What color should I paint our bathroom? Hints of grey: A certain shade of grey, greyish in tone, taupe, the color of a dove's wing. Ash, the sky on a drizzly morning, the wet sidewalk, a tone setter, calm, the stage before the waking of imagination.
"What color should I paint the bathroom walls?" I asked my friend who has a brilliant sense of color.
She looked around put her hands on her hips and declared, "Certainly not grey or anything remotely related to it. Your bathroom needs to be fresh."
"Oh no... I like grey." I meekly replied and she quickly added, "It might be a good time to change."
Oh no. Goodbye hints of grey in unpolished silver, goodbye the bark of a Plantain tree, goodbye the color of a bed of sand after the wave has smoothed its surface, goodbye tempting clouds of rain and business suits, and long highways at twilight.
"You know," I challenged my friend, "If I paint the bathroom a color other than grey it has to match the rest of the interior of our home."
She laughed, opened her arms wide and teased, "Your home is a canvas of grey waiting for color to splash upon it."
"I'll splash water, the color of water." I thought I had her with that one.
"Yes, yes, yes! Green or blue water will do."
