Suggest a new colour scheme for the forum! It will be changed to the winner's design

Also if anyone wants to put forward an icon I'm sure I can find a place for it to be used Wink

I would prefer anthracite, it has more of a steamy connection.... Wink

Please ... for starters ... please get rid of the Hot Pink! I'm already having a headache.

Then we can work something out, I'm sure.

Really, y'know, echoing some of the colors in that paisley swatch might work ...

I originaly tried to, but my attempts at changing the colour have been a bit hit & miss as far as being able to select them... Also the pale yellow illicted a rather bad response from one member Wink I think I'll keep it as 70's colours untill I have a bit longer to play around with it & sort out something a bit more attractive. I'm also wondering if I can try to sort out a tophatted smily set...

Actually, the colors are not unlike those we decorated our first apartment with - in 1965!

However, it was more splashes of bright on a fairly neutral background.

(Curiously, we have an Indian bedspread and a couple of dhurries in very similar colors now. Not currently in use however.)

Maybe replace the red with teal? Or crimson? Cuz it's still a tad too intense.

Much improved overall though.

I'd say keep the tan and pale orange - replace the mustard yellow with a light teal and the red/pink with a navy blue, then you would approximate the colors in the paisley above. Although it is rather pleasantly colorful as is - my only real objection would be to colored text on a colored background - eye searing! cyclops

Considering it is spare goggles, I would think a darker, danker, muddier version of BG, a bit like the engine room, or the prefab where we are in refuge.

Khaki tan and olive drab - for that "bivouac" feel? alien

How about something like this (ignore the text which doesn't cope well with the colour editor)?

I agree 100%, even these colours are quite a strain! Prof. Fzz's suggestion is perfect in my opinion.

I also agree that the aforementioned color scheme is quite pleasing to the eye.

Although it does make me feel rather as though I've been trapped in a Gucci handbag... Smile

I rather like the colour scheme! Seriously. It reminds me of the old bungalows from primary school. They would be set up as temporary buildings to accommodate the overflow of students while the main building was remodeled.

...the school was never remodeled, of course, and the old carriages, with their funky, lead paint, became permanent. Good times...

Black and white would be nice--with a dash of corner ornamentation and daguerreotype shadows here and there?

Sorry about the spinach- I knew my internet was going to be turned off, so the colour was hastily chosen Embarassed
What do people think of the colour scheme now I think its a bit more apt rather than my neon or 70's colours...
