where have all the good looking shower curtains gone?

I ask this question because in my search over the last few weeks for a cool, non-generic candidate I have found .... nothing. Not a single shower curtain that didn't feel like a supreme concession in the battle that is my search. Ugly, mediocre, humdrum options abound. Anything cool? Anything worth the effort that Dima and I have put into remodeling the bathroom. No.

Another question. Does every, and I'll be generous here, does every, say, 25th bathroom in the United states look exactly the same? I'm mean you could probably vary it based on fixtures, lights, etc. But the one dominant element in every bathroom is the shower curtain and there's a 25 option pool that the entire country is purchasing from. Nothing interesting out there, people. Nada.

Of course I guess I could be missing out on some shower curtain shopping Mecca, though I doubt it. (Maybe, I'll try that: www.showercurtainmecca.com. Nope.) I mean look at the canvas we have to work with. Our new bathroom looks great! (Minus the fact that we haven't reinstalled the sink and toilet, or rehung the door.) Do I want to saddle it with a pedestrian-looking shower curtain. Certainly not. Can you help me out people? Where do you buy a good looking shower curtain?

Hey, thanks for the link. I think the overall coolness of your tile floor and superior fixtures obviates the need for a cool shower curtain, though.

Print or silkscreen an image of one of Dima's paintings on a solid color shower curtain? That would be cool. And unique.

That's just it. I really feel like a dull shower curtain would bring down the coolness factor. It's kind of like wearing Uggs with a red carpet dress. It's just not right. And BTW, I've really got to find a way to use the word "obviate" more often in everyday conversation. I feel like I'm not living up to my 600 points on freerice.org.

I made my shower curtain. Irritated by the selection I took some very nice linen that someone gave me in Belarus and made a curtain. It wasn't super special, but it was unique. I just used a clear cheap curtain as an inner layer to protect the handmade curtain.

use a queen sheet that you love, some clip hooks, and a vinyl liner and DIY!
