Information (Click for more details):
This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Ok, I'm going a little pattern crazy. Here's a set of 5 floral or floral-ish patterns for you alls. This set is inspired by all the horrible, dated wallpaper I stared at all day in my youth.
All of the wallpapers have light "dirt" included somewhere, and its color can be adjusted to give either a dirty, faded, or burned look to the wallpapers. Unfortunately, the dirt layer on most of these is not it's own separate layer, so it changes with the color of design. I tried to stick the dirt on the layer that made the most sense for the most common color choices, so most of the dirt layers are on the "leaves" layers. I thought about making clean versions of these due to that limitation, but the dirty ones look so rad that I thought "why bother?"
All patterns have 4 colors and are located under "Fabrics." You can pick and choose which to download or just grab them all.
rug - Baroqueish
armchair - Granny's Kitchen
wallpaper - Total Modness
bed - Seventies Monster
loveseat - Stock Flowers
Check out the recolors for more variations on what the dirt looks like.
Thanks to Delphy & Hysterical Paroxysm for the nifty program and tutorial.

Expansion / Stuff Packs Required
You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed above installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.
You need to be a Registered Member to be able to download from MTS. Registration allows you to thank and leave comments for the creators, see your download history, participate in the discussions and much more!
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.
