A Countryside New England Style Contemporary Bathroom Gets A Makeover


From Orange To Green... Adding a little New England Style Flair



I was asked to select a color that would work with this New England style contemporary home.  They had just installed new floors, cabinets, lighting, fixtures, and a granite top to the vanity.  A soft soothing historical New England green, from Benjamin Moore, called Hollingsworth Green was selected to complement everything in the room.   

After a little prep work and sanding, I primed over the green board, spackle, and deep orange paint, let it dry, then followed up with an eggshell finish. 

PROJECT TIPS:

Keep your coats of spackle thin and feather the edges to lessen the amount of sanding needed.  


when sanding, it is helpful to have a vacuum head following below to help suck up the dust before it spreads around the room.

Isn't it amazing how color can change the feel of a room.
