Navy or Maroon

Navy or Maroon

Slowly, we are making it to Friday. I wish today was Friday and them my Kristin would be coming to see me TODAY…but no…Friday is not today, it is tomorrow. I guess that’s okay becuase I really need to get some work done in the house since I got absolutely NOTHING done yesterday. Seriously, I got off work later than anticipated, drove in the rain to spend far too much time in Target, got home STARVING, had a glass of wine, made dinner {for one}, ate, collapsed on the couch while Maggie tried to play tug-o-war with me and proceeded to pass out at 8:30pm while watching a re-run of Toddlers and Tiaras. No lie. {P.S. Kristin I PROMISE I’ll call you today…sorry I’m a jerk.}

Anyways…on to what I really want to talk about today. I need some help because I can’t decide exactly how I want to decorate my downstairs guest bathroom. Today it is white…very white. It’s crisp and clean with no decoration except for a “G” towel hook which is also white. When my parents came over this weekend, my mom mentioned that it would look pretty with navy as the accent color and potentially some nautical details. I loved this idea. Then she threw me for a loop and decided to give me another idea.

The entryway to our home is kind of Texan and rustic with a sign that says ‘Howdy Y’all’, hooks that say Howdy, a ‘Welcome to the Gougler’s’ sign on a piece of wood from the rodeo, you get the picture. Her new idea was to continue this theme into the bathroom and use maroon {Texas A&M} as the accent. Any thoughts?

Here is what the bathroom looks like today:

On the opposite wall is a white medicine cabinet. The white ‘G’ hook is now to the left of the mirror.


It’s a pretty simple space, but I definitely want to spice it up.

Now let’s talk about my NAVY ideas:

 Now on to MAROON:

{Source} I like the wrought iron and the Texas Star. I would add in some Aggie decor.


{Source} We would definitely need a new piece of Benjamin Knox’s Aggie artwork!

I would have decorative maroon accent towels along with some wrought iron/Texas Aggie artwork. It would not be overly Texas just a little country chic similar to our entryway.

Here is something similar to what I’m thinking about getting for the bathroom to store towels and place decor on the top!

{Source} I like the idea of glass doors because the towels I buy will be either navy or maroon and the color will pop through!

Any thoughts? Navy or Maroon??? Nautical or Rustic???

I need your help. I like both ideas so I won’t be offended if you dislike either. Any other ideas for what I could do with this space? I’m up for ideas! Thanks in advance for your help. I need it.

Until next time…
With love and God bless,
