Garage paint colors - could use some help

I decided to seal the floor of my garage and chose to use a red sealant. I like it, but some might say that it is an acquired taste. I am trying to decide what colors to paint the walls, but am having trouble deciding. I was thinking of doing half white and half blue set horizontally, with a matching red strip separating them down the middle. I know that all of you have good taste so figured that I would solicit your help. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Cheers!

Silver, of course. Since I know you had the good taste to paint the floor MV Agusta Red.

I say instead of painting it, get a couple of strippers for the pole you have in there!


Ok, I can see the blue/white with a red stripe and think it would be very nice..

Paint the walls light grey and the floor light grey maximizes light in there.

I'd go with white walls and ceiling for the light reflective qualities. Then finish with a 6 inch green boarder at the bottom of the walls - its Italian

I like that idea with the green stripe near the bottom of the wall

I'd definitely paint the walls and ceiling white. It'll look a lot brighter and roomier. Convenient that your garage door is white as well.

Light grey or off white on the walls. No stripes. But a large mural of a naked chick would do nicely.
