It seems that many readers are trying to find just one or two matching pieces to bring their original bathrooms back to their full glory. Sinks seem to be big contenders in this search – they get dinged or otherwise worn out, or they were replaced at some point with plain white.
I was amazed when I saw in this 1961 ad, that Case made 46 distinct colors by that time. Holy cow, that’s too many choices! I don’t want to be a downer on a Monday spring morning – but be forewarned, anyone trying to recreate a very particular look, in a bathroom or elsewhere for that matter, that this is a quest not for the faint of heart. And as I got into my retro renovations, I actually got more picky, not less, that everything be “just so.” This is not a bad thing, I think of it ultimately as artistry. But, it takes time. If you are up for it, the decorating gods will be teaching you the virtue of patience.
