Creating a cozy hearth for the family
In the bathroom, the shower curtain is king of décor. Whether you opt for a lively patterned curtain or a solid neutral, this one piece sets the mood for your bathroom’s design. From it you can orchestrate an entire decorating scheme, drawing one paint color for the walls, another color for the towels as well as the general look and feel of the room. Finding an organic cotton or hemp shower curtain isn’t difficult. Finding an organic cotton shower curtain that comes in a color other than white or beige? That’s a bit more of a challenge. If you want an eco-friendly shower curtain with a personality, check out these options.
