Recently, during a consultation, I walked into a bathroom that was very much like this one:

Okay this is actually not that bad compared to the one I saw (which was more like this one), but unless you plan to live in your house for the next 20 years—don’t do it!
The reason I say this is because it’s like painting your bathroom walls dark blue or green, once you get tired of it, you’re stuck with it until you take it out! It’s certainly personal but it’s why I prefer the more timeless look of white or cream.
If you love this [the slate or dark] look, confine it to the flooring (above). I still think white or a light coordinating colour (for the walls) looks clean, just like a bathroom should be!

Remember my post on “When is White just Right?” Well I might have missed White or Cream Tile – it’s just right in bathrooms in my opinion (the powder room being the exception which is the jewelry box of the main floor).
What do you think my lovelies? Has the slate trend of the 2000’s gone too far?
