Take a look below to see how much of a difference paint can make when trying to make one thing to stand out and something else blend in.
You see, people have this notion that mouldings and doors should be white and walls should have color, so doing something different can oftentimes be a tough sell to a client. Fortunately though, during a recent stay at Shorebreak Hotel, my guest room featured a great example of how this look can be successfully pulled off.
Take a look at the picture on the left. You can see how the cool, barn door-style, sliding door was made to stand out in this hotel room, as a result of it being painted in a contrasting color. And the louvered closet doors are painted to match the wall, so they won't compete, visually, with the unique door leading into the bathroom.
Do you see how this works?
The door to the bathroom is more noticeable than the closet doors, because it contrasts. And the closet doors blend in with the surrounding walls so they disappear.
Tricky, huh? ;-)
Also in the room . . .
Here's what the bathroom behind the barn door looks like. Pretty cool, right?
Oh, and the bathtub! It was absolutely divine!
