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.
I seem to be on a recoloring frenzy- like I needed another Sim hobby! This time I bring you Tarox's Living Room set in 2 recolors. The seating in this set are one of my favorites (probably b/c my own couch looks very similar- I have a set in white) and I've been wanting to recolor them even before I learned to recolor. Anyway, you probably don't want to hear me blab unnecessarily...so on to the set.

The set comes in Espresso and White. Each include:

-Sofa, armchair, side table, coffee table, desk, display case (meshes from http://www.tarox4sims2.de ARE included as specified on the Tarox site: "It is allowed to offer my mesh together with your recolors.")

-Rug (you need the mesh from Teko's Dining set on MTS2- if you downloaded my Teko Dining Room recolor set you won't need to redownload the mesh)

-Blind (mesh is from http://sims-2.gameslife.ru - sets, page 12- direct link below)

-Painting is a recolor of Maxis' "Anonymous Master" (you need Nightlife for the painting only)


I've included a screenshot of each room and also a screenshot of the swatch board for each room so you can really get a close look at the materials (the background is the ebony wood grain). Btw, the wallpaper color varies depending on the lighting but you probably already knew that.
