What is that glow at the end of the hallway?

It's our new pink bathroom. I repainted it this weekend.
The pictures don't really do it justice. It's a clean salmony pink color. I decided to keep our old shower curtain because the pink matches one of the pink stripes. Although I did find some fun pink poodle fabric that would make an awesome shower curtain. I'd have to change my decor then.
I originally painted it a light turquoise 7 years ago. Time for a change. Violet has also been asking about wanting her room pink. I said NO. Why no? Because her room has a huge vaulted ceiling and I don't really want to have to repaint it again some day when she decides she hates pink. So I said lets paint the bathroom instead. She was excited about that. She got to paint her name on the wall before we started and then got to use the paint roller, which she complained was too heavy.

Everything else is pretty much the same. Except the hand towels. I decided to lease the turquoise tissue holder and toothbrush holder. It breaks up all that pink and doesn't look bad.

BRIGHT pink rug with matching hand towels. New towel bar.

Brand new fancy faucet. No more builder grade faucet! And now the drain actually drains!

Will be adding white crown molding next.

Channeling Grandma??? I know your mom will tell me that one of the bathrooms in your house in Spanish Lake was pink, but the one I remember was Grandma's house in O'Fallon -- pink toilet, pink tub, pink tile. Between the pink bathroom and the bright red carpet in the bedroom, I think the later owners wondered about her color choices, but everything they had was beige and navy blue. Blah!

It's so bright that it makes the white vanity and commode look pink. But, I do like it.
