So my bathroom has no window.
What would be a good theme for the shower curtains in rugs?
I don't want a dark color, and was thinking about a ocean theme or a yellow and white theme.
advice is welcomed
None of line really have a theme, just colours.

Upstairs is a greeny tan, towels, curtain and shower curtain are black. Garbage can & all the counter stuff are chrome.

Main floor is a chocolate brown with creme & burgundy accents.

Basement, the walls are a light blue, all the accents are blues & teals. It's been like that since I moved in and I hate it. I never go down there, so forget about it. I want the walls lime green though and all black accents. The adjoining room is a lot of black and green accents, so think it'll go well.

I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

I don't really do a theme in mine either. I have 2 Windows, high up, above the shower but the bathroom still seems relatively dark. The walls are a very light gray/blue. Actually more like white tinted with a hint of gray/blue. I have white subway tiles in the shower and as the back splash behind the sink and a 3 inch stripe of gray, cobalt, & sky blue & blue/gray mosaic tiles running thru those. Counters are white, sink is cobalt, floor is large gray rectangle tiles, the counters are white and the cabinets have a cranberry stain.

Normally I put down white bath mats and put up clear shower curtains. It helps filter the light better. I do keep it where I can throw up a different printed curtain if I want. Right now I have a white one with owls all over it. I was in the mood for a change. I could do owl when it wears out or go back to clear.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

I prbly wouldn't go all out with a theme, unless it's a little kids bathroom. Are you investing only in mats and a shower curtain? Or do you have money in the budget for paint or wallpaper & other items like vases, soap dispensers, framed art? I think you should Google cool bathroom images & post some you like for us to discuss! Lol

If you just want to update the shower curtain, take a trip to Bed, Bath & Beyond or similar & check out what they have on the shower curtain rack. If you see one you love, just pick up some coordinating mats etc to go with.

Yrs ago I had a small bathroom that was all white but had wallpaper with black&white large-scale drawings of topless Grecian type women. Clear curtain & black trashcan, black soap dish, black toothbrush holder, etc. No color but very dramatic & I got tons of compliments. (But I'm a black & white kinda person.)

I hope you show us pics of what you're considering & the end result!

We did our main bathroom earlier this year and it's all white apart from the floor tiles, blind and accessories, which are grey (no shower curtain as we have a glass door). I got bright blue towels to add some colour as it's a bit too stark tbh, but we have a massive window so it's very light anyway - if you have no window it might work quite well to lighten things up.

I would use reflective touches in a bathroom without a window: items with shine. It will help give a sense of light in a dark room.
mine was painted an odd shade of pale butter yellow, so i changed it to a shade called Peach Ash - a pale coral colour with a gray undertone.

it has almost no storage, so after years of dealing with a really bad vanity, i have bought the supplies to make a better one - a longer open vanity with shelving under a vessel sink.

and even though i have a glass stand-up shower, i made a curtain to go over the door in a lovely shade of dusty salmon with a tone-on-tone pattern of little squares.

I looked for a shower curtain I liked that went with my walls and floor (1950's black and white tile), and then decided to paint my walls a complimentary color.

I have almost this EXACT tile setup - floor and walls, but my bathroom is larger.

Then I bought this
and painted my walls that lighter blue.

Then I decided I needed black and white art, and I just loved having something that fit in the room, so I framed them and hung them above the toilet.
