Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Allo and good day.

These walls are the first in a set of subway tile walls I created. This set wasn't a pre-planned thing. I created a couple of subway tile walls for another, much larger set and got a bit.....carried away with the colors. I couldn't help myself. I was instantly transported back to my first year as an art major, when I spent hours trying to separate hundreds of paint chips by hue, value and chroma and gluing them into my Munsell color workbook. *sigh*

So, because of my lack of restraint, the collection of walls have been broken into 3 different parts. This batch is the neutral colored and monochromatic walls.

Hopefully these walls will be a welcome addition to your Victorian and more chic/modern lots.

I made the tile texture myself, so if you'd like to create your own colors for these walls, you MUST, MUST obtain my permission first, and give me credit as well as a link back.

COLLECTION file is included in the zip.

Update June 10, 2008:
I fixed the .zip file because it didn't actually contain the full tile wall. So if you downloaded the set before June 10, please redownload. If you are downloading AFTER June 10, don't worry.

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

I downloaded this entire set not long ago and it looks wonderful in my bathrooms, but I was wondering if there is a floor that goes along with these. None of the ones that I've got in-game seem to go with the wall in a way that I'd like.

Beautiful and thank you!! I hope some day there might be recolors of the tiles themselves in the wall tones you have provided... but I know this is all so time-consuming and will hope and wait patiently. =) Maybe for TS3?
