Buy me a Shower Curtain
February 6, 2019 8:29 AM   Subscribe

I have a boring grey and white bathroom with white marble floors. I bought these cabinet knobs to jazz things up. What shower curtain should I get to go along with them? The only other decor in the room is photography from a trip to Tunisia so I guess I'm going for a Mediterranean or Moroccan type thing.

I don't particularly care how much it costs, as long as it's within the bounds of normalcy (i.e., no high end couture shower curtains, if such a thing even exists).

Something like this (a Moroccan trellis pattern) fits with your Moroccan/Mediterranean theme, but it's abstract enough that it won't smack someone over the head with Moroccan-ness. Without the photography and knobs, it's just a patterned shower curtain. We have something similar in white and gray. You can find them in a variety of colors, often quite affordably.

One thing I neglected to do when I bought a shower curtain was to buy a plastic liner. The cloth curtain did an adequate job keeping water off the bathroom floor, but the minerals in the water stained the bottom of the curtain, so I had to keep washing it. I eventually got a liner at Bed, Bath, & Beyond that seemed pricey, but did not require airing out like previous plastic liners I'd bought. Those liners gave off a really strong vinyl smell that made me put them outside for a week before I could use them. The BB&B liner didn't smell at all.

I like this? Beautiful pattern and contrasting color that kinda ties everything together, but soft and muted enough that they don't clash.

Another option. Pricey and maybe darker than you need, but the uniform pattern might actually not be as tiring on the eye after a while as my first choice. Love both though. And those cabinet pulls!

I have been fascinated for a while by the Ambesonne (and now there's plenty of knock-offs) photo-printed shower curtains - there's a bunch in these search results (they also have some great patterns), they're generally well-rated for quality, and I think they'd either look cool or create such a large optical illusion in a small bathroom that they'd be terrible.

I use shower curtains on our patio to block a weird line of sight to next door, and have been waffling over one like this or this for ages.

I love the one marsbar77 suggested (and I really like orange and grey together), but just in case you wanted some other options, there's this peacock, and a turquoise ikat, both of which go with this matching "Indochic" towel and accessory set.

If you're wanting to go in a brighter direction (based on pics of Tunisia from Google), it looks like Pier 1 has some of the best options I can find.

In particular, in relation to your cabinet knobs, I like these options: Sunset Stripe, Bright Floral, Watercolor Coral

I also like Green And Ivory Fiddle Leaf Fig from World Market.

By the way, I totally back up the suggestions to go bright, despite my choices. I just wouldn't want to take too much attention away from those gorgeous pulls, but yeah, I'd be itching for a bright, lush pattern.

One more, this from from Bed Bath & Beyond, Highline Stripe in Aqua

I've ordered this one (though in a smaller pattern size, I think), and apparently it's gorgeous (my sister has it). Another one I liked was this latticework one on Amazon UK.

Another one I ordered in this one; it seems it's currently unavailable on You can also find it at society6 (don't know this shop), though it seems much more expensive. They seem to have quite a large selection of Moroccan-themed shower curtains, if you dig around.

Depending on the colour scheme in your bathroom, this more geometrical one might be interesting, and I rather love these geographically-themed ones. These are on Etsy.

You can get one custom-made.
