Need help on paint color to go with Burgundy in home theater and bar room!
April 20, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We're turning our basement into a home theater and bar. It's one big room but we're trying to differentiate the theater and bar. We know we want the theater dark-black ceiling tiles, Sherwin Williams Burgundy paint and SW Raisin trim with cherry columns. For the bar we want a New Orleans feel, good colors, but nothing too bright either. We're trying to stay away from dark/man cave, yet it is a bar, so we were thinking golds, but I'm trying to find the right one. I've narrowed it down to SW brand, either Eastlake Gold, Golden Fleece, Oak Creek or Wheat Penny. Any design input would be greatly appreciated!

At this point, I'd recommend putting up those colors on a test board or even the walls. It's amazing how you think you have the right color combo and when you test it, one is not quite right. The last bedroom I did I put up the wall color on one section of the wall all the way up to the ceiling. Then did a test area of ceiling color next to wall color. Found the ceiling color way to yellow at that angle with the play of natural light in the room. Choose another shade and repainted ceiling test and was happy with choice. Now the room looks fabulous in any light.

Wall color can effect the video quality on a white or grey projection screen. Typically you want to stay neutral, but if you use a black diamond screen the color won't matter. You will also be able to have the lights on and still enjoy a movie or tv program.

Here's some examples.
