Choosing Bathroom Colors From Nature

Posted by .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) on 09/07

Many of us spend hours laboring over paint color choices for our family rooms or kitchens. However, the most visited room in any home is the guest bathroom and the homeowner should strive to create a calm and relaxing atmosphere in this often tiny room. Paint choices are endless, but nature can inspire us when looking for colors. Consider a walk outside your home and notice the many hues of color. The deep greens, browns and golds associated with the coming fall season can create a beautiful bathroom setting. The darkened leaves, stones and pebbles or even a sunset should bring countless color possibilities to mind. These colors most likely translate to paint color names like “straw,” “buttercup” or “olive.”

The homeowner should consider several things when choosing from the green, brown or other “natural” color families. Skylights or windows give an outside source of light, which would allow for darker paint color choices. Rooms having no additional outside light source look more open with a lighter wall color. Guests do not want to feel “closed in” from the deep forest green or chocolate brown paint on your walls. If you would like to incorporate some darker colors, consider light colored walls and darker colored trim. 

Once you have painted the bathroom walls and trim in such colors as “oatmeal” or “avocado,” highlight your newly painted rooms with sprigs of greenery, plants, pebbles and even small fountains. You will be surprised at the calming effect these color and decorating choices will have on you and your guests.
