Thank you for all the paint help and suggestions!! I went with my gut and painted the bathroom walls nearly black Wrought Iron.
And I love it! We used extra deck stain on the corner post. Because it might get wet, we like that it’s outdoor grade, but colors the plain fir beam.
But back to the walls. I already preferred Wrought Iron over the Blue Sage and decided to go for it. Even when I painted the bedroom Blue Sage, I didn’t love the color. What I really wanted was a darker version of the old guest room.
Why use something I didn’t love? I debated getting a sample of the Sea Green (guest room color) at 200% tint. But I didn’t want the bedroom and bathroom to look like they should match, but didn’t. I’m happy I took the Wrought Iron risk, because our towels and accessories stand out against the black.
With a bright white ceiling, trim, lower wall planks, and plenty of light from the window, this room can handle dark.
The dark pops against the white trim and makes the marble shower more of a focal point. And after all that tile work, that makes me happy.
I’ve found white 96 inch curtain liners (just need to order), but I’m stuck on the outer, decorative curtains.
In my head, I picked out these Mallard Velvet Curtains from World Market. They’re not in stores, so I checked online. Hmm, not listed in their stock either. Booooo! The color is perfect and the velvet would look ultra luxurious, but also function on the windows.
Now I’m not sure what to use. While velvet might not hold up in a humid bathroom, the color and price were right. Back to the drawing board. The sconces are perfect, though.
Fingers crossed we can grout the floor and shower so we can get this bathroom almost completely functional. Then Ben can work on the American Walnut vanity.
If you’re on team Wrought Iron, what do you think? Any original team Blue Sage converts?
