HELP!!!! I am knitting a full double bed sized patchwork type bedspread, it is mainly rainbow colours (two shades of each) and quite bright, but it has a background colour; the border (quite wide) and also the edge of each square. I am stuck on colour for this, black seems obvious but I'm a little scared of the starkness of black..... Other colours I could use are grey or dark teal......... Votes/thoughts please..... I have another colour that I could use, called bone.... It's like a warm beige.....

I would go with the bone, as long as it goes with all your colors. Personally, I like cream or something close to it. If you think black is too stark, you won't like white either.

Black makes the colors pop.
My next choice would be grey
I would not do a beige or white or off-white

I personally think the colors are too heavy for a light color. Walk to that room and visualize it on the bed. What color is it? Black is such a good framing color.

I would stick with either a beautiful, rich, dark, grey or black. Those colors would make the other colors pop. White, beige or taupe might wash the colors out.

Either the grey or the bone would be excellent choices. I would lean toward the bone, as you have a lot of warm colours in the palette, and the cooler colours will really pop with a soft background. It will give you a warm overall feel. The grey will give you a cooler overall feel. Both will be great, it's really a personal choice of what you like best.

Black would make these colors pop like a stain glass window in the sun light. You could use any neutral color including taupe, gray, navy, white, et cetra and make it work, but why use any other colors then what you have here? You could make a patchwork looking afghan using entrelac stitch and it would look great.

The darker blue on the left of your pile shouted out to me as I tried to visualize your project. I think it would be perfect. IMO, black would be too stark and a white or beige would just not blend with all of the bright colors. Just an opinion!

I would go with one of the colours you are using in the blanket. At first glance my thought is iether the darker blue on the left or the yellow next to it. Of course I have not seen the pattern. I would pick the colour that you want to dominate out of all those colours.

If not black what about a dark navy?

Navy blue. Oops! Didn't see the previous post. We must have entered at the same moment.

I was thinking the same thing!!! The darker blue on the left for the border.

I would get a few of squares done and lay them on different colors including black to see what you like.

For a bedroom I see nothing wrong with white. Especially since all rainbow colors come from white light, you'll be teaching a lesson in physics!
