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.


All these curtains have now been updated for compatability with the upcoming Expansion Pack. The files in the attached zip will overwrite the old versions. Note that if you have any of these curtains in use on your lots they may revert to Maxis standard colours/patterns when you load up the lot. If this happens, just use the in game "Design tool" to reselect the correct design.


I was playing around with recolouring curtains and got a bit carried away.
Here are 10 new velvet curtains to enhance your sims decor.

They are slightly textured/patterned.

Credit should go to Pinhead for his awesome tutorial, RGiles for his trailblazing work on recolouring and of course Quaxi for SimPE All 10 colours are included as seperate packages in the zip.


**UPDATED** Matching Veil curtains now available here

**UPDATED** 02-01-05 Beige and white added by request.

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

The textures you've added really add something to the curtains. They're fantastic.

The screenshot looked like there was gray, but there isn't. Darn.

I couldn't wait to get these in my sim house, but they weren't there when I started my game (I haven't rebooted yet, so I'm hopfull they will show up when I do that). They look great!!!

Duh I thought updated meant EP Ready
I guess I should learn to read. In my excitement, I thought I could take your beautiful curtains off my update list. I do love them. I have them all vevet and quaint. I mean what is a Sims2 house without beautiful curtains? Are you going to update them so they are compatible with the new University expansion pack please? I would appreciate it. Thank you. :D
