The girls’ bathroom is also the main bathroom. What I wanted was to create a bright, fresh, kid-friendly bathroom without making it look like a princess fairy explosion. So I painted the walls a pretty mint green. But then when it came time to decorate, I got stuck. I didn’t want it to be too bright and pastel-y so I toned down the mint green walls with a neutral shower curtain and neutral decorations.
The result–major blah. It wasn’t bright, wasn’t neutral. Didn’t appeal to my girls, didn’t make sense to me and my husband. Just blah. Ever have one of those rooms? But something struck me. On the wall was one of Sophie’s drawings. And that got me thinking–what if the way to make it a kid-friendly bathroom was to turn it into an art gallery?
So I kept the mint green walls that we loved, removed the neutrals and turned the bathroom into an art gallery for my little budding artist, Sophie, with lots of black and white accents. It was perfect for my girls and everyone who visits loves it. Check it out!
