Curtains…..yes or no?

Decorating Our House

Some help, please!

If you help me, I promise you won't have to suffer through anymore master bath photos! 

Curtains, yes or no? 

What do you think?

I can't decide!



I think the curtains are growing on me, but I'm just not sure!  I'd love to hear what you think!

And just for good measure……a few more photos of the bathroom, I'm in love with!   馃檪




She's come a long way, baby!


I'd love to hear your thoughts on the curtains!  Pretty please?

Also, if you aren't already a follower of my blog, I'd love you to become one! :)

    My vote is yes. It finishes it off. I would say if no curtains, maybe some trim around the window. I know you would love more work with trim! It looks great!

    I love the curtains! I think they tie in to the vanity so well and soften that window.
    I’m sure not getting sick of seeing pictures of your beautiful master bath! Keep posting them!

    Curtains, absolutely as it adds a lot of style to the room. They help to absorb sound and frame the window. What color is the rod? If it’s brass, spray it out to the brush nickle. You could even go with a rod that is perhaps a bit chunkier and or a darker metal finish. Then the rod would not be the focal point. I love your bathroom pics too! Thanks for sharing with us!

  8. Jennie - February 21, 2011 5:03 pm

    Yes. The curtains add a finished look to a beautiful room. Love your blog – thank you for sharing!

    My vote is yes. They add a certain amount of elegance & romance without being over-the-top. The bathroom looks beautiful.

    Love!! The board and batten is gorgeous. The curtains are pretty but what about making something that is just towards the top of the window? I love the wall color too. What color of paint is it?

  11. Ruth H. - February 25, 2011 3:27 pm

    Definite yes on the curtains! They really tie the dark brown from the vanity with the blue on the walls. If you are worried about the length, you could always hem the into valances.

  12. debbie - February 27, 2011 6:23 pm

    I say yes to the curtains…have you tried tie backs…maybe see how you like that look too. Thanks for joining my newbie party.

  13. Donnie - February 27, 2011 6:27 pm

    Uh Oh. I was thinking no. Sorry but I like the clean look especially with the white and wondered about a valence. I really don’t have great taste so I’m not sure you ought to listen to me though…lol…

  14. Amanda - February 27, 2011 7:00 pm

    Hmmm. I keep going back and forth! I love the pop of brown to accent your vanity/mirror, then I think maybe a simple white or sheer to keep it “clean,” since the rest of the bathroom has such a crisp look. I think either way you will be happy. The bathroom looks amazing! What blue is the paint? I just painted my bedroom Pacific by Pratt and Lambert. About to do my bathroom walls a dark chocolate and the ceiling the same blue from bedroom.

  15. Karen - February 27, 2011 7:08 pm

    Oh my Goodness your bathroom is to die for!! It is gorgeous no wonder your in love.The curtains add a nice pop of color to the space. I’m a new follower. I’d love it if you stopped by for a visit.

  16. Kimberly - February 28, 2011 6:29 am

    Your bathroom looks amazing! I like that window better without the curtains but either way looks great! Great job on the bathroom!!

  17. Daniella - February 28, 2011 7:46 am

    I think your bathroom is gorgeous!! The curtains look good, and it looks good without them. I can see why you can’t decide!!

    I love the curtains – but then I love fabric and I think it adds a nice, warm touch to the room. Your bathroom is beautiful. I’m jealous! I have a totally pink 1950’s bath right now that’s about 5′ x 5′ aka SMALL! You did a great job!

  19. Lori @ - April 8, 2011 6:06 am

    Yes on the curtains! It softens that side of the room and gives a balance to the brown on the sink side of the room. =) Can you email me and let me know where you got them!??!

  20. Inspire Me Heather - April 8, 2011 6:10 am

    Yes on the curtains – it ties in and balances with the colour of your mirror and cabinet! I just love the Sea Salt colour too, my dining room is the same colour and there are so many accent colours that go so well with it for decorating with the seasons – orange and red and chocolate brown are my favorites!

  21. Krys72599 - April 8, 2011 10:42 am

    My first visit and I’m commenting already!
    YES to the curtains!!!

  22. Judy - April 8, 2011 7:29 pm

    I think putting up some dark bamboo blinds would add texture and look great. You wouldn’t be “married” to curtains and it would be a little more “modern” than blinds. I’ve replaced all my blinds with the bamboo blinds and they look great with everything.
    Just my 2 cents!

  23. Jennifer - April 11, 2011 7:35 am

    I am new to your blog. Love the board and batten treatment and the Sea Salt paint (I just painted this color too!). I personally think the room looks cleaner without the drapes, but either way the room looks wonderful.

  24. Rondell - April 13, 2011 1:05 pm

    Hello, I found your blog on home tours and love your bathroom, myself I’d use a white sheer, maybe with in imprint(white on white) of a leaf or sea shells. I agree that the curtains finish the room but to me they are to heavy but that’s just me and my 2 cents worth:)
    Have a great day!

  25. SamiJ - April 13, 2011 1:08 pm

    Have you thought about getting shades that close from the bottom up?

  26. Nita@ModVintageLife - April 14, 2011 4:26 pm

    Yes on curtains but I think they need to be white.

  27. Andy Porter - April 15, 2011 9:06 am

    What a difference! It looks absolutely gorgeous and the curtains look great too!
    Thanks for sharing your room with us!

    I LOVE what you’ve done with your bathroom. It looks great! I really like the curtains too but not for that particular space. The wall is already visually broken in two by the board and batten so having a curtain that has 2 parts too (solid brown on top and the design on bottom) makes the space look too choppy and less serene. I would pick a curtain that is solid throughout or has a uniform pattern throughout. Great work!

  29. Cami - April 26, 2011 10:56 am

    I love the way your bathroom turned out!! It looks so good! In fact, you’ve inspired me to redo my bathroom! So, I’m wondering, how did you do your cabinets? Did you paint them or stain them? What kind of paint? Any tips would be GREATLY appreciated!!! I’m so excited!!! My email is THANK YOU!!!

  30. Shandon Smith - May 1, 2011 10:05 am

    If it were my bathroom (which I wish it were!), I would toss the drapes and add plantation shutters and trim. 馃檪

  31. Cathy - May 1, 2011 1:39 pm

    Love your bathroom! We want to do something similar. I definitely like the curtains more than the blinds, have you considered shutters?
    I was wondering, did you just frame your existing mirror, or get a new one? Our vanity (we tore it out) was similar to yours and our mirror was like your old one. I’m trying to decide if I want to have it framed or just donate it.

  32. toilet cubicles - May 30, 2011 9:57 pm

    I vote for no to curtains, instead you could use blinds with a different color so that your bathroom won’t look dull. And also, if you have a white painted bathroom I suggest you should use colored towels and other accessories to make it quite lovely but don’t overdo on putting designs.

  33. Rebecca - September 24, 2011 9:37 pm

    NOPE, Your bathroom looks SO classy/elegant now. I think the curtains make it look country bumpkin. I wouldn’t change a thing, you have done a marvelous job!

    Beautiful curtains shared here. I like all curtains. In my house there are many curtains according to it’s designs and shapes. I like your curtains with attractive pattern.

  35. Della Morris - May 2, 2012 9:42 pm

    Not loving the curtains so close to the tub. What about a natural fiber/woven shade in a color that ties in with the vanity and adds another texture?

  36. Shannon - October 23, 2012 6:17 am

    I love your bathroom! It’s almost the exact style that I am going for. Can I ask what color paint you use for your walls?
