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.
Greetings, Simmers!!!

While searching for Arts and Crafts wall coverings for my current house building binge, I happened upon the most gorgeous fireplaces and surrounds I have ever seen. Well, needless to say, I simply had to have them for my game and decided that it was only fair for me to share them with you.

The fireplaces are all recolors of the Raynuss Column Fireplace found at "Imagine That!" : https://rdnussimaginethat.blogspot....-fireplace.html

The fireplace (with no chimney) is found under misc appliances for 499 simoleons
The fireplace surrounds in "Apple Tree", "Prairie" and "Poppy" are found under paneling for zero simoleons
The matching wallpapers are found under wallpaper for zero simoleons

I have included the .psp file of the actual fireplace surround so that you can make your own if you choose to do so

Enjoy!

Thank you to Raynuss, StephSims and Sophie-David for ongoing encouragement and inspiration

I love what you do with each object you recolor. This simply is another breath taking recolor that I simply must have. And what I really like about it, its not one of those objects that has to be used in a specific era, but can be used in several different themes! Thank you for the love and attention you gave this!
