    Bathrooms With Wet Room Areas for a Tub and a Shower

    Lately many designers have been using a wet room strategy to make the most of bathroom space. This approach combines the bathtub and shower together behind a full or partial enclosure that keeps water out of the rest of the bathroom. With a wet room strategy, there’s no standing in the tub while taking a shower, which is more comfortable and accessible. And when bathing kids in a wet room, they can splish-splash as much as they want and any water that gets outside the tub will simply hit the shower floor and go down the drain. Here’s a look at five different takes on the wet room approach ... more

    Ways Your Bathroom Would Look Great in Gray

    If the previously featured blue bathrooms were a tad too colorful for you, perhaps gray is more your speed. Gray has been a popular neutral for quite a while now, and it doesn’t appear to be falling out of favor anytime soon. One complaint I’ve seen about gray is that it can feel too cold and institutional. Here are some examples of how to use gray in a way that is warm and inviting ... more

    Tips for a Sensational Yellow Bathroom

    Ready to move beyond winter white yet? Perk up your senses with an injection of yellow hues in your home. Bathrooms are excellent spaces for this energetic color, since unlike a bedroom or living room, it’s not a space we tend to spend long periods of time in. Being greeted first thing in the morning by a generous dose of yellow as you step into the bathroom can be just the thing to help jump-start the day ... more

    When to Use Grey in the Bathroom

    Gray is a popular neutral to use with more attention-grabbing hues, but I’ve been seeing gray stand all on its own more and more in residential interiors. The trick to working with gray is to counterbalance its coolness so that it doesn’t end up feeling sterile and institutional. You can do this by adding warm wood tones or by choosing a shade of gray on the warmer end of the spectrum. Of course, if you live in a hot climate, a predominantly cool gray bathroom can feel soothing.

    Here are some gray paint selections that run the gamut from light to dark and cool to warm, along with seven stylish examples of how to use gray in a bath ... more

    Eye-Opening Yellow Bedrooms

    I tend to associate the color yellow with the sweet corn my hometown, just outside the reach of suburban Chicago, is famous for. It's also the color of one of the first flowers of spring in that part of the country, daffodils, which my mother planted in beds around the house to herald the end of our long, cold winters. To me yellow represents the color of sunshine, sustenance and rejuvenation. It reminds me of happy, idyllic days and makes me feel optimistic for the future. If you have similar positive associations with yellow, try using it in your bedroom to help you get revved up each morning for the day ahead.

    Below you'll find several sunny yellow bedrooms as well as tips for working the happy hue into your sleeping space...more

    How to Work With Light Grey

    Light gray is this decade's trendiest neutral. It has replaced beige as the wall color of choice. (I actually don't know if this is true in a statistical sense, but it sure feels like it.)

    A true neutral gray is a mixture of black and white, but we hardly ever see a true neutral gray. What we see are infinite shades of warm and cool grays. Warm grays have yellow or brown undertones. Cool grays have a blue undertone. The ubiquitous "greige" is a very warm gray that can look almost beige.

    Cool or blue grays tend to have a very crisp, almost icy look to them. They are wonderful with bright whites in formal rooms and with blues and beiges. You can treat them almost like a light blue. Warm or yellow grays are complemented by creamy whites and warm colors like yellows, pinks and natural woods.

    But, of course, there are no fast rues. A cool gray can be the perfect way to offset wood, and you are more than welcome to mix a warm gray with blues.

    These examples show a variety of mash-ups that work and illustrate the beauty and versatility of the color ...more

    Gorgeous Grey Bedrooms

    I love gray for its versatility. You can go light or dark, warm or cool, and still pair the neutral with just about any other color. Cool grays look fantastic combined with warm wood tones, or go for a warmer gray and add in some black, white and/or metallic accents for a clean, sophisticated vibe.

    How to Work With Charcoal Grey

    Charcoal gray may be a neutral, but it's also a statement. It's bolder than its lighter brethren; more modern than its neutral cousins, the beiges; and less dramatic than black. (I guess that would be Dad?)

    As Texas designer Bex Hale from this season's Design Star says, "Charcoal gray is the little black dress of decor. Dress it up, dress it down — it's my go-to color."

    True gray (or achromatic gray) is a mixture of black and white. It has equal values of red, green and blue (RGB), and thus no hue. Off-grays — what we most often use in decorating — have very subtle but important differences in the values of red, green and blue. Cool grays are noticeably blue, green or violet. Warm grays are noticeably pinkish or brown and may have yellow tones.

    Charcoal off-grays have very subtle differences in the RGB values but remain true neutrals, making them the perfect complement for most colors, especially bright whites, warm citrus hues and pinks.

    Because it appears so often in nature — think stones, storm clouds and the North Atlantic — it also works well in with natural materials like wood, marble and greenery...more

    How to Work With Bright Yellow

    There is a reason the classic happy-face design is bright yellow; it's the cheeriest color in the spectrum. It's the color of sunshine, buttercups, lemons and dandelions.

    In decorating, bright yellow is often relegated to accessories. And no one is complaining about lemon yellow throw pillows or kitchen appliances; the color works great as a splashy accent. But it doesn't necessarily need to be used sparingly. In fact, you can put it anywhere — as long as you have a good plan. Yellow will draw the eye and become an automatic focal point.

    Yellow's perfect color wheel date is violet, purple or indigo. It looks smashing with cool grays, navy blue and eggplant. Yellow also pairs well with other citrus tones (greens and oranges).

    Bright yellow can slide between orange and green hues. Most yellows in decor tend to be on the warmer side, with peachy undertones. But there is lots of room for green-yellows too, especially in mid-century modern and contemporary modern design...more

    Favorite Color Combinations: Gray and Yellow

    As gray and greige reign as the neutrals du jour, you may be wondering what other colors to pair with it. While a safe and elegant choice is to keep everything in a gray, silver, black and white color palette, pairing gray with an electric color can enliven a space and put a stamp of personal style on it. Today we'll take a look at how different shades of yellow pop when paired with gray throughout the house...more
