Hi Marie, I was actually thinking the same thing, but looking at Bates Motel / the Psycho film the interior looks more Victorian / Gothic / Vintage. But I guess we are allowed our own take on it, as Michelle said.. :)

.... And oh dear I just realised I have been thinking about this completely wrong, I have been thinking bedroom in the main house, not the motel... Oh dear lord, back to the drawing board...  lolol

Just to clarify a few things...It isn't necessary for you to take a photo of the outside of the motel...however you can if you want to...that is entirely up to you :0
 And this DOES NOT have to be an exact replica from the movie...just an eerie atmosphere'd motel room...that would make you think of getting stabbed in the shower will work...lol...sorry

So half walls/fences...against the rules, or do they count with the design elements?

I know the movie is from 1960 but the furniture must be from that era or we can use a little more modern furniture?
Does it matter if we decorate the room before or after Marion have rented it?
Or even after the murder?
I hope someone understands what I mean.


I'm shooting for a smungy 1960's motel that you would find waaaay off the beaten path.

Great questions all! Congrats to the top 5, your builds really were top notch, thank you!

Yep, just got a question: can we ADD walls/half walls, as long as we don't change or remove the existing ones? For instance, if I want to compartementalize the toilet away from the tub, or divide up the large bedroom space?
Also, when you said "a small table and two chairs", did you mean a dining room table specifically?

Thank you Michelle!

So, deco wall pieces that are partial size walls are okay as long as they are deco and NOT from the Wall Tool? (Think minc's wall pieces/arches)


(Just clarifying...) Thank you :D

Michelle: I laughed out loud with delight when I saw your JFF entry for Bates Motel room.  Even made my husband come and look at it (and he could care less about Sims games) because it is just wonderful.  You captured it perfectly.  And that shower curtain...it is so terribly perfect.  Love it.  Great start to round 2 of DOTY.
