I’m going to re-do our bathroom in grays and greens. But I can’t paint, so it’s going to just be decals on our cream walls to bring in the color scheme.

Everything in our apartment is very masculine and my husband is super afraid to let that go.

Our first floor bathroom walls are grey – which actually looks quite nice and allows us to use lots of different colours. But I’ve always imagined having a red bathroom with black fixtures. But if you’re keeping your white fixtures – maybe paint a bright blue or green?

Our bath is sort of a gold beige wall (we painted it that color).  We have mostly white as the accent (shower curtain, trim, doors, etc) but our accent colors are brown and slate blue.  Brown wicker shades, brown rug.  The brown, gold and white are great together, and the blue is just a hint of an accent.

I would go with something neutral – like a charcol grey, ice blue, dark brown, something like that if you are unsure if you are going to paint.  Then accent with a bold color:

Yellow, Dark Brown & Brick Red

Yellow, Charcol Grey & Grass Green

Yellow, Dark Grey & Teal

Yellow, Dark Grey & Eggplant

You could also stick with the Yellow and White, really do the yellow and white & accent with something bold, like Fuschia or Lime Green.

It might help to know what color you were “thinking” of painting it.

I would go with a rich chocolate brown. We have yellowish walls and white fixtures and use brown as a bold accent color!

I love garnet and gold!!  Especially if all your fixtures are white to brighten things up. 

My friend had a dark bathroom like that she painted a gold/tan color and then used a red shower curtain and towels, and mounted two dark wood shelves and put some bamboo in them.  Turned out great.

I think a dark red or a grey would be lovely.  =)

We’re redoing our guest bathroom in teal/turquoise and zebra print.

Have you looked at http://www.younghouselove.com?

They have one of the cutest little guest baths I’ve seen & they have a while pedastool sink too! They did a very neutral stripe, & its so pretty.

Personally I think more calm & cool colors vs. bold are great for a guest bath. Like soft greens, blues, & grays for example.

We painted our half-bath a sunshine yellow.  It looks really good with white fixtures.  Here’s a pic.

I think this is pretty fin with the yello, orange, and white:

The blue in this one really lighten ups the yellow:
