Wizards School of Magic (Palace)
I have been decorating my massive fantasy palace and have a few things done I thought i would show you. First off theme I choose Magic school theme as it looked like Hogwarts to me or not sure if any one know Howl's moving castle? Both of these movies are my inspiration here. I see many other themes that can be made Camelot, fairy palace, Kingdoms,so much more.
This house has 3 hidden passages, 2 you go through walls and one teleporter, 10 rooms of different sizes, many passages aka halls and the grounds/outside are spectacular. Oh lets not forget the personal arena. You can have 250/250 items and 50/50 pets. I do wish there were a bit more items and pets but I am sure myself and you can make it very special. So anyway,I went with the Wizards School of Magic for my theme.
I have a few things done one of which any Harry Potter fan would know ;).That is right it is the whomping willow. :) I was trying so many different ways to get that flying car to look right and my mind went blank then a friend said wait have you tried the wind swept tree? Well and there we have it. To do this you must first fly the car then place the tree, in a earlier segment you can see how to float bigger objects.
I would look here though ;)
Lets head inside first area well everyone should recognize the common, you can also see parts of the professor hall of pictures ,oops how did that lynx picture get in there *blushes* hehe that spot is saved for Ambrose picture but I still need to craft it.The joke is my nickname is Cat ;) always need humor in houses. I am still working on the final touches of this room.
Now no school is a school without some sort of class rooms, I went with potions and charms classes. Potions class was a tricky one I had to try everything to get the beakers for potion making the right height on top of the student desks ended up being a simple wooden bench , set beaker in right place twist the bench and slide it away. Charms class was very simple still working on final details.
The grand hall Is not finished but Ill give a picture of it is starting to look. when I am done I hope to find someone who is good at making video's for me ;) hint hint anyone? It will be awhile before i am finished. I want to show you this one place outside I am building its kinda like Hagrid's and the Spider cave ,I wont go much into detail here as I am still really working on it but Ill show picture of a sneak peek as I am not happy with the way it looks at this time.
One thing for everyone to remember we are all decorators ,even you if just place items around your house you are a decorator. Believe me I have a house I call simply storage ;) but I still had to place those items even if it looks like a mess. All housing is awesome everyone has different views. So until next time, happy house decorating.
