Everytime I read the title of this post, I end up singing that theme song from the Titan Auto Insurance commericals, but instead of “Titan Up,” I sing “Liiighten Uuup.” And now you have that song stuck in your head, too. You’re welcome.
Anywho…I hope you all had a lovely weekend! I spent most of mine in the bathroom.
Wait, let me clarify…I spent most of the day Saturday working on our guest bathroom. Glad we got that cleared up
When I was trying to decide between two different color schemes for the guest bath, I mentioned that no matter which color scheme I chose, I wanted to paint the walls white.
For me, I think white is one of the scariest colors to paint a room. It means I have to be pretty spot on with how I accessorize the rest of the room because I don’t have a wall color to fall back on. Pressure, much?
I also had a really hard time finding the perfect paint color. I didn’t want an ultra-white, I was afraid it would look too stark. I also didn’t want a white with any yellow undertones because it’s a small room with no natural light, so things tend to look yellow-y anyway. So I was looking for a white that felt warm, but had more of a gray undertone. The winner?
Greek Villa by Sherwin Williams! It ended up being the perfect color to brighten up the room, but it still feels warm! See for yourself..
And yes, I intended to leave the bottom half of the main wall unpainted…it’s going to be getting a little beadboard treatment, whoop! I hope to be back with the next update for you on Wednesday or Thursday. Get pumped!!
By the way, are bathrooms the hardest rooms in the world to photograph or is it just me?!
