I will move soon and I would like to change my room. The bedspread will be black and white, and the curtains, the cushions and the rug will be red.
But i'm not sure for the walls color! I thought painting the walls this colour, but I really hesitate. And I don't know if I should paint all the walls the same color.

If you have any colour ideas, it will be really appreciated!


My mind first went to a warm cream, kind of like what you described. However, another direction you could go is light blues.

I threw together this palette to show you what I mean.

I don't know if this would come off too "cold" - I think it would work if your furnishings are modern. I don't think it would work with traditional pieces.


The Love Shack =D to start a pink, yes a soft almost white pink
Walls: d-girrl • Trim: white or Walls: diving apparatus
Accent Wall/Bed: groundnut with mix of colours stenciling
Vector Patterns by COLOURlovers Love_Blackboard
Pillows: my fave in pattern fabrics


Thanks for your answers ! I love the light pink idea.. I'm going to think about it :)


You should post pics of the finished product.


Love the color pink too.


LOVIN that Love Scrolling Wall!

I guess our default strategy now is ctrl+a, ctrl+c on a comment just in case we lose it without it being posted. Last week I had to re-write a comment 3 times before I learned. :P

My one wish through being patient while the bugs are worked out and the spammers run off is that management would make a short statement.

I am all for being patient while much needed changes are made to the site, but the complete absence of communication is very disturbing.
I feel it is a lack of respect towards the community to just leave us worrying and guessing every. bloody. time.

We have sat out weeks of CL not working because of DoS-Attacks, we've experienced several (for us: surprise) shut-downs as updates were implemented, we have grappled with the buggy fallout of many of these updates - and never a comment, a warning, a heads-up, an anything from anybody in charge.

Are we not worth being informed?

And now I sit and wait to see if this comment will actually be posted. I have not been able to comment anywhere, not even my own profile, for days.

Came back after being gone for 2 years to this disappointment, Also, once again, experienced issues with Seamless Light errors. Captchas are a pain in the butt (especially when they make you click though 3 pages of pics); however, I understand the need for them.

Have you tried another browser, like Google Chrome? I just tried Firefox and BPM (basic palette maker) worked fine and BPM also worked fine with Chrome. How about Photocopa? Have you tried making palettes that way? I'm just trying to help - I know it can be frustrating.

I understand you are. We're all frustrated. :)
I seemed able to make a basic palette in IE, but some of the pages on the site (like the homepage and login) take so long to load that they occasionally just lock up and stay blank. Other ones load quickly. I don't have Chrome on this computer, - I'd have to try it later on my laptop when I can access it.

TBH, I don't think I ever used Photocopa for my palettes. It never quite did what I wanted, and 90% of my palettes aren't based off photos.
