Everyone, I need your wisdom and creativity. Soon I will be in the painting stages of my construction and I am struggling with a color scheme for my HT and my adjacent Media Room. My preliminary thoughts are: Carpet will be either a gray or burgundy berber. HT will have a chair rail molding, below will be a dark gray and above will be a burgundy. The burgundy will extend to the bottom portion of the tray ceiling. The upper (vertical) portion of the tray and the ceiling inside the tray will be black. There are six columns in the room, i'm thinking of painting those all burgundy with no chair rail on the columns. The front wall will be painted black between the two columns that will flank the screen. Outside of those columns I will maintain the integrity of the paint scheme from the rest of the room. I have chosen to have all nine seven speakers and two subs exposed rather than enclosed... they are all black and so are the leather loveseat/couch combos. My questions are: What color do I go with on the trim? Trim consists of a base board, chair rail, small crown below tray, larger crown inside tray (to conceal rope lighting) and bull nose trim on riser and front stage edges (to conceal rope lighting again). Here is a crude sketch of the basic layout although actual measurements suggest that I may have to go with a loveseat up front and the larger couch in back, you get the idea though. My Room Layout I await the flood of creativity that you all are famous for... bring the thunder!
