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.

As requested by celanna.

I have to admit I have never used these curtains as I didn't like the original colours. I had started recolouring them when celanna requested the YETI colours and I may have gone a little overboard...but then again these curtains desperately needed more colours.

I did 11 colours to match the Sofa by Club Distress, 6 to match the Lap of Luxury Sofa, 6 to match the Sofa of Substance, 7 in Goth colours, 5 to match the Luxuriare Loveseat, 5 to match the Floral Fantasy Sofa by Oaktowne, 32 Random colours and 18 YETI (includes Fairy Floss and Lemon Drop).

These are base game compatible, no EP's or SP's required!
