I think my real hang up, and the difference between our bathroom and my inspiration photo, is that our tiles are tan and our trim is bright white. So with the navy against the bright white trim, the tiles look dirty and the trim glows and the contrast is just too much. But still I trudged ahead because heck the paint only cost me $7 and I had convinced myself that's what I wanted in there.
Please excuse the gross vent- that's why there are covers
But after waiting a while and going in and out of the room a few times and already feeling like it was closing in with only a couple walls half-painted I ultimately decided to nix the navy and instead keep things light. I'm not sure exactly what direction I want to go in now but I'll definitely keep ya posted. I guess after picking the perfect colors for our bedroom, office, and living/dining room I'm allowed one paint Fail. And this was it.
