I’d have never guessed it, but the #1 viewed Category on RetroRenovation.com is: Bathrooms. I’d have thought, Kitchens. Hmmm.
So, more bathrooms it is, starting with this lovely 50s illustration. A very nice inspiration design showing how the pretty pastels of the period can be brought together — without being overwhelming. I love the white tile with black 2×6 trim against one wall…carried over to the soft white curtains and white shelf with black trim…the pink and yellow accents….the dark green floor to ground the whole thing including balance the black… and of course, the wallpaper that brings it all together.
Coincidentally — or not, because there are none in the retroreno’blogosphere — I just received an email from an ebay seller with the following green fixtures for sale. Circa 1954, a complete set of toilet, sink with chrome legs, tub and really cool airline jet style faucets. $700 in Minnesota. Sorry, I don’t know these models by site — the seller says there is a marking on one piece that says HDMart. In any case, I sure love their lines. Look at that sink, it is ready for take off!
