    So, I was browsing through the assortment of paint colours at my local hardware store, wondering what colour to use for one of our bedrooms. Then I looked down at my white iPhone with its orange bumper and thought why not! :D The room is very... bright! I love it.

    Anyone else done something similar? :D

    I will be moving to a new place at the end of the month and I debated what color I wanted to paint my room before I moved in and I looked at my iPad and almost considered the White + Orange combo myself (white iPad + Orange Smart Cover).

    I ended up going with this combo (I'll post a picture later). OP, nice room.

    Nice color, and a very nice job on actually painting. Looks good.

    Nice....but what if your bumper breaks and you can't find a new one with the same color? :( I would be so sad

    OP, if you don't mind me asking, what kind of camera did you use to take this picture?

    talk about good color matching.
    Now for me I do not like the color orange at all so I would hate it but for some people they love it.

    The paint job looks really well done and you did good work. I have to say I find how you found your inspiration for a color choice pretty cool.

    Very nice. In the 70s I painted my room blue and put red and yellow stripes around it. My mom crocheted a matching bedspread and life was good. After I moved out I figure it took my parents about five coats of "antique white" to cover it all up.

    That's just sick. I'd suggest you find a good 12 coat program to deal with it.

    Your bumper isn't fitted correctly in the bottom right hand corner. ;)

    I've been lurking on the forums for months and just joined today to tell you how cool that looks. Nice job!

    Have to say, I opened this thread expecting to see a ton of responses bashing the OP, I am very impressed to find the opposite.

    Strong work OP and nice job on the paint. Looks great

    Wow, no kidding. The paint job is good, the color choice is horrid (for a room anyway).

    I once painted my bathroom a mango color. It was kind of cool, but it gave me a headache to be in there too long. Eventually we ended up adding all sorts of other accents in neutral colors to try and tone it down, but nothing really worked and we had to re-paint.

    I hope you have better luck!

    Yeah, in my new place my entire stairwell is orange...drives me crazy. Not knocking the OP, just wouldn't be my color choice (red & gray in my room right now). As others have said through, nice paint job.

    Funny because I've been wondering about painting one of my rooms orange. I think I'd go with more of a burnt orange though. I think there's a guy here, UFGrad or something like that. If I recall his setup pictures his room is a burnt orange color. I'm a fan of it, oddly.

    It looks good, would like to see more of the room tbh. Not for creepy girl reasons, just out of curiosity.

    Wow, thanks for the compliments everyone! :)

    Wood floors (well, laminate) which are unchanged from before. Was expecting to want to replace it, but it actually matches pretty well. :)

    I'll post a link to a MobileMe gallery once it's all finished and furnished. :)

    Ok, big decision to make now. A few months ago I purchased a set of iPhone app coasters, and I'm wondering if I should take the ultimate geek step and TILE them to the wall, in the corner where my iMac will be on a glass desk. So indecisive! What do you guys think I should do? :D
