In all my years of house voyeurism, I have never seen a bathroom with features like this:
Notice that this is a one-piece – some serious flushing cabability!
See the matching light fixtures, shelf bracket, towel rod, etc? I was amazed it was all a perfect match AND still intact, given that the house has changed hands a few times. Lucky!
Even the ceiling fixture matches! How cute is that?
The pièce de ré·sis·tance, a giant purple tub.
These photos are from the home of a fellow fixer-upper couple we met this week. I thank them for sharing their house, both with us and the blogosphere. They also have an all-pink bathroom downstairs – pink wall tile, pink tub and toilet, pink mosaic floor tile, and super cool hollywood-style mirror. I can’t believe that both bathrooms are still intact with the original fixtures – it was pretty amazing to see.
These one-piece toilets were apparently “Cadillac” of toilets in their day, and appear to be from the late 20’s – early 30’s. This page has more info on the style: http://casetoilets.bestmfgco.com/
I think this bathroom proves that if you’re going to do something stylized, you might as well do it all the way…. right down to the towel-bar holder!
