I was in Montreal a few weeks ago and snapped a picture of this classic Carrara marble bathroom in the hotel we stayed in.
You’ll notice that this bathroom is painted a green beige. Since Carrara marble has a blue undertone, I wouldn’t call this the best choice even though it doesn’t clash.
So I did a poll and I thought it would be fun to photoshop them so you could see the difference since this is an easy bathroom to work with.
It was fun to read all your replies on which colour was right and here are some of them:
I like the way the black was repeated in the shower.
White was a big preference (below). No surprise there, it’s the hottest colour trending right now.
Looks a little stark I think.
Here’s another bathroom with Carrara Marble that is painted in white. Less stark here because there is more white in the tile.
Here’s one that is in the realm of SW Zircon. When you have this much tile in a bathroom, it often looks the best when the wall colour simply relates to the existing colours or neutrals in the tile.
Here we have a Carrara mosaic surround with a taupe tile floor. I like that the taupe floor was repeated in the framed mirror above the sink and in the roman shade. It was the best way to take an earthy floor tile and make it work with blue grey marble.
The right styling makes everything beautiful.
Here’s one in a colour, SW Watery. Obviously this bathroom needs to have this blue repeated in the artwork and towels for this to work here.
Here’s a similar blue with white tile. Looks a little less like a clean/dirty combination is happening.
I like this blue wainscotting too, it breaks up the white walls and adds some pizazz!
Which one would you choose?
PS. Also, remember that yellow cafe I posted about a couple weeks ago? I talked about how black trim would have been so wrong on that cafe? Well I had the casings photoshopped so you could see for yourself, here’s the post again if you want to check it out.
I’ve been home for just a week and I leave on Monday morning to lead my Washington, DC course next week and then I’ll be in Charlotte after that before I go to High Point the following weekend.
When you attend one of my courses, I pack it full of so much good information and training that there is barely any time for breaks. No one is ever on their phone because there is absolutely no time to be bored.
In fact, every time I ask which content should be removed because I feel like people should actually get a full 15 minute break, the feedback is always NOTHING.
The feedback forms always ask for MORE, MORE, MORE. And everyone says they had no idea they would get so much!

“This has been one of the best investments in myself that I have ever made. Thank you Maria and Terreeia, I’m so very happy AND grateful”

Why is my course the most expensive course about colour in the industry?
Because it’s the best.
If you don’t understand neutral undertones and how to work with them in your interiors OR exteriors, you’ll continue to make less money than your competitors because you won’t have the confidence to gain your clients trust.
Confidence comes from knowing. There’s no other way to get it.
