A luscious 1954 vintage bathroom from Armstrong floors

I was recently introduced to the concept of “bathroom porn.” No, not girlie magazines in the recessed chrome Hallmack magazine rack…rather, mouth-watering photos of vintage bathrooms. If this one does not qualify, I don’t know what does.

This interior design study is from my personal collection of 1954 Armstrong flooring ads produced by Batten, Barton, Durstine & Osborn, Inc. To see more — click thru the Tag below that says ‘Armstrong floors.’

Book pitch…If you like these images, which are chock full of design ideas, there are many more in the anointed retro renovation “bibles”…hours of fun for the whole family, I’m serious!:

    Pam – thanks for sharing this! Our masterbath is the only non-original bath in the house and it’s a boring 1980’s thing…when we rework that section of the house (after we get this *&(%! nicotine out of the walls – which is a huge job!) I’m going to use this inspiration photo for the design of the master bath. Thanks as always for sharing and motivating!

      Kanda, see the Fast & Easy Flooring page for an archive of vintage-style flooring you can buy today. You get the flooring itself through retail dealers or a big box home store. Good luck.
