Your posts are SO BEAUTIFUL!!! I looove your blog and you seem like a really sweet person. I do have 2 questions. 1- do you have any advice for building/decorating and also how do you edit your images?I have PS and Gimp but I barely know how to use them lol. Thanks so much for your time!!!
OMG I remember you, you already asked about decorating and i totally forgot about it o_o I’m so sorry, I remember your profile pic I’M SORRY I was at work, and I wanted to get home and do it with pics and all, and then I FORGOT LIKE A MORON THAT I AM. I’m so sorry, you’re so sweet. I’m at work again, so as to not risk forgetting about it again, I’ll just answer now.
Firstly, about building. I’m in no way as good as @jenba or @peacemaker-ic or countless other amazing builders, but I figured with building, it’s most important to just try everything. Most of us have those two windows we really like and use for everything, well forget those, try that one ugly green window you never used in your entire life, maybe it’ll give it some charm. Add wood to EVERYTHING. I like nature, and I like natural looking houses, i’m not really big into minimalism or these modern b&w schemes, I like brown, and green, and colours, lived in, family feel to it. I play legacies, so my legacy houses usually start with one bedroom and then slowly add onto it, so they come out these mismatched attrocities, but with some charm to them. But I can’t do second floors lol did you notice that my houses never actually have any rhyme nor reason to their second floors xD I FORGET THE STAIRS. I keep forgetting stairs and then I have no place to fit them in, and they just end up a eyesore. Really, building, it’s not something I’m very good at, but I try.
When it comes to decorating, my secret is CLUTTER. No really, just clutter everything. Look at your own house and remember how you were reading a book and then your whoever-you-live-with called you to come over and you stood up, dropped the book on a side table on your way, next to a mug of hot coco. And then there’s that endtable next to the entrance with the bowl for the keys, but the actual keys are next to the fridge, but you’re currently being called over by whoever-you-live-with to help them look for the keys in the bedroom. Yeah, well, that’s my decorating style. Plus, I’m european, I like smaller rooms with more furniture and decoration. Big empty spaces are a no no for me. I always hated those big rooms with just a sofa and a tv and I’m like “what’s with all the empty, you doing cha cha cha??” No, you put everything you have including those five sofas your family’s been inheriting since ppl still used leaches in medicine. We cha cha cha in the backyard like civilized ppl.
Bear in mind, the more stuff you put and the darker the tones you use are, the smaller and more lived in the room is going to look.
I hope this helps, I’m not really an expert, but I try, that all any of us can do.
I’m sorry again for not answering the first time ♥♥
