I'm in love with the vanilla and greens. Feels like the ocean and sea glass. Please no to burgundy.

We have a terra cotta tiled and creamy coffee colored master bath. When we renovated 8 years ago I wanted to pull it out and do a more “modern” black, white and gray look with marble but for budget reasons we didn’t. I am happy that we have many of the wall colors in my house which I have enjoyed despite the trends to the contrary, including pale blues, greens, beiges, pink, and a teal accent wall in the master.

I think Gen Xers and Y are responding to the colors they probably saw in their Grandparent’s homes “ way back when”. The Boomers are giving homage to an earlier time; Midcentury, because of the emotional pull those colors and design have. We don’t seem to have the same attraction to colors that were popular in our recent pass. Plus we may be convinced that we need to “get with the times“ and “move on”.
