the bungalow files: bathroom

Stepping into our bathroom is definitely like taking a step back in time.  From the wallpaper, to the light fixture, to the incredibly solid tub (sans shower), nothing feels modern.  However, it doesn't really bother me that much.   I kid you not, but everyone under the age of 40 who has come into the house has touched the wallpaper (it's raised) and said, "I actually kind of like this."  I actually kind of like it too.  

It's a pretty and classic pattern, even if its color leaves a bit to be desired.  Although I suppose if you called it chartreuse or citron, people would be all about it.  I think once you update the light fixture, mirror, and vanity, it would look more modern.  It feels better already with the wall to wall carpeting out ;)

Sorry about how blurry this picture is. But I wanted to illustrate the lack of shower capabilities.  Also, the old people support bars.  All of this will get renovated at some point...I'm just not quite sure when that some point is. It's okay though, our shrunken basement shower is working out surprisingly well. I'll have to show photos of that at a later date.

And there you have it in all its glory! Old people bars, built in cabinets with dated hardware, and all of that wallpaper.  What do you think?
