A prime example of the successful layering of color comes from Zürich's Bergdorf Agency for Concepts and Communication , a creative group that used 40 different shades in the interior redesign of an old chalet in the Bernese Oberland . Our favorite spectrum in the chalet is the range of greens seen, from watered-down mint to spearmint and dusty sage. Here, we've decoded some of the colors and essential elements in the small attic bathroom to mimic the look. Above: The small bathroom off the equally small attic bedroom has several shades of paint, from gray to green. Above: A built-in storage cupboard painted pale gray stands opposite sage-green square tiles. The Basics Above:  Pale Powder  is a Farrow & Ball color that has white undertones (it's a lighter version of Farrow & Ball's Teresa's Garden, a medium green with blue undertones). Pale Powder is $95 for a gallon of eggshell paint at Farrow & Ball. Above: Farrow & Ball's Manor House Gray  paint is a close match to the gray used on the bathroom armoire, and would also work well on bathroom cupboard doors. The color is inspired by the rich grays of traditional 18th century decor; $95 per gallon.  Above:  2-Inch Square Light Sage Green Glass Tiles  are $13.63 per square foot from Susan Jablon. Above: The  Grohe Bathroom Faucet Single Handle with Drain Assembly  is $159.39 from eFaucets. Above: The  Duravit 034455 Wash Basin with Overflow and Tap Platform  in white porcelain is $180 from Faucet Direct. Above: The  Vitra Wall-Mounted Ceramic Toilet  requires Geberit tank and carrier, and a samba flush plate; $302 at The Bath Outlet. Lighting and Accessories Above: The  Tolomeo Wall Spot Light  is currently on sale for $165.75 at YLighting. Above: Restoration Hardware's  Custom Metal Floating Mirror  is available with a minimalist frame in a polished nickel, antiqued brass, or raw steel finish; $1,145. Another close match at a more affordable price, the   Frameless Round Beveled Mirror  is   $92.99 from Above: The Amerock Large Silver Coat and Hat Hook is $7.99 at Ace Hardware. Above: Linen Me's Green Multi-Striped Linen Bath Towel is £17.99 for the 65- by 130-centimeter size at Linen Me. Above: From Beehouse of Colorado, a  Large White Ceramic Soap Dispenser is $28. Above: The Arnev Soft Matte Black Switch Plate Cover  ranges in price from $8.87 to $11.87 depending on size. Above: From Daily General, the  Square Waste Basket in Mint , made of powder-coated steel, is $80. Contact Daily General for availability.
