The Art Deco Bathroom
Yes, today I am literally posting about bathrooms, it's not the first time I have wandered off into the land of interior decor! Yesterday at the local historic mansion where I took outfit photos I saw some incredible bathrooms! I had seen depictions of decadent art deco bathrooms like the drawing above before, but I had never seen one live! Well the Highlands Ranch Mansion has several extraordinary bathrooms that I just had to show you!
This yellow was a bit more mellow in real life I promise. This huge bathroom was fully paneled like a room out of Versailles, had curved doors leading into cabinets and private toilets, and was home to the cutest pedestal sink I have yet seen! The entire room was hand painted with blue floral accents and was entirely girly and over-the-top!
This next bathroom was gold, black, and red and was again paneled and trimmed out! A different kind of European flair, with painted (stenciled?) ornamental designs. Just look that that gold and burgundy tile work! Then there are the black fixtures, a black tub! Again I am in love with the perfectly period pedestal sink, I want one!
I certainly would like such a fabulous bathroom for myself one day, the designers of the Art Deco period certainly had an exuberant attitude towards color and pattern even in the smallest of rooms! I hope you guys enjoyed our peek onto the powder room, I'll be back with more holiday fun soon!
