Bon Jour, Simmers!

There are traces of Spring in the air... and thoughts drift to ..Paris.... In keeping with my current theme of late 19th and early 20th century, this lot demanded that I build it.... Without further ado, I give you Paris Nouveau....

The particulars of this lot......

The house is built on a 3x4 and costs 187,678 simoleons, fully furnished. Just hang your favorite draperies and move in!

~~~~~~~~ For those who would rather do it themselves, a second file of just the walls and floors is available~~~~~~~~~~~

Many thanks to the talented creators who made the look possible!!!!

CC NOT included:

reica15 created the hydrangea bushes that I've used for years.... Thank You, reica15!

4ever Sim Fantasy created the "egg shaped" shrubs. Their site is no more, but the files are still available here:

CC that IS included:

Doors and windows from Raynuss' panel door set. Get the entire set here:

Lithium's Gothic Dresser... SimsDesignAvenue.... site is gone

I have often thought that this dresser would be perfect as a sideboard... unfortunately, it was created with NO slots!
Rebecah at Affinity added 8 slots for me!!! With a price tag of only 150 simoleons, use it everywhere!

The kitchen has been newly updated with my retro set avocado appliances and maxis match add-ons

Yes, I built the walls.... However, sources found on the internet deserve all the credit and thanks! (Items are pictured with the screen shots)
