Fresh yet muted shades.
"When selecting paint colours, I don't follow trends," insists designer Philip Mitchell. "I gravitate towards shades of paint that have subtler hues and softer tones. The more neutral the paint, the more timeless the space. The colours and finishes I choose are usually inspired by the room's architectural details, the amount of natural light the room has and the direction the room faces." This beadboard wainscotting called for a blue with a bit of country, so Mitchell chose Benjamin Moore's Normandy (2129-40) and paired it with bright Ultra White (CC-10) walls. The result is fresh and clean, perfect for a bathroom.
