Everytime I don’t take a ‘before’ picture and then I finish decorating the room and it looks this cute I regret it! I am working on decorating a town house for the owner of reVISION Custom Home Renovations (pictures to follow, we are still waiting for some furniture to arrive). I did finish the powder room the other day so I thought I’d show you how it turned out!
He’s renting the place so we left the colour as is–it really made the room look beige-on-beige though–see how the colour doesn’t quite work with the countertop (it’s got more purple in it and the wall colour is more green), so I decided the only way to take the attention away from the colour not being perfect (and to make up for the fact that we were not painting it a strong colour)was to add a punch of colour with the art and accessories!
The colour was not from Benjamin Moore (and that’s the only deck I had with me) but it was very close to cc-490 Smoky Taupe, except a bit more green. By the way one of my colleagues at Benjamin Moore used to say “If all else fails and you don’t know what to do, use Smoky Taupe it always looks good”, and it is a colour I specify a lot (not for that reason, I use it if I know it’s going to work, but in general it is a good go-to colour), it’s a nice warm gray/taupe that looks great in contemporary spaces.
Isn’t it cute now? I especially loved the little boat and coloured balls I found from Pier 1.
Have a great weekend everyone!
