A while back, I created a French Country house to offer to the creator working on the Paris world and for Foundation 1 from the MTS Foundation Challenge. Unfortunately, I did not get it finished in time for the Foundation Challenge. See the fantastic houses submitted here:!

Built on a 30x30 lot, this two-storey house has two bedrooms, three bathrooms - one with laundry - a library/den with chess set and a lovely backyard with a large garden, orchard, and vineyard. The house comes equipped with toddler necessities and one bedroom upstairs has a crib. Outdoors features a BBQ, seating area, fountain, and play area. A separate building houses a nectary so that sims can improve their nectar making skills. Nectar racks are stocked with a variety of nectars.

No CC. 30x30 lot. Furnished: §106,367; unfurnished §60,702.

The following Store items were used -
Not A Street Floor Lamp (Free):
Paris Wall Clock (Free):
Ivy Tower (Part of the free Prius Content packs):
Generation Clock (Free):
JML Technologic 4:3 TV (100 Sim points):
Victorian Kerosene Wall Lamp (25 Sim points):

World Adventures and Ambitions required. My Sims 3 game is patched to the latest version -; Ambitions

When you think of Provence and the French countryside, you're sure to see lavender fields and bright sunshine. While there are many elements that contribute to the French Country style of decorating, the resulting look is always rustic, old-world, and welcoming. Colors used to decorate in the French Country style come from the full spectrum of the color wheel. Sunny yellow and soft gold, firey red and burnt rust, bright grass green and dark hunter green, cobalt blue and soft ocean tones. Bright black and dull grays punctuate the bright colors and define accessory pieces. Rusted metal furniture, lighting fixtures, and furniture give warm color and wonderful lines.

An important element in pieces used in French Country style decorating is the use of natural materials. Rough stained or painted plaster walls, hefty beamed ceilings and walls, delicate carved wood details, and chair seats woven of rush give texture and simplicity to the look.
