I painted the guest bathroom a couple of weekends ago.
Many of you don't know that when it comes to paint color selection, I am woefully deficient. Almost every room I painted in my former place had to be repainted at least twice because I always pick the wrong color.
This deficiency brings great joy to my dear friend and when she is sad my stories of having to repaint always cheer her up. Her favorite is the time I painted my kitchen the exact shade that Pepto Bismol would be if it were green - Pistachio Bismol if you will.
But I digress.
The point is, I can't do paint.
This is the main reason I consult with a decorator.
She helps me pick paint.
You need this background to understand why I am so proud of the paint in the guest bathroom - I picked it all by myself!
And I got it right the first time!
I fear that my pictures really don't do it justice but it is the perfect bathroom color. Sort of a spa blue with a little bit of green in it. I may be hallucinating the green part, but it's my house so deal with it.
"Organza" by Ralph Lauren. Except I had the nice people at Home Depot color match it and I bought Behr. It's cheaper and, according to Consumer Reports, better paint.
I have needed to give this little room some love for a while. It is the one room in the house that I spend no time in and I guess I thought I needed to "bond" with it.
I think I have achieved bonding and for the past two weeks, I've been stopping by the guest bathroom often to turn on the light and enjoy the paint.
