Happy Valentine's Day!
In the world of interior design online, it's easy to find rooms that have been carefully staged by professional designers. Spend some time on Apartment Therapy or Design Sponge and you'll see wonderful spaces full of the latest trendy objects and ideas - places you'd feel at home in.
The Valentine Bathroom, at my friend Eve's mother Helen's house, is another type of design. It's a thematic vintage time capsule of love. On the far wall, vintage candy boxes.
Notice, the pink paper roll. Not even manufactured anymore, but it's perfect. Helen said she's held back a stash just for this room. I forgot to ask when the room was finished, but by the wall clock I'm guessing some time in the mid 70s.The wallpaper is pale pink moire.
Are candy companies using lace and flower decorated heart boxes anymore?
I can't remember seeing any recently. Helen's is an impressive collection.
On the window shelf, another collection: red glassware.
In the front corner, the original pink porcelain tub. With kooky stick-on fish.
