So, the boxes are packed and we're basically sitting around in Jersey counting down the minutes until the big move to Chicago. I'm so excited that all I can do is daydream about the new apartment. Here's the thing about the rectory*: the priests, while they kept the place immaculately neat, had some really weird taste in tile. Here's our master bathroom: brown tile on the walls, powder blue accents in the floor. Why? I don't know.
There are, of course, cool things about this bathroom. The tub is stoppered by a twisting mechanism that says "WASTE." I am in love with that faucet. There is a giant, built-in closet for storage right there in the bathroom, which is handy. But the colors! Hm.
As you may remember, He-Mouse and I go for primary colors, nice bright bold ones. We both really like mod-Mex. At first I thought maybe the solution was to keep the brown as an accent and do a bunch of different shades of blue--maybe something like this.
But I don't know, something about brown and blue really reminds me of freshman year of high school.
Then I started to think about letting the brown tile be a neutral, and just sort of powering forward back in to the brights of mod-Mex. What do you think? This shower curtain from Anthropologie would pick up the blue tile but incorporate bright primaries...
