Bathroom: Emphasize Good Bones

Pale blues and greens in a bath are common picks because they are soothing, says Chicago-based interior designer Kara Mann. "But that doesn't mean you should be afraid of using an unexpected color," she says. "In a small space, it packs a lot of punch."

The contrast between the crisp white and watery blue helps focus the eye on the wainscot paneling, one of the bathroom's nicest architectural features.
