Just needs patching up really, it's painted jade white which I thought was going to be green but it's like a pale blue, which I like, but could take this opportunity to change it. Obviously skirting boards need doing too

It’s a great size and fairly shaded so I would be tempted to paint it a dark blue colour to give it some drama. Stiffkey blue from Farrow and Ball is what i would choose.

Are you going to use a 'bathroom' paint? - good for steamy conditions....I find the colour choices really limited across all the main ranges.

What colour is the floor? Is it dark grey or black?

I have used Mizzle by F&B in a similar bathroom and that works. Also Wevet really reflects light.

Do you have a shower and any tiles? What colour are they?

Floor is dark grey, unit is light grey

Shower, white tiles

I've got stiffkey blue in the kitchen so was trying to do something different.

I like that mizzle, grey/green

Timeless by dulux would look nice.

It's a lovely room. I wouldn't go creamy or grey neutral, it can carry off a bit of colour.
I like the suggestion of Mizzle as above. Lovely sophisticated colour

Do you think this is similar to the mizzle?

It looks a bit paler and greyer. Really depends on your light.

I have my house painted in a few Heritage colours but all mixed up at a Trade paint place for a lot less money.

Oh yeah , I'll get the cheaper paint

Just thought I'd update with a pic
So delighted with the Mizzle!

It's a lovely bathroom envy

Gorgeous bathroom, that colour works much better than the more blue tone.

Thank you
I keep stopping to look at it as I walk past!
