I hate to say this since you seem convinced you need to change them, but I think the previous owners did a great job with the colors they used. I like them just as they are!

I actually love the fixtures, and I think just painting the walls will make a HUGE difference. I think a sage green will look awesome with all the brown.

I think any kind of pastels to lighten the place up would be nice with the neutrals – light blue, lilac, light green (or sage like a PP suggested), etc. A gold/butter color could also look nice.

That’s a really tough color combination if you don’t like browns!In the last photo it almost looks yellow so maybe you could paint it a light shade of yellow? For the other close up it looks like there is more blue in there, so maybe you could go with that?

Good luck, and happy paint chip shopping!

I, like many of the other posters, actually like the colours too 🙂 BUT… since you dont, i agree with an above poster – light neutral shades. You could also take your pictures to a paint store and ask them for recommendations – we did that and they were bang on. They will usualyl give you some small test cans too, you acn pick what colour you like without spending a fortune on big cans. Sometimes they will pick colours you would have never even looked at, but look amazing!

You will have to post some update pictures! 🙂

I agree with sage green in the guest bath! I love the floor and fixtures in there! Good luck! Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

I LOVE the bathrooms!!! I would say pick colors that will go well with the brown…neutrals, sage, teal (shades of blue) but I think it’s easy to work with! I bet even changing the wall color will make a huge difference!

I really love the guest bathroom. So the vanity is almost black/espresso and you just want to change the wall color? I think a really light seafoam green (playing off the green in the tiles) might be really nice.

And wow yea brown overload in master bath. What about a super light gray to play off some of the gray in the tiles in that bath?

I like the brown too! I think a fresh coat of paint on the walls will help.  I like the idea of going with a light teal/aqua.

I think a pale green or blue for the guest bath and a yellow in the master would look great!
