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 just got around to taking a look at this lot in-game, and the pictures don't do it justice. That's not to say the pictures are poorly done, only that the lot really is that good. I'm very impressed at how well you managed to make it look beautiful without detracting from the feeling that it could really be lived in. Everything looks very realistic and put together, and I'm kind of blown away that it's all EA content. I'm seriously fangirling over here.

I usually prefer to build than download houses but I really love this and your decor is lovely I don't own every store item you listed but I'll take my chances! Though you made those roman shades look so good I had to go get them
