Last week, we painted our smallest bathroom a color called "cold steel". In the store, it was gray as gray gets. It was perfect under the incandescent/fluorescent/daylight lights they have in-store and we were sold on it. When we started painting, I couldn't get over how blue it was turning out. It's so odd because even in our living room, the color is still very gray and not blue at all. But in the bathroom...let's just say, lesson learned. Always bring the paint sample home first before you give in to impulse. Don't get me wrong, I really do adore the color and the bathroom needed something to both lighten and spruce it up a bit. I'm just left a little perplexed for color schemes and disappointed I don't get to have my gray and yellow bathroom. Alas...
But thanks to Pinterest, inspiration is endless. Case in point ::
In the room, we have a yellow shower curtain (hence my gray + yellow aspirations) and there is beautiful white trim. So to really give it a punch of color, I think accessorizing with red is a perfect fit.
Now I just need to purchase something vibrant to hang on the walls in there. Because we own practically zero red things to accessorize with!
And for some extra oomph, not necessarily in the bathroom but just around the house ::
And just because, here is an outfit in this palette that has my heart ::
I'm feeling inspired...are you? Are you a fan of this palette?
