Global Chic Guest Bathroom - ORC Week 4

The last four weeks of the One Room Challenge have just flown by! There are only 2 weeks left to go before everyone’s BIG room reveals! I’ve really been enjoying visiting the other guest participants and featured designers blogs and social media to see their work in progress. This week I traveled back and forth to The Home Depot FIVE times for paint! It all started with the first gray wall color which was too light then the second gray color was a little darker but I didn’t like the way it looked next to the wallpaper so then I chose a totally different wall color... PEACH. πŸ‘ That choice kinda came out of nowhere but the room seems much warmer and cozier. So because of the wall color change, I decided to switch out the shower curtain for a different one that included more colors in it to break up all the peach/orange hues going on.

Then I came across a huge issue with the “Vintage Coral” cabinet paint I had planned on using. Turns out that not every Behr color formula is compatible with the Behr Alkyd Enamel paint. Who knew? 🀷🏼‍♀️ The employee tried to color match the swatch but when I applied it to the cabinets, it looked way more like a pinkish coral instead of orangey coral like it appears on the swatch. So I decided to go one paint swatch shade darker and try out “Aloe Blossom” but now it looks πŸ‘€ BRIGHT orange! I’m kinda at a stand still because I feel bad πŸ˜” about continuously changing the paint color but I’m still not satisfied. I haven’t decided what to do yet and I’m getting really frustrated. I’m starting to think that the skylight is pouring tons of natural light in the room and all the colors appear way more intense. Or I’ve just lost my magical ability to pick the perfect paint colors. 😭 🎨

If all that wasn’t enough to think about, I am also second guessing the light fixture and considering one with a more simple modern style. This weeks progress has kinda been like a yo-yo... forwards then backwards, then forwards again then backwards again. I’m running out of time and I need a designer fairy to come wave her magic wand. 🧚🏻‍♀️✨
