The Farmhouse Kids’ Bathroom Deep Dive – The 8 Fabrics I Considered For The Bathtub Nook Curtains

The lavatory reveal is approaching Monday, however not with out me needing to check out eight completely different material choices for our completely pointless however so cute tub area of interest. I can say, nearly unequivocally that I really like material greater than most design parts. There are limitless patterns and colours and for probably the most half, it’s tremendous non-committal and versatile (in addition to upholstering your couch, as an illustration). I began my profession styling completely for magazines and for no matter motive I discovered myself within the material district in New York each week (shout to Temper and M & J, if they’re nonetheless round). So my material assortment is LARGE and for interiors, I completely don’t simply keep on with “decorator” or “house” materials (I’d for upholstery, clearly, however not for just about the rest). Usually the style materials are extra attention-grabbing and enjoyable. So between what I already had and a visit to a couple native material shops I discovered at least EIGHT choices that I assumed might work.

As you possibly can see the bathtub stayed within the place that it was initially however we designed and framed it out this little area of interest largely to place this curtain concept. I suppose I simply thought it might be enjoyable and playful and a possibility so as to add coloration and sample (once more in a non-permanent means – so I might have extra enjoyable with it). These photographs are earlier than we painted the white to match the white of the tile 🙂

At first, I attempted simply white, and it was candy, however undoubtedly low impression. It felt like I used to be lacking a possibility to be extra enjoyable – particularly for a children’ tub.

Virtually all of those had been actual contenders. There wasn’t ANY that we had been like “dangerous, no, take it away”. All of them did one thing completely completely different to the room. Let’s dissect…

Choice #1: Massive-Scale Inexperienced Damask

Iphone photographs coming at you. I favored this one SO MUCH. It immediately made the lavatory extra attention-grabbing and it definitely labored color-wise. The size of the damask regarded so good with the tile – contrasting with out being too competing. However we didn’t cease there…

I really like a ball fringe or tassel fringe quite a bit so I grabbed a couple of samples (quarter yards) to play with. Admittedly, I wasn’t very impressed with the native choice (New York and LA each have shops full of 1 million trim choices and it’s extremely enjoyable and galvanizing…however Portland was undoubtedly missing or perhaps I simply don’t know the place to go but). A few of these materials wished fringe, some didn’t. The extra ornamental/patterned materials regarded cute with them but it surely certain did go old-world-fancy actually quick (so much less Scandi farmhouse, which is completely effective, however it’s important to know you take it in a distinct course).

Choice #2: White, However Make It Particular

I actually favored the white in right here – calming and easy, and had it been our toilet I might need continued to work with this vibe (washed linen, tassel fringe, and so on) but it surely did kinda bore me for a children’ tub.

The gold tassel fringe regarded the very best, although, and actually pulled within the faucet brass.

It could possibly be pulled again with a tie, making a cute enjoyable form, too. These had been simply two white linen tablecloths that I had (they didn’t match which you couldn’t inform).

Choice #3: White, However Make It Particular (With A Texture Sample)

I additionally cherished this Swiss dot material, which was so candy in particular person (and eccentric) however once more, fairly darn low impression. It was additionally so skinny that it might have to be professionally sewn to make sure that it didn’t look messy and haphazard.

Choice #4: Daring Pink And Inexperienced Floral

Nicely, that basically modified the vibe, didn’t it? Birdie LOVED this one and actually so did we!! However I don’t assume the lavatory was sufficiently big (nor was the area of interest) to deal with this a lot material in such a big scale.

Choice #5: Plaid + #6: Gold Stripe

Each of those had been actual contenders at first. The inexperienced plaid felt acceptable (I feel it was simply shirting materials), however a bit of on the protected facet. Then the gold and white was so thrilling however very “GO DUCKS” subsequent to the inexperienced tile.

Choice #7: Candy Floral With Inexperienced And Butterflies

This one was a last-minute add within the material retailer. I didn’t LOVE LOVE the material by itself – a bit of too fundamental/candy for me (however I could possibly be biased as a result of it was an affordable material so perhaps if I had discovered it classic I would love it much more?). However it really labored very well! The inexperienced regarded good and it’s exhausting to see however there are additionally gold butterflies.

If we had gone with this one I’d def add the ball fringe or tassel fringe – it wanted extra type to make it cool sufficient (IMHO). Birdie additionally LOVED this material and desires to stitch pillows out of it (their stitching interest remains to be in full swing, BTW – y’all we now have SO MANY KID-SEWN PILLOWS).

Choice #8: Massive Scale Teal Gingham

After we put this one up Gretchen and I each cherished it. It felt like the correct vibe (Scandi farmhouse) however nonetheless whimsical and definitely not boring.

It was a “house” material and on the costlier facet than the remainder of the materials (however nonetheless coming in at $15/yard and we wanted six yards).

Down To Two…

We knew that this material would change the remainder of the styling of the area – and whereas these aren’t loopy completely different they definitely change the temper/vibe. While you see the complete reveal you’ll see what we selected on Monday! So in case you love curtain porn and wish to see this entire area styled out, set your calendars/alarm 🙂
