Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I wasn't able to play sims for a long time, but finally I can show you another house - a villa inspired by french countryside style.
Lavender is a medium house for a family with two children (but there is still place to put another playpen). My goal was to create very peacefull house - the place where you can feel family warmth. So the interior is full of browns and beiges with some delicate colour tones - the house is called Lavender, becouse of that all violets inside (and of course, I don't find better name ).
It is completely furnished, landscaped and ready to play.
Hope you will like it

2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
