Good Questions: Bathroom Wall Help?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Hello AT,

My apartment’s newly remodeled “modern” bathroom needs some help. The tub and floor tile is greyish-tan. I was thinking of doing dramatically dark walls and I’m unsure. Change the mirror? Any paint color or wallpaper ideas?

Thanks a bunch! CI

Dear CI,

We say go with your gut: try some dark colors on your walls so that the sinks and the counter top pop and the walls have more life. We’d experiment with dark neutral warm tones between the green of your sink, a warm grey that will tie in with the floors and tub or an aubergine that will bring out the color in your counter.

Anyone want to give CI a hand??
