Bathrooms weren't traditionally very colorful spaces; historically, they didn't tend to draw much attention in the décor/color scheming way. If your bathroom is a traditional style, you might enjoy keeping the color scheme pretty neutral – creams and whites. The look is not only fresh, but it's light and bright as well. Glossy red wall tiles and red bath mats are a cheerful and bright way to add spunk to an otherwise white bathroom. The color scheme is hospital-esque, likely because it emits a clean and germ-free aesthetic. It's a hot color right now, and for good reason. Amaranth is not pink, it's not red, but it's a beautiful, rich cross between the two that is neither too frilly nor too masculine. We love the unexpected coordinating shower curtain and cabinet doors here. Fresh and unfailingly cheerful, mint and white make a lovely color scheme, particularly in tiny bathrooms where every square inch matters. An encompassing small-scale wallpaper print in the color scheme break up the solidarity of the walls and make the space feel larger. And flanking silver and white sconces add to the fresh appeal.
The final selection of your bathroom's color palette will depend not just on the color of your tub or the tone of your tile, but also on the overall look you want to achieve. A bathroom that incorporates white marble, white porcelain and pale wood will have an entirely different look with soft green walls than with walls of metallic blue. Ask yourself: Do I want my bathroom to be relaxing or energizing? Trendy or timeless? Whatever mood you're after, the process of choosing a color will feel less overwhelming if you take it step by step. "First," says Joan Osburn, of Osburn Design in San Francisco, "pick all the colors that you like, no holds barred. Then narrow them down to two or three options. Look at them in different lights and at different times of day.
He recommends haunting estate and garage sales for bathroom art. "That's where you find that weird art like those little oils Aunt Martha painted. Think, 'Oh my gosh, there's a clown with a knife in his hand! Let's buy that and put it in the bathroom.' It's nice to see something to make you giggle in the morning." Of course, even the zaniest art should have at least one element that picks up other colors in the room, says LaDonna. And what should those colors be? Often, you're limited by the hard-and-fast items in the room, like the '60s style pastel tiles, says LaDonna. "When you add other colors, they'll have to complement, but the right selection can update the design and downplay the colors you don't like." Today's popular chocolate-brown accessories, from towel racks to curtains, for example, give old-style pastels a fresh look, says LaDonna.
