Color Combo Inspiration: Vintage Tea Sets

Pin it button big

It's been a solid six months and we're still undecided about what color to paint our bathroom. For awhile, a rich sky blue with white trim was in the works, but now we're not so sure. Since the bathroom still has a lot of '70s details from when it was last remodeled; maybe it's better to stick to a color palette that is rooted in that era, but updating it by changing one of the accent colors...? To get inspired, we perused Flickr and found an awesome collection of photographs by H is for Home of vintage tea sets flaunting some color combinations we hadn't even considered. Take a look at our favorites after the jump...

Pink and taupe-y, muted gold. We're not huge fans of the gold (it's sort of borderline avocado...), so we'd probably update it with either a richer brown tone or a lighter beige color.
