Need some help to update my bathroom

sylviajoanJanuary 26, 2013
Need some suggestions to update my bathroom. I can't remove the tub or change the flooring, but wondered on the wallpaper/paint to tie in the hunter green tiles around the whirlpool tub. Any thoughts appreciated. Thanks.

Here's how to find a paint color http://www.lindaholtinteriors.com/2011/07/testing-wall-color-101/

I'd match the wall paint to the floor / counter. From here that color looks liked a creamy-beige. White trim, blinds and cabinets as U have. White ceramic vase with plant on counter.

I would replace the 1'' blinds for Shutters it will look a lot more finished.

I would take down the wall paper and remove the tile. I would use marble to replace it and the floor. You can also order new shower doors with silver or brushed nickel at home depot or Lowes.. New brushed nickel light fixtures.
Marble is timeless and should not go out of style. Sometimes tile depts have names of people who can do installation.

I would invest in re glazing the hunter green tiles first with http://www.miraclemethod.com/
Sounds like you need to keep that. Then you have an open slate on a new color scheme.

Hi sylviajoan!
What is the inside of the shower like? If you're open to changing it, the shower would be a great place to try and bring the dark green tiles around the tub into the decor of the rest of the room! I've attached some images of mosaics from our website that could incorporate the green of the other tiles. With these mosaics, I think a light grayish blue with green undertones would be a beautiful color for the walls! (Benjamin Moore Dusky Blue). Hope this gives you some ideas!
