I really like the cream colour ... I am in the basement, so having something light is kind of important ... so I don't look like I'm in the dungeon LOL
I'll be painting the borders / edges blue tonight or tomorrow ... then maybe some stripes of green and purple!!!
The best thing? If I don't like it, I just repaint it!

|Stevenzachsmom||I think it would be really cool, if you could paint the exact colors as the wall. Make it look like the colors come off the wall and over the piece, so it has stripes too. Doesn't sound like too much trouble, right? LOL!|

Carmen - thanks ... I was totally unaware of that! As a parrot owner, I'm sure you know how careful we have to be of any odours!!!
I will definitely go and see them tomorrow.
Thanks again to everyone for all your input!

we just did a bathroom , cold winter closed windows - birds in house , no problem -
Benjamin Moore even if you don't use their paint look into their colour palette and ask the owner of the shop (franchise) since most of them have experience in design .
At least they can find a colour that works for you.
we have a budgie (13 years old ) a canary , and a lineolated parrot

Some one else mentioned Benjamin Moore Paints. If you go to their website they have some great color combination ideas. The Aura paint is the best I've used.

Kyleigh have you tried the low VOC paints. I know that they are wall paints, but I think you could use them in painting the piece that you want. When I painted my daughter's room (or any room for that matter) I used a low VOC paint because of the fumes, my DH is very sensitive to any chemical smells.
Even if the rest of the furniture is beige in color you could still do a darker color on that piece and it would work. (I was in the furniture/design business in Chicago)

|jang||I think I would have tried the green color right next to the vase in the original post...then stenciled with complimentary colors already in place on the wall|

LOL see I knew I was right too ... I'm not a fan of it either. The rest of the furniture is beige ... which was why I was thinking of doing it the cream colour ... to go with the furniture and have it "pop" out.
SIGH .. back to the drawing board!!
Thanks for the input!
carmspack - I can't use "regular" paint because of the fumes - I'm doing this in the basement, with my two parrots (and of course me, and the dog and the cat) ... I can only use chalk paint and acrylics ... B M paint has too many fumes - even at their lowest level
