Sundays of Yore: 1952 Bathroom

This post could also be called "Trendy today, ugly tomorrow."

Think about it. In 1952, a home editor at a women's magazine picked this bathroom to feature because it looked good. It was what the readers wanted to see. If there were blogs back then, this bathroom would have made the cut and people would have commented that they love the wallpaper, and that pink and red are so fresh together. And that pink sink! LOVE. Maybe someone would have shown how to get the look for less.

Ugh. I can't help but wonder: which of today's trends will be tomorrow's ugly?

I love this topic. And being ugly later is something I always think about when making major decisions for our house. Of course it is easy to err on the side of being terribly bland--and not being courageous enough to be out and out beautiful. Of course beauty is always in the eye of the beholder.
