I know how much I enjoy everyone's pictures so wanted to return the favor. I did some refreshing of our master bath. I kept the tub, tile floor, light fixtures, mirrors and cabinets. I replaced the counters, sinks, faucets, tub surround and window blinds. We also repainted. Here is a link to more pictures.

Thanks for the kind comments. We were both musing last night that it feels like it is missing something. We're not sure what. My husband thought maybe a bamboo plant. I haven't decided on the towel color yet as I've tried a few and nothing looked right. If there are any decorating suggestions I would love to hear them.

I was thinking of putting a black tori gate on the wall behind the tub. When I was in Japan I loved how the tori gates rose out of the water.

I didn't put the link in right so it wasn't click able. Here it is again:

Very, very nice! It is a very tranquil space, well done. A bamboo plant or a bonsai would look great.

I think some terra cotta orange towels would compliment your river rock and granite and look fabulous with your blue tile.

This room has some similar color tones as yours (although I don't like it as well!)...

I love your creativity... the mosaics around your other bathroom door are so cool!

*Edited to say terra cotta orange TOWELS, not tiles!

Thanks for the pic! I have an old set of towels in a peach that I didn't try until I saw your pic. I just put them in there and I like it. The buds on the cherry tree decal are peach so if I can get something to match those I think it will all go together nicely.

It has been very interesting with it being so serene. When you walk in the room you can feel your blood pressure drop and it is taking a bit of getting used to.

Treasuretheday,

You're suggestion was excellent. I hadn't tried anything in the red/orange family and it turned out to be just the thing. We choose brick red (with a slight orange tint, sort of like rust) towels from Sears. They set things off perfectly. Thanks!

I think they look perfect in your room! And that toothbrush holder was a great find too.
