upstairs bathroom

I think I've figured out my upstairs bathroom. At the beach this summer, I decided that I should make it the same teal blue as the pool tiles at Amy's mom's complex. Back home, I realized that it would be much too dark and I settled on Freshaire Midwest Spring. It's a lovely shade of pool-water blue-ish green. Perfect.

And then this weekend, I found this shower curtain at Target:


It's crinkled polyester silk and looks like water. Reminiscent of Restoration Hardware's Silver Sage, which almost makes me not like it. But it's lovely and the right feel for my bathroom so yeah, I like it.

It's just a shade darker than the walls, which I like so it's not too matchy. The hem is a bit longer in the middle than the edges, but I don't really care about that and need to hem it about 1/2 an inch anyway so can fix it then. I've thought about raising the shower bar, but then that would take away some of the light from the window and I'm all about light.

I also got towels that match the walls perfectly, but the bathmat was actually a slightly darker shade so I'm going to return that and get a fluffy white one. I put down the one from my old apartment and love the white, but it's a bit too small and is quite dingy from years of use.

On the wall I think I'm going to hang my 2007 Bonnaroo poster. The background is black and I'm going to have it framed with a white mat and silver frame, which will be a nice contrast to all the pale aquas in this room.
