This year, my hubby and I moved into our first home. There was a bit of work that needed to be done on the place, so we focused on the not-so-fun improvements first. Since we’re on a budget, we’ve needed to do a little at a time. I’ll be sharing pics of our place as we put the finishing touches on each room. If you’ve been reading Mirror80 this fall, you know that I’ve found some bargain items at antique malls, thrift stores and an antique festival. Time to put those finds to good use! We installed mirrors in our bathrooms last week (finally), so I thought I’d start by sharing these spaces with you…
Today we visit a few homes that haven’t been renovated in at least two decades. And unlike the folks at Ugly House Photos, we think the featured bathrooms in today’s post are pretty freakin’ awesome. Who needs granite countertops and dark wooden cabinets when you have patterned tile and bathtubs in any color but white? Thank goodness the fine folks who owned these homes left them alone, because now we have a pure glimpse into our favorite decade and the powder rooms that decorated it.
An ’80s-Style Bathroom
Are you ready for a little glitz? How about an animal print tub and glossy black tile? While perusing design mega-site Houzz, I stumbled upon a picture of this ’80s-style bathroom decked out in zebra stripes and lots of shine. No, this isn’t a Vegas hotel powder room from our favorite decade. It’s a modern Miami interior created by Nieto Design! Also of note: white calla lilies and square-frame lighting that may as well be neon.
