I love love love my pink bathroom. In fact, it is one of the reasons I wanted to buy our house. When I was growing up, my grandmother and grandfather had a house built about the same era as this one. The guest bath had pink tile, just like this one, with fabulous cabbage rose wallpaper. It was the essential shabby chic before there even was such a thing. I loved that bathroom, with the white wooden folding blinds over the window and a jar of shells that Grandad had brought back from the Pacific in WWII.
So, now I want to embellish on my pink bathroom (I've had friends suggest that I paint OVER my pink tiles. Insane people). Now, I'm not up for wallpaper, but I feel this bathroom seriously needs something else. Anybody have any suggestions? I don't really want to paint the walls a solid color, b/c with the pink tiles it just ends up being too much. And a patterned shower curtain makes the whole place seem tiny and claustrophobic. I want the bathroom to feel like this photo of Leslie Caron. I just cant think of anyone else who was more graceful and, well, French. Any thoughts?
