Our house was built in 1965 and, at the time, it seems that lavender bathtubs were in fashion. I've got a lavender tub in my bathroom, white tile that goes half way up the wall and is bordered by lavender tile and some really ugly dark brown cabinets. I would love to rip the whole thing out and completely redecorate, but that's not in the cards (or the budget) right now. What I can do is paint. I've found some great tips and wonderful inspiration on the Internet for redecorating bathrooms. Here's what I've learned:
- If you're stuck with an outdated color for major bathroom fixtures, work the color into the new color scheme, making it seem as if the original color was an intended part of the decor.
- Follow the 60, 30, 10 rule of decorating. Choose your main color (in this case, mine is chosen for me - lavender). This is 60% of the color scheme. The secondary color is 30% of the color scheme. And the final color, the 10%, is the accent color. My accent color is going to be green, so I think my secondary color is going to be white.
