Old Bathroom Tiles - What color Paint & shower curtain would go with my color bathroom? It is not quite as dark as the apricot w/ Black, but more like a pale Peach w/ Black. I would submit a picture but I don't know how. Thx.

If you go to a paint store & get paint chips that are close to the tile color, you can then put that chip up against others to see which combination you like together. Your tile is the peachy/pink or the green photo?

Raymondoy, try clay squared.com, look under online shopping for mid century tile. This is b&w's tile and you can buy samples.

That was really helpful information. My wife and I are getting ready to remodel our bathroom, so we have been trying to find out all of the ideas that we can. I love the color of the tiles in the back, and I think that the black and green contrast looks so great. I'll have to keep this photo in mind. http://kavinconstructioninc.com/

What is the best wallpaper to go with these green tiles and what accent colours could I use for shower curtain - Our home is about 60 years old and these green tiles are in our main bathroom minus the black stripes,mine are all green. I just don't know what colours to add to make it look nice as my husband says he's not taking on that project! Thank you so much for your time.

I think they used a cool khaki color (paint on the walls) to go with the tiles on Parenthood (not pink).

We finally went with Behr "Dolphin Fin" gray for the wall colour and new countertop in white with small spots of gray and beige on it and painted out the vanity a dark gray. Looks alot better than it did!

We have a couple of suggestion to
update your bathroom without changing the tile. You can try adding décor or
painting accents with a saturated complementary color such as a coral or a
mustard yellow. Additionally, you can select hardware for your sinks, cabinet pulls,
shower/bath in a silver tone such as chrome or nickel. Lastly, you can try
updating your light fixtures with period-influenced pieces, such as those available
from Rejuvenation.com.

Caulking the back edge of pedestal sink near wall? - Is it common practice to caulk the back edge of the sink to the wall? Our new pedestal sink was just installed, but I found the caulking at the back edge of the sink to look a little funny and not quite right because the caulking extends over the side and not just the top. Our walls are not tiled like the photo, just painted. It's an issue because I'm concerned about mold creeping under the silicon. The plumbers explained that it needs to be caulked in order to for it to be up to code. Thanks for any insight.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to 10 Vintage Touches for Your Bathroom
1. Color palette. Black, white and light mint-green tiles are a nostalgic choice full of charm. While vintage-inspired, they have a fresh updated look.
Kelly Porter added this to Your Home: Vintage Color
Embarking on a bathroom remodel? Why not go for an Art Deco feel? Pair up pretty pastel tiles with black ones to create a sophisticated space.
Becky Harris added this to Mint Green Is Fresh Again
The shade used to be seen most often in a vintage bath like this one.
Lisa Frederick added this to So Your Style Is: Art Deco
Style Secret: Strong GeometryPerhaps the signature element of art deco style is its emphasis on geometric shapes. Angular patterns, stepped designs and bold curves all highlight the look — no fussy, dainty patterns or profiles. Picture a 1930s theater marquee and you’ll have the idea. Glam it up: Like a stroke of eyeliner, the black tile in this bath helps to define and draw attention to the space (imagine how timid it would look with the mint-green and white palette alone). It plays off the square and rectangular planes of the sink, mirror and sconces for visual cohesion and a beautiful interplay of angles.
Samantha Schoech added this to Color Guide: How to Work With Green
Mint GreenMint green is creamy and cool and very close to turquoise. It can have a 1950s feel to it, as it does in this bathroom.
MyFixitUpLife show added this to 9 Surprising Considerations for a Bathroom Remodel
2. Hiding the plumbing — or not. Think carefully about fixtures and all the stuff that’s connected to them as you lay out the plumbing, electrical and framing, not the other way around. This will help you avoid mistakes and do tighter work. You may choose to leave plumbing supply lines exposed, as in the bathroom here, for a more industrial or vintage look. Or you may choose to hide them behind the sink pedestal for a more modern look. Little things make big impressions.
Sarah Phipps Design added this to Considering a Fixer-Upper? 15 Questions to Ask First
8. Can you incorporate existing tile, fixtures and finishes? The demolition and remodeling of bathrooms is one of the larger expenses of a remodel, so it's often best to salvage whatever you can if money is an issue.
Judy Polan added this to Splendor in the Bath: Art Deco Brings on the Elegance
This bathroom has the whole art deco package, with its classic color combo of black, white and seafoam green; creative linear touches in black; and elegant glass and chrome wall sconces. The vertical-horizontal dynamic is enhanced by the placement of the green wall tiles, which alternate between horizontal and vertical pairs.
Liz Miller Interiors added this to 8 Ways to Spruce Up an Older Bathroom (Without Remodeling)
Note: The following images are for illustration purposes only and may not reflect actual period installations.1. Update the fixtures. Usually a pedestal sink will still be in good shape after decades of use, but a leaky faucet and out-of-date sconces will need to be replaced. The style of these two items can transform your bathroom and don’t involve changing the tile at all. If you’re dealing with a colored tub, consider having it resurfaced.You can paint the walls and medicine cabinet white and let the tile color — whatever it may be — speak for itself. With a cleaner background, your colored tile could be a new favorite. Keep in mind that even if you do end up ripping out the tile, you can reuse the fixtures in the next phase of your bathroom renovation.
Becky Harris added this to You Said It: ‘The More Dents, the Better’ and More Houzz Quotables
“You can paint the walls and medicine cabinet white and let the tile color — whatever it may be — speak for itself. With a cleaner background, your colored tile could be a new favorite.” — Elizabeth MillerMany of us peruse the gorgeous bathrooms on Houzz, daydreaming about miles of new marble tiles, freestanding bathtubs that are worth more than our cars and light fixtures that cost two months’ salary. Then we take a bathroom break and are quickly brought back to our own realities. This article is for us! Miller leads us through many ways to spruce up a dated bathroom in ways that can turn what seemed like their worst attributes into something we’ll wind up embracing. This is a must-read for anyone who does not have a gut bathroom renovation in the budget anytime soon. Full story: 8 Ways to Spruce Up an Older Bathroom (Without Remodeling)

Annie Thornton added this to Source List: 20 Tiles That Make a Statement
5. Soft Green and Gloss Black Tile From B&W Tile Co.This bold contemporary bathroom looks back to Art Deco design of the 1920s and ’30s. The black tiles create a crisp edge around the mint green tiles in this glamorous and refreshing design. Sconce: Foundry; sink: Richmond Pedestal Lavatory, St. Thomas Creations; Metropole double-handle faucet: Newport Brass
Cheryl Freedman added this to 10 Traditional Features to Make Your Bathroom an Instant Classic
7. Historic hues. We tend to go for white, but color can make a big difference in the bathroom. This Art Deco-style space sports mint-green tiles that instantly transport you back to another era. Note the slim border of black tile, a classic traditional feature. When it comes to bathroom wall lights, it may be worth taking the time to find ones that match your look, like these retro numbers.
