Bloom - Eric’s Backyard (Summer Party Scene)

Dear Friend,

You are invited to my annual end-of-summer party at my place on August 20th at 123 Westbrook Lane in Linton, IL. My band and I will be playing our new songs and Nirvana covers. I will provide pizza, chips, cookies, pop, beer, and whatever else people show up with. We have a pool so bring a swimsuit. I’m not paying for a lifeguard so don’t get in the pool if you can’t swim. No RSVP needed. Bring whoever you want. Party starts at 9 pm - whenever I kick you out. Hope you can come.

-Eric Whitfield


Bloom - Eric’s Completed Bedroom + A New Closet!

I decided to build a closet for Eric and worked on it in my live stream last night. Today I added some finishing touches and this is the result. This was my first time building a walk-in closet and I’m super happy with how it looks. Can’t wait to film some scenes here :-)

You can see the first version of his room here.


Bloom - Sonali’s Bedroom

At 15, Sonali Chopra is the youngest of the Bloom students. She’s a shy, quiet girl who loves science. Sonali’s parents are somewhat overbearing and she’s ready for more freedom to make her own choices, but she’s unsure of how to express that to her parents. Throughout the series, Sonali gains more self-confidence and realizes she’s capable of more than she ever thought possible.

Sorry there are so many pictures. I got a bit carried away with the photos and couldn’t narrow them down :-P


Bloom WIP - Holt Family Living Room

Here’s part of what was done in my live stream last night. This is the Holt family’s living room. Like Ian and Trevor’s room, the furniture is a mixture of pieces picked up at thrift stores and yard sales as they can’t afford complete sets from the furniture store. The bucket is there to catch rainwater since the roof leaks :-/

I plan to add family photos once they’re moved in, toys for the kids, more wall hangings, and miscellaneous things to make it really look like eight people live there.

Special thanks go to Slyndsey, Esotheria-sims, and Wickedgamessims2 for their inspiration and advice for decorating this room!


WIP - Elle & Nicolette’s Beach Cottage

This was redecorated in last night’s short live stream. It’ll be seen in Forever 21 before the series is over, possibly in Episode 8. Twin sisters Elle and Nicolette live here. They’re going for a “modern coastal” style.

It’s been forever since I opened my game and I feel so out of touch with decorating. *sigh* :-/


Bloom WIP - Baranofsky Family Living Room

In 1982, Mikolaj and Edyta Baranofsky and their young daughters, Kasia and Julia, immigrated to Linton, IL from their town in Poland. Fifteen years and one son later, the Baranofskys are among Linton’s wealthiest residents. As a member of the Linton School Board, Mikolaj sees to it that his children receive nothing but the finest education, which includes the rigorous curriculum that Oak Ridge Gifted Center provides.

Julia, being the spotlight-lover that she is, couldn’t resist showing off her musical prowess in the last picture.

These photos, as usual, are completely unedited. For the first time, I’m trying in-game light rays and they’ve seriously taken my sets and decorating to a whole new level. They make interiors look so much warmer!


Forever 21 WIP - Coffee Shop Makeover

Makeover and expansion of a downloaded coffee shop for Episode 7. Next additions will be wall art and food/drink clutter. I can’t remember the original creator so please let me know if you recognize the lot so I can credit them. As I type this, it’s very late and I can hardly keep my eyes open and I’m queuing this. Meaning, I doubt anything I wrote was coherent.


Coleman High aka Oak Ridge Gifted Center - 2nd Floor Photos - Part 2

[Part 1 here] These are photos of the Oak Ridge Gifted Center library, complete with older computers in keeping with the time period that the series is set. It’s still a bit of a work in progress. I’m not 100% sold on the wallpaper I used and the room needs a few more paintings. This is where Mabry and the gang will come to do research, work on projects, and plot world domination.

Threw in 2 photos of the stairwell just because.


Happy Anniversary, Cahuna Beach High!

7 years ago today, I uploaded the first episode of my very first sims series, Cahuna Beach High. It was the beginning of an era… Okay, maybe that was an overstatement… Happy 7th Anniversary, CBH! There’s a special anniversary video coming later today. :-)
