What about lighting that incorporates several different greens and purples together? To tie things in?

Like these:

What about a french gray paint on the walls, pale; leave the stark white trim. And the white inside the arch.

Then! hanging from the arch, what about a fantastic light fixture? Something geometric, or maybe from the ceiling hang a few. Maybe faceted. Something that mimics the other shapes. And put them on dimmers, so that when you're in the bathroom you can actually take the colors down a notch.

Lighting has the biggest impact on how we see things. Choose a color temperature a little cooler like 4000K for the lamps to not muddy the colors. Stay away from incandescent!

I would actually say something in the red, or red-orange family. Use the blue, and go it's complimentary. It should be fun! then go with the tan sheets, and maybe some pillows that match the blue/teal.

I like to change the lighting up. Since winters in Michigan can be kinda gloomy, I always make sure there's something exciting about lighting.

New bulbs with the natural white light, getting tinted bulbs (even fun colored ones), moving lamps around, thrifting for some change-up lamps, etc. can really help keep things bright and fun. Plus, it's a relatively inexpensive way to change the look of a room.

Love the candle idea; those are perfect for winter!
