Getting New Moms Adjusted to Mommyhood One Step at a Time

One place that gets overlooked in the décor department is the bathroom. Why? I'm not sure, as we all go in there a lot, spend a fair amount of minutes (perhaps hours?) every day. Sure, re-decorating isn't the first thing that pops into mind when you think of the bathroom, but it's an easy place to get your decorating groove on for not much money.

-- Get some bold colors. We always think of lighter colors when we think of the bathroom, perhaps because they are usually small-ish spaces, but that is a mistake! Grab a bold shower curtain, like this navy one and match it up with some bold blue and white accessories or even another color like yellow or aqua.

-- Go 3D. Often the only texture in the bathroom is the waffle-weave shower curtain or terry cloth towels. Check out this shower curtain that comes in a variety of colors: it has a 3D effect with the attached cutout leaves. A statement for sure. Match it with sleek brushed metal accessories like these from Target.

-- Bring in cool artwork. I have a huge typography poster in my bathroom that says "Today is the day." I got it from Etsy on from thebigharumph. Or use the artwork on these bath sink items. Use the branch and bird motif throughout with beiges and aqua towels and curtains.

-- Create a spa. If you love the clean look of those chic spas, go all white with a splash of natural materials. These bamboo accessories will help complete that Zen vibe.

What is your bathroom decor like? Do you want to redo it?

 I like our downstairs bathroom and I do decorate my bathroom. We are going to redo the upstairs one. I was thinking of chocolate brown shower curtain, towels and rugs. We are just going to paint the cabinets and I picked out basic white. I was thinking of doing the walls in beige. I picked out the paint samples, now all I have to do is wait for DH to decide to paint it.

Mine is white walls with an aqua colored rug, and shower curtain with bright green frogs and lily pads; and bright red flowers and fish on it. I am slowly buying decorative frog items for in there also. I have a very small flower pot with a frogs clinging to side of it as a toothbrush holder.

Have 2 powder rooms, both very different - one near laundry room is wide yellow and green stripes, with a thinner white stripe between and coordinating "stuff" on walls and in towel colors; second in near entry hall off living room area and is done in with walls faux finished in beiges, and golds on a creamy background, with a wall paper boarder about a foot below the celing and celing painted cream.  Vanity is cream with a black and cream marble sink and surround, and accents are promarily black, and beige.   Main bathroom is white and aqua, and has an aqua wallpaper I really don't like, but hesitate to change because of the time involved.
