4 Bathroom Paint Colors Interior Designers Swear By | MyDomaine
It's no secret that paint can transform a space. Whether you're looking to refresh your small powder room or revamp your master bathroom, a fresh coat can quickly take a room of any size from drab and dreary to open and bright or moody and sophisticated. But, as anyone who's wandered down the paint aisle at their local hardware store can attest, choosing a paint color is easier said than done.
When it comes to selecting the right bathroom paint color, there are a number of factors to consider that are specific to that space, particularly if you're freshening up a particularly small bathroom. Will a dark hue make the room feel sophisticated and modern or cramped and cave-like? Will a crisp shade of white look too cold and stark in a room without windows? Because paint colors can be so hard to envision, naturally, we turned to the pros to narrow down our swatch selection.
Keep scrolling to find out why interiors designers call these the "best bathroom paint colors."

Inside OITNB's Samira Wiley and Wife Lauren Morelli's Cali Bungalow: 'We Had an Opportunity to Be Uniquely Feminine'
“My goal was definitely color,” says OITNB writer and producer Morelli

Samira Wiley, star of Orange Is the New Black and The Handmaid’s Tale, and her wife Lauren Morelli are living a colorful newlywed life in their cozy Los Angeles abode. “The house isn’t huge,” Morelli tells Architectural Digest. “It’s a cozy little California bungalow.” Although Morelli bought the property when she and Wiley had just started dating, the OITNB writer and producer still took Wiley’s opinion into account from the get-go. “I always knew I was going to move in,” Wiley says.

How actress Samira Wiley and TV writer Lauren Morelli made Morelli’s house their home
Actress Samira Wiley (The Handmaid’s Tale) and television writer and producer Lauren Morelli (Orange Is the New Black) have only been married for seven months, but their Los Angeles bungalow looks like it’s a result of years of work tweaking and perfecting.
The couple’s home, featured in Architectural Digest, was home to Morelli before the couple wed, but it was quickly cleared out. “We started totally from scratch, and it's my first adult home, so it felt really nice to let go of the cheap, gross couch,” admits Morelli.
The house’s vibrant, fanciful design is by Stefani Stein, who worked with the pair to create a space that incorporates bold elements (the Lips on White wallpaper by Voutsa in the office; an ombre pink wall in the bedroom) with wood, marble, and white walls “which brought a sense of balance to the composition,” Stein explains.
Making design decisions was uncharted territory for both Morelli and Wiley, and they were glad to have a designer steering the ship. "I'm just starting to learn I can have opinions: 'Yes, I love that wallpaper. Yes, I love this,' Wiley says.
