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.

Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I made 6 recolours of Maxis' BG Cornerstone Victoriana Velvet Drapes and 5 recolours of Maxis' BG Doublewide Tieback Curtains, Sill-Length Tieback curtains and Floor Length Tieback curtains, as those 2 last curtains are sharing the colours of the Doublewide Tieback Curtains.

The colours I choosed are easy to match, as I am using them in my game for quite a long time and find them handy.

I have packed the Cornerstone Victoriana Velvet Drapes and the Doublewide Tieback Curtains in two different files so you can choose what you prefer.

I hope you'll like them.
Have fun

Love the gold on white,used to have a nice cream silk recolor that I must have deleted by mistake. Could never find it again and have not seen anything equally elegant until now. Thanx!

These are gorgeous! I use these curtains quite a bit, and was fed up of having to use the same style/colour repetitively... now I can't wait to see these in my game this evening! Thanks so much for sharing these recolours! :-D

I agree with every post on this page, they are awesome!
I too--was so fed up with EA's colour choices, yours are the best I've seen!
