What color are your walls?

Wall color can really have an effect on the "feel" of a room and a gym. I noticed some pics earlier today of a gym with bright yellow walls. Ours came plain white. Has anyone painted their walls a new color? Why?
(post pics if you have them)

Yellow and Blue. Pix don't do it justice. Why so bright? I am in the place on average 50 hours a week, I don't want to look at plain walls, I know our clients don't. We do alot of kids programming and our walls are BRIGHT!

Light blue over dark blue. Makes room look clean and bright and more inviting to clientele. Check it out at:

The blue/white combo is very clean looking. That's primarily what I'm concerned with -- maintaining a strong appearance of cleanliness.

Yellow and grey/blue type color.

We went CrossFit website colors (blue and yellow) then some red on the lower walls and a red/ crossfit yellow stain for the floor.

Psycho Ward White, but I've been thinking about changing it.
