Wow, glad to see my research was expanded!  You folks got some serious testing accomplished.  I was just trying to figure out the most cost-effective way to decorate homes :D

Recommendation: To get the "Decorated" moodlet, one of the following combinations minimum must be placed in a room:

  • a 5
  • two 4's and a 1
  • three 3's
  • a 4 and three 2's
  • two 3's and two 2's
  • a 3 and four 2's
  • a 3, three 2's and three 1's
  • seven 2's
  • a 2 and fifteen 1's
This looks like:
  • One object must sum up to 5
  • Three objects must sum up to 9
  • Four objects must sum up to 10
  • Five objects must sum up to 11
But for seven and 16 objects, I do not know.

Threads like these are like little "Easter Eggs" to me!  I love it!  Great information!  I'm going to write this down in my "Sims Notebook" for future reference!   ;D

Based off of the data that drift9999 extracted, if you get the moodlet in a 15x15 room, you will always get that moodlet in any room of larger size.
So I tested a 5x5 room and a 15x15 room to see what the cheapest I can go on decorations is.

Conclusion:
The cheapest way to get Decorated, Nicely Decorated, and Beautifully Decorated is obviously using The Dragon's Vase.

The Dragon's Vase (Environment: 5 [After testing, I no longer believe this value to be an accurate depiction of the bonus conferred], Cost: $1):

Each room size was tested with an array of 8 rooms of that size with 1-8 Dragon's Vases in each.
Each room had a Tomb Passage Door, a UV by Uwe chair, free wood flooring and free wall covering.
5x5 rooms had 2x Disciplinary Lamps
15x15 rooms had 15x Disciplinary Lamps

Results:
5x5 room: 1 ND, 2 BD
15x15 room: 1 D, 2 ND, 3 BD

Any room can have BD for $3, no matter how large.

Welcome to the forum, Ronin316.   :)

Yes, those little Dragon's Vases are certainly a gift to people wanting the Beautifully Decorated moodlet.  I use them a lot.

Thanks for the welcome, Schipperke.
Yes, the Dragon Vases are awesome. I just didn't expect them to be that much more awesome than their "Environment: 5" stat would suggest. Based on the numbers listed earlier in this thread, they appear to be better than several of the "Environment: 10" items.
