DH and I are buying our first house--yay!

So we have an interesting bathroom. The tile is in really good shape and the floors are in good shape too so there isnt really a need to replace them but they seem to clash. what can I do to make it look cute? I could do a theme or I was thinking of adding some nice framed black and white art/photography(though there isnt much wall space).  I want it to look nice (we have some brushed stainless steel stuff) -- please dont suggest pink flamingos and i dont want it to have a 50s theme either.  Smiley we are planning on replacing the light fixtures but any other suggestions would be appreciated!

This is when you first enter the bathroom, to the left of the sink.

I love pink black and white together. I always think of Paris. chanel and poodles and of course the eiffel tower. Maybe you could do some kind of glam Parisian theme...through towels, accessories, pics, if you can (not sure because of the tile) paint an outline of the tower on a wall Here's an inspiration pic, to give you an idea...It might be too girly for your husband, but then again probably anything you do with the pink would be too girly  Wink

I was going to suggest sort of the same thing, my friend has her bathroom done in pink and her shower curtain and all her accessories have like shoes and purses and stuff on it, with eiffel towers, etc. that would be really girly though Undecided

Looking to google I found this: All you would really have to do is paint the walls a creamier color and add the artwork and accessories:

I was off to save the world....until I was distracted by something shiny.

I was thinking maybe painting the walls a light pink and have thin black stripes of paint going from top to bottom..I say thin so its not over welming but brings it more together. and I like the idea of black and white photos maybe to go around. And maybe stencil some designs on to some of the tiles.

I have 50's tile in my kitchen(green & black).  I played up the black with black and white photos, black picture frames, plants in black pots, etc.  That seemed to class it up because 50's isn't my style either.  You could try working with the black instead of the pink, maybe go for an asian theme?

My god, its gorgeus! All it needs is new light fixtures with either pink or black. Black with pink trim? DONT get rid of the  pink and black or the light blue wall. Ditch the floor. Paint the window casing black. Get a pink center for your Tp holder just for the contrast. the cabinate would be very hot if it were solid black with pink. Paint the sink alcove blue. I would go with a blue, black, pink theme.

Vintage boudoir/pin-up framed art would look cute and be kind of cheeky for a bathroom. Smiley
