When I was growing up I shared a room with my older sister Christen. We shared everything, even if she didn’t know it. We even shared a bed until I was somewhere in the double digits. We had a bathroom attached to our bedroom that was really basic. A couple sinks, formica counter-tops with wood trim, and forest green plush carpet. Yep. Carpet in a bathroom. It was completely functional and nothing more. Over the years we “decorated” it with spilled nail-polish and dripped hair-dye. I can understand now, as a parent, why decorating our bathroom fell on the priority list somewhere near cutting down the weeds along side our dirt road. I can see how it seemed like a pointless pursuit.
But now I’m all grown up. And still sharing the bathroom. Luckily I have boys and so I don’t see any nail polish decorating happening in the near future (disclaimer: I’m not against dudes wearing polish). So I get to decorate it however I’d like, er, I mean, however we’d like.
So if you’re a grownup who’d like to decorate your own bathroom (shared or non), check out these inspiring bathrooms to drool over and get those creative juices flowing.
