Fourth times a charm {shower curtains}

After trying out FOUR shower curtains and even considering making one, I have finally found the perfect curtain for our guest bathroom.

Who would have thought buying a shower curtain would be such a drama? Only in my world I tell ya.

The bathroom started out like this:


Just to refresh your memory, I bought a shower curtain that I loved from West Elm.

But once it arrived in the mail I wasn’t thrilled with the color. I thought it would be a bright yellow, not a citron color.

So I found a duvet at Target I liked and tried it out. If I liked it I’d alter it into a curtain.

Um… no. I really didn’t like this one at all!

The last time I talked about this curtain situation was in April. You guys were so helpful in convincing me that if I don’t love the West Elm one that I should return it and find one I really love.

So I took your advice and I returned the curtain. For the next 3 months I kept my eye out for a curtain I truly loved and I even considered making one instead. Why must I be so picky?!

I was hanging out at World Market last week and found this white waffle shower curtain.

I thought I’d love it so I brought it home and tried it out. Once again, I hated it. Mind you, this is now the 3rd curtain I’ve tried out.

So I headed back to World Market and exchanged it for one that was a little more bold than I’d usually go. I bought the Mosaic Shower Curtain from World Market for $29.99.

Once hung, it took about 2 seconds for me to decide I love it.

Seriously, I just love the pattern so much. Funny thing is, the primary color is the same yellowish citron that was in the striped West Elm curtain. But for some reason I love the way it looks in this pattern.

There’s just enough mix of other colors to make the curtain work in the room. All the other curtains just seemed too plain and boring. This one will truly work once I finish accessorizing the room, but even now I think it looks great.

From the foyer you see directly into the bathroom. This new curtain even works well with the yellow hallway.

I’m happy to say that this Great Shower Hunt of 2012 is finally over. I can’t believe how much trouble it was to find a curtain I like.

I have to say, World Market is quickly becoming one of my favorite stores. I’m especially smitten with all their furniture.

  1. Nice!

    Good pick…you give me hope to take my time, try things out and hold out for the right choice! : )

  2. LOVE!! So glad you finally found “the one.” It really looks great!

  3. Very pretty. I’ve had so many problems with liking shower curtains until I stumbled upon the idea of using actual window curtains. So now I only use those in mine, usually two pair because I like “fluffy.” I also buy the longest length – 84 inches – and hang them high. The aggravation comes with hanging an additional rod down lower for the liner but I keep the curtains closed so it works for me.

  4. I am with ya on the pickiness. Maybe we should start our own line of shower curtains. I ended up making my own, but still not thrilled. LOVE, LOVE the one you ended up with. Normally, I wouldn’t go for a “busy” pattern, but that one totally works…and rocks!

  5. I love it, but don’t you hate that they never make them long enough. I always add a stripe at the bottome with a coordinating color. Brown would look nice, or another color in the design. It really gives it a rich, finished look.

  6. Great choice. The color rocks and I think the pattern goes with the shelving. Kinda Moroccan vibe. The bathroom looks so so so much better than the yucky brown/gold whatever that was on the walls before. Can’t wait to see more.

  7. I’m picky too! But I absolutely love this curtain! I want to go get one for me now! Congrats on the search being over!

  8. I love that! Best one yet! Thank you for sharing. Would love it if you would share this at my Make it Pretty Monday party at The Dedicated House. Wishing you a grand day. Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse

  9. I really like the one you ultimately chose. The West Elm one was nice but the horizontal stripes didn’t help the room at all and, honestly, I think they would’ve made the hallway area outside the bathroom look shorter… almost claustrophobic. Your choice gives it a nice, roomy feel. Love it!

  10. Looks great. Besides the great print, this one also looks great because, based on the picture, of the multiple colors that match/coordinate it to the wall color.

  11. I Love the curtain! Where did you get the shelves?

  12. Love love love the shelves in your bathroom, they are so cute!

    Nice choice on the shower curtain

  13. It looks great! I’m happy your hunt is over 🙂 By the way, where did you get those cute glass jars displayed on your shelves?

  14. I actually liked the first one you chose (the horizontal stripes one), but the one you ended up going with looks great as well :). The other two were definitely a no-go lol

  15. I love your final choice! It is just perfect! Like you, I’m rediscovering World Market. I’m really loving their textiles these days…as much as I’m not really feeling my old favorite, Target. Anyway, your bathroom looks fabulous with the new shower curtain.
