PixelGum Tower – Sims 4 Decorate Challenge

Share:

Welcome to Chorna’s first The Sims 4 decoration challenge!

Backstory

The architect Fru-Fru Galley has won the bid to design, build, and decorate a prime piece of real estate in Pixel Town.

As usual, Ms Galley has exceeded everyone’s expectations and desires (perhaps even needs?!). She’s gone ahead and designed what she is calling “ze verld’s furrrzt multi-jjjjjenerrrrasiyanol combinasiyon home! Vunce you muve in, you neva need tu muve out!

The ground floor is a two bedroom modern apartment easily accessible to the elderly, while the smaller apartments upstairs are big enough for singletons looking to start out on their own.

Meanwhile the second floor (or third for you Americans), is the beginning of two dual-level homes big enough for parents and their children.

But disaster has struck! With the building’s architectural shape completed, Fru-Fru’s been taken ill – something about a “muuuuuuuuze” and a “perrrrrrspekteeev“, and she could not complete the final aspect of the ‘multi-generational combo-home’.

As her design intern, it’s up to you to complete her vision! Fill the homes with appliances, furnishings and even the belongings of the lucky Sims who will get to live there before she is due to return from her recovery.
