After switching it out for something more light and airy, I knew I was on the right track to achieving the calming bathroom of my dreams.
I combined a few decor favorites from my last apartment and added a few new things too:
- Shower curtain (already mentioned above)
- Two bathmats, one for in front of the tub and another for in front of the sink. (Tootsies on the cold tile is not fun)
- Silver magnifying mirror
- Qtip holder in a vibrant blue glass
- Blue wooden frame for art
The blue frame hung vacant for a while as I searched for something worthy. I thought about creating something myself to match the coastal decor I already had going on - a framed postcard from a trip to Nantucket, a glass vase filled with the remains of my smashed terrarium, and a couple other odds and ends.
But it wasn't until I stumbled across this image on Etsy that I knew I'd found the winner, and surprisingly it had nothing to do with the ocean.
It's a print of the 1891 patent for toilet paper! Not only is it funny (in my opinion), it's also interesting (also my opinion). I opted for the parchment paper look and purchased from Etsy's Patent Prints for $7.00. The print now happily resides in the blue frame above the toilet - which hopefully amuses our guests as much as it amuses me.

If you've done something unexpected and quirky in your bathroom or home I would love to hear more about it. Feel free to comment or reach out.
Have a great weekend!
