The true color of our guest bathroom doesn't show up here it looks gray but it isn't. I will have to look up the paint color and add it later. We bought this picture on a trip to Montreal Canada many, many years ago. It is a scene from downtown Montreal. The black picture frame is the inspiration I had to update our guest bathroom with accents of black.
I found a set of four different bird plates at my favorite store - Homegoods - in black and white and immediately knew where I wanted to hang them.
Another great find at - Homegoods - this cute white lamp with the black toile shade and you can't see it here but the lamp has a cute bird finial.
Now you see all four black and white bird plates...
Bird plates and black toile lamp together...
Black and white towels added along with a view in the mirror of the white shower curtain with black trim. I also added a beautiful white crocheted doily that I purchased at a craft fair to the top of the toilet..
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: A doily (or doilie) is an ornamental mat, originally the name of a fabric, from Doiley, a 17th century London draper. They are usually made of cotton or linen thread, oftencrocheted but may also be knitted. Openwork allows the underlying surface to show through. In addition to their decorative function, doilies have the utilitarian role of protecting fine-wood furniture from the scratches caused by crockery or decorative objects..
I'm not done yet I still have to get the window treatment. Hope you enjoy the tour of my almost updated guest bathroom. What do you think of my black accents? Do you have any rooms with black accents?
Update: Paint color of our guest bath room is Benjamin Moore's Regal Wall Satin Latex Interior Flat in the color of "Emerald Vapor". It's a very, very light shade with just a hint of pale blue with a greenish or aqua shading. The color reflected in the mirror photos above is a more true coloring of the shade. I wanted the lightest color I could find. In the same range of Regal colors we painted our master bath in the color "April Sky" which is very pale, light shade too but more of a blue shade than "Emerald Vapor". I would suggest stopping in at a Benjamin Moore store to obtain a color chart. The Regals have an excellent selection of very pale, light shades.
