This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
The Tuscan Kitchen by phoenix_phaerie is still one of my favourite kitchen sets to use in my game but i thought it could do with some new recolours. I made these recolours to match some of the maxis furniture.

Please Note: I left the stovehood splashback blank so that you can use wallpaper instead, this way you can mix and match with your favourite walls and floors.

You can find my other matching recoloured items here:

I don't know where to start...I just discovered this set and I feel overwhelmed with joy when I found your recolors! I will use your recolors in all of my homes. There is always ways to use one thing or another to customize a kitchen look for any style home and you have made a beautiful motherlode of visual delights that fit the bill. You have a great eye and an incredible talent! Thank you for all your hard work.

You did a very nice job. The set is very beautiful. However, these blue flashing lights keep appearing on the door handles of the cabinets. I tried turning off the shadows but it didn't do anything. Anyone know how I can make these go away?

Although dimsim hasn't been here forever, wanted to Kudo this recolor set. And to beg... can't you put all colors in one download in case we want them all and don't want to download, open, extract and install 14 different sets? My finger hurts, but thank you for the sets these are fab especially the green one.

Lesibeth, I find, with a download manager integrated into IE7 and an archive extracter integrated into Windows Explorer, that downloading, extracting, and installing a large number of archives is almost as easy as downloading, extracting, and installing a single archive.

dimsim, thank you for the recolors.

Thank you very much for these wonderful recolours. One thing I would like to suggest, and I realise that you created/uploaded these quite some time ago, is that you add a single file for those of us who want to download all the colours. That way we don't have to spend such a long time downloading them all individually.

This is a very nice recolor. When I tried to put it the game, I got an arrow message saying some of the files where to long, it seems to be the stove tops and granite counter tops. The green stove is ok but not the counter top. Thank you.
