I guess the living room, kids (any age) rooms and hobby rooms.  

I am player first so the challenge is to make things functional without route failures and such. 

I also like incorporating hobby items (sewing machine, etc), OFB items (the crafting stations), Aspiration and Career rewards into my houses.  Anyone can make a basement and stick all the stuff down in there, but it's a bigger challenge to make it part of the story and working it into the house itself.  I have a lot of additional functional items that I use as well, like the pottery wheel for kids and stuff.  I like building secret rooms and stuff as well. 

Sometimes I use the hobby selector and give the sims a hobby/interest based on story. Then I decorate their bedroom or a room in the house - a sewing room, a library, or an art studio.  I had one teenager who had a band so I decorated the garage with a bunch of instruments.

I play with longer seasons (30 sims days for each season) and my sims have longer life spans, so I play through holidays.  Spring - I do a Valentine's day and I have the Easter Mod which lets the Easter Bunny visit.  Summer - I do a 4th of July/Founder's Day type celebration with cookouts, Fall - I do a Halloween holiday - I have a party and everyone dressed up.  There is a costume contest (I roll the dice) and I give out a prize to an adult and a kid.  All the kids get a toy.  I have the pumpkin carving station.  Basically, they just run around and have fun.  I do a Thanksgiving/Harvest Holiday.  Winter- I do a Christmas type holiday with Santa.  I decorate for every holiday (being a slow simmer and having extended years makes it work).  I just keep the stuff in one of the adult's inventory, when they become an elder, they "hand down" the deco, passing on the traditions.  I play with generational households, so one "heir" always stays in the house.

The things I really need to work on are non-holiday clutter and breaking out of my color palettes. I've gotten to where I roll to figure out a sim's favorite color and use a color wheel to decorate the room using complimentary or other combo.  It's soooo hard because I'm having to learn to make colors I don't personally care about look nice.

I have a few personal challenges I'm going to work on - The Addams Family House and the Clue Mansion.

I'm an old school table-top gamer - both as a player and a dungeon master - so I have what are called "dragon dice" set.  Dragon or Dungeon Dice for those that don't know come in a standard 6 dice set. Each die as a different number of sides - 4, 6, 8, 10, 12 and 20. I make my own little charts for all sorts of things and roll.  As I have many sets of dice (I have an old school pencil box full of dice) so I can use 2 ten sided dice to make percentile rolls.

I just like the feel of the dice in my hands and the sound they make when they roll across my desk.

You ladies will get a kick out of this:  I have actually laid out rooms completely furnished, then built the rooms around them and added my (LIMITED) clutter!  I hate it when I have a house but this room is too small to hold the bed I want to use, etc.  My favorites are bedrooms and living or great rooms.  I struggle with kitchen designing, and I am at a loss with bathrooms and landscaping.  The design in my mind never really matches what I can accomplish in the game!  And I hate clutter!  I'm OCD to a fault in my own life - a place for everything and everything in its place.  So my games tend to follow that rule too.  and for some reason, my families never seem to have children either.  Guess they followed my lead with wanting to send my own kids to boarding school when they were little!  If I could have afforded that.......

May - I wondered if you had those dice at your beck and call - my youngest son played Dungeons & Dragons - Ben still has all 3 of his sets (sparkly pink, red, and sky blue) :D That is so cool!

Joan - I've done that! :D

...although, if you look through my portfolio, you'll see that I love clutter! LOL <3

Szanne - I have looked through all the portfolio and the things I see there are absolutely stunning. I admire the talent everyone has. I just wish all of it was available as downloads.

I love clutter!
And I especially enjoy decorating the kitchen and the beauty room/walk in closet.
