I just painted my powder room (CIL Wilton Blue) but its not warm enough... looks like a hospital room :( looking for a warm blue-grey (but not dark!!)... any suggestions?

it looks like a mauve from here ,it looks fresh ,I think that when you get some towels and a few pictures it will all come together and if you still don't like it next year paint it again ,its only paint and a bit more work for you .

Here it is it looks fine to me

How about a cool neutral like "perfect greige" by Sherwin Williams its a mix of grey and beige" then you can have more options to change the colors of the towels, rugs, shower curtain etc.

Also check out this page, shows a lot of bathrooms in different colors with the paint names. Mega Greige is a bit darker than Perfect Greige http://involvingcolor.com/room-galleries/bathrooms/

I just had my powder room painted - Sherwin Williams Halycon Green - and I LOVE it! It is more blue gray than green but doesn't look like little boys nursery...I am seriously considering painting my master bath the same color...

Thanks for the advice.... I think I found one, a Sherwin Williams called Lunenburg (which is just one swatch over from the halycon green! ;) so I think I'm in the right ballpark!

Place a nice pattern wallpaper on the wall where the mirror is located to give this colour more eye appeal

Just make sure your wallpaper has your wall colour incorporated in it.

Did you put samples on wall before buying this one? Put a few then decide. Every room is gong to look different with lighting in your room. But I really don't think it's a bad color. Add accessories. It will look diffrend.
