought I'd show off a bit.

Susie/VADiexieGal over at Thyme2Sim, made me this bedding out of a texture/image I found online. The whole house is being decorated around these colors.

This only the bedroom.
Edward's Escalating Escapades Snapshot_563e5f4b_36c04adc

This is a wall hanging Sugah Sim made for me from my desktop wallpaper.
Edward's Escalating Escapades Snapshot_563e5f4b_b6c424f3

If you look real close at their nightstands you'll see something interesting.
Edward's Escalating Escapades Snapshot_563e5f4b_f6c4250d

Downstairs, I got someone over at, Black Pearl Sims, to recolor one of their diningroom sets for me using the same pattern as the bedding. This came out really nice.
Edward's Escalating Escapades Snapshot_563e5f4b_96c4256a

If you look close, you'll see the table has a tiny green trim on it.
Edward's Escalating Escapades Snapshot_563e5f4b_56c425aa

She did the table chairs, sideboard and lights for me. I only asked for the table, chairs and sideboard. The lights were an added bonus. The placesettings I found on my travels to here and there. Remember, I keep an image of both houses in my head.

I love those bright springy colors. You sure have a knack, Ed.

Thank you, Ari!

Back to Michael's place.

I got a new mesh to from Black Pearl. A Songwriter's Award. It's got a chrome look to it and it even reflects light. It's base game compatible and very low poly. Less than 500.

In his living room......I found a globe to put on one of the end tables.

Then, I found this picture.

His music room. Get a load of this painting I found. And, I already know the piano is in the way.

Now for the rest. I spent over two hours yesterday decorating. Plus a another hour or so this morning. Once I got the new award, I started changing things again. I tore down a wall, then put it back up, tore it down, back up it went. I swear that wall got more action than I do. Geeze! Anyhoo, I'm still not happy with the outcome. But, I did find a nice piano painting. I think the floor might be the problem.

Everything looks fabulous, Ed. Those beachy-type colors look great together. Love the way it turned out!

I am thinking of using that Nordsee image (is that a German town and/or seafood restaurant or something?) in my own game, but maybe just getting rid of the "Nordsee" word on the tag and putting the name of the family (whose abode it will be hanging in) instead. Hmmm..

I love the pic over the tv. It's one of Kate's at Parsimonious. I have several of that type, as I have always liked the size and style of it.
They're called Arabatics Paintings.
The vases on either side of the tv are gorgeous, too.

Thank you for sharing!
