You appreciate the finer things in life, so why shouldnt your Sims? The Glamour Life Stuff collection adds more than 60 objects that upgrade their fashions as well as their homes. Consider the situation faced by the dapper Consort Capp, who still grieves for his dead wife but is ready to move on.
Consorts grandchildren werent surprised when he installed the Fountain of Opulence in his front yard. None of them had much interest in it except Tybalt, who thought it was funny to add some soap to the water nor did they care when Consort added the sculptures Morphic to the Maxx and The Ideal Sim to his collection.
A company CEO by day and an amateur painter at night, Consort also spent a few Simoleons on Untitled, a pop art print by well-known Sim artist Len Bledgemann. He hoped it would inspire his own painting, as would the Sim Noir print he placed on another wall.
As he prepared to find a new love in his life, Consort also indulged in some new clothes, including a formal number known as the Shoeless Sonata. If anyone could pull off the shoeless look, it was him. And he finally found an area where he shared an interest with his granddaughters: Juliette and Hermia went shopping with him, choosing the Belle of the Ball and Next to Nothing dresses, respectively.
Alone at home after a hard days work, Consort flipped through a catalog while his children entertained some friends. Perhaps it was time for new furniture too. The Affluent Armoire looked like it would match his existing décor, as would the Luxurious Nights Sleep bed. The family room would look even better with the Prosperous Perch Sofa, along with the First Class Shelves.
Consort could add to his art collection with the Greco-Roman piece Head on Marble. Or perhaps The Etched Life, a triptych that he saw as a reflection of the maze that is corporate life, and which would look nice in the hallway. And there was even more he could consider for future purchases, such as Lifestyle of the Pharaoh, a picture depicting ancient Egyptian life, which seemed to draw on the same timeless concerns as the modern era.
Even more items caught his eye: the Shimmering Light of Elegance chandelier and the Pampered Sounds Stereo. The Charming Reflections Mirror and the Rug de Exuberance. The Now or Nehru Suit and the Deluxe Tux. And a wide variety of paneling, carpeting, floor tiling, and more.
Yes, Consort had plenty of ways to bring even more style and comfort into his life. And if he could find another Sim to share them with, even better.
