I love a lot of detail around my condo, the only thing I’m gonna steal are the neon stairs

Those Neon light stairs are awesome! And thanks for the tip about placing things sideways, I need it for. Reasons. :new_moon_with_face:

Hope you don’t mind stealing the rainbow stairs :sunglasses:

Nice idea with the neon light stairs. I might as well show what my pool looks like, also used some rainbow colors.

Getting the placement right is pretty difficult, but it’s manageable.

These are some things from my GMT suite,


Its a bed with a canopy, sadly we don’t have blocks or curtains (yet)

I can’t wait for building blocks ouo<img

You can neatly stack plates and dishes! Good for people who are gonna have more elegant kitchens.

Can’t wait till we get bar tables n stuff. This will make perfect for a night club. :heart_eyes:

Putting it on the ceiling looks better than on the staircase in my opinion.

Nice idea. The ones on the stairs will stay tough.:stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Oddly enough, I’m getting a set of chairs exactly like this IRL soon. Blue LEDs though.
