adele’s amelia living

I have no (supposedly) clever name for this one; we have entered the unbearably hot season and I have responded maladaptively, as always, by whining, sweating, and refusing to go outside without the promise of lots of presents. And, apparently, my brain turns off.

I love these sets of Adele’s, and although I think this one would look rather fabulous with a bit of wear and tear, I first wanted to have a few untattered sets with darker and more saturated colors than Adele’s original offerings. Unfortunately, there seems to be a small drawback to this (read on, read on). Nine fabrics, two woods, one recolor each for the painting and box. I left the lamps alone, as I felt they would serve my purposes as-is.

You may have noticed in the colorswatch image above that there is a very fine, white, translucent line running the width of the front edge of the seat of each upholstered piece. At first, I thought this might be a gap in my texture, but examination of Adele’s originals reveals that it is a minor problem with the mesh, which using lighter/less saturated colors successfully camouflages.

Since I can’t do anything about this, and because I really like having the darker colors, I am willing to live with the ghost line, and probably most potential downloaders will be able to do so, as well.

    These recolors are so beautiful. You have a great eye for color and detail. I really appreciate your generous sharing policy. I’m sure these will show up in one of my homes soon. (Just wish it would be so easy to make them show up in my real home.)

    Thank you.

    I wasn’t a big fan of this set’s original, washed out colors, but I adore your super-rich, saturated color choices. And while I’m a pretty picky downloader, I’d put up with a lot more than that little white ghost line to get those gorgeous specimens into my game. Thank you for creating and sharing.

    Oh, and I can’t wait to see your wear-and-tear versions of these!

    Your recolors are gorgeous, thank you! I love the lines of the original set, but the color just didn’t excite me.

    I probably would have just assumed it was part of the texture if not for your explanation, so it’s really no big deal.

    And I agree with the others – I love everything Adele has ever made, so this is no criticism of her, but somehow her objects don’t offer wind up in my houses unless I make a concentrated effort (“this is going to be an Adele House”). That’s because of the colors, of course. I am a fan of pretty shiny hues, and now I can have them. Thanks much.

    These are beatiful. They look like Velvet. Something I’ve been looking for for a long time. Thanks.
