My main paint color was Behr Orchid other than that ceiling is a mixed midnight blue looks very black then my wall treatments are red, black and navy velvet.
See signature for link to my theater thread.
Don't be so quick to go "flat black". Look for a (flat) dark color that fits within your overall color scheme. When the lights are down it will be as effective as flat black, and when the lights are up it will look a lot better.
Front walls and ceiling: flat black
First few feet of side walls (connected to the front wall): flat black
Other Walls: Flat Gunmetal Gray
Carpet: Black industrial with gray
Couch: Black faux suede couch cover
Curtains: black faux suede
yeah, its pretty much a black hole in there with the door closed.
How about outlets, what did yous do about them? I also have inwalls speakers that are paintable, Do I paint to match the walls, outlets, leave them white, or off color them?
My outlets and wall covers are also black. They arent painted to match so they are a bit glossy, they are just the ones from Lowes. A contrast could be cool, depending on the wall color. I was just going for the black hole look.
It has been decided! Red Carpet inset in a dark hardwood. Black front and ceiling. Cream and red walls, bottom cream top red. Cream in the bar area with a little red to tie the areas together. hopefully it turns out decent.
Does anyone have their Risers and Stage a different color than the main carpet in the room? For me, its going to be to hard to try and match up the existing carpet. It was in the house when I bought it and I have no idea how to match it up. I figured I could just start with a new color for my riser and stage and it would be used as an accent color. Jus wondering if anyone else has done this.
celling - Behr "Stealth Jet" Black 780F-7
Projection Wall - Behr "Dark Granite" Grey 780F-6
Other walls - Behr "Anonymous" Grey 780F-5
Trim - Behr "Frost" White
carpet - "dark grey" Not sure of the brand, it was what our installer recommended.
Basically I took the three darkest shades off of the Behr 780F-* color swatch and a trim color that we used on the rest of the room.

The best thing about this hobby is its your room. Do what looks good to you. I have seen what you are proposing and I think it works out well when done right.
My carpet is black with brown accents. The front wall will be black, and the 3 other walls will have chocolate brown below the chair rail (brown chair rail and base) and burgundy above. My columns will be coverered in black fabric.
I'm up in the air right now about brown or black on the ceiling. I'm using a yellow LED light in the ceiling cove to accent the ceiling, so it's a matter of what will look the best.
