I have a bathroom that has a harvest gold sink, toilet, and half wall with the same color tile. I want to paint. What would go with it? It is a very small bathroom.

Go with an extremely light color with the palest tinge of color in it; I did mine just about the palest green you can think of. Go to the paint stores (several different ones) and pick up "samples" of the paint available; hold up by the wall to see what jumps out and fits your fancy best. The reason for various paint stores is they have different tints available and it's important to get the right one!

There was a very pale lavender that I am considering using on my bedroom, or a light tangerine color. Gold is a neutral color so any color is going to complement it really. If you are going to paint the ceiling consider using gloss paint instead of flat; it reflects the light and just really jazzes up ceilings!
Good luck to you!

Have you thought about using a wallpaper? Although my bathroom fixtures are white, the paper I have has golds, greens, rusts, etc. on a light brown background. (It's an autumn leaf pattern.) I chose it because this bathroom is off my den which is painted a color that is in the harvest gold family.

The two are very complimentary to each other. I think it would help tone down all the gold in your bathroom.

That's what I have, too, in our powder room and plan to do the walls above the tile with either white wallpaper with small black fleur-de-lis or contemporary flowers. I painted our vanity black. Basically, by ignoring the color of the tiles and choosing something beautiful above them, the focus becomes the wallpaper, and black is a beautiful accent. I used this same theory in our avocado green bathroom with success. Good luck!

I have a bathroom with harvest gold tub, sink, and toilet. The floor is brown and gold speckled. The bottom half of the wall is white ceramic. What color should I paint the top half? It is light tan now.

I had a kitchen that had harvest gold appliances and counter tops, yuk. I found some wonderful wall paper with a background color in a goldish beige and flowers in bright colors. It was so stunning that no one noticed my gold appliances anymore. Later it took me two weeks to sell the house and people were standing in line to make bids on it because of the kitchen wall paper. Our neighborhood had 4 similar homes that were for sale nearby for a year, the realtor could not believe it.

Go with something that makes it look like you chose the gold to match. I favor paper myself or you could add bead board and use turquoise or bright pink rugs and towels. Good luck. (08/10/2010)

How about a pale, dry, old straw colour? And get someone to to paint a large tree in shades of deep foresty greens on the wall facing the door if you can. It looks good in my mind-my dreams always work better than my hands!

I have a harvest gold tub with tile enclosure. The tile and the tub are in perfect condition so we are going to change the floor, walls, toilet, and vanity/sink and make this room look nicer and more modern. Please help. What would you do? Thanks.

If you go with a white sink and toilet I would reglaze the tub white, $200 is very affordable. (05/24/2010)

I agree that the tub, toilet, and sink should match. You may be able to get away with a white or off-white sink if you choose one that has a design (with some gold in it) pattern on it. If you keep the gold tiles, I would use white tile (but put in a few accent pieces in the same shade of gold) on the floor. Or you could paint the shower tiles and use a floor tile that's in the same color family. Use a (distressed) white cabinet or one in a honey brown shade. (05/27/2010)
