Still missing most of the room treatments and accessories, but it is mostly Chianti (burgundy) and Black.

The Frabric Panels were all made three years ago over Christmass vacation. There are about 70 of them. See This thread about Fabric Frames On how there were made.

Your color scheme turned out really well. I like the way the ceiling lights up when you have the accent and sconce lights on. I also love the light woodwork... I think it accents things really well. Great looking theater!

Man you guys make it hard for me to post up pics of my theater as in it just doesn't rank.

Black and Off White to Camel here. Space limited my equipment is under my screen which is black and silver including speakers, the surrounds match the front pretty well, but I hated the grills so I left them off the surrounds.

I took some ultra hi-rez pics once and they came out very bad. I have not gotten around to another attempt. I was going to use very casual settings this time around and just snap a million shots hope'n for a couple of decent shots out of it.

I'm always impressed with the shots people post, I can't even seem to get a decent screen shot ever.

My rooms theme would probably actually be called some thing like "insanity". the walls and cieling are all black rubber. Carpet is somewhat grey/silver, I think the color of the carpet was called cobweb. The furnishings are all camel / off white. The riser is unfinnished construction pine (2x4's) , the media rack is the same unfinnished construction pine right now as well.

We don't feel it's too dark for the intended usage of the space, which is media/gaming/bar/social.

I opted for quite a few can lights, primarily so I have even coverage and CAN go bright if need be, but we only do it for cleaning. The normal lighting modes on the controller have everything form 40-60% or so.

The carpet is black with gray "frost" mixed in. We think it's a good compliment for the room.

The dark colors really are great for improving the picture on the screen as well...

..is Burgundy and Black.

Carpet on the base floor is a pattern that shows and highlights all the colors in the theater. Carpet on the stage and the riser uses the same patterns but is black.

Highlights include antiqued gold trim, and walnut veneer on the columns, ceiling is the renowned "Milano Blue" as suggested by many of the HT gurus here.

Seats are all black Berklines in front, and a Burgundy with gray trim on the cinema seat in the back row.

Best,
Tom

Being a Purdue grad and loving sports. My room is Purdue Gold, The trim and screen wall are Purdue Black and the ceiling is Purdue Brown. All from Glidden and Home Depot. Still have to get up the trim, work on some treatments, build a rear platform, buy new seating....the list goes on and on.





The pictures don't really do the gold justice, but this is the best rendering I have.

Hard to see in any of the "finished" pictures, but the ceilings are flat "Suede" black, and soffits are eggshell "Chianti" red:





In that last picture, the camera flash makes the red look really bright. As you can see from the previous picures, that's not how it looks in the room.

Steve - can you tell us the manufacture of the Chianti paint and where you find or the name of the fabric used on the walls. It's just such a great color combo!

Thanks! Incidentally, we opted to base our color them on playing cards, to match some art my wife found. (We like to play poker and pinochle...card table in the room yet to come). You can see the art (yet to be hung) in a couple of shots on the bottom rows of this page.

The The Suede black and Chianti res are both Behr brand paint colors. Bought them at good ol' Home Depot. I used a tinted gray primer under the red, and would recommend anybody else considering a red paint do the same.

The fabric I unfortunately don't have a name for. It's one my wife found at a local Hancock fabrics. Here's a couple of closer/brighter shots of it:





Hope that helps.

To me, this is very elegant. Is that flat black or eggshell? Do you know what color of red that is? This is one of the best I've ever seen, especially with the use of a lighter carpet. As a plus, my wife loves it.

EDIT: Never mind, I found your theater thread. Nice work.

As I browse through the pics on here, I see that many people have chosen to paint their ceilings either gray, light blue or that milano blue opposed to black. What is the reasoning behind going with another color other than black. I am trying to plan out my painting scheme.

Thanks

It all comes down to personal preference and aesthetics. In a perfect world black is the best color but for the extremely minimal effect it has on pq most people opt for a more friendly paint color.

Here's my original paint scheme before the redo.

This is a bump to move this back up. I am ready for drywall and want to see as many different color schemes as possible to help me decide which direction to go for colors. SO if you have photos of your newly completed HT/Bar please add them.

I like this place!!!

My paint was from Porter and the colors are as follows.
Ceiling Paint: French Toast
Wall Paint: Mocha Bean
Trim Paint: Mocha Cream
Accents throughout the room: Burgandy




Here is another shot from the very back of the room.




I hope it is easier for everyone else to pick the colors for the room than it was for me!


Cheers,
JJ

Nice room?

With those colors, do you get the urge to eat breakfast in the room often?
