I'm in the midst of picking a paint color and accents for our guest bathroom, and it's become a bit of a stressful endeavor. Seems my creative juices are spent on this house. We renovated this bathroom, and at the moment, it's a lovely white box with lots of white tile, white wainscoting and white walls...and I can't seem to pick what I want to do with it.
In searching for inspiration, I came across this picture - Ina Garten's NYC master bath - and I love it. Although my initial thought was to do something nutty in the bathroom (like paint the walls a dark, glossy navy blue), my thoughts have recently turned to something more neutral. I adore the light pink hue on these walls, coupled with what looks like a brass mirror.
And the setup is very similar to our own - we have a similar pedestal sink with the same faucet fixtures and wainscoting (albeit not marble wainscoting). I just picked up some fabric for a shower curtain that I think would work beautifully with pinkish walls and some brass accents...in this picture, the effect is a very elegant, warm bathroom. I like that.
Now, do we think Carter will let me paint it pink??
