Summer Sundays - A Little Coastal for the Bathroom


This week I am joining The Tablescaper for her fun Summer Sundays party. Be sure to visit her and see all the wonderful summer ideas everyone has to share.

This is what our bathroom has looked like for a while, but I really wanted to bring a little bit of a coastal look in here since I have some coast going on in the bedroom.


I'm officially trying to only use what I have on hand, and since I didn't have any turquoise towels, I decided to use the lime green that I've had for years and since it's one of my new favorite colors, I just went with it. Out with the brown vase and feathers, and in with a few shells and candles.








Just another idea of where you can use a cloche. Don't forget the party on Friday.
See you there. Be sure to grab the button on my sidebar and spread the word. We always have the most fun ever.

Table Top Tuesday will be up on Monday evening. Hope you all join in for this fun meme too.

I am also linking to Metamorphosis Monday hosted by the gracious Susan @ Between Naps On The Porch.

  4. Oh Marty Sweetie...
    I love these colors and yes they definitely have the coastal charm.

    I love the use of the cloche in there with those lime green and brown colors. Your shell is so beautiful with the cameo type lady on it. I have never seen anything like that. It is strikingly beautiful. I thank you for sharing it today.

    Have a gorgeous day sweet friend. I will see you on Friday for the cloche party. I am spending the weekend searching for items of interest.

    Many hugs and much love, Sherry

  44. Well I think everything is better with seashells...so, I love the look! I put seashells in random spots all over the house, they always make me happy.

    Cloche party? Friday? Oh my, wonder if I can pull it together that quickly?

  45. Wow..Marty! Thats is beautiful and not you typical blue version of coastal. I love it! I just did a lighter design in my bathroom with teal, beige and white...I had a teal rug and towels but only purchased the new shower curtain for $6.99. I love that you used things already in your home. Beautiful job!
