story blog are familiar with these two. Their house burned down-aka, I broke it ^_^ and after rebuilding a new house, they now need to decorate it. We're going to start with the living room.
I already chose the colors and patterns, but now I need to do some shopping. I personally perfer Maxis meshes, so the first stop is PiggiSims to see if there is anything that I like.
I find the sofa mesh that I want-but not the color. I make note of the sofa and the color choices I want for the seating.
along with the chair
or even this beautiful damask from Blake Boy's Annie Seating
I do determine that I will be using the Maxis Colonial Collection for most of the furnishings. The patterns give a nod to Jesse's contemporary desires so now I need artwork and rugs.
I tend to recolor my own rugs using a Maxis mesh to cut down on my downloads folder, so I am looking for rug patterns. I want something more contemporary to balance out the traditional seating and surfaces in the room.
For artwork, I take into account thier other interests like they both love jazz and love abstract art especially considering that their daughter is an art prodigy at the tender age of nine. I imagine that they would have several of her original works in the house. I picture them as fans of Debra Hurd's abstract jazz and cityscapes as well as Paul Brent's abstract jazz art
So with this in mind, I have a bit of recoloring to do, or not, and then we'll see the final product.
