Even if the art isn’t created specifically for children, bright hues will capture their attention. Candy colors take center stage in Pastel Beach Umbrellas, also by Gray Malin:
If you’re on a tight budget, check sites such as Society6 for affordable, stylish artwork. This overhead shoreline shot and this aerial photo of beachgoers channel a similar vibe to the gorgeous featured photos above.
Since we’re talking about beachy motifs, what would a bathroom upgrade be without a fresh set of towels, maybe a cabana stripe pattern?! Pottery Barn Kids makes it easy and fun with their Rugby Stripe Bath Towel Collection (available in a variety of colors). You can’t go wrong with a soothing shade of aqua:
Tommy Hilfiger’s All American II Cotton Mix and Match Bath Towel Collection (created for Macy’s) is another fun choice. Match the stripes and solids to the vivid colors in your bathroom artwork, and you’re set!
On a similar note, Zara Home offers these Towels with Multicolored Stripes in three sizes. Eye-catching and bright:
H&M Home’s Tasseled Bath Towels bring fringe to your interior, along with a welcome dose of turquoise. Note that these towels are also available in Light Pink, as well as Cream/Charcoal Gray:
Don’t forget the shower curtain! Since we’re on the topic of turquoise and tasseled, check out this Ombre Seersucker Tassel Shower Curtain from Target. Watch as the gradient goes from white to a deep blue/green. It’s like staring into the ocean:
Last but not least, this Pink Tassel Shower Curtain from Pottery Barn Kids is playful and fun (also currently available in navy). Bright colors add a splash of vibrancy without taking over the space:
Even with a conscious effort to keep the your powder room friendly for all ages, you’ve got to have some kid gear. After all, safety and accessibility come first!

Also from Puj: the Single Cup and Nub, perfect for stashing toothbrushes, combs and other essentials for your little one. You’ll love choosing from radiant hues such as Tangerine, Lilac, Azul and Citron. Modern design elevates this practical storage cup to object of interest!
And if it’s potty training time, this Easy Seat Toilet Trainer is about as subtle as they come! Fingers crossed that your little one is up for a simple modification to the big seat!
Don’t forget those extra special touches that give life to a space. Houseplants are a wonderful option for the powder room, especially when you make sure they’re kid-safe. Not sure you’re up for the maintenance? Try faux foliage, such as this Faux Phoenix Palm Leaf:
Earthy baskets can also double as storage, creating a functional accent for your child-friendly bathroom. How fabulous is this Pineapple Floor Basket from Crate & Kids?!
