Skip the Remodel: Embracing the Retro Bathroom

Skip the Remodel: Embracing the Retro Bathroom

We popped by an open house happening up the street, and before the agent showed us the bathroom, she said warningly, "It needs a LOT of love...!" But the bathroom actually reminded us of Lynn and Leif's beautiful house tour with the matching lavender tub-sink-toilet combo and black-and-white Art Deco tiles.

Our companion said, "Ugh, that bathroom is begging for a remodel!" But we're thinking, Why go the whole hog? The bathroom could get back to its glory disco days with the right accessories!

If you can't remodel a bathroom (and most of us either rent or lack the funds or the time), what do you do to update it or personalize it?
