Before & After: A Vintage Bathroom Gets a Charming New Look

When Joanna moved into her 1927 Spanish Revival a few years ago, the bathroom had a lot of original character and some...ahem...colorful extras that needed immediate attention.

Her goal was to simply enhance the bath's vintage charm with a few cosmetic updates and practical repairs. She switched out the rusted pedestal sink with a new model and chose Benjamin Moore's Black Horizon for the walls to play off the original black and white floor and subway tile. And we're pretty sure she's not missing those funky 70's florals.

She even made a lucky discovery in her own house:

After we moved in, we found the original porcelain bathroom sconces in the basement and had them rewired. They have a fun art deco feel and are a definite improvement (or should I say, restoration). With a few quick fixes, we are loving the character and casual feel of our bathroom!

Thank you Joanna!
