Hey guys! We’re going to start tiling on the bathroom tonight! I’m so ridiculously, incredibly, little-kid-on-her-birthday excited. Today is day 42 of the reno, so tiling feels like the light at the end of a way-longer-than-expected tunnel.
Tiling has got me thinking about the finishing touches in the bath. I know were going to go with crisp white towels (hellllo bleachable linens), but I haven’t decided on a shower curtain yet. Originally, we had planned on painting the walls a pale grey and going with the navy striped West Elm shower curtain we showed in our mood board.
Now that we’ve painted the room a velvety navy, I don’t think that shower curtain will work out. I’ve found a few others I like, but can’t decide on which is my favorite.
I’m really in love with this navy Greek key shower curtain from Ballard Designs. It’s $85 (which is pretty steep for a shower curtain), but I won a $50 gift card to Ballard Designs at haven, bringing my price down to a much more managable $35. The more I look at this one, the more I think I could DIY it…
I also love this ruffly shower curtain from Anthropologie (let’s face it, I love everything from Anthro). It’s so whimsical and feminine; I think it would contrast with our really geometrical tile and give it a little bit of softness. They’re out of stock online, but most of their other shower curtain run in the $90 range.
I also really liked this West Elm Dotted Stripe shower curtain. The pattern is subtle, but not so subtle you don’t see it. I really like the texture in this option, too, and at $49 its price point isn’t out of the ballpark.
I’m really torn on which of these I like this most… and I haven’t even looked at Target or Home Goods yet.
Which curtain would you choose? Does $100+ for a shower curtain seem a bit nutty to you, too? Would you check out some local stores before getting one of these?
