Updating The Decor-Bathroom

I haven't been totally in love with our bathroom ever since we painted it a year ago. The orange shower curtain wasn't doing anything for me anymore. It was dark and not the look I was going for. I saw on someone's blog the cutest shower curtain with branches and birds on it and I fell in love. Well, as it turns out, it is no longer in stores anymore :(. So I was on the hunt for a new shower curtain. I found this one for $40 at Urban Outfitters, but really, I did not want to pay that much for a shower curtain so I was on the hunt! I ended up finding the exact one at Bed Bath and Beyond (score! I got to use a 20% off coupon!) and got it for around $30 (still a little more than I wanted to spend but I was in love!). You can see the old, dark, curtain here. Now, on to the new look..


So much better right?! I think it really brightens up the room. Now here is the part where I need your help. See those painting on the right? They do not match anymore. I am having the hardest time figuring out what to replace them with. I was thinking of another painting/picture, but of what I'm not sure. I want to keep the organic sort of feeling going. What thoughts do you have? I would really like to get something off etsy.com, so do you know of any shops that I could find something great?! Please leave me your comments!

It looks great! As for the prints on the wall...to go along with the new shower curtain I'd try and find maybe a decal or something with the same type of tree with branches in white. It would be like the opposite of the shower curtain with the brown wall as the background and the white tree over the paint.

Or, if you could find leaf shadow boxes (google and a ton pop up) that would be cool, too.

Love the new shower curtain!

As for the prints, what immediately came to mind for me is some prints of birds on brances. Maybe something similar to the original curtain you fell in love with?

The leaf shadow boxes idea is cool, especially if you stick with brown-tones in the leaves.
