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.

Hi my name is Gummilutt and I'm a pastel-oholic. I love pastel colors, and I love matching things. So when I made a wallpaper set in pastel, I wanted to recolor my favorite curtain in the same palette. And so, this set was born.

These are recolors of the base game mesh Cornerstone Victorian Velvet Drapes. My pastel wallpaper set 1 has 32 wallpapers in pastel colors. This set uses the same colors, so you get 32 recolors in shades of blue, green, pink, purple and yellow.

You can see all of the recolors above, as well as a color chart. Files are clearly labeled, so you should be able to pick and choose fairly easily. I've also included a picture showing you how to delete recolors in game, if you'd like to look at them and decide on the spot. You place the drapes, and use the recoloring tool (press R or select it from the UI). Click the drapes, and the recolors will come up in a little box. Mark the recolor you want to delete, and use the little paperbin in the corner.

Files have been compressed with jfades compressorizer.

If you like these drapes, you should check out the 2-tile version by IgnorantBliss. They will pull textures from the 1-tile version, so these recolors will work for the 2-tile version as well.

Thanks to Numenor for the tutorial I used to learn how to recolor things, and to SimPE for providing the tools needed.
