This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I am so sorry, but I uploaded the double version of the drape by mistake It's the right one now.

This project was started after a question posted by daydream58 from Sim A Little, Dream A Lot , in the, "Where can I find", thread at N99, so all thanks go to Deedee for sparking the idea.

I separated the drape from the original Maxis Medieval Bed and cloned each part as a separate objects, the bed can be recolored and used now without having the drape. The Drapery is now a decorative object and takes it's texture from the bedding, both Maxis and all custom, so you can mix and match anyway you want.

This is the single bed version of that mesh, with the same options.
Double Bed version here

Poly/Vert counts --

Bed -- 1737P 2057V
Drape -- 2598P 2969V
The drapery is a little high for a 3 tile object, but decreasing the count starts to break down the draping on the mesh.

The drape will be found under Decorative - Misc in the catalog for 100§, the bed, under Seating - Beds, is 850§.

If you want the bedskirt/dust ruffle seen in the photos that also takes it texture from the bedding, you can find it in this post Maxis Match Dust Ruffle/Bed skirt

I've added 3 recolors of the bed in a single zip file as a separate download. You are welcome to create and post recolors of the bed anywhere you want, however the mesh MUST remain a free download. The mesh for the drape is different, the only way to recolor it is by recoloring the bedding.

My creations are File-Share-Friendly through email or IM and MUST remain that way.

Both are TS2 compatible, no expansions needed. If you have any problems please let me know.

Enjoy, Kat

Wow! I never thought of these single beds would look so good.

Update: July 2009-I am back now to make invisible and tranparent recolors again in sims 2. You can pm me if you want your objects to be invisible and transparent from now.

Yay, I love your stuff, especially the beds that have a high energy /comfort level. You wouldn't be thinking of doing any brass or iron victorian style beds would you? ;-D

Drapes Question
I loaded both your single and double beds and they look great. There was only one size for the drapes and that was double. Do you have another for the single?

These are fantastic, very greatly needed!!
But I noticed that the single version of the draperys overwrites the double and is the same double bed version.

Any chance of a single version of the drapes? Although I assume this was just a mistake in uploading the file. I'll keep checking back for updates.

#8 Old 16th Jun 2006 at 12:04 PM
gotta have these too
thank you

Please note - I'm not taking any requests at the moment.

You may include my items in your uploads but please credit with a link to either the object or my creator page please.

Yes, when I tried to download the single bed drapes, the file overwrote the double bed drapes. Other than that, these beds look great. I love all of these new bedding matching accessories like curtains and dustruffles!

Thank you so much for seperating the curtain from the bed, now I can delete all the recolors I've had just to make them match the bedding.
