My bathroom is a bit boring. It has beige walls, white and brass fixtures, and beige carpet (yes...carpet). When we moved in, we didn't want to bother with painting, so the walls have stayed beige. (And we didn't have the resources to redo the flooring--though I'd like to one day. Carpet in a bathroom is not my favorite.)
I tried to bring in some color with towels and things, and for the last 4 1/2 years, it's worked fine. But, it was starting to get to me, all that beige. I still didn't want to paint, but I needed some more color. So, I made a valance for the window.
So, now the open towel storage brings in a bit more color, and I have more room in my linen closet now that I'm storing some towels in the bathroom instead of the linen closet! I'm liking my mini-makeover. It makes my bathroom a bit less boring. :)
