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.

Tan-stripe cushion recolor accented with Bravo painting by Eric Waugh with coordinating rug and loft curtains.

Are you embarassed when your simfriends with perfectly decorated houses come over and see your plain and functional rooms? No longer must you pay high prices to hire a decorator of your own. Instead, buy a Room in a Box! Room in a Box is as easy on your wallet (or rather download folder) as it is on your eyes. Set unzipped=466KB.

The Tan-Stripe-Bravo Room in a Box includes 1 recolor each of:

--Loft Curtains by Sparse and Fine (BASE game)
--Sung-Gyu Sunburst Oriental Rug 2x3 (NL expansion)
--El Sol Sofa by Günter - Mission style furniture cushions (OFB expansion)
--Nova Jazz by Saturn McGee - 3 tile painting (PETS expansion)
**painting and frame recolored separately (2 files)

Wall treatment as pictured (Maxis):"Southwestern Style" Stucco in Brick Red (above), "Fawn" Stucco (below)
Floor covering as pictured (Maxis): alternating "Hey Jute" and "Judicious Jute" carpet tiles

By changing just the wood and wall colors, you can customize your Room in a Box.

This set is very versatile and almost any color can be used on the walls and floors to complement it. See attached picture below.

To facilitate those who wish only to own the painting and/or the rug, I have included separate zips of those separately. They are included in the main download, so only download the separate files if you do not wish the Tan-stripe cushion and curtain recolors.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

This is great.. I've been trying really hard to thin out my downloads folder, especially now with Seasons coming out. I hate just using Maxis choices, this makes things a whole lot easier.. I would definitely be interested in more. ;-) Thank you very much!

I never liked the mission style furniture but now I'm amazed how good it can look, thank you!

I really like the painting! And the option to have different frames for it.
