Refreshing Presence of Green! Green and gray is a less common combination in the bathroom (or for that matter, in any room of the house), and it is hard to pull off unless you get the balance absolutely right. You might want to stay away from very dark shades of green when combining it with gray in the bathroom, as it can create a dull and at times garish atmosphere. Lighter tones of gray combine with lime green and olive green, with a matte finish working well in classic, Victorian and shabby chic style bathrooms, while contemporary bathrooms in gray benefit from simple pops of green.

But this winter, try out something beyond the usual and venture beyond the classic color duo of blue and white by bringing gray into the spectrum. Gray and blue as a combination is far more exciting and it presents you with a wide range of opportunities, as you can even add white as the third color in the room. Lighter shades of blue can also be used extensively, even as gray takes a backseat in these elegant bathrooms.
It is easy to fall in love with a color combination that is as alluring, charming and trendy as yellow and gray.

It is a beautiful blend of sophistication and cheerfulness that can be used in versatile spaces ranging from the contemporary living room to the relaxing bedroom. Today, we turn our attention towards bathrooms that are draped in this hip and timeless color scheme.
It's no secret that we love to focus on getting as much natural light in our homes as possible. So while you may enjoy the sun shining in your big front picture window, there are also times when pulling the curtains closed is exactly what you need. That is just one of the many reasons why every home needs window treatments.
One of the biggest misconceptions about designing a space is the assumption that it must be either timeless or trendy, with no middle ground. In reality, your rooms can contain both elements in a way that is both modern and budget-friendly.
