The Sims 4: Let’s Build a Bedroom Fit for a Tiger King!

I am never going to artistically recover from this…

I’m sure most of us have seen the docuseries that gripped the world at the start of the pandemic lockdowns; Tiger King. For those unfamiliar with it, it’s a documentary that centres around an eccentric zoo owner by the name of Joe Exotic and his long-running feud with animal activist, Carole Baskin. It’s actually much crazier than that but… well, just go check it out if you haven’t already. You have to see it to believe it.

When we got our first glimpse into the new Décor to the Max kit, my eyes immediately locked onto all the tiger and animal print absolutely everywhere. Being a little… obsessed with the whole Joe Exotic saga (I’ve seen far more documentaries and have read a lot more books on the subject than I care to admit), I knew immediately what I’d be doing with the kit as soon as I got it. A tiger king needs a tiger palace and a palace for a tiger king needs the gaudiest royal bedchamber that too much money can buy!

Behold! The royal bedchamber of the (in)famous Tiger King! Or at least how I imagine Joe would design his palace if he had one.


What’s more over-the-top than black and gold everything, right? So that’s the colour scheme of this very busy bedroom. Peacock statues guard the platform steps leading up to the tiger king’s bed with tiger stripe bedding and matching nightstand lamps. Behind the bed is an elaborate curtain with tiger print wallpaper and some of the new modular wainscoting.


A seating area sits next to a fireplace with an infinity mirror above it and grand windows bring in natural light. Tassel lamps in the corner add a delightfully tasteless touch to the room and the busy patterned flooring is broken up with a rug that by all means shouldn’t belong in the space but somehow, it does.

The clash of so many colours and patterns all fighting to be noticed first is the most perfect example of trying so hard to look expensive that it ends up looking cheap which, I think, would be Joe’s style. It seems to fit the rest of his whole persona. In an alternate universe where Joe Exotic was as wealthy as he was famous and living like the king he believes he is, I could see him taking off his cape and crown at the end of a long day and turning in for the night in this room, dreaming of riding tigers into battles… or whatever a tiger king dreams about, I guess. Perhaps locking Carole Baskin in the dungeon or something.


If, for some inconceivable reason, you absolutely have to have this room in your game, it is in the Gallery. Yes, you too can be the Tiger King!
