@21cylo: Look up Kate's bathroom remodel on Retro Renovation. It's a new old bathroom, and what I aspire to. :)


Looove #1, #4, and #5's before pictures. So dreamy. Especially #5--that floor tile just could not be any cuter with the fixtures! Really glad that #5 donated the retro goodness--do you know how many hours I've spent hunting down similar stuff? That the same wasn't mentioned for #1 and #4 makes me suspect people took a mallet to it, as usual. Sigh!

Is anyone else humored by #5's supposed complaint of a "headbanger" over the toilet storage rack... and then replacing it with TWO headbanger wall shelves? Lol. If you're managing to hit your head on the storage rack, I'm guessing you're going to manage to hit your head on the shelves as well. :P

It’s going to be interesting to see how long the freestanding tubs fad lasts...before people get tired of trying to clean around them. Lovely, but not very practical; kind of like the huge whirlpool tubs of the 1980’s.

@Mariele Storm . I love retro renovations. Pam's kitchen makes me swoon. I have a friend who lives in 50s farm house in Tasmania. It has the most amazing pink and green bathroom that she hates! I love it. It's in perfect condition. Her son has taken over the farm and lives there now. I hope they never get it into their heads to "update" it.
