Expensive Fridges and kitchens

Well, I think the Designer Color Series of kitchen items is finally complete. I found a beautiful mesh by buggybooz that uses the repository technique to recolor a stunning set of counter and cabinet meshes - therefore only one file is required to recolor the entire set. I have recolored the counters to match the Designer Series One and Designer Series Two appliances. I tried a couple of the ones in the brights series and I was definitely not happy with the results. Some of those colors should be used sparingly at best! I also did not recolor the counter in black or white or stainless steel, as the original author of the mesh already did those recolors so I felt no need to duplicate his efforts.

I am also giving in to the pressure to recolor the expensive Maxis fridge! Those will be released all together in one set and will include all the colors in Designer Color Series One, Two, and the Brights series as well.

These will all be coming out at the beginning of May. I hope you like them!

I think I was one of the early ones who asked after the expensive Maxis fridge, and I am so thrilled that you wrestled its texturing foibles to your satisfaction! There aren't many good metallic recolours around, so I'm sure yours will be popular.

I agree that the Brights palette is probably too much all over a room, but I've seen some very striking kitchens which use a solid, saturated hue on the counter tops with more subdued cabinet finishes. Also, there is the trend of mixing upper cabinets of a different colour from lower ones, which can be harmonious with the right wall treatment behind them. In any case, I'm looking forward to the colours you have done. I was so happy when you decided to do the buggybooz counters, because I'd been looking for more options for exactly that set!
