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.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This is a bedroom set created for your teenage female sims.

For some reason, my small mind thought that "Chez Moi" (my house/home) would be a really cute and original name for this set. Unfortunately, my small mind forgot that there is a kitchen counter ALSO named "Chez Moi".
By the time I realized it, I'd already made several objects and their names/file names using "Chez Moi".

So this particular set has nothing to do with the Chez Moi counter. It's named for the territorial nature of teenage girls and the French country-like styling of this set.

It features 3 wood color choices: mahogany (I love mahogany), rustic white and sleek black.
There are also 3 main color themes: lavender blossom, pink and green argyle, and blue stripes.
All color choices come built into each object (sorry--but it's only three). You can mix and match the wood and fabric options. Some choices go better with others of course.

The set also features lovely crystallized pulls on the furniture. I created the effect by flipping the normals for the knobs to get a more realistic result. So if they ever appear slightly "inside-out" at certain angles, that's why.


As usual, no new upload would be complete without my disclaimer:
Due to the ornate nature of this set, there are very high poly counts! Know your computer's limitations before downloading.

Items: (Poly count in parenthesis)
  • double daybed (5448)
  • single daybed (4504)
  • 3 bedding recolors
  • bookcase (1582)
  • 3 curtain recolors
  • dresser (2703)
  • desk (1918)
  • desk chair (992)
  • endtable (1316)
  • mirror (1046)
  • rug (8)
  • table lamp (746)
  • corkboard (162)
  • window seat (1190)

Object Notes:

-ChezMoiBedroom.rar contains all the meshes, while ChezMoiBedding contains the bedding. If you want the matching bedding you MUST download the bedding file.

-The curtains are a recolor of the 'Ultra Funky Clothes Curtains' and also affects the 'Loft Curtains'.

-Mirror requires Nightlife. All other objects are base-game compatible.

-The mirror is placed high up as it is meant to go above the dresser. Your sim can still practice speach/romance with the mirror, but they will lean through the dresser to do it, and it looks odd. Mainly I just made this mirror for show and not utility.

-There are both a single and double bed available for this set. They are DAYBEDS and are designed to be entered from one side. Place them against a wall will keep your sims from entering from the wrong side.
It's also best to place them against a blank wall because the back is thin and curtains, low pictures, etc. will bleed through.

The double day bed is meant for one person design-wise. Two sims can sleep in it, but it will look a bit funny when the other enters.
Because all single beds take up the entire tile width, it was hard to get the backboard to not bleed through the wall. As a result, the back of the single bed is a little wonky, but it's purely cosmetic and won't cause any problems to your game

Jeezum Crow. I don't know how many people are going to correct me on the title of this set. I really didn't want to write this into the download post itself, but I think it needs to be said.

I took French for 5 years. One of those years was at college level. I think I know what "Chez Moi" means!

WMStang -Chez Moi can mean "my place", but that is not it's exclusive meaning. "My house" is the most accepted meaning of "chez moi". This is something most people learn in beginning French!

DAinfinity -using the possessive "ma" or "mon" with the preposition "chez" is NOT grammatically correct in any way shape or form--unless you are talking about the house of someone else (i.e. chez ma cousine--"at the house of my cousin")

kanga2-you are mistaken. The French word for kitchen is actually cuisine. Chez can mean office or store as well, but NOT kitchen.

This set is properly named, and I really don't want to hear anything else about it

I love this set! I also feel the need to extend my apologies for having to put up with silly people who don't know French; I've taken less than a year of French and I've been taught well that "chez moi" is the perfectly proper way to say "at my house". Le sigh. Anyway, thanks so much for the gorgeous set, my teens (and adults!) will love it!

I adore this set, I probably abuse it! But--I'm having a big issue with the desk. I've tried redownloading just the desk several times, and it does nothing. The desk appears in the buymode catalog, but when I go to place it, I come away with nothing, no placeable object at all. This isn't the first time I've had issues with custom desks, but I know it's not that my (base) game has a problem with custom desks, because I have a couple of setless custom desks kicking around my game. Any ideas?

(Copypasta, sorry.)

This is an absolutely beautiful set, thank-you so much for making it with such attention to detail! It is truly elegant!

By the way, does anyone know of any re-colours of this fabulous mesh, especially with regards to the fabric options?

Once again, beautiful design!

This is lovely!

For those of you that have no understanding of differnet lanuages, just because the words are set up in the order Chez Moi doesnt mean they are read that why, that is common knowledge i think for anybody, let alone people who have studied it for 5 years! Why on earth make such stupid comments about such a wonderful piece of work? So stupid! But every fourm has those random people I guess.

Life is a curious game..

I'm impressed by all of your work, and I've got a modern version of the art deco period ready for some of these that you may also like to try some of your stuff in, like the new bathroom and the subway tiles. It looks excellent.

J'adore cette chambre ! Je me permets d'écrire ce commentaire en français puisque tu as l'air de bien parler cette langue. Ce set est vraiment magnifique, félicitations !

Par contre... "Chez can mean office or store as well, but NOT kitchen." Je ne suis pas d'accord avec toi, ou alors tu parles d'une autre langue que le français.

Anyway... Congrats, this is an awesome bedroom set !

The set is absolutely gorgeus, but I have a problem with desk. I tried re-downloading it, didn't help. It shows in catalogue to be picked, but when I pick it it doesn't show to be placed, also recolors are not shown.

I have only base game, so I deleted the mirror from Downloads folder - didn't help.

Do you have any idea why it is like this? Thanks in advance for help.

Love it! And it's good to see someone knows French! Not many people do... but I've taken a good deal of French, and just so you know (for corroboration) you're right. Sorry about the trouble you had.

I really love this; it's very personal and feminine (but not over the top). Thank you for sharing this awesome set!

ALSO: It's irritating when you come across of smart-alecs, amirite? There are people who always think that they know a French-speaker (French and English are my native languages), I can't help but laugh my ass off at their mistakes, it's hilarious.
