Bathroom Makeover - Take 2

I finally decided on a paint color for my bathroom.  It took about 4 different samples and lots of searches on the computer before I made the final choice.  I started a Pinterest board called "decorating my bathroom" to pin all my ideas in one spot.  I've included here a  few before photos - you can visit  my blog post "My Bathroom Makeover - The Before for more before photos.

I went with the Sherwin Williams Tidewater although I had it mixed at Benjamin Moore.  Instead of using white for the ceiling - I saw a suggestion on-line - to use a lighter shade that coordinated with the wall color so I used the pale blue called glimmer on the same paint sample card as the Tidewater.


The beach print on the wall here is from a Etsy seller called Kelly Bermudez.  Here is the photo from her Etsy listing and the link to her nautical beach section on Etsy

Check out her shop for this and other reasonably priced reproductions of her original artwork.
I love her art work and I was blessed to have won this piece in a giveaway she hosted some time ago.   I just recently got the frame for it at Home Goods but I still plan to take it to Michael's to have them add a turquoise matting.

I had purchased a shower curtain which you can see in the before blog post but it was a somewhat busier print.  When I bought my towels I found this shower curtain which I just had to have.
I purchased both of these at home goods.

I need to come up with some ideas for these two walls -- I saw some interesting rectangular mirrors for the long wall at Home Goods which would look nice and I'd like to also find or make some kind of shelf - to put seashell or driftwood on. 

Whether you love or hate what I've done, I'd love to hear from you - please share your ideas for finishing touches.  I plan to paint the brown cabinets also but can't decide what color to do them or how to do it so I'm all ears for suggestions.
