color indecision

officesetbaI’m in love with this desk redesign from Goodwill Glam via Apartment Therapy. There was a black desk in our condo when we moved in a couple of years ago, and it’s been on my to-deal-with list ever since.

Do you see the similarities in the lines? This desk is in desperate need of a serious sanding and a new coat of paint. I would get rid of it, but it’s perfect for sewing projects (the only other hard space to work on in the condo is our small kitchen table). I definitely don’t want to do black again, but I worry about putting a bold color on (no matter how gorgeous) considering how close the desk is to our new accent wall:



Maybe I should paint it a crisp white to encourage it to blend into the wall behind it  (and reduce the visual clutter of the room)? Or a similar red to the accent wall? Maybe a shade or two darker or lighter? Or should I go crazy with color do the same shade of emerald green? I do love the way the greens in the plant pop against the red wall, though…
