A bold color bathroom stands the test of time.
In the age of “rip it out,” it’s refreshing to see an original bathroom still intact. Designer Greg Natale stood his ground when it came to keeping the sunny yellow tile and bath fixtures in this 1940′s brick ranch. With yellow accents used throughout the renovation, there was no reason to remove. The tub is fronted with the same cheery tile for continuity and filled from a wall mount faucet. Pencil trim accents the wall and a small border outlines the floor. The luxurious Florence Broadhurst peacock wall covering with a silver background reflects the light coming through the windows. Notice the sink is centered under the left window, with a mirror placed between the pair and treated as one with trim.
A small shower is tucked away in the corner, hidden when the door is open. We don’t get to peak at the shower stall, but I can visualize the repeated floor tile with its black border. While the warm yellow material may seem overwhelming, using an equally strong wall treatment draws attention and instead of jarring, the daring shade becomes a warming presence.
