Remember when we asked you to send photos of a boring bathroom to us, something we could make-over with color?
Here it is, reader and Facebook fan Betsy Orr’s bland bathroom in Rogers, and now you can see the bath makeover online as well.
El Dorado-based interior designer Andrea Brooks (another Facebook fan!) stepped up to the color challenge. Her colorful suggestions:
1. Paint the walls Sherwin Williams Open Air, a tranquil light blue that would give the room a feeling similar to this:
2. Paint the cabinet a deep blue/green, an affordable way to update a basic vanity. Here’s the paint and an idea of the end result:
3.Â Andrea suggests adding roman shades in a striped fabric that pulls the blue and green together.
Which would look similar to this on the window above the bathtub:
4. Then she suggests adding a range of accessories that would tie together the colors: a fabric for the vanity seat, art for the wall next to the tub, trays and bowls for the counter area, and new knobs/pulls for the vanity.

We love the idea of tranquil blue bathroom, spiced up with some colorful accents. You can read the full story online in our Color Issue.
