The wife and I are closing on our first home at the end of the month, if everything goes as planned. We are discussing paint options and I get the large basement room as a man cave, at least until our family starts to grow. I want to paint it in cardinal and gold, but the wife doesn't want it to "look like a dorm room." Any ideas on how to pull a classy, yet cyclone themed room? There are no real windows to speak of, its a long and narrow room, with the painted foundation on the long wall and end of the room, with the second long wall broken up by a of couple doors and an open closet area. She wants to paint the wall behind the tv (and massive TV stand) cardinal and gold horizontal stripes, but I really don't care to go through the work to hide it behind the tv. I want to paint the long wall cardinal with gold vertical stripes at the midpoint, imitating the throwback jerseys (though the ceiling is low and so it may not look good in execution), and she doesn't think that is a good idea. Any tips on what you have found to look good or even pictures of your space would be super helpful.
