This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

This custom content if it is not clothing, may require a seperate download to work properly. This is available at Colour Enable Package (CEP) by Numenor.

After I uploaded my Claybee Living Room I decided it was time to play the game for a while again, instead of diving straight back into Photoshop and SimPE. That resolution lasted all of eight minutes. So, new bathroom set!

To go with that LR and the Kitchen/Dining Room , I've done a set of Maxis/EA recolours to kit out your sims' bathrooms. As in previous rooms, I've recoloured items from a bunch of EPs, but I've also included a lot of base game equivalents (My attitude is, if I'm gonna take over a week to make an upload with all the little bits and bobs I want, might as well take just a little longer to make the set useful to as many people as possible...). And then, because I have absolutely no sense of self-control -- or, apparently, self-preservation -- I decided that the six dozen walls and floors I'd already made for this theme couldn't possibly suffice, so I added a few more. By which I mean I doubled them.

3 RARs (and nearly 200 files!) in total- one including all the Base Game pieces, another for the EP/SP items, and the third is for all the new walls and floors. All files have been Compressorized, and I've included collection files. As the newest of the 3 rooms (so far... ;p), the "Walls & Floors" build collection covers the previous two Claybee rooms as well as the new additions, so if you have one of the previous build collection files, please just drop this new one into your Collections folder and let it overwrite the older one.
Also I've noticed... in actual Build Mode, collection files seem to have no respect whatsoever for how I organize them, but if you click the collection in Buy Mode, everything appears all lined up and sorted where it's supposed to be. Or where I like 'em, anyway. YMMV... ;o)
The one non-EAxis recolour in this set is a pair of Wooden Window Blinds from Sims2Play. They should be base game compatible, and the mesh can be downloaded here:

There's a 4th .RAR that's just a tweaked version of the oval Seasons rugs. These were reported to bleed beyond the intended area, and while I wasn't able to duplicate the problem I did make a slight change that may fix the problem. So, if your "rooster rugs" are wonky, try downloading these. Same filenames, so they'll just overwrite the others.

Preamble done? Time for the laundry list!

Base Game Recolours

Colonial ComboCleen Shower/Tub (Plumbing / Showers & Tubs / 2200) - 2 rims, 5 curtains
Floral Sink (Plumbing / Sinks / 330) - white with theme-colour stripes
VaporWare Submergence Spa (Plumbing / Hot Tubs / 8500) - 6 colours
I didn't recolour a base game toilet, since I like the plain white, but I included one in the collection file to save some clicks while building because I'm exactly that lazy

Counter Culture "Surface" (Surfaces / Counters / 200) - 2 wood, 4 tops - as usual, applies to both versions (doors & drawers...as well as the island)
Chez Moi Counter (Surfaces / Counters / 800) - 2 wood, 3 tops - also applies to doors & drawers and the matching island
Cozy Colonial End Table (Surfaces / Coffee Tables / 400) - 2 wood

Reflective Glass Mirror (Decorative / Mirrors / 100) - 2 wood
Antique Metal Sconce (Lighting / Wall / 153) - 2 colours

Open-Wall Wall Fan (Decorative / 3500) - 3 versions, theme's floral fabric, and hand-drawn branches/blossoms on creme & gold
Winter Blossoms (Decorative / Wall / 650) - "Small Brown Owl on a Pine Branch" by Hiroshige Utagawa (1797-1858)
The catalog describes the original as a Korean painting. Hiroshige was a Japanese artist who specialized in Ukiyo-e. Crucial to mention? Not really, no.
Just pointing out, in case anyone wonders, that I'm familiar with the difference between being Korean and Japanese. Behold my worldly learnings.
12th Century Song Dynasty Sculpted Vase (Decorative / Sculptures / 4000) - paprika with golden print (Goldfish, by Ni Tian - Qing Dynasty)
