My ceiling has those lattice boards painted hunter green with stained wood for the border and the strips where the lattice meets.
I have a shelf over my medicine Cabinet with a flower pot with fake grape vines that are trailed up all thru the ceiling with green and purple grapes hanging.

My tiles are all almond on almond muted stripe and the bowl and sink and tub are the same neutral color, and the floor is stained a dark jacobean diagnol wood plank, as are all my doors in the apartment. I have fancy towels on the wall, as I am old school and it gives it color, along with the scatter rug and all the cups and the like. The theme is the rubbed oiled brionze.


On top of my toilet tank I have nic nacs and a lamp, which I keep on all night long and make the bathroom illumiate without having to put the overhead light on and wake up the dead. It also looks nice when company comes so they don't have to fumble for the light switch.

the window is big and i open it from the top and when i am in the shower I feel like I am taking a shower outdoors and i can see the sky ( Im on the 4th floor) and feel the air blow in.
Just curious....how does a lamp on the back of the toilet work? Aren't you afraid it will fall into the toilet, or get bumped off & broken?

We keep a box of Kleenex on the toilet tank.
It has never fallen in; it has never got bumped off & broken.

I would think the same would be true of a lamp or any other object.


(trying to picture HOW anything could really fall in.....)

NO, it fits perfectly and there is a wall on back of the toilet and to the right of the toilet. So far it has never fallen off in all the years it has been there. I have to learn how to post pictures.

Good for you! You sound as if you have made your house your home.

My home is a work in progress, but so far I like my living area the best. People often remark on it in a positive way. I have deliberately worked on aesthetics and comfort. I want every chair in my house to be comfortable. I have hung pleasant art on the walls, and added book shelves. I don't feel that the room has reached its potential totally, but I like being in it and DH and I spend a lot of time there.
