With the impending move just a week away, and nowhere new to call “home” quite yet, anxiety has definitely set in. We’re leaving a house that we’ve created lasting memories in; over 6 years of memories. Three babies came home to this house. What started as a ho-hum house, has turned into a truly wonderful place to call home. As much as I probably would not have admitted it prior to our big decision to move, now that the end is so near, I am very sad to say goodbye.
With that said, and the budget that we’re working with in our quest for our new home, you could say I’ve been feeling a little frustrated! The homes that are in our budget are just so…. blah. Would I LOVE to purchase an older, circa 1850′s Village Colonial or Farmhouse? Sure! Could we afford it? Sure (they are actually pretty inexpensive & plentiful where we’re moving)! Is it practical, with four active little boys, who will need a neighborhood for bike-riding, making friends & a husband who is certainly NOT a DIY’er? Not really!
So that leaves me to turn to Pinterest, where I can conjure up some good old fashioned Pinspiration!
Let me show you my latest obsession… This bathroom! OMG, the curtains! I’d show you the rest of the house, but you might just roll over and die of shock.
But with the price tag on this house, the great family-friendly neighborhood, the forever-wild backyard & several other pro’s, I’m left to figure out just how to make it work… Well, painting the vanity white, tearing down the curtains & replacing the mirror are all no-brainers.
But how do I work with that NAVY tiled soaking tub? Pinterest to the rescue, here are some color combo’s and ideas that I am playing with in my head.
Clean neutral walls and some beautiful vintage floral curtains?
Pop some color in there with a bold print, framed in elegant gold?
Yellow and white always looks great with navy! This could work…
Adore everything about this nursery color palette & think it would work so well in the bathroom! The coral curtains and the gold-patterned accent wall especially!
What do you think? What would you do with that navy tiled bathroom? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
