Going Wild with Coastal Wallpaper in the Bathroom

Here are a few wild ideas for your bathroom walls! From wallpaper to postcards.

Flamingo Bathroom
I stumbled across this Bathroom when I was browsing DIY-Guides, and I think pink has never looked better. The wading flamingo wallpaper by Cole and Son is so much fun, so is the freestanding tub!


Seashell Wallpaper
A year ago I published Falling for Nautical Wallpaper and the trend seems to continue. And I can't think of a better space to go wild with wallpaper and/or a theme than a small bathroom! Especially if you have a second bathroom or a powder room. Image via Florida Design Magazine.

Map Wallpaper
Many people stick maps to the walls. Via House to Home.

Postcard Wallpaper
Others paste postcards to the wall, or Decoupage. Seen at Coastal Living.

Beach Mural
Or how about creating palmy view with a Beach Mural. Let your imagination run wild!

Oh my - can you imagine having that last bathroom in your very own home?! I would LOVE that. And I love the map on the wall in one of the middle images. So freaking cool - I'd love to do that in my own house one day. Great post!

I fell in love with the Flamingo wallpaper first, then I saw the seashell paper and now I can't decide which I love better! They are both amazing and I would love to have either one. BUT, that pink footed tub is adorable. I can just imagine it filled with bubbles.

I love all of these murals. I wish they were more in my price range and that my landlord would allow it. I think I would get TRunk Bay in the USVI done in my bedroom. :)

The Flamingo wallpaper is so fun. I think Maps on walls are great and surprisingly handy with growing kids I'd imagine, for homework.

I had wallpaper in houses for many years. I think I'm done with it. This house has "virgin" walls and I'm sticking with paint. It is so much easier to change my mind!

I would have to go with the flamingos and the hot pink bathtub! You couldn't feel sad standing in that bathroom!

Fun !
Sure makes a feature out of the smallest room in the house. Those pink birds almost have me wanting to move to Florida to have an excuse to enjoy them on the walls.
