[reader request]: Shared Kids' Bathroom

Dolores has an exciting decorating adventure ahead of her. (At least I think it's exciting!) Her daughters' girly girl bathroom now must make room for one more, and that one more is a boy! No more pink shower curtain! Here's Dolores' wish list:

1)Nothing too girly or too boyish
2)A room that can grow with her kids

My suggestions? Glad you asked: It's all about the color palette and the incorporation of prints. The tone needs to be fun, but not too young. A pale, subtle blue is one of my favorite hues for a bathroom, because I like the bathroom to feel light and bright. I painted my mom's grandkids' bathroom Silver Sage from Restoration Hardware. I have used this color a lot. It's one of my favorites. You can pair SO many colors with a pale blue: greens, yellow, orange, pink, and even red (my scary color). The wall color should act as a neutral in the room, then have fun with it! Add color and prints. Keep your space fresh and fun. Here are some inspiration photos that I am absolutely dying over. Let me know what you think.

  3. I love your mom's bathroom! I can't believe I missed that post. And I agree with your pale blue ideas. Nice choices for bathrooms.
