BM Florida Pink #1320 in bathroom?

pinkpaulaJanuary 16, 2010

Our house was built in 1910. One of our bathrooms is very small: 5 1/2 X 6 feet. The floor is covered with small white and black hexagonal tiles. There is white painted beadboard halfway up the wall, which leaves only 4' of wall space above the beadboard. The full sized tub/shower combination is tiled with white subway tiles (with one row of narrow black rope trim near the top), there is a small window, and there is a door opening. Considering that there is also a mirror above the pedestal sink, there is hardly any real wall space to paint.

My question is, With the bottom half of the bathroom basically white (with black and white tile floor),do you think BM Florida Pink will look odd for the top half of such a small room?

I would go with a light pink or light gray (BM edgecomb gray). Add a little pink pop with accessories instead. Sounds like a cute bathroom!

Our powder room is painted the brightest color you could imagine... Festive Orange! We also have white beadboard everywhere but our floor is a medium stained wood.

It's great for a powder room, we get lots of compliments (and jokes about bowel stimulation) but I don't think I would want to get ready every day in such a bright color.

Your color doesn't seem as bright. On my monitor, it looks a little coral-y... before I looked, I imagined a bright neon pink! I think it's a great color and would look fantastic. It's up to you to decide if you can live with it or not.

If not, you can always paint over it.
