Erin's "Turquoise Powder Room" Bathroom
Turquoise Powder Room
A custom mixed turquoise paint that was colour-matched to the blue flowers in the wallpaper; gold crafting paint from Michael's for the ceiling; Behr Creamy White semigloss for the trim (my fave trim colour).
I moved into my boyfriend's suburban McMansion after years of renting funky downtown apartments. His home decor was in a state of emergency, so I took it upon myself to paint and redecorate the entire place. Because he's not a big fan of over-the-top decor - or, um, *any* decor whatsoever - I kept every room very neutral... but I wanted to have fun in at least one room. And, I WANTED LOUD TURQUOISE SOMEWHERE (I'm obsessed with turquoise right now). The powder room was the obvious choice, being so small and rarely-used. I found the wallpaper in the back corner of a home decor store and nearly fainted when I saw the crazy turquoise flowers. It became the inspiration.
Pick a colour you absolutely love, are obsesed with, can't get enough of, and make it your inspiration - even if it's an "ugly" colour, outdated or one that doesn't seem to match anything. Who cares? You'll love it.
