I have found that the EASIEST way to make a bathroom your own and begin the design process is to pick a shower curtain. Luckily, there are ridiculously awesome shower curtains to be found everywhere. I think of a shower curtain as a huge piece of art that I can actually afford and don't have to buy a frame for. And can get wet. And folds up nicely. What could be more fantastic??
We are renting a house now, and inherited this not-so-cute bathroom with peeling striped wallpaper and fabulous (sarcasm here) vanity with that fake marble look. El gross. Oh yeah, and a wallpaper border that people seemed to be obsessed with.
|The original. Um...ew.|
I picked up this awesome, bright, floral (but not TOO floral - this is the bathroom my husband gets ready in in the morning!) curtain from Room Essentials at Target (on clearance for $10.48!). I was walking around Target and even though I promised Jon that I wouldn't do any decorating stuff for a few months until we got settled, I saw this on the clearance end-of-aisle shelf and couldn't resist! Big yellow and black flowers - gorgeous. It's called "Pineapple flower".
Recommendations? Perhaps just a white on the walls?
