I need help with my wall color in my bathroom
Rebecca Redo
February 25, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I need help with the wall color in my masterbathroom . I really want to stay away from tan. I love color! The problem is the tile is very warm brown beige and the accent tile around the tub has a lot of grey in it ? Help?

From this angle it looks as if that blue to the extreme right of the image is picking up the blues in the grey tile but it is warm enough to work with your beige tile.
It is a still a strong colour and seems to have enough desaturation in it to reflect the grey in your tiles

I think you are on the right track with something in the blue/grey family. I'm trying to attach a picture for you...

I love color as well but sometimes it isnt always best to put a bold color on your wall. Instead do a neutral, it will REALLY tie everything together and provide cohesion and then add your color in towels and art work. That also gives you the option of changing colors when you want without having to repaint the entire room. In the second picture there is a greyish paint swatch closest to the window that really lets your tile work shine. That is the color I would choose for the walls and then add your pops of other color in everything else. Good luck!

The lighting in these two pictures make this look like two different rooms. I agree with A. Peltier Interiors to go neutral on the walls and bring color in the accessories.

One picture is the windows closed the other is day time open windows . The pics were taken a couple weeks apart as you can tell since the first pic I've tried alot more of the grey blues samples on the wall. Iam not completely against using a neutral. We bought our house six months ago and every room is tan or beige it looks like concealer is every where . The women who owned the house before was not into color. I just want to give my bathroom some character.

I see you tried a cranberry red - why did you give up? This could be stunning.

I don't know why I gave up on red so soon. Red color pallet suggestions ? Would I have to change my brushed nickel fixtures?

The crazy things is ! I do hair for a living . I work with the color wheel all the time. I think the variation between warm and cool on the decorative tile is throwing me for a loop.

Try Benjamin Moore, Patriotic White # 2135-70 or Whispering Spring #2136-70 both are very soft blue grays. This is a soothing pallet and will look good with the brown without bringing out the orange undertones. I think what you didn't like before is that the colors are so intense and as you say the rest of your house is beige, so when you get to the bathroom, you are startled by the depth of color. Paint over the colors you don't like giving yourself a fresh pallet using a neutral white like decorator's white from BenMoore, and put up the colors you have liked best, the burgundy, the deep tan, and one of the blues I suggested which are not as dark as those on your wall and see how they make you feel. Do not put them next to each other, spread them out and look at them at different times of day in different light.

I used a color called Weathered Oak by Valspar in my living/dining room that's kind of a taupe/gray that I think would work nice in here....

Hi Rebecca. If you love color & are thinking about adding a lot of it to your home, it might be worth it to hire a color consultant. Sometimes we get bogged down when it comes to our own homes. I know I do!

I think seafoam blue/gray family will look great with espresso cabinets and beadboard.

I just painted my bathroom with similar tiles. I was ultimately looking for a color as well but ended up doing Shaker Beiger and I am so happy I did. It really warms up the room and I plan to add color with the accessories. To my eye, nothing looked good with the brown tiles.

I agree with you toomanywhitewalls. I don't think the colors above do anything for the tile. Try BM Revere Pewter. (I should get a % for every gallon I push!) Love this color. Type it in on this site and see all the rooms painted with it.

I would go a warm richer color on the walls (similar to the patch you already painted in the middle). However I think it needs to have some underlaying gold tones in the color (see visualizer photo attach). Then add white to balance it all out. I have attached a photo of a modern bathroom with similar floor tiles to yours and the paint color looks great. White shutters would finish off the look.

I had similar color stone in a house I just moved from. I used Restoration Hardware Latte. It was neutral but still an actual color. I also had white woodwork in the room and it really made it pop! Good luck :)

In my opinoin the bathroom is the perfect place to have fun with color. Go with the red/orange suggestions. Adding beadboard may get to busy in the space however.

I have the same color scheme as you and chose a dark seal brown....boy was that a mistake. The room felt very cramped and dark. I (my husband) ended up re-painting a dolphin gray (light) instead and it looks wonderful. I should have just left the light beige we had in the first place, but the gray really brightens it up in my opinion.
