The ease!

I wish real life was as easy as point-click-ooo, new wallpaper-hate the carpet-point click-ooo, hardwood floors, but I think the sofa needs updating-point-click, you get the picture.

I agree with starrsim :D

Also, it is cool that I can make so many pretty homes with the game, I couldn't afford that in real life, but at least my Sims have beautiful homes!

With the amount of CC out there its so easy to create spaces that I actually would love to have in real life but would never be able to afford.

Yeah, the stacks of simoleons stacked on the table waiting to be spent and the nicest part would be decorating without limits, and the fact that you can delete something off without thinking its a waste. And yes, you can practice different styles of decorating without the fear that you will make it look ugly because of the "don't like it, replace it" rule. ;D

Along with being unlimiting wealthy to provide my sims with their most expensive tastes.... I do love the CC out there and the ability to recolor and make my imagination alive. I, too, build homes I would love to live in. My recolors reflect my tastes. I rarely download rugs, paintings or other recolors unless it's in a shade I can use. I like the individuality of it.

This is going to sound vain, but I really like seeing the end result framed in a picture. Of course, not all rooms lend themselves to good pictures. But if not, just furnishing them in different themes in rewarding enough.

Create something I most likely will never have in real life.

my favorite part is seeing everything at the end. (not necessarily in a picture since I have such a hard time taking them) Every room seems to be a challenge for me these days and sometimes it takes me hours or days to finish one room and weeks to finish a house. But in the end when I see my sim using everything and moving throughout the house with a high environment score, it really makes my day.  ;D I also really like the ability to express the different styles and personalities of my sims in their individual spaces. In a sense I am sure that these styles are maybe my own very weird tastes, but in the sims it is free and I can try so many different things without spending any money.  :hehe: Another thing I like is trying to figure out how I can work with the space in a room. sometimes rooms are very small or large or have weird shapes, etc. so it is always an interesting challenge to make everything work and look nice when the spaces are hard to decorate.

so yeah....enough of my ramblings  :-[

I really like the freedom of it, you can add and change without it ever costing a penny.

I love all the possibilites we have now with cc! We can make our homes look just the way we want them. I can make my RL dreams come true without costing any RL money!! :)

When I start decorating I usually have something in mind, but sometimes my rooms take over and go their own way! By this I mean, I start off with a certain color or style in mind, then when I'm going thru the catalog, I see something that I just know goes in this particular room, and it's not the color or style that I was originally going for! So I guess I'm really inspired by the catalogs sometimes  ;D

I love how it all comes together and that sometimes the end result is completely different then how I started, or what I had in mind.

Being able to use all the bright colors I want, that no one would ever agree to letting me to to my real house.
B/F would freak over bright pink walls and teal sofa's...lol.
And the finished product. I rarely finish a whole house, but when I do, I feel all tingly. or maybe that's the coffee.... ;D

Oh, man... you're so right! The last time I decorated a whole house, I put the last piece of furniture in and then looked out the window... to see the sun rising. I had started at 11pm!! :( It was totally worth it, though. ;D

I love the fact that you don't have to worry about how much money you have to spend :P What is more, I like how easy is to paint, demolish and rebuilt the parts of the house yoy don't like.

Totally agree with you - only thing is that when we are working on our RL house my husband thinks I'm crazy when I say something like "well just move that wall a little bit".  ;D

LOL, I can imagine "move this a square left" or "I need a three-squares sofa"  ;D

I have that too. I love that feeling, everything is going right, and that's my favourite part, when you know what piece will look perfectly in what place. Then sitting back and looking at that room or house, knowing that you couldn't have decorated it better. I guess it's the sense of accomplishment *lol*
