So here’s the scoop; Peggy has an interior design business in California. She loves the spatial planning realm of her work but not necessarily the paint color portion :) So we work together frequently on a wide variety of projects from stadium suites to sprawling mansions to mobile homes. It is REALLY fun. Like the yin and the yang.
One of our recent tinkerings was in Peggy’s (daughters’) bathroom. It had been painted pink, etc… years ago when the girls were young. Since they are now teenagers, it was time for a sophisticated, updated look!
When I dig into a new project, I start by studying client photos in search of existing colors we must incorporate into the overall plan. In this case, the floor tile is white with little red accents. So this makes me think we should avoid adding another bold color. And I don’t want to paint the bathroom screaming red, so call in the neutrals! The first that comes to mind is taupe.

We both loved this new possible direction and felt it would be attainable without an exhausting level of effort. So I put together some paint color options, and a winner quickly emerged… Benjamin Moore indian river 985 (this one never seems to let me down).
And HERE my friends, is the winning new look-
What do you think?
