Random thoughts and photos as I develop my photography business (Saddleback Hills Photography) in hopes of an early retirement. Wish me luck.

Can I please get your opinion?
Paint is on sale this week so I trying to decide what color I want to paint the office and dressing room in the studio. In the pictures below you will see the countertop I have bought to make a desk with the cabinetry/file cabinets below in black. The clock for the wall is also pictured. I have purchased the ceiling hanging light fixture which has a brushed nickle finish as does the door hardware. There will be 2 windows and a full glass door in the office. Whichever color I choose for the walls, I will go the same color in a lighter shade for the ceiling (12 ft). I plan to paint the studio walls and ceiling in pure white. The floors will all be a medium oak laminated wood.
Now I would like your input, which wall color would you pick to go with the desk and accessories? I have narrowed it down to basically 2 colors in 3 shades each. Please help me choose.
A little about me – I’m a 59 year old grandmother with 9 grandchildren living in rural North Central Indiana. I have many interests, Photography, Woodworking, Traveling, Oil Painting, Sewing, Gardening and more. Too many interests and not enough time (or money) to pursue.
My passion is the Photography, after developing an interest as a child (thanks Dad) I took Grand Champion in Photography at the county fair at 13, so I at least knew I had a little promise. For most of my adult life, my photography was on the back burner with raising a family and life in general getting in the way.
With my passion being renewed of late, in 2008 I got my first dSLR and I have been a “picture taking fool” ever since. I’ve done a couple of weddings now, am dabbling in portraits and love taking pictures of nature, animals and landscapes.
We started construction on a post frame building in the spring of 2009 which will house a 3 car garage and my studio. I can’t wait. It has been a long process but the studio is almost done and is currently usable.
Please feel free to comment on any of the pictures I post.
Here is a list of the equipment I have available for use. My current favorite lens is the 24 mm wide angle lens.
