OK I just posted this under what is your project. But I want ALOT of ideas so I am reposting in its own title.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?? The bedroom and closet is a DARK GREEN BROWN. The cabinets are antiqued, counter nice marble, brush bronzed fixtures. The walls are baby blue and tile mostly whitish/cream. I think the blue does not go w/ the flow of the other colors of the bedroom and other items. I am leaning towards very light off white or dark chocolate brown. DH says leave it blue or white. What do you all think? Oh to the left is another sink, window, and linen closet and to the right is a door with the toilet and tub following. That room is also baby blue with a dark cream/light brown tub and toilet. All the closets and doors are a very light cream/off white color.

I would say going with a lighter shade on the color chart than your hall - which I love.  Do the lightest color on that strip.  Chocolate brown could also work (don't be afraid to go to the darkest color on the same strip as your hall color).   My bathroom is a dark chocolate brown, woodwork is white, tile looks like stone and has different shades of cream & brown.  I love the chocolate brown.  But I'd suggest adding a long horizontal mirror that covers more of the wall you see from down the hall and reflects the light back so it doesn't look like you're looking down into a cave.

I like the blue!  I love light blues with any shades of tan and brown. Very soothing in my opinion :)

I like the idea of a cream colour, and you're right, the blue doesn't sound liek ti matches very well.

Cream or Tan or Gold...or a warm lighter brown. Off white is a little too light, and chocolate brown is too dark IMO. MY oldest son is named Corbin!! He's 5.

I like a gold accent color in that room. It's hard to really tell, though, b/c I can't see how big it is.
