Do you got a tip you want to shear with the rest of us for building or for decorating. Is there something you always do or some objects you like to put together? Perhaps a combination for colours? The best tips will be featured in the magazine.

If you got a picture to illustrate the top, then it is even better!

A small tip from me: don't mess up your rooms too much. They turn unrealistic with all this clutter. I mean, who wants or has a room that's so messy? Not me!  Smiley

Make a concept before you decorate your room. Then put in the main fabrics ( a great painting, a sofa, even a mirror etc) that will inspire you. then you could put the other fabrics on too. This is an easy way to mach the objects with each other

Add storage things.  Like drawers and baskets under beds and tables.  It looks more realistic because then sims look like they have "stuff" too...and not just furniture.  Smiley

Use nature/city murals behind windows to make the room more realistic and photogenic!

I like to have my room full with clutter. I tried to do the same irl. But I'm just a neat freak. So.. most of my sims houses are full with clutter ;o

A tip from me..
Uh.. Don't use those dark colored sidings all together.
For example : Red along with Yellow ( or other wrong combinations ). It just gives me a feeling like a Clown family lives over there Embarrassed

What you mean is... don't yous primary colours together right? Like bold red, blue and yellow - it does look like a toy store or a clown's house

well a tip for the colors is to concentrate maybe on a special color combination and do nothing addtional...often it also good to combine maybe a colorful object with not so colorful to make this object to the visual center of the room...maybe combine orange or somethinglike that with brown or grey tones...

also often a good decision is to bring the color into your rooms with walls ...maybe only a part of the wall become red and right and left it is white...

because of furniture i really like to make style mixes...for example old and new...modern stylish and ordinary...something like that this i really like...maybe over a designer diningtable an old chandelier---i like that...

well i think this was it^^
