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. 


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.
