Think pink for an inviting place to get ready each morning. "Perhaps one of my favorite warm paint colors is a hue that dances right between blush and nude," says Decorist designer Erika Dale. "This color is perfect for a bedroom, dressing room, or bathroom. There is a reason every Hollywood starlet is lit with soft pink light… it is so flattering!"
Over the past four years we have gotten to know the owners and employees at Ace as they helped us through having water in the basement and so many other issues. Each time we come in, they spoil the girls! We spend a lot of time buzzing around there getting supplies for our latest project or quick fix. They offer everything we need and more importantly, are so helpful when I wander in alone and have no idea what I need.
For bathrooms which are actually painted a color apart from beige or white, allow which wall color become the stage you work from to select the majority of the color pattern for the bathroom. Keep in mind that rugs, towels, bath curtains, photographs and some other accent pieces must often be a basic color, or maybe complement the color of the walls. For instance, in case you’ve a reddish accent wall within the bathroom, you will want the rugs of yours to be beige or black, or maybe a color that can fit the white, like a burnt orange. As a broad rule, there shouldn’t be much different in the bathroom which really matches the color of a daring painted wall.
You really can never have too much storage in the bathroom, which is one reason that I love this tall mirrored storage cabinet. Another reason is that it has such a lovely rustic look and it is super easy to build. You can do this with reclaimed wood if you have any on hand and it will look even more rustic. When you’re finished, you have multiple shelves for storing bathroom essentials and the front of the cabinet gives you a full length mirror!
Regardless of what color scheme you select for the bathroom of yours, you will also want to make sure that your hardware fight. While one does have some freedom in metallic finishes that work very well together (such being a brushed nickel along with a combed silver), keep in your mind that the kind of hardware needs to appear cohesive. A modern chrome faucet is going to look ridiculous in a bathroom that has a claw foot tub as well as bronze box hardware. Since bathrooms are typically as little, it is crucial that every part of the room functions together to write one unified space. Stay away from clutter with decor of course, if possible, choose the saying that less is much more when offering with bathrooms.

"A dark bathroom balanced with white is a great way to go. Hale Navy is one of my all-time favorite colors. It works perfectly with marble or white cabinetry. White is such a crucial color to consider in a bathroom because it always feels fresh and clean. The darker navy tone also works perfectly with the warmer metal trends like brass and copper."
This mirror is absolutely beautiful and I am very happy with it in my newly remodeled small bathroom. I'm only giving it four stars because the mounting brackets were not completely even (just slightly off) and my husband had to get out a level to figure out how to mount correctly which took a bit of time and effort. Other than that, it was packaged well, arrived with no damage and as I said, is beautiful!
Start and end your days in royal fashion with an eggplant-colored backdrop and faded lighting. Split the wall color with a lighter wainscotting, like this ash grey, to keep the room from feeling too dark. A white bathtub, sink and toilet give the room fresh elegance without disturbing the overall aura. To tie it all together, incorporate silver accents, such as this mirror and chandelier.

"I always start with the stone when designing a bathroom, and that begins to inform the color palette. Pale Oak partners well with most marbles, enhancing the vein in the marble, but equally works to soften a dark tile. Be careful, it can go gray or beige depending on the light. Personally I love that about it, but depending on the space, it can be tricky."
