Paint color for bathroom?

I would like to repaint my master bathroom. The tiles are a beige/cream color. The cabinets and counters are white.

A slightly darker brown would be one option.

Go bold! I'd love to see you replace the counter with something more stylish and durable and also paint the cabinetry something that makes it look like a furniture item instead of a simple bank of cabinets. Perhaps deeper in tone with accenting the trim of the cabinet in a different accent color or even a worn metallic paint. Such as the photos attached. You can find great deals on lighting, under mount sinks as well as a pair of new bathroom faucets. This would make your bathroom far more special and won't cost you a tremendous amount of $$. ~ enjoy!

That's a great idea! Do you have any contemporary photos you can show me?

That's a good idea too. Right now my bedroom is a blank slate!

Your tile is more Mediterranean in style.. What is your bedroom furniture and bedding fabrics like?

I am getting a new bed and bedding. I like contemporary style. I just bought this house and haven't moved in yet. I can't change the tiles right now but I can certainly paint the walls and cabinet.

How about a soothing color like a pale blue? Would look good with cream colors and white.

I was thinking of blue but wasn't sure it works with the tiles.

I would find your bedding first. Then design your bathroom to compliment your bedroom rather than the other way around. Once you select your fabrics you can find the correct paint color and hue value to coordinate. Nothing will look together until you do this.

We were hoping to paint before we moved in. I understand what you're saying though. It makes sense.
Thanks!

Also... another tip.. If your floors are bare in your bedroom always select your area rug prior to selecting fabrics. It's far easier to coordinate fabrics to a rug than the rug to fabrics especially when it's a room where moving a bed around to lay rugs to try out is a hassle. I know it sounds complicated but it's all part of the design and layering process. You already have your furniture as a style direction launch point. Next, find a rug you love first, then your fabrics then your paint and accessories ... from the ground up. Enjoy!
