Right now, I'm sitting here fretting over what color to paint the bathroom. I'm kind of in the mood for dramatic and sexy. I figure it will help me dress a little better. If the bathroom is glamorous, then I'm going to need an outfit to match, right? Ha, we'll see. Ya'll can tell me later if it's working. ;)
Right, so I need to show you some of my inspiration, taken from my fave spots on the internet. First dream room isn't a bathroom, but I'm totally in love. Check it out:
Ahhh, isn't it fabulous? This is Farrow and Ball's Railings No. 31. It's a bit softer than true black, which brings a cozy feeling to the room. I love it mixed with the warm browns, which really add that cozy factor. All I want to do is dive into this photo and touch everything. Am I the only one who has to touch all of the pretty things I see in shops or on walls? I feel a bit like a kid, who should be getting my hand slapped for touching. I. Can't. Help. Myself.
This lovely color is Carter Grey by Benjamin Moore. Brown undertones make this grey look so silky and delicious! I think it has a little less punch than black, but it might be a good option for the hubs. Not sure how he feels about black.
The next color I'm coveting is called Waller Green by Benjamin Moore. I know I shouldn't covet, but that's how amazing this one is. It's from the Colonial Williamsburg collection of colors, all of which are inspired by, or were re-discovered in and on historic homes in Colonial Williamsburg. That's right. People actually used these colors way back when, and the process of re-discovering these colors is pretty cool. P.S. Carter Grey (above) is also part of this collection.
Anyway, after searching the internet for a beautiful photo of Waller Green, all I could really find was this:
Obviously, Waller Green isn't a super popular color - yet. I wonder, though, if this is just the right touch I'm looking for? It's different than black, it's a historic color, and it's not the same thing that everyone's doing. It's sexy, dramatic and, most of all, fun!
I guess I should consult the husband to make sure he's not totally against these colors. Cross your fingers he's on board. I'm going to go get some paint samples, and do some smooth talking this week...wish me luck!
As always, thanks for reading! Don't forget to come back next week to check out what's up in the bathroom!
