Soon, the shower pod will be a thing of the past – and hopefully something I will never experience again. It’s just one of those things that never made sense to me (although the rumor is that it keeps families with children from renting).
Rather than dwell on the pod, I’m looking forward toward the future… which includes a tub. I’m especially excited about detail that because that means we actually get to style the bathroom. This will involve painting the walls, buying a shower curtain, and then accessorizing.
As of right now, we’re currently working with a basic bathroom vanity in a medium wood color, a black and white basket weave tile for the floor, and the towels we registered for (these in Aegean – via Macys). We’re not starting with much, but I think that’s great because it will give us a lot of freedom to do what we want.
That said, I’ve come up with three different options for directions we could go in. Rather than making mood boards, I thought I would edit the photo of our bathroom. I think it helps see everything together.
This is our boldest option. It would include a nice green-teal color on the walls and a colorful shower curtain. It’s easily the most cheery of the options, and definitely budget friendly (as well as provide us with an excuse to stop at an IKEA!).
This option is also cheery, but that mostly has to do with the paint color – one that I’ve been a fan of for a long, long time. It’s definitely a classic pairing of the yellow and grey. You can’t go wrong with a geometric pattern, either.
Our final option is possibly influenced by my eagerness for Spring to arrive, but it’s a beaut none the less. A simple white waffle shower curtain with a soft color on the wall. It sort of feels like a spa in how calming it looks.
We’ll probably use this week to mull it over (and this weekend to purchase the shower curtain – I hope) but I’m curious…
