IKEA Iterations, part 1  

Two recolors based on actual IKEA options, plus one pink recolor.The Husie orange cover is a new cover from IKEA this year. I loved the pattern so much I had to have it. I was shocked to see the Isunda gray cover in the 2012 catalog - to me, it looked almost like that Photoshop pattern! So I recreated it with that Photoshop pattern. Finally, the pink was for a Sim family who needed the Karlstad in pink. You need it in pink as well.

I’ve discovered that, strangely, not all of the MALM set is available in all colors. Lilac and turquoise-gray (their color term, not mine) are only for select items. However, I’m a matchy match rebel and made these for the entire set.

The POANG recolor is inspired by the Blomstermala option. This print is much prettier the IKEA’s original in my opinion.

Recolors of the entire HEMNES collection found in the IKEA stuff pack. Includes two striped drawer recolors.

I saw two interesting options for the BILLY bookcase on the IKEA site, one white with an orange interior and one white with a blue interior. Those two spawned a set of twelve recolors - white with a colored interior shelf and the solid color to match.
When using with Mutske’s or Leefish’s emptied versions, unfortunately, only the top of each shelf has color. Disappointing, but understandable because of the shadows that came on the Maxis texture.

Very nice colors and patterns in this bundle. I snagged everything, but especially love the pattern on the POANG chair. Thank you! :)

Thank you so much for sharing these re-colours! :D I use items from the IKEA pack in practically every house, so I'm thrilled to see all these colour options! In particular, I love the idea of the two-tone Billy bookcases. You and IKEA make a great team! :D

I'm obsessed with IKEA, so your compliments are music to my ears, or rather, eyes. I appreciate the kind words!

I really love colorful furnitures, other than "solid color", these are beautiful, thank you :)

I love color, too, and it's nice to include a pattern from time to time. I'm glad I'm not the only one; I'll try to do more in the future!

Thank you thank you very much. I love IKEA and I pretty much put it into every house of my Sims so I really appreciate the recolors you shared here. Cheers.
