Shower curtains - bright and bold, or nice and neutral?

Hi all,

I shared my tile with you the other day (and I'm still just as excited about it), but onto the next thing. We have to find a shower curtain for the shower...this is no easy feat. There are a LOT of cheesey shower curtains out there. Seriously, google image "shower curtain" or even Pinterest it, and you get a lot of cheese factor.

The last shower curtain I had won't fly (it's brown), but I ended up buying fabric and having my mom sew it  to get the length we desired (I HATE short shower curtains). That's an option, but if we can find a pre-fab one out there it will speed up the big reveal to you guys :)

Here are some options I came across on Pinterest and in my searches.

Starting with the nice and neutral:
 (a) this is a gorgeous bathroom (b) I like the classic look of the black and white. We almost went with this floor, but once we chose a modern vanity I wanted a more linear floor...ok back to the shower curtain. The border could easily be a DIY, and having the 2 shower curtains (although I was doubtful at first) could be a great way to show off beautiful tile in the shower. Image via DesignManifest

 Another black and white option - this one from Target!

 And now for the bright and bold:
 
 If I decide to go for colour in my bathroom - this is the print I want! Not sure if I would go for the coral or another colour, but I love the pattern. Diane Von Furstenburg (of course) via Refinery29

So, what do you think? Neutral or Colour?

1 curtain or 2?

I really like the "turkish" style one for the neutral look or if you want colour the coral one is my fav.

I've always loved a good striped shower curtain, but ikat chevron could be quite fun in a neutral space. So many decisions!

Neutral all the way!

I really like neutral. That first look is so classic.

I'm a sucker for neutrals, so that gets my vote. I'm less likely to tire of a neutral, which is nice if you've splurged a little on your shower curtain (we recently bought one of the Belgian linen shower curtains from Restoration Hardware and it was worth every penny!).

I love the look of the brights, but for everyday living, I'm such a fan of neutrals!
