I finally finished painting the bathroom, for the third and LAST time. I decided that even if I hated the color it was staying, because there was not way that this bathroom was getting painted a fourth time (remember, we rent.) Luckily, I love it. It’s very clean and fresh feeling, which is what we were going for. The blue filtering through the white shower curtain is great and makes showering in a very relaxing experience. We went with two colors – a lighter blue above the chair rail (Benjamin Moore Ocean Breeze 2058-60 in Aura) and a darker one below (Pratt & Lambert Capri Grotto 25-7 in semi-gloss.) Our other option was two colors of turquoise, but T. liked this combo better and since I’ve made the vast majority of decorating decisions around here, I let him have this one. I’m not sure if the yellow towels are going to stay or be replaced (they’re really old and handed down from my mom, so it wouldn’t be completely frivolous to replace them.) but for now I actually kind of like the yellow with the blue. Art is the next step.
ps. the floor isn’t dirty – just really old and greyed. Any suggestions (scrubbing with bleach doesn’t help) to make it white again would be welcome.
Note: you may notice the color looks different in the top photo than it does in the bottom photo. The real color is somewhere in between these two.
