If you had Black-Brown Ikea furniture, what color would you paint your room? - Page 5

post #41 of 52
Okay, you convinced me into getting the paint cans out and getting the color info for them.

The bedroom is painted in Sherwin-Williams SW6220 Interesting Aqua mixed in Dutch Boy Refresh Flat Enamel Paint, because the Menards will mix any color in any paint. At the time, the Menards was running a sale on Refresh, and it has extremely low odor.

The living room is Glidden Forest Khaki as the main color, with Glidden Blue-Grey Slate as the accent wall. These colors are mixed in Glidden Premium Interior Latex - Eggshell because it was on sale, and because there was a Home Depot very close to my work.

The Glidden has slightly more of a paint odor than the Dutch Boy does, which is something to keep in mind if you need to keep the smell of paint down. You can get any color mixed in any paint, so don't feel obligated to get a color mixed in a specific brand just because their name is on the color palette strip.

In my experience, The Dutch Boy covers a lot farther than the paint calculators say it will. I'm no paint pro, and used pretty thick coats, and still only needed 1 can instead of the 4 that it said I needed. So I've had 3 cans of this chilling out in a cabinet under the sink for when I redo the kitchen (it's a rather bright and unappealing blue).

I think I would just paint a single accent wall and paint it sangria or carmine red. I just think that single accent walls look great with modern furniture layout. Not to mention, it's less work and less paint, which means less money and less time! Double tripple WIN!

I have a lot of black ikea stuff in my bedroom. The color I chose for my walls was a deep cornflower blue. Looks great.

Green is also a good choice, as is red if the room is large enough.

The Sherwin-Williams color chip was from a Sherwin-Williams store. The Dutch Boy paint was from Menards, a big home-improvement store chain in the Midwest.

Sherwin-Williams Store Locator


This info is from the mixing label on the Aqua, it might be useful for your paint mixing person if you can't find the color chip.

Sherwin-Williams allows you to download a palette set for Photoshop that is the exact colors for all their paint codes, so I did that. This is SW6220, on CS4. If your printer is calibrated properly, you should be able to print this, take it to the store, have it color matched, and get the right color.

The pics of the rooms are on page three of this thread. Here's a permalink for you:

Ya I got it from Lowes. And it does look great with black/brown furniture which is exactly what I have. It really does look much better than the picture I posted. To me my room feels more relaxing since I painted it and it looks great too I think. BTW I just grabbed a paint sample card off the Valspar wall in the store for them to use to mix mine. Valspar Robin's Egg is the exact name.

I have a black-brown desk, chest of drawers, wardrobe and bedside table. I personally have 3 walls in a magnolia colour (eggshell white would do, or a sort of natural hessian colour), and a dark red wall for my bedhead wall (the wall my desk goes up against)

You can just see the magnolia on the right hand side (my room had a built-in wardrobe, which we took the doors off - in there is painted the same colour as the other 3 walls)
