We're back to share the tiny makeover we did in the tiny bathroom at the 2017 Curbly House. But the scope and the room are the only small things about the project - because we used a bold color that made a big difference. Read on to see our new, blue 'loo.
Traditionally, we've always been told NOT to paint small rooms a dark color. "Dark paint closes the room in and makes it smaller than it already is!" Blah, blah, blah. Well, here are ten bathrooms that are getting it right when it comes to dark and dramatic.

This bathroom belongs to Tara Mangini & Percy Bright, the couple behind Jersey Ice Cream Company. The pattern can be easily updated by covering the walls in dark chalkboard paint!

This 1,200 sf apartment went through a 10K reno. The result is moody with a smidgen of color here and there. Dark walls, dark floors, dark furniture...and yet, there's something about it that appeals to me. The pink coffee table? The faux bookcase wallpaper? The letter art? I dunno. How about you? Do you think living in such darkness would be cozy or creepy?
