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.
This is my second recolor of the Socialite set from Apartment Life. It is in a soft brown pinstripe and a bit worn around the edges.

The recolors are of Apartment Life's Socialite collection:

Eloquent Divinity Dining Chair
Eloquent Divinity Living Chair
Curvaceous Love
Riveting Rivets
Eloquence Elongated Floor Lamp
Eloquent Touch Wall Lamp
"Full of It" Coffee Table by E. Klektik
Four Feet and a Disk by E. Klektik
Fancy-Shmancy by E. Klektik
The Eleafquent Mirror
Steps of Style

Also some more recolors of the fantastic cushion mesh from Parsimonious. The mesh is included.

This set just made my morning! I love the texture/pattern and color you've chosen. Beautifully worn!

Any chance you might consider doing the same pattern/texture in other dusty faded colors???

Thank you SO much for it!

Oh yay, I was admiring the floor too. I want to build a small, victorian kind of cottage thats elegant but cosy at the time. I think your furniture is perfect for it. Thanks heaps

Wow, I can't believe it took me this long to stumble across this! That set had been bugging me since AL came out. Always thought it had potential, but just just so garish. I'd actually done a couple retextures for myself, but this saves a lot of time, and it's beautiful!

Can't get it...I keep getting the "Can't Display Webpage" message, even when I refresh!
I want this badly! I always hated those Maxis colors of this set.
Your colors are beautiful...I would love to see more.

Tried again today, & got it! Yay! :D

Can't believe your texture making these Maxis' objects don't look Maxis' objects... Very well done!

Jaw dropping
Breath taking
Love it! Love it! Love it !!! =D

Oh my, so exquisite...
Thank you for sharing.

Visually wish the books texture could be edited so as to make it a bit darker, or worn, of antique colors, so as to blend in overall more harmoniously.

But my, this is art.
Beautiful work..
