To Hate Nautical Bathrooms?!!!

Have these people got no imagination? "Well, a bathroom has water in the sea...". Cold blue paint, bits of fishing net, depressed looking dried starfish, crappy model of a lighthouse, pictures of boats like the ones that you see in their thousands in car boot sales and pub walls. Go with the herd, eh?
If you have a seaside themed bathroom you have no taste. I bet Darth Vader has a nautical bathroom. He bobs around in his bath full of Matey bubbles using his loofa like a lightsabre imagining that he's floating somewhere off Weymouth.
Does your collection of shells remind you of your holidays? Shells are secreted by tasty, slimy, bogey looking animals and when they die you pick up what's left and stick them on you windowsills. Classy. If I were to do that with sheep skulls I'd get called weird.
Please redecorate your boring bathrooms immediately.

YANBU, I hate clutter in bathrooms. If you can't think of something original to put in your bahroom, leave it plain and uncluttered.
Is this going to be a new twigs with fairy lights thread? grin

I live by the sea and even I don't have a nautical bathroom. One wall is painted alternate white and sagey green stripes (wood panels if you see what I mean) which someone once likened to a beach hut... hmm

YANBU. Contrived shite. I hate themed rooms generally.

I like a Scandinavian themed bathroom, with lots of varnished pine. Cosy.

Yanbu. I don't get the need for clutter in a bathroom (candles, figures, shells, fancy bits of trees).

My mum used to have one, then my sister brought home a Lurcher puppy and he ate most of the starfish grin, he also ate the twigs and crap. So he thinks YANBU.

My bathroom was black and white until all the tiles fell off the wall and rudely attacked me whilst I was singing along to Pink in the shower. That'll learn me for singing in the shower grin, Now it just looks grotty and half finished.

<note to self: sort out tiles before sister brings around relatively new boyf for the the weekend>

I have always thought this!!! But never ranted out loud, just in case.

<sags in relief at being right>

Mind you I am also not overly keen on hotel like bathrooms, those that resemble a spa, with beige tiles.

I have a mildly nautical bathroom!

its a rented house with white tiles with BLUE starfish on them. So I have one of those glass blue balls in the net thingys, some blue and white polka storage boxes and a little white ravaged looking boat things. My daughter half inched all the shells! grin

YA soooooo NBU - I loathe nautical bathrooms! Our bathroom is painted a horrible blue, has been since we moved in - is not otherwise conspicuously nautical, but even having it blue is too much for me and I can't wait to change it.

Do you mean like mine, OP? Alternative view Granted its more under the sea than nautical, but that would be splitting hairs...

Deflatedballoonbelly Wed 05-Oct-11 20:02:56

Mofo, dont you have an Elvis loo seat?

Vivipru, loving the avocado!

ZillionChocolate Wed 05-Oct-11 20:03:24

I hate dirty bathrooms, people can decorate them however they like.

(Would like to see photos of the Elvis bathroom)

ViviPru Wed 05-Oct-11 20:03:32

Oh, Riiight.

that makes it seem so much better... grin

I have green frogs on the tiles in my downstairs loo blush

Awomancalledhorse Wed 05-Oct-11 20:07:30

I have this lightpull. My MIL hates it, I am bored of it...but more importantly my MIL HATES it. It stays. grin

TiggyD Wed 05-Oct-11 20:12:55

Deflatedballoonbelly It's rented. You're excused.

I have two vintage photographs of Whitby on my bathroom wall. I thought they were lovely, but now I'm wondering if they are naff. I live beside the sea if that's any excuse - though not at Whitby.
