Hello Simmers!
Many years ago The Sims team moved to Redwood Shores – we got a fancy new floor with fancy new décor, we got to name our meeting rooms (Bladder Failure & Social Bunny hee hee) and make it our own.  Recently we've been given a chance to refresh our studio again! It’s time to put up some new decorations, new paint, new flair and we want your help!  You are such a HUGE part of why we do what we do – your creativity constantly inspires and motivates us.  We'd like to create some spaces in our studio dedicated to YOUR creations.  What does The Sims mean to you? Paintings, sketches, collages, digital art – what has it inspired you to create?  Send us your art – something that represents you and The Sims (any The Sims product that moves you) and we'll start creating a gallery dedicated to you.

What have you made? We'd love to see creations inspired by any of The Sims games – from the very first The Sims , to The Sims 3 , to any of the console games (hey, The Urbz had some amazing style)! Pieces can be any of the following:

  • Photographs
  • Collages
  • Paintings, drawings, sketches
  • Handmade crafts that can be hung on walls

Please send your physical creations to:

The Sims

209 Redwood Shores Parkway

Redwood City, CA 94065

Not able to ship something to us but want to share your creations? We’re accepting digital artwork as well! Send your digital wonders inspired by The Sims to: with the subject line: Artwork for the SimGurus

Get your stuff sent to us by April 4, 2014!

We can't wait to see what you will send us! Keep an eye out on our channels as we'll be sure to show off the creations on our walls! 

Thank you for continuing to be part of The Sims universe and helping to make The Sims the special thing that it is.

Hey Simmers!

Rejuvenate your senses and discover your green thumb this spring in the Bohemian Garden! In this whimsical palace, let your inner free spirit run free!


Try your hand at landscaping and plant an array of different colored flowers! 


When full in bloom, the garden also includes an exciting selection of Bohemian Fruits and Nuts! Yes, the rumors are true. You can tend your garden and produce strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, peaches, chocolate beans, pecans and pears! That’s 8 different premium items! 


There’s also room for you to relax. Wouldn’t you love to sit and hang out in one of these? 


I love how the lights hang in this canopy! Can you imagine all the different ways you can style this?


In my opinion, it’s the perfect place for the best chair on The Sims 3 Store. For those of you who follow me on Twitter, you’ll know I’m dying to have this!


The Bohemian Garden has been one of my favorite sets to design. I’ve reimagined some fan favorites and some of these items will tie directly into items in the next couple of releases!  


Stay Tuned,
