I've got a red-orange hall ceiling, a mustard accent wall, and a peacock bedroom. I've done maroon, salmon, lime, pink and metallic gold. I'm not afraid of color. However, sometimes colors should inspire caution, and I let it go to the wind in my bathroom. I painted it a lovely mint, but for this specific purpose, well, it's godawful:
I recently realized that if I look like anything other than death-warmed-over in this room then I'm wearing way too much blush for any other venue. The color is also particularly ill-conceived paired with the '90's beige tile in there. It needs something to draw less attention to it, rather than more:
So, this definitely needs fixing, but ... neutrals? I have no idea where I'm going with them. I like the idea, though. I'd like to paint this bathroom grey, but I'm having so much trouble with the shades.
However, the internet has come to my rescue yet again! Apartment Therapy has a great dialogue going about favorite shades of grey, and I've found color matches for most of the formulas suggested. I'd love feedback on them:
I'm currently leaning Sea Haze and French Grey.
I think the kitchen might be nice in a grey as well- a darker grey could really bring out the warm materials in there:
Do you have strong feelings about any of the ones above?
Other color suggestions?
Am I on the wrong track altogether?
as Piglet says, "Halp!"
