Ask A Color Expert- The Game Room

This is a game room is painted in Catalina Coast. There is a poker table with cards, beer, popcorn and poker chips. There is a dart on the wall and photos of boats.

Hello Color Experts!
My name is Nathan, I am a thirty-one year old bachelor who just bought a house. Being that I do not have a family of my own, yet, I would like to turn my family room into a game room where I can invite friends over to have fun and hangout. I need help with paint options! I have a chair rail, baseboards and molding in the room. So I would like some type of white and perhaps a dark blue/coastal color to make it nautical. Thank you!

Nathan,
Thank you for your interest in BEHR paint and congratulations on your new home purchase!
I’m delighted to pull together a combination for your game room. Below are suggestions for masculine blue tones that impart a nautical feel. Please take a look at Catalina Coast PPU13-3, Shipyard S500-6, and Superior Blue S490-7. As for your chair rail, baseboard and crown molding, I recommend a neutral white such as Swiss Coffee 12.

    What color complements a Gray Headboard for a guest bedroom

    • Deanna Torrez says...

      Hello Raymond,
      Thank you for visiting our blog!
      Here are some recommendations that will coordinate nicely with a gray headboard. Riverdale N410-3, Strong Winds N380-4, October SKy N440-4, Rainy Afternoon N430-4 or Ashen Tan N220-2.
      Due to differences in monitors and technical factors, the colors here cannot be represented with
      their true qualities. These color samples should only be considered a guide. Please refer to actual swatches for true color. We strongly recommend beginning with an 8 oz. sample container of the color you choose and apply it to a small area on your wall to ensure your satisfaction with the color choice. It is always a good idea to see how the light and ambient conditions affect the color at different points in the day.
      Colorfully Yours,
      Deanna

    I have a great room with a red/deep orange dining area and yellow in the living area. What color in the living room would complement with a red/deep orange dining area?

      Hello Nancy, thank you for visiting our blog!
      Here are some recommendations that will coordinate with your red/deep orange dining area.
      Shiitake N220-4, Coco N270-3, Nightingale Gray N200-3, or High Style Beige N270-1. We also have 8oz samples available at the Home Depot so that you can test these out first.
