Sunflower Yellow Vintage Bath

1940's yellow tiled bathroom by Greg Natale DesignA 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.

    Love the bath; hate the wallpaper. It would looks so great letting it be itself.

    I’m with Jane. They could’ve done a lot better with the wallpaper!

    The wallpaper is FANTASTIC! But I can’t locate it.

    Here’s a link to Signature, in Australia, which reps Florence Broadhurst.

    I would search those collections and/or contact them.
