I agree with Chris. Use a glossy light color. It will reflect more light and is easier to clean if you get it dirty. When you go to the store, get the stuff they recommend for a kid's room for easy clean up.

I'm shocked that no one hit you with pink yet.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

How about grey and white arctic camo? I'd be kinda weird, but it would hide dirt and be fairly light reflective.

White or something in the white family (arctic, snowflake, etc.) but definitely do the high gloss finish.

you are right, but by the time you put all the really choice posters, and stolen street signs up, tools, cabinets, cabinets, etc. you don't see it.

I think you should get it white and have somebody mural the Shocker on one wall.
