My Bathroom

One of the reasons we bought the house we did was because of the bathroom. We looked at another house that had a walk-in closet but the bathroom was smaller. We decided that it was much more important to have a large and comfortable bathroom than a large closet. After all my clothes aren't going to complain if they are squished but my husband will complain when we bump elbows while he's shaving.

We have always planned on painting the bathroom but have never found a color that we really liked with the towels and shower curtain that we had. For the last year or so our towels have been slowly falling apart. Finally this past Saturday, while we had company visiting, I'd had enough and we headed off to find new towels, rugs and a shower curtain. And we can't just have one thing going on in our house so while my friend and I hung out, played with the kids, and made dinner, Dan painted our bathroom. I LOVE IT!The colors compliment each other so well and it is so absolutely calming. The color is soothing in the evening but doesn't seem dark when we are getting ready in the morning. The blue towels are my new favorite color. And oh my gosh are they soft. The rugs are super soft and feel amazing on my feet. The aren't non-slip so we need to get some carpet sticky stuff to hold them in place but for now we just walk carefully.
We also got brown towels to use when the blue ones are dirty. You can kind of see them up in the right hand corner of the picture above.

And we decided to purchase this cute toothbrush holder that matches the towels we got. Before we had our toothbrushes in a cup that I got when I moved into the dorms 8 years ago. It won't come clean anymore and just looked disgusting, this is so much better.

I LOVE my new bathroom! And I love my husband for being willing to paint our bathroom on a whim!

I love it! I notice your blog template is not brown and blue too, hee hee! I love brown and blue and your bathroom is really tasteful and calming. I need to do something with ours because there are some places where the paint is peeling really bad. But I just have not had the inspiration. Maybe I ought to buy some new towels! But seriously I was thinking of doing kind of a dock-side theme like Red Lobster with corrugated tin that would go with the lighthouses that are already there. But our bathroom is TINY so I don't want to clutter it. SO it still is there with peeling paint.

Uhm, that should say "your template is NOW brown and blue." I didn't proofread. Oops.

Fun! And so sweet of Dan to paint the bathroom like that! (I'm still trying to get John to finish installing trim around the floors - we put in the new floors and carpets over a year and half ago, and did trim in the living room and dining room about 3 weeks ago ... still not done!) (He has quite a long list of things that he needs to do, but hasn't. argh.) :)
