Won’t You Be My Neighbor? – Amazing Vintage Bathroom With Pearlescent Tile

Wow.  Not a lot to choose from this week. There were a few houses with original bathrooms, and a few with original kitchens, but only one house this week with both.  And does it ever have it all!  I even like the color.

This house in Midland, MI is about a 1000 square feet and is selling for $94,900.  And it has the most amazing bathroom I have ever seen.

Cute light!

Love that little table, so cute.

Shiny pinch pleats!

Look…at..that…tile!  Pearlescent Peach tile!  It looks like mother of a pearl.  I love it.

I just can’t get over that bathroom.  Here it is again.

Wow. Wow!

    I’m also wondering about that fabulous tile….the size of the tile square makes me think it might be plastic. The pearlescent business is great!

    Wow! I bet the bathrooms in Heaven are like that. I also love the kitchen cabinets and that wood four seasons room.

    I’m a certified interior designer and I’m all but certain the tile is plastic. I just finished remodeling a 1952 bathroom that had the same tile – pink, not peach. Unfortunately, the tile was so discolored and so many pieces were missing that we could not keep it. We did keep the original burgundy tub, sink and toilet. The original sheme was pink, black and burgundy – pretty edgy for 1952!

    Wow, Kirk, sounds awesome! Do you have any pictures to send? Would love to see them.

    Yep, Kelly. Bathrooms in Heaven. 🙂 Maybe I should make that a feature on the blog…
