It all started 2 years ago when I decided to do a blue guestbath downstairs and I picked out a couple of paint colors to try. This bathroom has no windows, so everything I put in there looked so washed out, so I looked at chips that were a little brighter than I thought I wanted. The first one was WAY too bright, so after I painted it and lived with it awhile, I went back and picked the 2nd color, which is called Marlboro Blue (BM, above color). So, that one has been up for almost 2 years now and I still wasn’t entirely happy with it. It wasn’t quite as bright as the pic above shows (with the flash), but still wasn’t the calm blue I was looking for. This is downstairs next to my office nook and laundry area, so a little different shade of blue was fine for changing that area up. I had wanted to bring this color in somewhere, so this seemed like the best place, the small guestbath. And Malboro was pretty, I just thought I could improve on it, so off on another blue paintchip quest I went and settled on Wedgewood Gray by Benjamin Moore. It’s a softer blue, more grayed down and calm and I think I’m finally happy with this blue!
The shower curtain was a main focal starting point for the whole thing and gave the bath a sort of vintage look, which I liked in here.
I found the floral print at Hobby Lobby and had it framed there. Added just a few accessories on the countertop.
Faux orchid in the corner.
These plates were a find from several years ago in Atlanta at one of my favorite shopping places, Hill Street Warehouse. They have the neatest imported pottery and home goods. These plates are from Italy and I just loved the colors of them and they go perfect in this bathroom.
The box and lime and black polka dot vase were from Homegoods.
Cute vintage bathtub art that I ordered and framed at Hobby Lobby. This shows the color very well.
So, there you have it…the light blue guestbath. I’m loving this paint color and don’t think I’ll be changing it anytime soon. It’s a nice little beachy retreat in our downstairs area.
