Red could be bad, but they did this so well.
Red works only in very specific, modern situations. I don't think it works here because the tile is too "earthy." On the other hand, this would look bangin' with white tile or glass mosaics.
Yeah, I'm not a big fan of this travertine business in really any context, but with some white (or even white peppered with a lime or glossy navy) tile this could be truly phenomenal. Going big with the color in the bathroom is pretty awesome - if you need a neutral colored room to put your makeup on in, go do it somewhere else!
Not with those tiles...
i agree, it clashes with the tiles, but everything else looks great.though why would you want to be excitable in a bathroom?
I don't really mind the red color, but it clashes with the travertine. It's like two people speaking to each other in different languages.
looks awesome, but I used to have a red bathroom and even though the lighting was good, it made it very hard to shave my legs
smoking hot!the post credits the image as from HGTV. It's probably just a display room, then. totally love that look, though.
I have seen awesome bathrooms in bright bold red, but this is not one of them. Not.
i love it. but my bathroom is screaming green.
I'm totally stressed out and claustrophobic after looking at it for 5 seconds.
Hee-hee. My wife and I are in the process of fixing up our master bathroom. She really wanted to paint it a reddish-orange coral color (not at all dissimilar from the color in the picture), and she bought the paint before I had time to say "boo." (Not that I would have objected--it's fun and relatively easy to experiment with paint colors.)Our bathroom is only 2 years old and has creamy marble, creamy tile and honey-ish cabinets. When she finished the painting last Friday, we were both ... aghast is the only word for it. With the bright vanity lights and the lack of windows/natrual light, the room glowed like 3-Mile Island. Everything that wasn't painted had a purulent reddish reflective glow on it. It hurt the eyes, and I LIKE strong color. It was like living inside Home Depot -- not Home Depot the store, but Home Depot the platonic form/concept of aprons and orange.We quickly switched to a soothing and mod light blue-green. Unfortunately, it will take us quite some time eradicate every last bit of the red/orange. That's the problem with experimenting with a really BOLD color. I'm going to have to re-caulk many places just to cover it up.So, long story short, I voted "NOT."
Stunning!And I love the contrast with the travertine!(maybe it's time to repaint my bathroom)
Gawd, I want that color somewhere in my place. My god, do I ever want it (I love red). What is the color?
I voted "no" but not because it's too bold. I just think that particular shade of red screams "Cheap Chinatown accessories!" rather than "Smokin' red steaminess".Red is a great color. I love splashes of it everywhere. But it has to have enough blue/purple undertone in order to avoid that Ronald MacDonald look.
I used to think the idea of a bold red bathroom was magnificent, too. Then I got one. My husband painted it fire-engine red, and the sight of it every morning fills me with inexplainable rage. Beware!
I'm about to move into a house in which someone exceptionally cheery decided to paint the bathroom red, bedrooms orange, and halls, living room and kitchen yellow. It's like living in the first half of the rainbow.The bathroom tiles are almost identical to the trav in this photo...so as Borat says, "NOT!"
I don't mind it so much, even with the travertine. The chrome pedestal and dark lampshade rug help pull it together. But that said, I'm not sure this would be a good thing to wake up to every morning...
I love red, but this red is too orange for me. So no.
I painted a smallish interior bathroom bright orange - a fantastic color. However, as someone stated above, everything reflected orange, including the tone of one's skin in the mirror and it was horrible. I like the red in this picture but in real life it might not work so well...
i love red, but this is too orange -- i am totally with pyewacket on this one...plus, i would never do an entire bathroom in red -- just a wall of glass tiles in red (posted somewhere else on AT this week) -- too much red in a bathroom becomes evocative
