Aside from the kitchen, my favorite spot within my home is the bathroom. Why, you ask? Because I can shut the door…and most importantly, lock it! I escape from my ‘real life’ responsibilities—my job, my spouse, my kids and all of the crucial life or death decisions only a mom is equipped to solve. You know: “What’s for dinner?” “Did you walk the dog?” “Where are my house keys?” “What should I do with my dishes if the dishwasher is broken?” Sound familiar?
When I first moved into my home I spent so much time obsessing about the bathroom paint color, subway tiles vs. mosaic, mirrored sconces vs. a bar-style vanity light—but I completely overlooked something as simple as the shower curtain and how it greatly affects the look and feel of the space. I know, I know it sounds boring AF, but the truth is, you can make a statement with your shower curtain in a way that is classic and timeless. But just how do you choose a one that you won't hate in a few months? That’s where we come in.
