Designer Abigail Ahern's Bathroom: Two Different Paint Colours, Two Different Looks

The bathroom of the on-trend designer Abigail Ahern's has had two distinct paint looks, which perfectly demonstrate her journey to the Dark Side of paint colours. Have a look and see which bathroom paint you prefer.

1) The first paint to grace Abigail Ahern's bathroom walls is Dulux Dusted Moss (1 - the deepest of the four available saturations) with a crisp white ceiling.

Dulux Dusted Moss was one of Relics of Witney's colour choices for their post on The Best Grey Paints. Isn't that grey green paint colour delicious?

2) Look number two is very different. Abigail Ahern went on to paint her bathroom with Farrow and Ball London Clay, a sludgy, warm deepest greige. The soft hint of pink in the London Clay paint would work really well as a darker foil to Farrow and Ball Elephant's Breath.

What makes the most enormous difference is that Abigail Ahern has used Farrow and Ball London Clay paint on the bathroom ceiling too, giving the rather lovely feeling of a cocoon.

Now, and I say this rather coyly, as Abigail has certainly earned her design-stripes with her bold take on colour, I *whispers* prefer the look of the Dulux Dusted Moss version.

What about you? Are you a calm and serene Dulux Dusted Moss fan, or a cheerleader for the warm haven Farrow and Ball London Clay paint provides in Abigail Ahern's bathroom?

'London Clay' for me. What a great colour.
The chandelier is pretty special too!
Hope you have a lovely week,

You've left me with a bit of a conundrum. I Love the "London Clay" colour... but there is NO way I would have painted everything in it. I actually think that it makes the room seem damp and cold rather than warm and cozy. I think "Dusted Moss" works better in the room. As much as I love interior design, at the end of the day the look has to reflect the person who lives there - be something that makes them feel good. I'm more than happy to toss "on trend" out the window if it doesn't work for me. How about you?

Last year I decided, after much thought, that I definitely wanted to remodel my bathroom. A colleague of mine suggested I contact the team at Classic Kitchen and Bath in Illinois. I was very pleased after the first call. What I admire the most about their team is that they truly enjoy what they do and they took the time to customize designs to my desire. To date, I stand in my bathroom and look at it with awe. Visit their website today www.myclassickitchenandbath.com or call 630-515-9151. I highly recommend them to everyone considering kitchen and bathroom remodeling.

London Clay is such a sophisticated color. Love it. And I wouldn't mind having a chandelier and fireplace like the ones in the photos.
