In a previous post, I showed the inspiration for the vibe I was going for in the boys' bathroom. If you recall, I was finding this bathroom to be a bit sterile and lacking in swagger.Still, I had to screw up the courage to actually go with the stated plan. You see, I sometimes play it too safe with my color choices. Maybe it's because I live in sunny California, and I think everything should be all bright and airy and serene. Recently though, I am finding inspiration in more dramatic interiors, in fact the last two rooms I have painted (here and here) have both been dark.
This color -Benjamin Moore's Gunmetal, is only half of the story. I still plan to paint the ceiling blue. Not sure if it will be very pale robin's egg or something verging toward Tiffany blue -which could be really tacky, so we'll see.
