    Art Deco Remodelin' Help! Please :)

    I was just wondering if any of you have taken on re-doing a room or house into a vintage look (any year really, although I've never met someone who has re-done their decor back to the 1970's ) I'm currently working on our bathroom and have found push button light switches and art deco light switch push button plates.... Do any of you know some great old pictures that could help with this? I'm more curious about the inside of the bathtub. I was impressed with how many regular Home Depot type places have vintage fixtures still.
    Post pics please!

    I love this colour green! A more modest look, but very lovely nonetheless.

    This is a ongoing familly dispute/ debate.

    This is great thanks! I read that black and green was super popular during the 1930's. I love Scarlett Johannson's bathroom in Black Dahlia. My sink from Home Depot is almost identical but white. I also read during the 20s and 30s white became more popular because it showed dirt and therefore germs so it made the bathroom more 'clean'. Neat. The mirror I want looks identical to the way that one is hung! I can't wait to be done with it.

    I found some interesting things here http://blog.shop4classics.com/2011/0...ucets-and.html ... I actually came across that first pic you posted a while ago I believe, but I could never find it a bit bigger than a thumbnail.
