Silent Giants

I have a confession. Water towers baffle me.
Every time I drive by this one, I think about the person who has to probably climb all those stairs to the top.  Maybe all of those Alfred Hitchcock movies have left their mark.

I also love the vintage green color of the tower.    It actually reminds me of one of my all-time favorite Benjamin Moore paints: “Quiet Moments 1563”.

Here it is in this bathroom from Erin, blogger at House of Turquoise.

I’d say it’s close to the same hue as the water tower.    Imagine the bathroom or water tower painted in a bright green or bright red.   That’s quite a different vibe.  I know I would not feel as completed to soak in that lovely tub.

Moral of the story: Always go for the soothing hues in the bathroom…or  water tower.  And don’t overdo it on the Hitchcock films. 🙂
