Paint color and accessories suggestions? Need to liven up my powder room!
Hi, I painted my powder room yellow when I first moved in. Working on painting the whole house, and this room need a fresh coat. After living with it for some time, I decided I don't really like the color, but I can't pinpoint why. I like the yellow - maybe this yellow is just the wrong one? It's Behr Saffron Sands. I love my accessories- the green towel and rug, brown mirror and pictures (will post those pics this evening), but something about the color I just don't like. When I use the powder room I feel like i am in a circus and I feel confined, and want to hurry up and get out! Is it because as paint novice's we painted the ceiling in yellow as well?
I want the opposite feel for my powder room - warm, inviting, rich-looking. I want that WOW factor. I also want my browns and greens to pop. The powder room is an important room in the house to me - it gets used so often, and it's one of the first things people notice when they ask to use the restroom LOL.
After research here are my thoughts:
1) paint a lighter yellow stripe around the room at above eye level to break up the monotony of the color.
2) paint it a bright sunny yellow - BM copacabana, counting stars
3) paint it a warm gold - like Benjamin Moore Ochre, re-paint the ceiling white or ivory and paint the trim in the same color.
4) paint it some other color
