We've been having a bit of a paint renaissance here. It started in the bedroom, where Builder Beige got upgraded to Driftwood Grey. From there, I could hear the master bathroom calling my name. I have to be honest though, picking a new color threw me for a loop.
Here's the problem: Our apartment has some strong Italian themes, with tumbled marble in colors of the Amalfi coast to lighting that looks like either Mario Batalli or the Pope could have designed them. So I feel like I need wall paint that screams "Pasta!" or "Gondola!"And green or purple or gold would have worked really easily in the bathroom, except I couldn't find one of those that I liked. Not. One.
So I twiddled my thumbs for weeks. Then one day, the pre-hubs and I were itching for a project, so we spontaneously went to Lowe's and decided to just grab a color. Now this is when things got really crazy. We brought Sawyer with us, so my husband-to-be volunteered to stay in the car and let me pick the paint. "I trust you," he said.
At that point, my ego swelled and I decided to go with my heart. And my heart always beats blue--or at least toward the cooler colors. Our fate was settled before the search really began. My logic was that a bright blue would be great, because so much of the room is a cream tile, and that even if we went daaark, there'd be plenty of light. Seems sound, no?
So here's how the transformation went:
