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.

Alright, this is something requested by ghsus a while ago. Apologies for the maassive delay as I was occupied by new work and a couple of other things. I think this might be my last upload for a while since I'll be kept busy with my real life.

These are new object meshes and recolours that are from the television series (which I have never watched :P) the OC, from the poolhouse.
There are 8 new meshes, and 1 wallpaint.

Comes in several recolours for some of the objects:

Overall, I'm pretty happy with how it came out, but flaws that are worthwhile to mention are: the dresser's drawer does not exactly correspond to the sims pulling out animation, unsatisfactory textures of the recliner and endtable, oversized shadow of the table lamp. I tried to improve on those, but in the end I was too busy to do them.

The blind fits the frame of Maxis' The "Function of Plate Glass" Window.

That's it, I've tested the objects thoroughly, hopefully there wouldn't be too many problems. Thanks testers.

Polygon Counts:
> Blind: Faces = 362, Vertices = 296
> Vase: Faces = 702, Vertices = 696
> Low Path Lights: Faces = 114, Vertices = 104
> Endtable: Faces = 458, Vertices = 444
> Dresser: Faces = 2980, Vertices = 2334 High Poly
> Couch/recliner: Faces = 1994, Vertices = 1790
> Floor Lamp: Faces = 496, Vertices = 363
> Double Door: Faces = 1692, Vertices = 1152

Ive decided to still upload the bedding, which is in the zip "Blake'sPoolhouseBednBedding", however, containing in the zip is also the bed recolour to murano's bed at TSR. So you should be aware that you should have the bed mesh if you'd like the recolour to function

I'm planning on releasing the plants and pots in the future after I can reduce their poly counts. Just not sure when though..

Lovely work, but it looks as though the mesh has been moved to the sims resource /cry
You may want to note this in your post.

I really like this set...unfortunately I can't get the bed as I'm a TSR member but I don't donate. So that spoiled it a little, but not enough to keep me from loving this set! Thanks so much for taking the time to put it together. I actually do not like the OC, but the furniture's great anyway! Keep up the good work. I can't wait to see what else you put together! Keep up the great work
