Dear AT,

We're moving next week into an apartment with one small problem: A very long, very narrow, tunnel-like bathroom.

I have NO idea how to decorate it!

It's painted a taupe-y brown right now, and I already know that has to go.

I was thinking of painting it light blue to make it feel airier.

What do I do for a shower curtain and mat?

Is blue/white/chrome/bamboo too boring?

The first thing you see when you walk in is the toilet.

In fact, because it's so narrow, it's the ONLY thing you see practically...

How do I detract from it?

The picture I'm submitting is not of the actual bathroom in question: there is no tile to contend with, thankfully, and I don't remember there being a window above the loo.

Other than that, it's pretty much what it looks like...

Thanks! Meenasyaz
