This is my entry for SimPearls' Wallpaper Makes The Room September 2021 - called Undersea Bathroom.

The walls are based on the tile pattern in the first instance - I downloaded the original graphic file but fiddled with the image quite a bit.  Then I did an inset painted pattern as the top half.  As on other occasions, I created more walls than I was allowed to enter for the contest because I like to fiddle about and try things out.  I include those here.  The first two were entered into the contest and are called: Full (i.e. the full tiled wall) and Turquoise; the other two are labelled Beach Shells and Turtles.  They can be found in Tiling and cost $8.  This is the full swatch:

  Decorative, Wall Art: Society 6 Prints
Posted by: maxon - 02-08-21, 11:50 PM - Forum: Buy Mode Objects - No Replies

I made this CC for the Christmas in July event 2021 at Garden of Shadows.  After I got done with making the present I made for Infinite Iterations as part of the event, I decided to make these pictures as a Stocking Stuffer because I was bashing out lots of textures for recolours anyway and how can one (or six) more pictures files hurt? I'd had the images hanging around for ages and I really like them.  

   

So, these are six prints made for the It Will Last Longer picture mesh from Thread and Sandpaper - I really like this mesh because of its nice clean lines.  

The prints themselves are from Society6 - something else I really like because of the lovely and interesting images you can see there.  I'd recommend a visit. The pictures are top-bottom, left-right: Sunflowers and Bee; Fox in Quiet Forest; Because the Ocean; World to See; Cat in Flower Garden; Cat in the Garden.

Posted by: maxon - 31-07-21, 03:10 PM - Forum: Buy Mode Objects - No Replies

This is my third post for the Garden of Shadows Christmas in July event 2021 of CC I made.  I made a cafe lot for Infinite Iterations (details here) and I went a little mad and made 12 recolours of the Nengi65 rug mesh (look, there were so many nice terxtures!  I could have made more!).  I like this particular mesh because you can recolour a complete rug pattern (many EAxis meshes are doubled up in the mapping meaning they have to use symmetrical patterns).  There is a copy of the meshes if you need them here - these are my own edits of the meshes and are not quite the same as the original files as adapted I them for my own use.  There is an explanation of what I did with these meshes on that thread.
   

The download is split into two to reduce the filesizes for download, 6 recolours per rar.

  Basta Cafe Walls plus Nordic Cladding for Badstrand Cafe
Posted by: maxon - 31-07-21, 02:45 PM - Forum: Walls, Floors and Terrain Paints - No Replies

I made these walls for the Garden of Shadows Christmas in July event 2021.  I made a cafe lot for Infinite Iterations (details here) and there were two lots of walls to go with it.

Basta Café Walls
The first group is called Basta Café walls.  These are a remake of some walls I made a (very) long time ago and I'm much happier with these neater, better textured versions.  They are for an interior of a cafe and feature nice coffee brown walls with a coffee cup logo and birch trimmings.  There is also a cream version of the plaster wall because, as I found with my 'research' for the event, many Nordic interiors have white or cream plaster walls with only accent walls in colour.  They cost $7 and can be found in Paint and in Panelling.

Nordic Exterior Cladding
The second group is a pair of exterior walls for the café - one dark and one in paler birchwood.  These can be found under Siding also for $7.  The paler birchwood cladding (used on the interior of the balcony of the cafe) was not included in the original upload to GoS.

Posted by: maxon - 27-07-21, 03:03 PM - Forum: Lots: Commercial - Replies (1)

This is the thread to describe the café lot (Badstrand Café) I made for Infinite Iterations for the Garden of Shadows Christmas in July event 2021.  I made a variety of CC for the lot and there are pictures of the lot here, the lot file itself (eventually) and links to the CC I made and used on the lot.  I have distributed the CC around the rest of the site because it all comes under different categories.  I will (eventually) post a file on Sims File Share with everything together in one rar file for convenience.  I'll post the link for that later.

This picture is a quick overview of the CC I made - it includes a table and chair inspired by Alver Aalto (a Norwegian designer); a planter inspired by Scandinavian design; potless plants; rugs; pictures and one of the interior walls
   

This is the exterior of the lot showing one of the exterior walls and the birch columns and gable piece

This is my entry for the Sim Pearls Wallpaper Makes the Room contest for June 2021.  The theme was 'retro' and, as that is a fairly flexible term these days, I decided to make a 30s style art deco fan wallpaper with a toning plaster wall to go with it.  Special features include the geometric crown design and the lush cream fan pattern.

   

As usual, when I designed the walls, I went through a number of other possibilities and also include here three other colour ways using the same crown and skirting.  All designs are based on Art Deco style fan patterns.  There is a green fan design with a green plaster wall, a silver fan design with black plaster wall and a gold fan design with dark blue plaster walls.
