they did it with style in the 50s

31 Aug

Looking for inspiration for my bathroom I spied this beauty in one of my vintage Pins and Needles magazines. A genuine 1959 home renovation idea, to turn your bathroom from drab to pink-and-ribbons fab.

What’s not to love about white lace plastic shower curtains that frame your bathtub as pretty as a picture? And is that a chandelier I spy hanging daintily in the foreground?

The vogue bath (available in eight colours) would have set you back a modest 27 pounds. You could have had the whole bathroom for 36 monthly payments of 1 pound and 5 shillings.

Beautiful.
