Thanks! The mural was done last Thursday night. Jeff did a great job. I've been trying to get a picture, but no luck yet.

What color temperature are your lights? They look like standard 3000K. It could just be the camera. But if I could suggest something it would be to get 4000K or 5000K lights. It seems like that color temperature would go better in a room with gray and blue. I've always heard the more yellowish bulbs are more for browns, and greens, natural tones, etc. I may be seeing it wrong in the pictures and your room still looks great, but a lot of guys forget about bulb temperature in respect to wall color.
I have temporary incandescent lights in the room now. I need to order the dimmable Cree LEDs. I was thinking 2700K/3000K, but I'll try a 4000K. We have a couple in our kitchen over the sink. My wife is not a fan of how cold the 4000K look in the kitchen, but that may be a color scheme mismatch since the kitchen is yellow with light brown cabinets.

Quite the transformation for 2 hours of work. Looking good!
There was singing, but it didn't sound like an angel. Seriously, there was singing. My mom laughed - she knew I was pretty excited.

Thanks Matt. Has been a relentless push over the past few weeks. I hope to catch up on my sleep over the holidays. Using GOM Anchorage fabric in Wolf for the wall frames.
The columns and below the screen will be GOM Ancorage in Onyx.
And have something a bit different planned for the back wall. Putting a large fabric frame with a picture of the Jamaican coast line at dusk on the back wall. nickbuoll
graciously did the Photoshop work. Received the fabric print from Spoonflower
on Friday. Came out quite nice.
I did a poor mock up of the back wall in PowerPoint - dimensions and colors are off a bit:
If it doesn't work, I'll replace it with the Wolf to match all of the other wall frames.
