On the "barrier" -- do you think 6" of pure flat black paint all around the screen (between it and the trim) will be sufficient? Or is velvet the preferred method?

Mpj,

It is very hard to get the display to be perfect projection onto the exact dimensions of the white screen. You will want to bleed over slightly onto the border. That's why the velvet is used so you don't see it and it blocks light reflection well.

It's always a good idea to learn a little bit of the philosophy behind how colors work with each other and why before choosing colors for anything. We might know that we like two colors together, but knowing why we like those colors together will make things make much more sense.

And here's a great article specifically about choosing paint with a color wheel.

For me i'll prepare a dark color for both the walls and the ceiling. Colors such as grey, dark brown, burgundy, or black are good choices. Anything that is dark will cut down on light from the TV or projector bouncing around.
