Corrinne's picture

My house is a 1912 house. We've done all the major things like wiring etc. but we are burnt out and I could use some advice on our main bathroom, It's 1940's tub, toilet, and sink that is flesh (sort of peach) tone and we don't want to rip it all out. can anyone suggest what colours that would compliment these fixtures. I want to tile the bath area, new floors, and fresh paint. HELP!!!!!!

There are a couple ways you could go with this I think. You could really play up the 1940's feel and do some research on a truly retro bathroom. Or you could do something a bit more modern with peach as the accent tone. If you aren't afraid of a dark colour, You could try matching a chocolate brown and some beige to your bathroom (maybe chocolate brown walls with beige flooring) then do beige and peach towel.
