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.
I recolored Chrissie's amazing Saratoga Living Room Set from www.pimpmysims.com in 4 color sets: Velvet Sage, Camel Suede, Wheat Linen and Canvas White. Each set includes the following:

Large Sofa, Apartment Sofa, Chair, Ottoman
-From Chrissie's Saratoga set- mesh is included in download as permitted by the pimpmysims website: "You may only offer the meshes in addition to your recolors, if they are marked with the symbol on the right." I added a link to the mesh below also but you don't need to download anything from there.

Coffee Table, Sofa Table, Bookcase, Side Table
-From Chrissie's Saratoga set- same as above. The colors are in a dark wood "coffee maple" tone.

Curtain
-Recolored from Simaddict99's Sophia Single Curtain mesh. The mesh is a pay item from www.thesimsresource.com which you need to download. I understand that not everyone has access to that so I included a different set by Pacin from MTS2 for people who want it (explained as 'extra' below).

Painting
-Recolored from Maxis Rolling Hills painting. The paintings are based on those at Crate & Barrel (one of my favorite stores, the Saratoga set is based on Crate & Barrel furniture too).

Wallpaper
-Made by me- has a linen texture.

Extra: Free Curtain Recolor Option
There is also an extra curtain set to download for those of you who don't have access to TSR. They are recolors of Pacin's Ring Drapes. I used the same fabrics as the Sophia curtains and changed the rod and rings to brushed silver. You need to download the mesh.

*Important! The seating legs and baskets in the bookcase did not show up as a recolor option when I created the recolor files so I extracted the TXMT, MMAT, and TXTR and recolored them to dark wood for the legs and a different texture for the baskets. I tried everything to make them show up only in my recolors but they unfortunately either overwrote the mesh colors or didn't work at all (i.e changing names, family, etc.). Frankly, I got sick of working on it for 4 full days so I set them up so that they will overwrite the default and don't want to mess with them anymore. I hope this isn't a big deal for most people. I love dark wood so prefer the legs to be dark wood standard. I included a picture for those of you who want to see the original versus my recolor. If this is a big deal for you, please do not download this set. Thanks!
