Remember this photo of my bland bathroom?†
Well, I've made some great progress on the makeover. I chose this awesome shower curtain from Target that is full of pattern. Due to the way the bathroom is laid out, the shower curtain is parallel to the doorway. When you walk past the bathroom, you see the shower curtain. And I'm glad that it's visible so I can enjoy it!
And since the Chip It! tool from Sherwin-Williams showed me which colors would work best, I decided to go with Overjoy for the walls!†
I think a yellow bathroom will be a lot of fun. And Overjoy is bright and light enough to really liven up the space.
I found a few other accessories that complement the colors in the shower curtain as well.
I love how that little white vase on the left mirrors the flower pattern on the shower curtain. And it's delicate enough to sit amongst other bottles and vases on the sink without taking up too much space.
The light pink soap dispenser came from Target. I like that I can pull in a little bit of pink without it being too pink.
I love these containers for q-tips and cotton balls. These will sit on the sink as well, so guests can find them easily. There is nothing worse than staying at someone's home and not being able to find little bathroom necessities like these. Leaving them visible--but contained--is a great way to decorate a countertop.†
I've also been inspired by this photo and am hoping to find some flowers and a similar vase.
For wall art, I'm hoping to find something simple, since the shower curtain is so busy. Maybe even a decal or a metal "piece" instead of art. I'll have to see what I can find!†
Have you tested out the Chip It! button yet? †Drag the Chip It! button to your toolbar:
It's so simple, and really helps you think outside the box with color options. You can watch a short video on how to use it here.
I can't wait to show you the bathroom when it's finished. I'm hoping for a fresh and bright room for my guests!†
