Since we’ve been on a bathroom roll, I thought that spotlighting these 1959 Kohler sinks – “lavatory sinks” with chrome legs and towel bars — would be fun. Aren’t the colors and designs just beautiful?
Here’s an entire suite (below). For those of you trepidatious about going too colorful with the fixtures and tile, this photo exemplifies how combining a two neutrals — in this case, white and gray — along with snazzy (low risk $) wallpaper and shower curtain can deliver a very stylish retro effect. If you want to buy new fixtures today – the grays tend to be lighter, but the idea still holds. As reader Laurie of 1951 Ranch Redo pointed out in the post about Sebastian’s Montreal bathroom recently, choosing towels with the dark accent trim also is a really nice touch.
