A few months ago, I posted about the use of an orange accent color in my guest room. I wanted to continue this accent into the adjoining guest bath. One of the best things we did in the basement was to add a second door to the bathroom so people can go between the bedroom and bathroom without going into our adjoining play room. So, it really makes sense to have these rooms work together.
The bathroom wall color (Duron - Watery) was really inspired by some towels my mom got us for Christmas intended for use in our master bath. She did not know that we had already bought some, but I loved the color so I decided to use it as a jumping point for the basement bathroom which we started finishing a few weeks after New Years this year.
I loved the colors - white, pale turquoise, and small touches of black tile - but it needed something else. I only had to look through the door to see the ideal color - orange. What was even more perfect was seeing these new Amy Butler towels in a decorating magazine (honestly, I cannot remember which one). I had to have them.
