Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I wanted to try and traditional house (with a modern spin, of course), in black and white, and this is what I ended up with! It feels elegant but funky and the contrast is awesome. It has 3 fully furnished bedrooms, and 3 baths. There's a huge bonus 3rd floor that can be filled with whatever else you may need!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
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.

I was having issues attaching garages in the sims 3 until KryptiK2 nicely linked me this video. Very helpful if you're having an issue with the walls overlapping the garage doors!

very nice house! i'd love to see what you can do with a starter house done like this, or similar.



but shouldn't it be "kuroshiroi" as if it were an adjective or a name?

Haha, I have no idea! I'm sure you're right, but it was taking me forever to come up with a name for the house, and I just happened to come across that (was some sort of comic), and it sounded pretty! :P

I'm attempting a starter.. Never realized it would be so much harder than building a mansion.

you know, i don't think this house is big enough. :P

nice job, i love your use of black through out the house. it's a hard color to use without making everything feel heavy, and you made it look modern yet traditional without feeling old and dated.

great job

Fabulous house! I'd say it's a great success.

For those wondering: くろい (kuroi) = Black, しろい (shiroi) = White. I'm not sure why the "i"s were dropped, but I saw it and my Japanese classes payed off XD

Awesome house and very inspiring!

The great thing about monochrome is that if you put just one or two colored objects in those rooms, they'd really pop. I can picture a single red rose on one of the tables or something like that. Gorgeous.
