Part of today was spent contemplating the wall color in the master bath. Again. I thought I had made the final decision months ago. I had wanted to use Sherwin Williams Pool Blue and use kind of a faux technique.
However, after seeing the sink installed with the marble backsplash the pool blue just didn’t seem to work. The sink and backsplash have such a sleek look and to combine it with the pool blue just seems wrong. Luckily, I had my Lutron color chips so I could use the light switch/plate color chip to help me select a color. I know, seems kind of weird to pick a paint color based on the light switch but I really like the color. Yes, it’s called Taupe but it’s the perfect combination of grey and beige with just a hint of lavender.
So, off to Sherwin Williams again. The salesman knows my dog’s name. Anyways, I got samples of Palisades, Popular Gray and Angora (left to right below) and painted small samples on the wall. I’ve found that even if you paint a sample on a scrap of drywall and hold it in place you must put sample colors on the wall where they’re going to live. Light is everything.
You can’t see the detail in the floor color from this picture so it’s hard to make a truly informed decision from this image. Palisades is a definite no and even though I think Popular Gray is a better match for the backsplash I really like Angora. I’m not a 100% though. It’s so hard because most of the floor is covered with plastic. The more I look at the picture the more I’m thinking it’s going to be Angora. What do you think?
