Pale Sunshine

Pale sunshine is a descriptive term for a soft yellow, an almost cream shade. Pale sunshine is a cheery colour that is designed to be refreshing without being overpowering like an intense sunny yellow. Imagine, walking into the warm glow of a sunrise or a sunset everytime you had a bath. You’re relaxing already aren’t you? This is a colour that helps you to wake up in the morning and calm down in the evening. In addition to assisting with elevated moods in the dreary winter months, this colour melds really well with most pre-existing bathroom décor- even those awfully coloured bath tubs from the 60s – mine’s avocado.

Aqua Marine

We’re not talking “deep sea diver blue” as that can be a little intense. Aqua marine is a pale turquoise, and it presents more of a seaside feel than a down-to-earth vibe. The cool thing about painting the bathroom in a light turquoise colour is that there are so many bathroom décor items that mesh well with this colour, simply because ocean themes are so common for bathrooms. Add some seashells, a few of your favourite ocean photos framed in wood, and voila. White goes exceptionally well with aqua marine painted walls, so almost any accessory would match and these are easy to find used.

Black & White

Initially, black and white may seem boring and probably passé, next I’ll be telling to put an image of Pierrot on your wall. But, when you are considering bathroom fashion, black and white may be the most sensible colour scheme available on the market. Why? Toilets in house rentals are most often white. Bathtubs in house rentals are most often white. Search around for a black and white shower curtain, toothbrush holder, and bathmat and you are nearly done decorating.

Choosing the right paint colour for a bathroom can make or break the environment of the room. Try to choose a colour that will work well with the furnishings you already possess, and keep your budget down by searching for used items whenever you can.

I most like the black and white color for bathrooom for classic and amazing look. Cream shade color is also a good for bathroom decoration but black and white is much better for extra ordinary look.

    I love painted brick. Myself I prefer plain white, but if the brick is around a feature in the kitchen let’s say, I like the idea of painting white but then paint a series of bricks a few different colours. You could do a simple pattern in various pastel shades. Here’s a link I found all about painted brick; Amber
