This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

here's a small set of patterns that are all vaguely art deco or art nouveau.

The rar contains the following

* Three rose tiles
These are all four-toned and can be found in 'Tiled/Mosaic'
There's a plain tile pattern, one with roses on each tile, and one with sparse roses.

* Orange and Lime
Three toned and can be found in 'Abstract'
This is the same lovely fruity pattern, in two sizes.

*Deco Flower
A bold four-toned pattern with a single repeated flower.
Can be found in 'Themed'

*Deco Swirl
Another whooshy pattern, slightly floral and three-toned.
Can be found in 'Abstract'

Eastern inspired deco pattern.
Four-toned and found in 'Fabrics'

Installation instructions can be found here.
Have fun with them!

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. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. 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.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

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.

Gosh, I think I'm doing something wrong, I put these in Packages folder with all my other CC (that works) and they are not showing up in game!
It must be me, because no one else is having issues.
Are these supposed to show up as CC?

These won't show up in the normal catalog, but in the window where you change the colour and pattern of fabrics, walls and furniture, with the other patterns.

Yes, in Create-a-Style, these are not showing up...?
Ah well, I'll try reinstalling, I do have a Mac and I'm used to Windows so I may have done something wrong. Thank you for your help!

Thanks for these, I've included Orange and Lime in my uploaded lot "Writer's Block" for the Summer of Love neighborhood project on TS3.

I'm sad that you're mostly retired. You've always been one of my favorite mod authors. Good luck in your future endeavors!
