Picking a color scheme for the new shop (Oh...I'm opening a shop!!!!)

I'm freaking beyond excited right now (and maybe a tad panicked as well).  This Friday I'll be signing a lease  for a space to move House 54 into.  It was numero uno on my Business Resolutions list for this New Year.  And things just fell into place really nicely (and very quickly) for the perfect space.  OK, maybe not perfect... It's not much bigger than most peoples' walk-in closets, but the price was right, and it gets all my production stuff out of my house.  Therefore... It's perfect.  So to take my mind of the magnitude of the situation and avoid freaking out completely before I sign on the dotted line, I'm taking this time to do a little aesthetic planning for the space.  Playing with paint chips at the home improvement stores always takes my mind off bigger, more important things.  So here's what I'm deciding between for color schemes.  Let me know what you think...      
So...light minty blue-green walls, accents of bright grassy green, with dark wood shelving and counter tops?  Or light peachy walls, accents of bright coral, with lighter, warmer-toned wood?  Basically, warm or cool?

Thanks for stopping by, and Happy New Year!


  1. The cool, with a few touches of the bright red coral.

    So where is the shop going to be?

    1. It's going to be in Jeffersonville Village. It needs a bunch of work done before I'll have it open to the public. So I'll post more "official" details when I get closer to opening day.

      Thanks for the color suggestion! I like it!
