I once read a decorator’s recommendation that if you are unhappy with the color of a fixed element in a room, such as ceramic tile, the best way to cope with the offensive color is to add more of that very color. It sounds like an oxymoron so I had to try it. The bathroom shown is in a 1958 ranch home. The 50’s pink tile is in perfect condition and there was no budget to renovate but the homeowner desperately wanted the pink to go away. It took some convincing before the pink, blue, and white floral wallpaper was replaced with pink paint, an identical match to the existing tile. A faux finish of pink, cranberry, and green-beige, was applied to the window wall; green-beige throw rugs, towels, and curtains were added along with natural wicker accessories. To everyone’s surprise, the abundance of pink accented with accessories in muted colors took the pastel-look away and the space looks warm and almost neutral. There is no denying the walls are pink but with the warmth of the space, there is no need to renovate for several more years. That is my kind of beautiful!
