I am a painting contractor and did a boy's bedroom some years ago that was sports themed. One thing to keep in mind is that how you want the room to look a few years from now, when tastes change, could be very different. You can make your "next faze" easier if you keep that in mind. I would do the trim i.e. the crown, baseboards and door/window casings in a neutral off white. Purple and gold are both strong colors, to much of a good thing is hard to live with. What I did in the bedroom was to add 1 1/2" beaded mullion 12" apart at chairrail height and stenciled footballs, softballs, basketballs and other sport items in the middle of the mullion (I would do this on an off white background so the items show up well) You could do just the basketballs and LA logos. Above the chairrail do the gold and below the purple. My like is to add the weight to the bottom of the room, much of the purple would be hidden from sight with furniture and the gold on top would make the room warmer and brighter.

Yes, I have a little trouble following your descrip of the room. Post two or three and be sure to capture the various highlights of the room.

I know that Glidden makes team colors. Here is a nice page that may stimulate some thoughts. The entire brochure, with pics, can be scrolled through with various schemes.

JPC, the red text is what's confusing me. None of your walls can be painted?

m1951mm, you're losing me here. I'm looking at a pic, I think is the room, and it differs from the way you describe it. You say you have floor to ceiling red oak flooring, the pic doesn't have that. You're leaving me too much to guess.

Joe, I am not the one doing the room or who started the thread. I am only giving advice on a job I did previously. The picture sharing site was for the purpose of the person who started the thread to see a sports themed room completed. Sorry if I confused you .

NP Joe, In reading the original post (poster seems to be out of the loop) I feel they were saying that they have new floors in red oak, new baseboards-primed, walls and crown-primed ready to go, not oak walls, lol, but could be read that way. In rethinking this post with the red oak floors I might be tempted to do the walls all in the gold. Red oak and purple even with painted off white baseboards could be hard on the eyes. The purple could be brought in with many different ideas, i.e. painted squares on the wall as a background for logos, stripes or whatever. Would love to see some input from the original poster as to what they want.

Kids change their minds and tastes so fast I always cringe when colors too dramatic get mentioned or elaborate room designs have to be dismantled.

I was a painter by trade so guess I shouldn't mind painting over things.

I learned to love electrostatic decals and even adhesive vinyl ones I could have produced at the local large output graphics outlets.
