Bye Bye Basics: Adding Unusual Color in the Bathroom

While I love white in a bathroom, it is very tempting to take a plunge into color. For those of us who are color shy, the bathroom is a terrific place to get a little wild with color. But for renters (or those nervous about sabotaging the sale of their homes down the road), remember that you can infuse color into a bathroom through accents and accessories.FIRST ROW
1 Color doesn't have to be in the walls or tiling. A Spoon washbasin by Agape from Moss rests on a green onyx counter in the master bath of a Joe D'Urso-designed loft in New York; the molded-resin chair is by Gaetano Pesce from Moss, and the Love rug is by Robert Indiana. Elle Decor.
2 Bone Steel Trout Hall. A very fun and original use of colorful tile and vintage fixtures makes this bathroom stand out.
3 I love the colorful but subtle mosaic tiles in this bathroom from BHG.
4 Apart from a swath of bright paint on the wall, most of the color in this room from BHG comes from the accessories and towels, which can be easily switched up.
5 Lonny via Daily Crushes. Color through art and knick knacks.

SECOND ROW
6 Retro oranges and yellows in Krista & Zak's Philadelphia Art Hotel.
7 Color doesn't have to mean bright. Here green wallpaper adds a more subtle color to this bathroom from House to Home.
8 The best color in this English bathroom is around the edges. From Velvet & Linen.
9 In a remodel of a 1920s home, the tiles and fittings stay neutral while the walls go wonderfully orange. From Velvet & Linen.
10 Adding color doesn't have to be permanent. Play with color through your accessories and linens, as done in this bathroom from Domino via Desire to Inspire.

THIRD ROW
11 Brown is a color, too. Here it is less a neutral and more a statement. From Tenbosch House via Desire to Inspire.
12 Twig Hutchinson via Desire to Inspire. From the wallpaper to the wastebasket, lots of fun color here.
