Also look at color combos from designers like Ralph Lauren and Tommy Hilfinger. They have some great Hunter/Navy/Burgundy combos.

The Guildford fabric is a option, you can contact GIK and they can send out samples. It’s what I did and I couldn’t be happier. Image1528573697.837668.jpg

I'm going to make a mental note of this suggestion for my own future use.

Yes my material on the soffit traps was Guilford, one of the whites. Looks good, as far as a gigantic rectangular pillar can lol.

i also let my wife choose!

Kidding aside - well it wasn't really kidding, my wife has good taste so she chose the colours - we went for the same colour as our wall.
Since we had one wall painted very dark grey/brown (almost black), our room has become much quieter, and our gear goes well together with it also. The panels and bass traps are also black of course.
Except for some removable panels: red, because they are put in the red leather seats when we're alone.
