like tubs, toilets, and sinks, now come in every different hue. If you aren’t ready to make a com- mitment to colorful fixtures, a fresh coat of paint, a colorful wallpaper accent wall, or lighting and accessories can satisfy the color urge without re- quiring a major investment. An all white bath can take on a fresh new look with a cheerful, bright marigold pendant lantern, and a traditional bath can be made modern with a painted wall in a current color, like blush pink. If you are ready for technicolor, try a wallcovering like Cole & Son’s Prism paper, from their Geometric II collection. And if you have a freestanding tub, the base can be painted in a matching or contrasting color. Just make sure you select a finish that is both waterproof and durable. Don’t be afraid to experiment with accesso- ries, and even art or sculpture. Accent pieces are a great way to experiment with color before embracing the rainbow. ■

in marigold, also comes in navy, pink,
white, and mint. Farrow & Ball’s Paean Black is a red-based black that gives the appearance of old leather. OPPOSITE: A bath in Farrow & Ball’s India Yellow creates a warm and cozy environment.
