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.

After a lot of building lately and working on a soft and flowery lilac theme I decided to switch gears and finish up this bright, bold Chinese-food-inspired kitchen and dining room. It's built around the most adorable fabric called (drumroll, please!) Dim Sum. I don't know where I found my original image of this fabric, but you can see it here at Spoonflower. I am so in love with this design -- I'm actually really looking forward to having a house of my own again so I can do a whole real-life kitchen with this pattern!

(If you're not familiar with dim sum you can get a quick low-down right here, complete with pictures that make me super hungry. I could murder some scallop cheung fan right about now...)

This is another mix-and-match, all Maxis recolours, set. There are two shades of wood, salt (nearly white) and bao (Cantonese for dumpling/wrapper and pronounced like "take a bow"), along with aqua, red, and tang orange countertops and accessories. Quite a few walls and floors to match. As usual, I've included recolours from a bunch of EPs, but there should be enough base game items for any game config. Rugs work with HL's Rug Fix, and all files are Compressorized. Collection file and icon are included. Appliances pictured are from my White Appliances set. And now, The Listing of the Things!
