If the interior fiberglass furniture is a light green also, then I would recommend that you leave the top half of the exterior as is and paint the bottom half as well as the canopy top a darker green in the same value range for contrast. Refer to the FGRV logo at the top of the page and see how the bush starts with a real light green and then progresses to stronger greens. Do not jump to a real dark green, one just a few shades darker than the lime green.

Leave the canvas as is, and do not paint over the vents, screens, outlets, etc, rather highlight them in white. Then do the same with the interior. Leave the furniture light green and accent the doors with a darker green, with a white around the edges.

Painting the outside with a paint scheme that is radically different from the interior will cause a visual shock to your eyeballs when you enter. The exterior and interior colors should coordinate with and compliment each other, not fight each other visually.

Scamper Jim - The interior is light yellow and brown but it will be gutted and redone this fall/winter. I will be replacing the canvas when I paint. What is there how was home made and does not fit. The new canvas and exterior paint will dictate the interior colors.

The program I use to create the paint scheme is a free program called paint.net.

Number 2 down.

Besides being an very appealing mix of colors, the bottom beige is a pretty good match for most dirt (less washing ).

What is your decor theme? Why red? e.g. are you "matching" school colors?
