I can't believe it's been almost a year since I've posted. I've been so busy with my real job that I haven't had the inspiration to blog. I always have a lot of ideas floating around in my head, but I just can't seem to get them out of my head.
So, I've been thinking about redecorating my master bathroom. Believe it or not, I have painted my bathroom twice since I've been in this house for almost 8 years (October 21, 2013). The original color started out as SW Latte--in the taupe family. You all know how I feel about taupe. Don't get me wrong, taupe is a great neutral, but for me everything looks so bland with this color. A few years ago, I saw a stripe painting technique on the HGTV's Rate My Space. I painted horizontal stripes using three colors from my color chart. There was a white space in between each color. All three colors were in the taupe family--from lighter to darker. I lived with this for about a year. Then I decided to paint over the stripes with a darker color on the color chart--SW 6110 Steady Brown.
Steady Brown is a rich, dark brown. I like darker colors because artwork looks best against a darker color.
A friend of mine built a new home about three years ago. Her master bathroom is painted baby blue with stark white painted trim work. I love this look--it's very beachy. Her bathroom inspired me to step outside the taupe family of colors.
I have a few colors in mind for my bathroom and none of the colors are in the taupe family. Here's a sneak preview of what I'm looking at:
I've already purchased the artwork that is going to hang on my bathroom walls:
