I dig the Panton curtain on eBay (link above).

I have seen lots of Panton designs at Urban Outfitters.

If the dominant graphic objects in the room are the vintage pinups (love that!), maybe a plain heavy clear (translucent?) vinyl? I use the translucent vinyl "liner" that is widely available; it comes folded so ends up with a grid of undisciplined fold lines for most of the life of the curtain, unfortunately. (Would do for temporary; very cheap at department store/hardware store.)

Perhaps a VERY well-stocked fabric warehouse store will have something on a roll, that you could cut and add grommets (available at hardware store, with application "pliers")? You'd need a piece perhaps 62 x 66 "? Hmm. . .

No Mistlite shower doors?

you nailed it SDR!

That's what I am doing.

Mistlite shower doors would be cool, but the wife says a shower curtain is easier to clean.

Thanks for all the links, people.

At the risk of going too downscale I recommend Target, they have lots of mod shower curtains right now, many of them transparent, we bought a cool transparent shower curtain in bold retro colors with the Mexican Loteria design on it actually at Wal-Mart, it works in a folk art sort of way. And at Mervyn's we picked up a clear curtain with orange, fuchsia, chartreuse, and blue dots.

Hey there-
Don't know if you got that bathroom done but I thought since you had somewhat of a theme.. I thought you should check out this seller on E-bay. seller :QUEEN_BEE_CREATIONS
She has some very kitschy chalkware wall plaques that were shaped like little Vargas pinups. Enjoy!

Joe, do you live alone? If I was a single male again, I'd have this shower curtain:

MISSING my long and straight beams, stretching from the outside and piercing through the interior and back out again; seeing it all in one glance! WOW, it was gorgeous!
