Default What colour

Do you think represents the music of UB40 the best (and not red, gold & green please) I am about to decorate my office/computer room (really the spare bedroom) in my new house and I am going to hang all my UB40 artwork etc in there. I cannot decide what colour to paint it so I thought I would ask you lot what you think would be best

Any suggestions

If you have art work to go on the walls then adding a colour may take away the true glory off the pics/art work. id be inclined to go for a neutral colour on 3 walls with an accent colour either on the wall with the window in or the one opposite the window. the accent colour i would use would be indigo. good look with the decorating!

Have I told you my freaky story about wall colours?
About 7 years ago, I was trying to find a colour for my wall.. I was round my friend Denises, and picked one of her cds coz I liked the colour.. I took it to B&Q and matched the colour to the cd, then painted my living room. I then got the call that invited me to interview to work for UB40... The CD?
UB40 Cant help fallin in love with you...
lovely shade of burnt orange!

PS IT looked great!
PPS Often wondered what woulda happened if Id chosen Spice Girls cd!

Big Love

Great story Luci - what a good idea - I will go through all my UB40 CD's out when I get home and look for inspriation.

OMG if you have picked the Spice Girls CD - you would have had a room painted like a Union Jack and be unemployed

no let me explain - I work in graphic production, If you have a Black background if enhances the picture - the idea is not to see the walls but the picture you hang .
