Hamptons Hideaway - Living Room Set for TS4

With all the building I have been doing in Windenburg, it has shown me just how much I needed to create some more classic-contemporary furniture that could be used in these coastal homes. I love Hamptons design, so I went about creating my own set of furniture and decor inspired by this style. The last classic/contemporary set I made was my Shaker kitchen which this is designed to be used with, along with my Bayside Bedroom. I do plan to make more furniture with less of a modernist feel, and this is the latest set with that goal in mind. I hope you all enjoy it as much as me.

Due to the length of these posts and for ease of updating, you can find the download and info under the cut.

Lennox Kitchen And Dining Set

As a celebration of my birthday, which I wanted to actually enjoy it this year, I decided to make something specifically to mark the occasion. I also decided to keep it a secret since I couldn't enjoy the surprise myself, others could in my place. So what ended up being an idea morphed into another kitchen, but I wanted something clean and simple, and this is the result. Some may call it dull, or boring, but I am not a flashy person and I find clean lines very appealing.

Shaker Kitchen

Well, I think I out-did myself this time. I seem to be taking on ever-increasingly complex sets that get bigger as I get more experience. As you can see, a kitchen is probably one of the most complex sets you can make for The Sims 4. Totalling just over 51 unique meshes in 38 package files, this by far outstrips Atwood Living for my biggest set to date. I will probably hold that title for some time to come. I has been a labour of love, and I hope that dedication shows in the final product. I am usually at a point when i finish these projects that I never want to see my content again. However, that is not the case with this kitchen. I still love using it, despite the amount of agony it has caused me. So I hope you all enjoy it at least as much as me (which is a lot).

Mid Century Eclectic Object Set

This set is a bit different from my previous ones. It was designed to take a bit of the tedium out of creating "object sets" with multiple matching items and designed to go together. This set is something that can be mixed and matched with other sets, hence the name "eclectic". The randomness of the items, but how they all come together is what I aimed for, and I think I succeeded. It is also a smaller size (both file and item count) which was nice after completing Atwood living. That set was HUGE! I have also included some retro inspired wallpapers to accompany this set. We really do need more wallpapers, so go fourth and decorate with these new pretties.

Atwood Living Redux

Atwood was my first large, complete set I have made for TS4. It was also made with an early version of TSRW and because if that it too has been remade. I am happy I did it though, because there are some key improvements that I am really happy i got around to doing. I love this set and still use it, but even moreso now I made the adjustments i did. I bet you all will enjoy it as much now as well.

Nox Dining Set Redux

Nox is probably my favourite dining set with its angular looks mixed with bright colours. It however was made with an early version of TSRW and needed to be remade to make it easier to update in the future. It gave me the opportunity to redo the textures and optimised some of the meshes as well. I removed some redundant styles and added some too. All-in-all I am very happy with this remake and will get more years of use out of it.

Bayside Bedroom Set Redux

On top of redoing Grove Furniture Collection, I also remade Bayside Bedroom Set. Every time I looked at the original items, a lot of the items made me cringe. This is more then a remake because the process was much more then just re-importing meshes. I was not happy with a lot of the designs as I rarely used a lot of the objects these days (apart from the plants and bedframe/bedding) so I went about bringing them up-to-date into something I would use once again. I am really happy with how it turned out and suits the coastal theme much more then the original. I also love the mustard yellow so much.
