Real Deal Teal

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.

Master Bathroom Macinack Island Green Window

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?

      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. 🙂


    1. Hi Janice!!

      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. 🙂


  1. 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!

    P.S. Your posts still don’t appear in my feed ( despite refreshing and even deleting and adding your site again.

    1. Hi Liz!

      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. 🙂
