This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.

Hello! Thanks to everyone who downloaded my Tuscan Kitchen. I wish I could say that uploading the set went off without a hitch, but unfortunately I can't. Thanks for your patience while I got the issue with the stove sorted out.

If you downloaded the original set before it was updated, please visit the original thread to download the fixed stove and potrack.

If when you downloaded the set, there was only an extra download for the stove and NOT the potrack, then you probably need to go back and download the potrack as well. If you don't download the potrack fix, you will be unable to select the recolor options for the potrack.

This recolor is for those of you who don't want the dark tones of the mahogany and original maple versions of this set.

The wood has been lightened to a clean and bright color I call Antique White, and the coutertops and pulls are now Vintage Gold.

I have also included a recolor of the tile backsplash on the stove hood, so now, you can have more design options for the backsplash.

The chandelier has been recolored to burnished brass. Please let me know what you think of this recolor.

For those lazy readers, I'm going to repeat what I wrote above about the updates:

If you downloaded the original set before it was updated, please visit the original thread to download the fixed stove and potrack.

If when you downloaded the set, there was only an extra download for the stove and NOT the potrack, then you probably need to go back and download the potrack as well. If you don't download the potrack fix, you will be unable to select the recolor options for the potrack.

Good Luck everyone! And happy simming

I definitely like the burnished brass chandelier! I like the warmer colors for metals with lights. Copper would be nice, too and even the tarnished-er, duh, what do they call that, yeah, tarnished brass or something, that would be pretty. The recolors turned out very nice.

I am new to getting downloads. And I was thinking about getting this one and the one in dark wood. Can I have them both or do I have to chose one or the other?

#24 Old 24th Jan 2010 at 7:02 PM
You can have both in game, and all the other colors two, if you thought you needed that many, AreilDelphinus.

phoenix phaerie, this chandelier is gorgeous! I am trying to redecorate my real house in steampunk, and this color is beautiful! I have a copy of my house in-game. This is going over my dining table!

I had downloaded this set before, then somehow missed all the great recolors. Thank you.
