So - I have been working for about three years, browsing, asking a bunch of questions and even having Mr. "BIG DC" himself swing by for a quick consult as he was passing through (which by the way, to those that can make it happen, man he knows his stuff)
Now the question...
Mud/Taping will be done this week and it is nearly painting time...my ceilings are going to be black (with hopefully a starfield similar to Spaceman's). The front wall will be GOM in front of "OC703" accoustic material...and BLACK as well.
Here is my confusion...I really wanted to paint the soffits/columns dark as well, but many many many "if not all of the finished theaters" have lighter columns/soffits etc. Is there any reason why I just can't go "dark" everywhere? We were thinking a few different shades of dark brown on the column/soffit.
I figured most of them were for contrast...but since I have a "open dedicated" theater I have contrast everywhere else.
Attached are a few pics of the ceiling/soffit of the theater area, as well as overall pics.
Any and all comments welcome.
Thanks gang as always!
