A bold yellow vintage bath stands the test of time with charm and style.
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 vintage bath fixtures and tile in this 1940’s brick ranch. With yellow accents used throughout the renovation, there was no reason to remove the color or style. The tub is fronted with the same cheery tile for continuity and fills from a wall mount faucet. Dark pencil liner 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 behind the door. We don’t get to peek 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 lightens the look. The wallpaper draws attention away from the tile and the daring pattern, with black accents, becomes a striking presence.

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.
