We are slowly but surely getting there with this guest bathroom. It’s transformation is nearly complete!
I have to say that I was pretty excited when the fresh paint went onto those newly smooth walls! This bathroom has been really tricky in terms of getting the color right. In the very initial stages, I thought about going for a deep, intense, and mysterious blue. I tried it, and then promptly began hating it. It didn’t feel “clean” enough for me for a bathroom. Then I swung too far over to the other side of the spectrum, trying Creamy White on the walls–and while it’s lovely, it just proved to be slightly too anemic-looking for this room and too yellow, given the white and black tile on the floor in the bathroom.
I *think* I’ve come up with the answer. Are you ready for it? I chose Benjamin Moore Alaskan Skies (972) for the walls and Benjamin Moore Dune White (968) for the beadboard and trim. And I think I’m in love…
I added some details that I hope will make the guest bath experience a little more special:
Good lighting is key, I think, to bathroom happiness:
I say hurray for progress!
