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.
