Home DecorBathroom Color Options February 12, 2016 Going with a very neutral base in our master bath was very different than my original plan, as y’all know. While it’ll be in smaller ways than I first thought, I’m excited to add color into this room in small details and accessories. I’ve considered a lot of different color combinations and there are so many ways I could go. I knew a colorful rug was my first step. I really wanted a long runner that would span the space in front of the tub and vanities, but I have two shorter runners already. Both of these that you’ll see in my options below are big enough to go in front of the tub only, but I think I may try that for awhile and see if I can use what I’ve got…at least for now. Here are the four color options I’m considering right now. Remember, we’re talking about colors for the mirrors and barn lights. Once those main elements are decided, I’ll bring more color in through other elements as well. These first two are with my red overdyed persian that you guys have seen pop up in many spaces over the years. I got it from eBay two years or so ago. In Option 1, I would pull the blue out of the rug, but go lighter than the royal it appears. I’d go dusty blue on the barn lights and a very pale baby blue on the mirrors. I’m thinking I’d distress the mirrors and do the lights glossy. I love monochromatic looks like this where different shades of one color are paired together. In Option 2, I’ve gone with a neutral light. I’d do the base of the barn lights brass and the “shade” part a glossy black. I think this would be a really pretty way to finish these lights. Then, I’d pull the pinky peach out of the rug with a very, very pale blush mirror. Think ballet pink or a “barely there” shade. My husband would hate this, I know. I would definitely go as light as possible, almost to where it looked neutral but just had a hint of blush. I realized I liked both of these same color options above with the other rug as well, so here those are as Options 3 and 4. I found this rug for $15 on the Longest Yard Sale. I initially bought it for Rosie’s room when I was pregnant, but as that room took shape, it ended up not working. I really thought that after I sat down and put this together I would have a clear favorite, but I don’t! I like something about each one of these. I think that the different rugs would give the room a very different feel. I think I’m going to lay both of them out in the room and try to decide that way. One thing I do love about both of these color options is if I ended up wanting a longer runner down the road, I know that I could find one that went with these basic color from what I’ve seen. Of course, I could always re-paint, but minimizing work down the road is nice. I’d love to hear your thoughts or if you have any other suggestions! I’ve considered shades of olive green, hunter green, and plum as well. And they may still make an appearance! I have other ways I’m going to bring color into this room for sure. These are just the main focal point. What’s your vote, friends?
