dream home {bathroom}

Our new bathroom will be pretty small, but with a fresh clean look the space will look larger. We will repaint the turquoise walls and brown ceiling (?!) white and bring in color through the shower curtain and accents. I love the idea of a nautical themed bathroom. It reminds me of summers at Cape Cod with my great aunt Carol and uncle Avril.

This gorgeous bathroom makeover was featured on Design*Sponge. The warm wood, clean tile and bright accents are calming without being too beach themed. My goals will be to find or make a gingham shower curtain and a rustic chair or stool for towels like in the photo below.

Flowers always look lovely in bathrooms, but I would want to use something that dries well. Simple flowers, like the billy balls above, add a bright pop of color. I also would love to incorporate rope accents.

For a subtle touch of the sea, I hope to find a lovely print online or in a vintage shop. Sailboats, anchors, and maps all make me think of New England vacations filled with swimming and exploring.

 And what hard-working girl would not want this stunning bath tub tray?

Sigh. Does your bathroom have a "theme"? Is it worth it for such a small space?
