Pretty in Pink Bathroom

My Pretty in Pink Bathroom.

Making the most of pink bathroom tiles.

If you’ve watched as many home decorating/real estate/DIY shows as I have you’ve surely come across an episode where a homeowner encounters a pink bathroom. And you can probably guess what’s coming next.

The homeowner opens the door, eyes widen, eyebrows raise, and the side of the lip stretches back. “No,” accompanied by a throaty laugh is usually the first words out of his or her mouth. And then the realtor or contractor assures them it can be painted, it can be renovated, it can be masked.

So you can also, probably, imagine my reaction when I was looking for an apartment, opened the door to this bathroom, and encountered pink tiles.

Eyes widened, eyebrows raised, the sides of both lips stretched up into a smile.

“I’ll take it.”

And then I assured myself that the pink tiles could certainly be highlighted.

Pretty in Pink Bathroom - Pink Tiles in My Bathroom

The bathroom in my new place has old pink tiles and I did more than embrace them.

OK, so I may have gone overboard in that way that I go overboard with everything: pink shower curtain, pink bathmat, pink towels. But, if you haven’t noticed, pink is my favorite color.

There’s a little green in there too though, to balance everything out. OK, not really, it’s there because I always previously had green things for my bathroom. But it works together.

By now I have everything in my apartment unpacked, but that doesn’t mean much. I have very little furniture so in most of the rooms there are just piles of things waiting to be put away once I can afford to buy things to put them away in.

So my pretty pink bathroom is pretty much the only room that’s finished for now.

Until, I guess, I find a few more pink things to stuff in there.

What do you think of my pretty pink bathroom? Could you embrace pink tiles in your bathroom?

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.

    I really, really love what you’ve done with the space. Most people would have bitched or ripped the tiles down but you’ve embraced and accented them beautifully. Love this!! 🙂
