One of the ideas I had was playing with contrasting colors of RED/BROWN stained wood vs BLUE/PURPLE fabric accented with Blacky
But I've never seen it done before so I wonder if it would look good in person or not ? Also, I've never seen fabric like that either.
Another option I had was black fabric, but I worry it would look bad or be too dark. Another options was black, and different shades of grey. I for sure do not want to do RED fabric or paint at all, but I like RED and darker RED specifically... stained wood. I'm looking for a bold color yet dark enough to light control that would contrast or go well with RED or BROWN stained wood. Ideas? Ever seen fabric like that?
Yeah, I have..............at a disco-tech in Berlin, Germany.......think Mike Meyer's skit "Sprokets"
Man, that is bold! But coming from you......seems fitting.
Color was a HUGE battle for me.......originally, I wanted greens and browns. With all this black talk here, I justt couldn't go that route, but in end used black as an accent color and gone many shades of gray. Gray-brown carpet, gray-Brown ceiling though more of a bronze, gray-green fabric.
I always figured from beginning wood would emphasize color in room and it has. TMcG said something that hit home.......don't distract from tones of wood which makes perfect sense.
Your stain can bring out any tones you want.....choice wisely by matching wood to stain to hue.
Never thought gray would be final color in room......it was a compromise between black.
If you use stain grade wood, don't you want that to be your focus in room?
You are in for a battle..........color is always the biggest issue since it sets tone in room. Gray is a compromise.........there are other color shades that will work.........even neon blue or purple!
