Tan is the New Black

At least in my bathroom it is. It’s the only color that goes with the (how do I put this delicately…?) retro fixtures that we currently have. While pink and green look lovely together on Easter, it’s a little more difficult to make it look as splendid in a bathroom.

I decided last week that enough was enough, and that I was going to make the bathroom look like a “grown up bathroom”. My problem with decorating has always been that I pick up things to decorate here and there, and never figure out a plan for the room I’m decorating.

This time was different.  We already had tan and white bath towels that seemed to more or less go with the room so I wanted to build on that. I figured a few key accessories to go with what I already had would help tie the room together.

With the approval of Chris (and the pin number for the checking account!) I was on my merry way to Bed Bath and Beyond to get this project off the ground. I purchased a new shower curtain:

Tan is great!

A tooth brush holder:

Home Sweet Tooth Brush Home!

A soap dispenser that I apparently didn’t feel the need to take a picture of, and a soap dish that I did take a picture of:

I also got some new potpourri that smells like Vanilla Cake to take the place of the purple candle that no longer matched my put together bathroom.

And then of course I kept taking pictures of the same thing. Honestly, sometimes I just take it as a challenge to see how many different pictures of the same thing I can get.

Ok, Back to the point of this entry. Here’s the trashcan that I bought. Seriously, I matched EVERYTHING!

Overall, I’m starting to feel much better about the bathroom. I have towels, accessories, and nice potpourri. Now if only I had a floor that didn’t have a huge piece of 2×4 in the middle of it…..
