ETA, 4/18/11: Since many people have asked and since I should have included this info to begin with: If you want the recolors of the toilet seat and bathtub that are shown in the pics: They are all Piggi's recolors of those items, which you can download on her site, which is here:
Go to her Sims 2 section and then to the Maxis Recolors section from there and thence to the Bathroom section and you'll find them. Most of the colors that happen to match these tiles are in her "Chenille" colors except the dark bluey-grey that goes with the Tropical Thunder tiles. That color is in her "Teko" colors. Now, on the original post:

It's fall. When it's fall, my mind turns to cruising. I'm not going on one this year, unfortunately, but the thought of the tropics put me in mind of these tiles, which I would like to have in the Trade Wind color but can't afford at the moment. They're made by Daltile, and they're mixed-media, a combination of iridescent glass, ceramic, and occasionally bits of metal tile. They're in tropical pastel and tropical neutral color schemes, and they're perfect for sunny bathrooms. All you need is some gauzy curtains, and you're all set.

There are 6 tile floors, and I've made a matching full-tile wall and a matching half-tile wall for each, for a total of 18 pieces in the set. Below are pics of a sample bathroom done in four of the color schemes, utilizing the floor and both matching walls in each pic. Pics of the other two color schemes are attached.

The rar file contains all 18 pieces plus a collection file for all of the pieces so that you can find them easily when you want them. The files are all compressed and each is clearly named so that you can discard those that you don't want.
