Lonny Mag Affirmation

Wednesday, April 14, 2010

It's always entertaining when a new issue of Lonny Mag comes out.  In a matter of seconds, or so it seems, the design blogs light up with thoughts on Lonny.  Some like this issue for the inspiring colors and others for the "green" decorating, but me, I'm digging the bathroom.


Yup, that's right, the bathroom.  Oh yeah, when I saw it I gave it a yes and a fist pump just like my husband does when his team scores a three pointer.  What's so great about the bathroom you ask?  The 1940's yellow and black tile is what's great.  This tells me that we are not the only ones on the planet with this tile and someone has figured out what to do with it.  This gives me hope.


Over the years, I have done a faux finish on the walls, thought of painting them black, and just recently decided to go white. Brown, white, and gold...sounds like a plan to me.  To see the most recent issue of Lonny go here.

    1. This is a beautiful bathroom. I love it's clean lines. My daughter lives in an old home on Capital Hill and has this subway tile. It is old and has some signs of weariness and wear, but they have chosen to keep it.
      Thank you for posting this!
      So beautiful!

    2. My husband and I toy with thoughts of replacing the tile, but we can never go through with it. We bought the house because we like its quirkiness and to rip it out and start over just doesn't fell right.

    3. I love that you are working "with" your vintage tile instead of tearing it out! I think your plan sounds wonderful!

    6. Pretty! At least your tile is black and white. Back in my ranch house days, we were blessed with white tile,but we had friends with peach, pink, or baby blue tile in their homes. Scary!
