Everything In This Slideshow

  • Blue + White + Black

    Temper multiple shades of blue with monochromatic accents. In this powder room, blue patterned wallpaper provides a fun backdrop for a painted vanity in a similar shade. The bathroom's artwork incorporates both blue and black for a cohesive color scheme.

  • Khaki + Gray + Canary Yellow

    Take traditional shades like tan and gray to the next level with a pop of citrus color. Lemony accents brighten this otherwise monochromatic bathroom. Rich gray board-and-batten provides depth to the room and sets off light khaki-color walls.

  • Pink + White + Black

    Barbie's dream house has nothing on this beautiful bathroom color scheme. A splash of pink on the vanity and pretty black-and-white floral wallpaper provide feminine flair. Clean white countertops, polished-nickel accents, and glass hardware sparkle against the pink vanity.

  • Sage + White

    Bask in the calming atmosphere of a simple, subdued color scheme inspired by nature. Tile on this bathtub surround shimmers with various shades of light green. The natural hue feels fresh with white wall color, tile flooring, and marble countertops. A section of hardwood flooring continues the earthy scheme and contributes warmth.

  • Purple + White + Brown

    Evoke regal elegance in your bathroom with pretty purple walls. Here, a rich eggplant paint shade continues in honeycomb floor tiles. A white vanity and neutral wall trim prevent the hue from becoming too heavy. Chocolaty brown, seen on a foot stool, brings warmth to the bathroom color scheme.

  • Fire-Engine Red + Crisp White

    Don't be afraid to go bold with your bathroom color scheme. A bright red vanity shouts sophistication when paired with traditional accents like an ornate mirror, vintage chrome faucet, and sparkling wall sconces. Prevent a small space from becoming too busy by embracing loud color on a single item or wall.

  • Rose + Soft Blue + Greige

    Soft pastels can be made sophisticated with a warm neutral and plenty of texture. Here, marble floors and greige walls ground pretty blue and pink accents. Luxurious curtains and plush furniture offset the shiny surrounding surfaces to keep the bathroom color scheme from feeling cold.

  • Navy + Red + White

    Traditional Americana colors -- red, white, and blue -- can look upscale when thoughtfully incorporated. Bold navy and white stripes make this small bathroom appear larger than it really is. With red accents kept to a minimum, the space feels lively and inviting rather than cliche.
