Or, you want to add a touch of vintage style to a modern bathroom. What is left?
Vintage sculptured towels!
I recently read a great article over at retrorenovation.com about how vintage-style towels are making a comeback. Apparently all those sculptured and textured towels from your Grandma's linen closet are hot stuff over at Anthropologie, Pottery Barn and even Kmart. Who woulda thunk it?
Why, you and me, of course.
See, it just so happens that here at the PIT we got hep to that jive long ago. I'm here to show you some of my vintage textured towels from the 50s and beyond! (It helps to be the only one in the family with a genuine 50s pink bathroom- I inherited all of these from Grandmas and Aunts over the years. No icky thrift store towels!)
Two of my favorites, both textured plush Textron towels.
Close up of the large one- this is my favorite!
A matched pair of bath and hand towels. I have two sets of these, plus wash cloths. They probably are the closest match to my tile. These are Cannon sculptured towels like those mentioned in the article. The only downside to all this fabulousness is that the bath towels are about half the size of modern ones. So just use two!
Three of a kind! The middle one is a light green; I usually use it in the other bath.
This is another of my favorites.
I love the pink trim band!
I bet I'm not the only one that remembers these.... I think we also had matching sheets back when I was a kid in the 70s. I think my eyes are burning.
And for those who call the 80s "vintage", see ET in that image? LOL
Hope you enjoyed your trip through the Chez QT linen closet!
