Here are some Wall recolors that I created with the in-game Diamond Pattern by color matching the original Maxis paint colors from the base game. There are some attractive and interesting combinations and they can be used alone, coordinated with others in the set or combined with the Maxis default wall paints. These are all found in the Paint category under Wall Coverings.

They were created using HomeCrafter Plus, so there should be no compatibility issues. I apologize for the pictures, I have lost the ability to pan and rotate the angle of view with my mouse. The double row of walls in the center picture was taken on the shadow side of the wall, as the pastel colors were barely visible, even with the light set on low. The panels that appear to be light grey with colored diamonds are actually pure white paired with the colors. The first picture is of the various 'whites' and neutrals found in the original selection, this is why they look similar in color, but they are quite distinct in the game.

There are 36 packages of the Maxis-matched paints and 10 packages of custom color combinations for variety. They are in one zipped file for all 46 wall packages, but they are identifiable by their names. Just unzip the files and place them in your Downloads folder, they may also go into a subfolder.

Please enjoy - I hope you find many creative uses.

I love this wallpaper and was glad to see new colors for it. Thanks!

The intent is more dangerous then the action.
