Maybe you could add a fourth color if that would help. Mine is black, green and tan. I can always find stuff in those colors. I have a lot of baskets. Could you spray paint some baskets?

How about some metal storage tins and small buckets with handles?

My scrap room is light lime and dark brown. I love the outdoors and took inspiration from an Ikea print of a wheat field that I bought a few years ago.

I have dark eggplant (purple) walls and zebra-stripe accents. There are some photos in my gallery.

I would think it would be easy to find black, silver and pink. What kinds of things are you looking for that you can't seem to find?
I would make or alter things to suit you and your colors.
Have fun!

Exactly what she said! Pink is a pretty common color.

For the pink part, there are many tools that come in pink.

As for the black check Walmart's office supply section, as well as their home decor section.

And for the silver (& also more black) check Target's office supply section. 2 aisles over from that, they usually have Paris, shoes, purses, Rome, architectural-type decorations & themes. Also, Bed, Bath & Beyond & IKEA are great places to find things that come in both silver & black (clocks, lamps, trashcans, etc.)

I scrap in a tiny room with one picture on the wall and a basement window, lol. But an entire themed room sounds awesome!

Yeah on the paint. My room is pink, black & gray. I just spray painted an big old picture frame black. I then covered some cork with black & white print fabric to make my own bulletin board. I think it turned out so pretty!

I wish I knew whose it was, but I saw photos of a pink/black/silver scrap room. She had decorated it in "French" style - a black Eiffel Tower painted on one wall, and had made adorable black/white "awnings" to hang over the windows. Someone here will recognize it, I'm sure, and direct you to her photos. It was adorable!

There are lots of silver and black office supplies in the office aisles at the stores. Also, I have seen lots of college accessories in hot pinks and other colors so you may find accessories in those aisles but I would hurry. I've even seen pillows, blankets, etc. so you could really hit the jackpot if you find the right color in those departments. HTH!

My scraproom is a mish mash of things and styles! I can't seem to pick one and stick with it! I collect Raggedy Ann stuff, so they're all over the room. I like shabby chic but don't have much in that decor. The things I really want won't fit in my room. Then I see pink and lime green accessories that I like, so I have some of that too! Good luck with your decorating. Show us some pics when you're done!

Thinking the same thing.....check out thrift stores and yard sales for stuff to repurpose. Like a mug tree with assorted mugs to horizontally store your markers, etc...Have Fun!

My walls are a light blue with clouds painted along the top of the walls. Everything else in the room is silver and white. I've been able to spray paint anything I couldn't find in my colors.

My room has cream walls, matches the rest of the basement. I hope to paint it some day. For now I have purple, silver, white, and black "accessories". I even spray painted my tabletop purple with Krylon plastic paint. I have "altered" or painted items to fit my colors. I would suggest altering what you have or what you find. "Armygirl" has many items in her room (see her gallery) that she has altered to fit her color scheme.
