Default Got my space.. now what?

We just bought a house and I can finally move from rubbermaid boxes to an actual craft/stamp room!! I painted the walls what I would say is close to Pink Passion ( VERY pink) Its gorgeous and I love it! It has a wall full of built in cabinets/drawers with a desk built in (all white).
Question is : I was thinking of stamping something on the walls, what should I do?? I am not big into the flowery stuff and I don't want to clash with my new hot pink walls? White? Grey? Another color? Which stamp?
Help!! Any ideas are welcome and I"ll post pics of the finished room when I'm done.

it was an honest typo, old keyboard sometimes doesn't type things at all or types doubles, of course the typist can be to blame also.

I have to admit that I laughed so hard when I noticed it!
So sorry!

guess I need to start proof reading better!

ROTFLMBO!!!!
I was too embarrassed to not edit it!
My PC keyboard sometimes types 2 of what ever key I push or sometimes not at all Not the stamp set that has doubles, no actual 'teats' involved

Sorry......I can't stop laughing...tears...

What if you would make your own geometric shapes out of a sheet of rubber gasket or craft foam? I am thinking of a room looking like the great cards shared here with Simple Shapes or Simply Circles. You could also stamp some shapes for shadow effect and stamp the butterflies or whatever on top. If it is a stamp room, I would get some ideas from your favorite cards....it would be a room with inspiration!

as for color, what about a white or a light grey or a very light soft pink and then a contrsting color for the outlines.
Beate mentioned choco chip, or how about a gold or a darker grey or bordering blue?
keep us posted as to your choices and post pics when it is done. I am so jealous I wish I had a stamp room

I don't know what look you like but what about bright colors (lime, purple,yellow, etc...) and the circle set. (can't think of the name). layer them in a fun but funky way. I don't know- just a thought.

Daven, I showed Mike the pics. But he said it's not a *real* makeover without the before pics. C'mon & share.

I so fell out of my chair on this one! It makes it worse because I came in after the edit!!

The room looks awesome!! Did you tape off for the squares or do you have a secret way to get that done easier?

okay, the squares were a direct replica of the bed spread. we measured every 12 inches from the ceiling to the floor, and every 12 inches from the left to the right (centered at the same spot as the bed). Then drew lines with a straight edge of cardboard and a cheap little level tool, taped off squares and painted.

must admit they took longer than anything else, but she's going to love it!
