Sooooooo. Supposedly, the roof will be put on our house starting today, which means that drywall goes up soon, which means it’s time to choose paint colors. For real.
In the bedroom, my current thoughts are to paint each wall in a very subtle tone. One will be the same lovely warm white as the rest of the house, one an extremely subtle taupe, one an only slightly less subtle taupe, and the fourth a subtle pink… possibly the same Paris Pink that our bedroom is right now.
With that in mind… we have two bathroom wall color possibilities. Please keep in mind that Sparks swears up and down he is NOT going to use this bathroom. He apparently believes that separate bathrooms make a happy marriage.
This pink is actually redder, in real life. It’s almost a watermelon color. It’s warm and vibrant; much less the flat bubblegum that’s showing up on my monitor, here. I think it provides a lovely contrast with both the dark wood and the bright-white porcelain. I heart it. It does, however, lock me into having a pink bathroom. Painting over it in another color would require primer.
This is a lovely multifaceted brownish-taupe. It also harmonizes well with the wood and the porcelain. The advantages of it are that it is sophisticated and it would allow me to swap out different colored towels and knickknacks whenever I wanted. The disadvantage is that it is safe and boring, and means that there will be no less than THREE brown rooms in the house. Four, if you count the taupe walls in the master bedroom. That seems kinda blah and boring.
