Our new home is very builders' beige

kwf2012December 1, 2012
We have lovely knotty alder custom cabinets, white trim, maple floors and beige carpet, walls and brown tile. While it's neutral and soothing, I'd like to paint the baths (brown tile floors, beige counters and tiles, alder cabinets). I love aqua and Restoration HW Silver sage, but don't know that they look right. Do I go gray/green/cream? Thx!

How about some pictures. It helps. Aqua or Silver sage should look good, especially in a bath.

Agreed! Aqua is great for a bathroom, for my own I'm trying to decide between aqua or corral. Go for it!

yes. I will find a link for you to start.

here you go: http://www.houzz.com/photos/eclectic/bathroom/aqua.cream.-

you can do alternate searches this way using different color combos in the search box. first go to photos, then your room, then your style, then type in colors you'd like to combine. works well for ideabooks, and examples of how colors look together.

Enjoy your project. :=) would love to see a pic later.

Try drawing color inspiration from existing furniture. if you have any. Otherwise I agree with something bright and cheerful to contrast with all the beige you described.
