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.
Updated for the Cats and Dogs expansion pack. Also enabled the monster under the bed.

Description
I was disappointed to find that in TS4, unlike TS2, we cannot change the bedding design of beds seperately to the bed frame.

To remedy this, I have decided to start "Project Bedspread" in which I aim to recolour the game beds so that they can use all bedding and bed frame combinations!
(This is on a per-bed basis though so don't go expecting to find bedding from bed A available for bed B, etc.)


Info
The first bed in Project Bedspread to receive this treatment is the "Anti-Goblin Bed by Kindermade".
The frame stencils have also been edited on these recolours so that they are only present if they match the bedding design. So that means you will only get the dinosaur headboard stencil if the bedding features the dinosaur footprints, and the butterfly headboards stencil if the bedding features the hearts and stars.



(please view the attached images for all colours included)

These recolours will show up as additional options on the existing bed. There will not be a new entry in the catalogue. They share the same description and price as the originals.
They have also been organised by bed frame colour for convenience.

To install, simply extract the attached .zip and place in your mods folder.

Notes
Please note that currently the design tool does not function on custom content objects and recolours. In order to change the design of the bed you will need to sell and then rebuy in the desired design. This does not affect the original EA colours.

This is a great idea! And you are right the limited options are so boring. Thank you for taking the time.

Thank you for this. I look forward to all the other beds being given the same treatment. I wonder if you're thinking about the same thing for other objects, like dining chairs, or counters. Even if not, just doing this for the bed is good enough for me. Thanks again for sharing this project with the community.

I'm really very thankful for this fantastic mod! I was already often annoyed not to be able to get the suitable frame for the perfect bedding. Thank you so much for it!

Ah, great to see that it's uploaded! Just a suggestion; after you put so much effort into organising the swatches, don't you want to add a screenshot of that to the upload post?

I plan on doing just that later today. I forgot to take a shot prior to uploading but didn't want to delay it any longer.

It's nice to see it uploaded officially.
I haven't built any lots in TS4. (I used the premade rooms) But I miss that feature from TS2 as well. Thank you for doing this.

I always hated how everything had to be a certain color (Like the boys green/blue or girls purple/purple) without any sort of compromise. Thank you for solving this! :)

If anybody still used these, please note that I have now updated them to function with the monster under the bed and the Cats and Dogs pack so that pets cannot pass underneath them. (Insane Sims can talk to them now, too.)

Thank you for these! I didn't like how restrictive these beds were and it pushed me towards other CC sets, but now I can mix and match
