This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Here are two recolors for the Grand Trianon Set for the kids.
You must get the set from here, items shown are from both the Mirror Bedroom (you need the floor mirror for any of this to work) and from the Loft Bedroom.

The Loft Bedroom is modular, you can arrange special desks and mirrors and beds below the upper bunk. You can also use the small desks stand-alone. There are even more pieces that I haven't shown, this is a HUGE set. You can choose to use any of the mirrors from the set, for each piece, so you don't need to have the ladybug or handprint on every mirror.

You can download the two add on packages for some toyboxes, bedding and fabric (drapes, red set only) that match these sets

And I've added more kids bedding designs, some of which coordinate with these sets here:

The striped bedding shown is free from the Honey Drop at

The picture in the frame is available from a separate GT painting set

Two more kid bedrooms

It shouldn't be necessary, since you have proved to be - by this time - a GT "Featured Artist"

But anyway, just to make things as clear as possible, here is the Dream Team Seal of Approval for your technically correct (and *cute*!) "kids" recolours:

To prevent flashing blue objects you need to install the FLOOR MIRROR

Shhhh, they don't know about the 20 or so PMs that went back and forth while I was working on those *paintings*. Besides, that was a different kind of recolor, these are my first set recolors. And only my 6th project for Sims 2.

Don't worry, I'll be sure to bug you if I ever get up enough umph to work on making the Gondor King Statues for Sims 2

The Grand Trianon set has special recoloring requirements, and the Dream Team (see their post in this thread) has made a point of verifying that recolors of their set are done correctly, and awarding people the little badge to show. I believe all the recolors currently on site all have been awarded it, the team has always been willing to help folks if needed. Sometimes they awarded it in the GT thread, and expected folks to add it to their post, as I have.

Never argue with an idiot, they'll only drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience...

This is too cute, tiggery. I can't wait to use it in the game!

tmcgraw41: the floor mirror is part of the Grand Trianon collection. If you downloaded the set, it should be included. Just to be on the safe side you should go back and redownload it as you need to have it to have the recolors show up.

Go to the first page of the Grand Trianon set as linked above. Unless you have a mega slow computer and download speed, scroll to the bottom of the first message with downloads and download the whole collection, it's one of the last links in the first set of downloads.

If you do not want to download everything, the floor mirror is near the bottom of the first set (called Mirror Bedroom). Beyond that, you'll need pieces from the mirror bedroom and loft bedroom to get the pieces as shown.
