Cozy Stuff Pack Suggestion

CandacisCandacis Posts: 173 Member
So, Arts&Craft and Knitting had my vote and I'm really curious what Build/Buy and CAS style we can vote on next.
I support the idea of an elder-centric stuff pack, but I get that it is not everyone's favorite. Still, I think, stuff packs are best for small themes that might not get attention elsewhere. Thus I would prefer an art-style that would suit elders but isn't exclusiv senior stuff. On the other hand I don't want knitting punk, goth or anything that is overly young/adult. We had enough of that and I'm sure there will be more for that demographic in the future.
Now we have the chance to get something else. This is just my opinion and my taste and what I want for my Sims. You might have different ideas and that is totally fine.

There are a few interior styles that I think would go well together with Arts&Crafts. Like bohemian or shabby chic, but we already had some of both in other packs, so I would propose a Cozy Stuff Pack.
I want comfortable furnitures, that transports this cozy feeling. Lots of fabric, tables with table cloths, little bit of country, rustic and classics style, small knick knacks, candles, warm colours. A familiar feel, privacy, a peaceful retreat from rough weather and a hectic lifestyle. A quiet, snugly place to cuddle up. And I guess a place to knit.

I want a new kitchen set. We have so few of them. I think, something mit fabric behind the doors could be new and fitting. I think, we have less classic/countrystyle kitchens than we have modern ones.

Or some counters with curtains. Just as a variation maybe.
I also would love to see more tables with tablecloth on them.

I know this looks more industrial, but I wouldn't say no to a more rustic looking kitchen. I think, it is very needed (also for every cabin, survival or medieval playstyle).

Decoration ideas: Hanging or folded dish cloths, ovenmitts, herb plants in pots, rolling pin

Living room

More sofas with pillows, more throw blankets over said sofas. Great would be pieces that you could combine to make a corner couch.

I think, a new fireplace would be nice and maybe a one that we could better integrate into any wall.

I would also love to see more carpets, preverable older ones or more plush looking ones. I always use the same ones for more conservative houses.

More lighting options. Especially candles and light strings.

Bath room

I think, this wouldn't necessarily be a stuff pack with lots of objects for the bath room.

Still, I would love to see decorations like this basket with rolled towels.

Bed room

I would like to see a faux-fur carpet, more throw pillows on the bed and an end piece for the bed to put down books, blankets etc.

Crafts room

It is not unheard off to have a special room for arts&crafts and I think a pack focusing on that should have objects for it. I don't know, if we will get much more than knitting in terms of gameplay (I hope so!), but still, even decorative non-gameplay objects for that theme would be nice.

Again, something more industrial, but I think, you could mix both styles and they would go well together.

Happy to hear your feedback!

    Personally, I really like the themes/aesthetic of Seasons and Laundry Day because of their 'coziness' factor. More cozy stuff is always welcome to me!

    I love all of it. I really hope the Gurus look here to see all of these great ideas.

    Hmm I was thinking maybe corner fireplace? I keep wanting to put fireplaces in corners but at least in packs i have there is only ones that snap on straight walls : ( no angles : (
    though honestly i'd prefer they update existing ones for that too

    also L shape sofas and corner sofas need so bad

    and pillows and throws on sofas! preferably as separate decorative item that snaps on sofa or at least can be at right height for it

    How about a wood burning stove? that would work well in a corner position as well as flat walls, but would also work really well with a cosy asthetic. Nothing nicer than sitting around a wood burning stove on a cold day.

    I know I commented about it on another thread (sorry for a little repeat), but I really do think the photos you shared and your descriptions sound like Hygge. I love the kind of going-back-to-simplicity-and-cozy vibe your photos gave me and the Danish Hygge thing epitomizes it, in my opinion. Personally, I would love to be able to see different fireplaces and I love the suggestion for placing them in corners. I've kind of done that by putting a wall in diagonally, but it's still not totally the same. I'd also kind of like to have the option to put fireplaces "in" the walls, kind of like the closets where the "inside/back" is inside a nook and the frame and door of the closet show. Does that make sense? Hygge can also translate well into other seasons because, after all, coziness is not relegated to only winter and fall. I don't know what we have coming up in the vote, but I do hope the gurus have looked at this Danish way of life for inspiration. :)

    I'm also on this same train of thought. I posted some clothes in one of the other threads which were just some ideas. I like the idea of hygge/country/global styles. I tried sharing some clothing ideas from different cultures. I'd also be interested in layers and scarfs. In terms of interior design, I have a similar line of thought.

    I'll share a few inspirational photos that seem to fit the theme. I'll admit that it has been more interesting to look stuff up than I would have thought:

    I love this look and hope we get a good amount of item to create craft rooms that would be so cute. I also think we need a lot more clutter items

    A wood stove would be awesome! It'd be cool if your sims actually had to prep wood for the wood stove too (like having a outdoor wood pile or shed). It'd be also cool if your sims' pets had their own special interactions with the wood stove (like cats would like taking naps near the wood stove because it's warm and toasty there).

    Or, I know this probably wouldn't happen, but it'd be cool if your sims could make warm drinks or some foods on top of the wood stove. Some folks I knew had a wood stove with etched in 'elements' on the top. The wood stove was hot, so they'd cook applesauce on the wood stove instead of their oven. Maybe sims could do prep warm drinks (like tea, hot chocolate, or apple cider) or specific snacks on top of the wood stove.

    My childhood home didn't have a wood stove, but many people I grew up with had homes with them as their main source of heat. They really give a house a homey feeling, especially in the late fall and winter on a rainy or snowy day.
