When I decided to paint the tub and bathroom walls Wrought Iron, I knew I had to add color with accessories. I’m too much of a color lover to have a completely neutral space. One big addition of color is in curtain form.
Boom, teal curtains. With the World Market curtains off the table, I searched for other teal curtains. With zero luck. So I took to the fabric stores. I’ve used this same linen blend fabric for pillows and loved it, so that’s what I ended up with. Also, because the tub in now in place of part of the vanity, I can hang the curtains wider that I had before.
Sewing the panels was a similar process to our living room curtains. Rather than adding ribbon back tabs, I kept a rod pocket. Other than that, same deal. This bright burst is just what my color craving heart desired.
And looks especially striking against the dark walls, if I do say so myself. (Don’t mind the outlet, we have to change it out for a white one.)
Because the fabric isn’t thick or stiff, the panels hang nicely behind the tub. We can easily close the curtains for privacy, too.
I love how accessories can take a room from basic to you. Which is why I’ve already started hanging art and shopping the house for the perfect pairings. What do you think of the bright curtains? Do you prefer neutral spaces, or color filled rooms?

Like you, I prefer to do neutral spaces with pops of color. It makes it easier to change things up when I get bored. 🙂
Totally, then I don’t have to repaint, either. 😉
My gah girl that is gorgeous! The colors are perfection together! The panels look amazing in there and don’t even get me started on that tub!
Ha, I’m pretty excited about it, too. Can’t stop wandering in, just to look at it. Especially because it’s so different that the starting point. Come on over and we can stare together. 🙂
Love the pop of color!
Thanks, Heidi! I’m loving it, too. Can’t wait to add more throughout the room.
Girl, you got your groove back. Love what you’ve done. All of it. Every last thing! 🙂
Emily, I literally laughed at your comment. Hi, my name is Stella and I got my groove back. 🙂
I love that pop of color! I used a similar pop in our neutral master bath. I usually start neutral and add pops of color. As Kraesmom said, it’s easier to change out!
I totally agree, so easy to swap out accessories. And they can still make a big impact.
Holy smokes – that TUB is amazing! Love all the details in this room!
Aww, thanks, Mary! I’m pretty smitten, too. 🙂
Oh you made me gasp, I couldn’t click over fast enough! So gorgeous!
Ha, thank you so much, Julia!
oh wowzers this looks SO good with the rest of the room. Teal was the right choice. i really really love this.
Hi Lets Just Build a House,
Thanks!! I really, really, love the curtains, too.
I looove the color comb…it’s one of my favorites!! Looks beautiful!
Mine, too. I’m always drawen to blue-greens. So happy with the look!
It looks soooo good! I love the dark wall with those drapes, and all the natural light. Love it!
Thanks, Judith!! You’re so sweet. I’m love the bright color against the dark walls, too. 🙂
Looks so fantastic! I have wrought iron in my living room and it is SUCH a rich, deep colour. However…instead of a white outlet, please paint it with the wrought iron so it disappears! 🙂
It really is such a nice, rich color. Feels very warm, even when it’s a cool, dark color. That outlet is usually tucked behind the curtain, so hopefully it’s not noticeable. But, I would love to get clear outlet covers to paint the insides Wrought Iron. So just the outlet or switch is white. 🙂
You’ve probably mentioned it already but…do you plan on painting the window casings? It might just be my personal preference but I feel like it would make the space feel much more cohesive and not distract from all of the beautiful elements in the room?
Looks like the bathroom is almost done! Congrats!

We hope to replace the entire window this summer with a white vinyl one. At that point, we’ll replace the trim around the window, so this white trim is temporary. I’ll admit, I was too lazy to paint the whole window because it won’t be here forever. But I might paint it soon, because I don’t like that it is different. 🙂
I have no clue why bloglovin isn’t working properly. I’ll dig deeper. 🙂
I love how your bathroom turned out. Those colors are so inviting.
Aww, thanks, Wendy W! I’m so excited with the way it’s shaping up. 🙂
