I sometimes think that one reason I don't love the part of mid-century design that is considered a bit kitschy...like pink bathrooms...is that I'm a good bit older than many of my fellow bloggers and grew up in the Fifties. I can truly say, "Been there, done that. Had a pink bathroom," and I have never felt a desire to repeat that color scheme. I wasn't a pink kind of girl, even then.
That said, the house we're buying has a pink bathroom in the garage apartment. Since we've decided to Airbnb that space, we have made a decision to put our efforts into decorating it first, so we can start renting it right away. (Did I mention that I'm not a big fan of owls either?)

The way I see it, we can embrace the pink and go full-on kitsch with a shower curtain like this.

Or we could embrace the pink but forego the over-the-top whimsy, with a floral shower curtain like this.

Or we could play down the pink by choosing a shower curtain that is predominantly another color.

However, I'm leaning in the direction of a mix of strong colors on a white background, where the pale pink is almost an afterthought. My idea is to use a thick white waffle-weave cotton as the main shower curtain and swag a geometric print to the side (or make a valance out of the print). I would use thick white bath towels and turquoise accessories

My daughter, on the other hand, likes putting all the color on the wall, with this predominantly blue and green wallpaper, which has just a touch of pink, and using a white shower curtain.
I have a strong feeling that there are mood boards in my future. What's your favorite so far?
