The easiest (and easily least pricey) way to transform a bathroom into a freshly-decorated space of comfort is the simple addition of a bright new shower curtain. A solid color can add cohesiveness and a sense of quiet to an otherwise cluttered space, while a slightly cheeky, visually arresting print can bring character to a stark white cube covered in plain old tile.
Anthropologie’s soft cotton “Tender Falls” curtain, above, features tone-on-tone petal appliques, infusing a feminine floral element without being overt and expected. Below, Blissliving Home’s “Icelandic Dream” shower curtain incorporates color in a soothing blend of ice blue, pale yellow and cream with an oversized botanical print:
Throwing a couple of whimsical touches into the mix are World Market and Urban Outfitters, with the former’s “Ducky” curtain and the latter’s “Grasses” design bringing an element of fun into the bathroom with simple, classic bathtime illustrations and an easy-to-clean, vinyl macro design:
And rounding out the bunch is another calming botanical print courtesy of the shimmery “Cocoa Dandelion” curtain from Target, plus the chic white “Rosette” fabric curtain from Bed Bath & Beyond, a more accessible alternative to Anthropologie’s take on the subtle femininity. Whether you want to cross over to the dark side or keep things light and airy, these two have it covered:
Although beautiful and a bit on the soft side, each is gender-neutral with broad appeal, perfect for a his-and-hers space or guest bath. When a new tub, coat of paint or complete retiling just isn’t in the cards, these simple solutions are truly the next best thing.
