    Bathroom Accent Wall - Be Honest!

    Advertisements
    We're slowly adding some color to our house and decided to do an accent wall in the half-bath. DH said he wanted something bright, so after bringing home a few sample cards, we decided on "Zinnia". The fish and the vase were already there.



    Straight on view:



    What do you think? My brain nearly explodes every time I look at it because I'm trying to adjust to the ZOMG bright but I think I like it. Also if you're planning to paint and haven't tried frog tape, I highly recommend it

    its not bad if you like yellow.

    So long as I wouldn't have to look at it while sitting on the toilet it wouldn't be a big deal I suppose.. if you like yellow (which I do not).

    I like it! I think it would look nice with some really dark wood trim around it, or something hanging up on the top part.

    I would paint the other walls something other than white, just to kind of tone down the big difference. I do think it's a very bold statement wall!
    Never do anything halfway unless you want to be half happy.

    Is this a dream? If it is, please don't wake me from this high. I'd become comfortably numb
    until you opened up my eyes to what it's like when everything is right...I can't believe you found me ♥

    I love bold color, but that's not something I'd pick. I'd probably get a rusty orange, thin it out, and brush it over the yellow (with a very dry brush or cloth) to town it down and give it some depth.

    I like it - it's not what I would do, but I think it looks well done and I like the way it sets off the colors in the accessories.

    It makes me cheerful My rooms yellow, but... I think if my WHOLE room was that colour I'd have a migrane! I like it as an accent though

    It's interesting that it is coming across as yellow because it's definitely very orange!

    We've thought about hanging something, but the ceilings are 10 ft in there, so I think it'd be weird to have something so high up! The previous owners had a nail in the wall to the left more at eye level/normal hanging height so we could add something there. It's just also quite narrow. As for not having to look at it, I pretty much never go in there and actually forgot this morning that we had painted it
