Hello sim friends! I'm working on something besides my usual wallpaper / bedding / shower curtains / paintings / nursery recolors old dog no new tricks for the monthly theme at GoS. But what a surprise, more walls today (can you believe it), fifteen §6 wallpapers with that not-tired-of-it-yet moulding :)


And I would love some feedback on the texture I'm working on for a wood version of the moulding please? So next version (3.3a ha ha) should be lighter... but then I don't know, maybe less red? And that might mean desaturating it a little or it might mean adjusting the hue over a few clicks towards yellow. If anyone has any thoughts/suggestions/hate-it/love-it I'm all ears :D

I actually like the way it looks now, a nice dark stained wood.I'm sure it'll match well with some of the Maxis dark wood floors. Are you planning on doing a light wood too? An oakish looking colour would look great.

Also I love the wallpapers, Everbloom in the green is my favourite.

Thank you very much (I like the green everbloom too)!

I was going to try to do just one wood but you're right, an oak/light wood is a good idea. And I like fiddling with stuff like this, so fun :D

Nichelle, thank you! I love the AL wood colors too, why did EA need 8 eps before they got it right? ha ha! I'll play around with getting it closer to the dark wood :)

I like the new moulding colour for darker wallpapers, but perhaps a lighter wood might work better with some lighter patterns?

Ooh, and I forgot to say, these new wallpaper patterns are truly scrumptious!

Oof!! I thought one wood only would be nice for download folders, so just white and then this imaginary super versatile catch-all wood color! But you're right (and sophie10 mentioned it too) I agree a lighter wood would be nice :)
Let me get my platinum aspiration on so I can wear my thinking cap and fiddle with these ha ha!
And thank you, I'm glad you like them *hug*

I agree that the wood is a little too red. Definitely try desaturation first (the more neutral the color, the more wall colors it will look nice with!) if the desaturation makes it look too gray, then try adding some orange.

The walls look awesome, you find the best patterns!

And thank you!

mara oh I'm so happy to see you here with your bigfoot icon :D
My pirate neighborhood does like the darker woods, and me, in real life, I like them too. I'm looking forward to trying out some new variations, thanks very much for the feedback!

Ha ha, the pictures are a bit dark, eh? No fear, I'm getting impatient too! I want them to leave log cabins behind so I can build modern-er houses with pretty wallpaper like this. :) (See, I can bring it back on topic. :P)

Unfortunately, not on the Starship Enterprise...sharing a room with either Jean-Luc Picard, or Spock.

Sadly, Patrick Stewart and Leonard Nimoy are both old enough to be my parents...er...actually, grandparent (Nimoy). Hmm...starting to see why my husband worries about my um...older gentlemen fixation. :)

*sends virtual hug to Shasta*

ha ha ha ha! I didn't know you were a Trek fan! Or maybe you're just a Trek Older Gentlemen fan :D

Yes, I am a total Trekkie (for a long...long time now). I'm more loyal to the original series and movies (all about Spock to be precise), as well as the Generations series (hence the infatuation with Jean Luc). Though I totally love what JJ Abrams did with the franchise as well.

By the way, the walls look gorgeous in game (love the darker wood). Can't wait to see what wood molding you come up with next. :)

*barges in late as usual

I love those arbor walk wallpapers, they're beyond perfect for a house I got in mind. <3

I would certainly download the heck out of any wallpaper with wood trim you come up with, so good luck! I hope you'll find that perfect shade :D

And now I shall bounce around the room excitedly over my freezerbunny bathrobe in your preview pictures XD *bounces away*

I'm very happy you saw my sim in her fb robe! She takes all the showers when I need to preview a shower curtain so it's only fair that she gets to hang out in your adorable robes :D
And I'm very happy you like the wallpapers too, thank you!
