Even those who are born to ride need a place to hang a helmet. Decorating with Harley Davidson accessories is easy, but deciding what to do with the walls can be difficult; there are so many options. Paint a mural, or use the Harley Davidson logo as inspiration.
Lime Green Walls
The Harley Davidson logo is orange, black and white. On the color wheel (used by decorators), high contrast is created by using opposite colors. Since black and white are already opposite, orange needs its contrast color: lime green. Combine a lime green faux brick wall with thick, solid black lines. The color scheme is energetic and clean, and can make a bedroom feel fresh and vibrant.
Use a projector to enlarge an image of the Harley Davidson logo and shine it onto the wall. Trace the entire logo and then paint it in, using orange, black and white paint. If you're having a hard time keeping the lines straight, consider using painter's tape or touching up the lines up with a permanent marker. You can project several small logos to use as border or corner accents or one large logo for a centerpiece mural.
Harley Davidson Color Blocks
Use orange, black and white to create blocked patterns in the room. For example, a 6-8 inch solid black line can divide a wall that's painted orange on the bottom and white on top.
Another color-blocking paint scheme involves painting black and white stripes on the bottom half of the wall and orange on the top half. A shade of orange that's a bit more red than the logo color will look better than the bright orange in the logo.
Miles of Blacktop
If you know a muralist, or if you have the artistic skill to paint a mural, consider creating a wall filled with endless rolling green hills and a two-lane highway that disappears in the distance. Puffy white clouds and miles of blacktop make for a perfect day to hit the road.
