03. Aspire .05 creates an uplifting and cheerful mood in your space. Yellows and golds are often hard to get right on the walls; Aspire .05 is a very comfortable shade and an easy color to enjoy and brightens your room.  Accent with navy blue or a rich rustic orange to add a punch of drama.

04. Coral Expression is a variation of one of the hottest colors of the year, pink!  Coral expression is a sophisticated, dusty pink that will add some glam to your bathroom.  Chrome and clear fixtures, mirrored accessories and a splash of white and black can really take enhance this dramatic color.

05. Wild Mushroom is a wonderfully natural hue that has a duel personality.  It has neutral qualities that allow it to be a rich, standalone color in your bathroom or works great as an accent for a white or cream bath.

06. Grain .07 will add a little bit of spice to your master bath. Grain .07 is a rich and elegant hue that can benefit by many different accent colors, but white trim and molding and black cabinets really make this color sing. This is another of our Eco Options paints from YOLO, with no VOCs.

08. October Leaf, from Martha Stewart Living, is no longer available. Behr’s Antique Copper has a very similar burnished, vintage feel that can really set your bathroom apart from the rest of your home. Antique Copper has that comfortable feel but also adds an elegant depth to your walls. Pale golds and brushed brass accents fit comfortably with this hue.

09. Deepest Aqua brings that hot teal trend into your space, but with a classic twist.  Silver accessories and white bring it all together.  This shade works great with just a touch of black or chocolate in the room.

10. Shortbread = beige? Not quite. This neutral is more complex than your standard beige. Shortbread works wonderfully with natural stone and marble. This hue opens up your accent color options to cover just about anything you feel like pairing with it.
