Everyone's entries are always so superb, I'm sorry to see some of us out of the running.
I'm so excited that my name was on the list of contestants going forward -- excited and already stressing out.
Good luck to all the other people going forward!

I was sure I was going to go this time -I wasn't feeling confident with my entry- but I guess I'll be eliminated after this round because I know nothing about the theme, I have nothing fitting in the modern bedroom category in my game and I don't know where to start lol

I also have a question about the accent wall. I'm not sure what this is, I thought it was some kind of fake wall, like a divider but the guidelines state that we must not use dividers. so I really have no clue... any suggestions?

An accent wall is like a feature wall, it might be papered rather than painted or a different colour than the other walls. If you google accent wall you should get some ideas. It's a common feature in the UK at the moment to paint all walls but paper just one.

This is an example of an accent wall...
 It is just a wall that is a different color...etc  than the others...however, you can use wood brick stone or anything as long as it is different from the other three walls

Thank you girls! Actually I feel a little embarrassed because I have two accent walls in my room. The two walls are wallpapered and the other two plain white, I just had no idea it was called like that  lolhippo

Good luck to everyone who is still in :) :) :)

I think you will do well, xoneirox. You made lovely entries for the other rounds you were unfamiliar so I'm thinking we'll see something quite nice from you this round, too.

I have a couple-few questions, too, after browsing the net for ideas.
1. Do all the walls but the accent wall need to be white? I saw some rooms where the walls were bold colors with a wallpaper for the accent wall. Just wondering. Still can't make my mind up on my color scheme.
2. The painting or pic of a dog -- must this be a dog alone or can there be other elements (trees, houses, people) in the painting? Must it be a painting, print, or photograph type pic or can the "dog" be a design element such as the focal point of a piece of decor?
3. Is it okay to use a two-, three- and four-tile window instead of 2, 3, and 4 windows?
4. Does the sliding mirror covered closet door count as a mirror for the round criteria? Can the mirror be in the closet or must it be in the bedroom? I'm trying to make the layout floating in my head cohesive.
5. Would a fireplace that juts out from a wall as part of the architecture, or one planted in the middle of a floor (ie white living fireplace) count as a divider and be a no-no? Just asking cuz I saw some sweet ideas on that nature, too.

Michelle can correct me if I am wrong...

kicicka777 - for the closet, if you choose to have a double door that is closed, you do not have to show the interior of the closet. But if you have a double door that is open, then decorating the closet would be a good idea.

Deatherella -
1 - walls can be any color you wish but at least 1 wall must be different (aka: accent wall)
2 - painting/picture of a dog...as long as a dog is in the picture...and it must be a picture/painting as she has specified in the must haves. If you also wish to have other elements of dogs in your decor (such as staues), that is up to you.
3 - You can use any combination of windows as long as windows are placed in the correct spots as specified in the floor plan.
4 - The mirror must be floor to ceiling...so if it was just on a door, that would not be as specified in the must haves. You can add a closet door with mirrors if you choose, but you must also have at least 1 floor to ceiling mirror.
5 - A fire place is not a wall, it is a part of deco. As long as you do not build a wall to place the fireplace on, it should be fine.

EDIT: Michelle will have to determine if a fireplace in the center of a room would be considered a "divider"

Dawn is correct on everything.... As long as the fireplace is " free standing" it is fine

xoneirox: I was sure I would go out after Round 2, so I go out for something as simple as an office. I do not know anything about contemporary decor I thought it was chrome, steel and glass, but it is apparently wrong. so I'll have to start over, or so it be as it gets. Good luck


Poppy100: You always write such nice things, and it's funny that you like what I do. I like your style furnishings, and the photos are so good-looking so I'm sure you'd get far. I have tried Sims 3 but I and the game will not agree I can not even download stuff to it, though I've tried, but I like the Sims 2 very much so it does not matter.
