The Upgrade for a Small Space
Unlike the popular peacock blue-turquoise color that's been a favorite in recent years but that can feel heavy in summer, Jason Oliver Nixon and John Loecke of the interior design firm Madcap Cottage say ultra violet feels fresh in warm weather (think tropical orchids) and "optimistic" in winter, especially in a small space such as a bathroom. If you are going to try it in a bathroom, though, stick to one that you don't use as your primary bathroom, because the tone will affect the room's light, which can make it difficult to apply makeup.
