One piece left - wall color

bluerymelJanuary 29, 2013
I've assembled the desk, credenza and picture. All are large pieces in a small room. It's a rustic theme. There are no doors to this office and I'd like to do sliding barn doors, thinking to stain them to match the desk. I need wall color and am thinking dark. The horses are on b.moore iron mountain. Soot was recommended at the store. The large beige filing cabinet is on it's way out.
Looking for suggestions for wall color and barn doors.

Everyone did a great job helping me with the outside of the house, I thought we'd move inside.

Love the russet colour in the rug. Will look fantastic against your rough wood and the blue. Be careful to keep natural light and natural bulbs in your desk lamp to offset depression in a dark room, especially when doing taxes lol. Try up lighting the horses with a small spotlight if it looks good make it permanent. Love it already!

Looks great! Continue picking colors from the rug. The golden color would bring out those shades in the painting and compliment the grey. Wrought Iron scounces for the wall above the credenza.

LOVE your pieces and especially the painting. I don't think the rug is doing the room any favors though. I think you might like the turquoise in the painting, or the dusty blue-green of the credenza, somewhere in the rug. I would pull wall colors from the painting.

The rug is "the odd man out" here. This room will be beautiful when you finish. Can't wait to see it. Great art choice!

Oh...and the barn door would be perfect if you have the wall space.

I forgot to mention the rug will be leaving; for now, it's protecting the hardwood from the iron legs.
I'm going through houzz and looking at turqouise/teal and plum combinations. I'm not sure what color to call the credenza.

Love the room. I would leave the barn doors unfinished and build them with old wood. Paint the walls a dark grey and then bring in the turquoise.

I would paint all four walls iron mountain, move horse picture to wall above credenza so you can see it from the doorway. Glad you are getting rid of the rug. Consider a natural sisal or a cow hide rug.

I think the rug sounds perfect.
I don't know your plans above the credenza but if you are looking for more art you might like a triptych (a set of 3 paintings hung together to create one image) of winter birch trees... but not as big as the horses. Just a thought.
