I just finished redoing the upstairs bedroom and am now going to tackle the bathroom up there. I want them to sort of coordinate. The color in the bedroom was a sage green and I had to scrape it and sand it but with some of the color still on there I put an amethyst color on the walls, high gloss, and it turned out a rustic looking burgundy. I love it. Did the trim in the pure white and I thought it would make the room look small but kind of opened it up. The bathroom is very small, you can barely turn around in there so I'm trying to decide on a color that would match the burgundy yet not look like a female or males bathroom and also not make it appear smaller. Any suggestions?

I can tell you that any dark color will make a room look smaller.

I think a pale grey would look nice with burgundy. I actually have a pale grey wallpaper with streaks of burgundy, white and blue in it and it is pretty. Doesn't sound it but it is.

Hi Shawn

I don't want to do wallpaper. I've tried that before and am NO good at it. LOL. I do have some dark gray towels that would go pretty with some light gray paint. Hmm...... I may have to try that. Thanks. Should the trim be white still?

Oh, sorry.

I've got hunter green and mauve with a little burgundy all throughout the house so I was wondering if a peach color would look okay with the other colors. Figure I could put the peach on the walls, light peach, white trim and have the shower curtain with peach and a little bit of gray so that I could use the gray towels. Have had them for five years and never used them so figure it's time. Didn't know how peach and gray would look though. I'm one that it takes me forever to decide on colors.

Bumping up this thread.

I would like to take the wallpaper down in the bathroom in my home, and paint the walls.

The sink, tub, toilet and floor tile are a light "terra cotta" type color. Not too pink.

The room has one small window that faces north, so there's not much light in there.

I'm wondering what color I could use on the walls that would go with the tile & fixtures but not make the room look too tiny (it's already quite small). I was thinking about a sage green....any good ideas?
