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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This set is by far, the most time consuming project I have done to date. it contains 90 some pieces. The marble counters were painted in my paint program from scratch. there is no seam between countertops. The wood textures are all new. I took extra pains with shadows and textures. Please click on the links listed below to get the original sets by these extremely talented people: phoenix_phaerie's Tuscan Kitchen set, luslipz73's kitchen clutter.rar, phervers' Snuggly kitchen containers, and Shannanisims' Lustroware. The rest is Maxis. Everything you see is included. the counters, appliances, curtains, clutter, walls etc. . (BTW, I made one collection file so everything is together since I used a mixture of creators and Maxis. Put it in your collections folder the rest goes in downloads. This took me several months to do, but in the end, I think it was worth it. I hope you do too

some of the cupboards are Maxis from Seasons. Some are custom and you must download the meshes from the links listed below. You must have Seasons and you must have the meshes.

this is awesome, thanks for sharing this with us all and taking the time to make them. Even with all the great items that are out there is still hard for me to get a full kitchen that looks right. Maybe I just need practice though lol.

Omg! I do believe your work gets better and better with every creation you release! Gorgeous! I've got the perfect house to put this in. Thank you!

OH! And where ever did you get those big windows by the dining table? I'd love to get those to complete the look.

Default windows
I believe they are part of phoenix_phaerie's window set here

Thanks everyone. I am so glad you like it. I have just finished making 4 more kitchen walls and will start doing the rest of the project. Hopefully I will have 4 more kitchens up within the next 2 months

Okay, now you have to get started on the rest of the house. LOL. My kitchen will look so utterly amazing that the rest of the house is going to be boring. You did too good of a job! It's simply stunning. Thank you very much for all the time you spent on this - it really shows. And thank you for sharing this with us!

BTW, what parts of the kitchen require Seasons and Pets? I was wondering if I could manage to filter those out so I can use the rest of your kitchen. I have all the other EPs, but not those two.

I can't get either green or the blue recolors to show up on the cabinets for some reason. They show up on everything else. Just two cream recolors show up on the cabinets in the game.

They're so pretty, I must have them!

Janet, they are all in there. I used the maxis cabinets from seasons for some cabinets and the Tuscan cabinets for others. check in both places and you will find them. Also, did you put the collection file in your collection folder? If you did that you will find everything in the mcalli kitchen folder. let me know if you have any more problems.

jcspencer, the blue and green cupboards require seasons i think and the tuscan is a mesh from phoenix_pharie. You must get her mesh for the other cupboard to show and I am not sure what EP they require. Seasons is a wonderful EP and you will be missing alot if you don't get it.

THANK YOU! I downloaded this yesterday and I LOVE it! My dream kitchen (real life) has always been white wood with wood counters, and I love the old fasioned, but very functional kitchens you create! You are my favorite designer, I think I have nearly all your stuff... or I will soon!
