I love building and decorating houses. I especially love decorating with a particular color scheme in mind and having the colours more or less match. I blame the TS3 CAS-tool for that. But what I love even more is combining different textures with the same color or with more or less the same color but different saturation levels. And that's when I found Poppet's awesome True Romance Colour Palette. I used 11 of her colors and added a darker green to make it complete.


So what's included? Short story: 72 walls. I wanted brick, concrete and horizontal siding in these colours so that's what I ended up doing. They are all horizontally and vertically tileable, because one of my pet peeves about the Holy Simoly concrete is the slight gradient at the bottom. Brick and concrete are both in those 12 colors. The horizontal siding comes in four flavours: without trim, left trim, right trim and trim on both sides. The brick and poured (concrete) both cost §3, and the siding costs §4. I've separated them into zip-files by type, but there's also one big .zip in case you want to grab everything.

As another "matchy-matchy* player (at least, some of the time) I agree with all the comments so far!

I know the last post is old, but gratitude shouldn't be time relative. If this is improper (necromancy), please feel free to delete this...

I just wanted to thank you, Klaartje, for this wonderful set of walls. My brother and I have been in extreme disagreement on what to paint the house my family trust owns and I live in (I want deep azure, he wants ochre!). So, I made a Sims replica of my house so he can try on different colors, see the end result, but couldn't find a wide enough variety of exterior wall colors (I have siding). Then I found your excellent collection; I have my favorites, and I think there *might* even be a few in there my brother and I can both be happy with. Thank you so much! You may have helped to head off a familial conflagration.
