Paint Color Advice

I have just redone one of my bathrooms. The colors are gray, white, and black marble with satin nickel finishes. What color can I paint? I was thinking mauve. Do you agree?

Any color would go with grey, black, and white. Mauve would give a very sophisticated look. (02/22/2010)

I agree that most any color will work with what you have. Keep in mind that mauve is a very dated color. Finding accessories (like bath towels, shower curtain, etc.) to match will be very difficult to coordinate.

If you are wanting fresh color and updated a good choice would be soft shades of blue, pink, lavender, green, yellow, or even a citrus yet muted orange .


Mauve is a muddy (tan) pink and is kind of a downer of a pink. Paired with black and gray, colors that don't have brown tones, to play off the gray and the brushed nickel is going to be the direction I would go with. (02/22/2010)

If there's not too much painted area, how about a hot, vivid red?

Mauve is so out! How about a nice earthy or bright green? Add some plants, too. (02/27/2010)
