Vintage Bathrooms Brimming With Charm

I wish I could explain why I am so drawn to old decrepit things. Some of course are just ugly or outdated, but there’s something about certain objects and rooms. Despite crumbling bits and worn corners they are brimming with charm. I suppose it has a lot to do with a feeling that they have a story to tell, that they’ve been around a while and are therefore imbued with the character and personality of the people and events that have touched them. Public vintage bathrooms have never been so lovely as the one above. 😉 I have a particular fondness for cracking and peeling walls. Time has turned it into art.

Just adding a few vintage touches to a room can transform it from bland and unexciting to welcoming and intriguing. The vintage-style mirrors in this bathroom are adorable. And how about that tile? Pretty much everyone likes subway tile and I love how this has the same basic look but the tiles have a handmade, wavy and uneven look. Super charming.

I found some seriously stunning tile recently when I was looking for ideas for our kitchen (which may or may not be remodeled some time in the near future). Check out these lovelies that could work just as easily in bathrooms as on a backsplash.

That tub. That tile! The perfect vintage touches in a clean, modern room.

If you can plop giant wild flower arrangements on the sinks in your vintage bathrooms that always helps too. 😉

I have a bit of exciting news! Last week I spontaneously decided that I was finally going to move design-vox to self-hosting, rather than being hosted by WordPress which it is currently. I’ll still be using WordPress as a platform but this will allow…
