Bathroom Paint Colour

I am trying to decide what colour to paint my bathroom. I know I want something bold, but I am still waffling on what route to exactly go. I think I am leaning towards a deep turquoise. The condo is all so light and airy, so I feel like the bathroom is a good place to add some personality and shock factor.

I decided to bust out the old photoshop software to see if I could envision this colour in my tiny place.

Please excuse my poor photoshopping; It's not like a took a course in this or anything *coughcough*

So what do you think about bold turquoise? Any other ideas? I already have navy and grey in the condo so I don't want that and I think I am really feeling a jewel tone in here.

For funsies, I also did a purple colour.

And then I went ahead and did plum and pink :)


For the record, I am pretty sure hot pink will clash with my beige tile, but a girl can dream, right?

  1. I think in this space, because it's already small + doesn't have windows(natural light) that you'll be able to do pretty much any deeper hue you want. My question is: do you plan on revamping all your bathroom accessories too (towels, shower curtain etc)? If not, I'd go with something that can coordinate with what you have — if you are revamping then you've got all kinda of free reign.

    I really like the dark teal/turq but I am biased ;)

  4. I'm liking the idea of a teal-ish jeweltone. Emily at Merrypad briefly talked about painting her last living room teal in this post and this post.

    Maybe something like a cross between your 2nd & 3rd inspiration pics and your 1st Photoshopped pic?

    2. Oh my gosh, they're $6 there?! That sucks! I think they're $2.98 here.

  5. I think you should go a bit more blue and a bit more dark on the turquoise (I hate typing that damn word)

    1. ya it was more turquoise at home...on my mac now it looks green. yuck. haha
      and I couldnt figure out how to make it darker. I was doing a layover with a solid colour that I changed to overlay. Otherwise it looked like MS paint!
