Hello AT,

The Southwestern motif should never have been brought to bear upon this New England 1940s vintage bathroom.

For financial reasons, I'd like to keep the faux marble vanity, toilet, tub and wall tile, but can't wait to change the wall color, matching Southwestern shower curtain and wallpaper border, window treatment, and light fixture above the medicine cabinet.

I'm undecided on whether or not to keep the existing aqua-esque linoleum floor.

What paint color and light fixture would you suggest? How can I bring a bit of modernity to this bathroom while retaining 1940s vintage elements? Thanks! Sandra
