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?
