Fab-ugly bathrooms I have known and loved

Old Anchorage houses and office buildings are a treasure trove of bathrooms like the one pictured above. Wallpaper. Yes. In the span of two days I ended up in these two, and I took it as a sign I should look for others. I would LOVE to start a little gallery.

The one above is from the Fish and Wildlife Building. Second floor. I wish I got to see the men’s room!

Here’s one in the KeyBank Plaza Building downtown that you use if you work at The Boardroom like I have been lately.  

Look at the floor! And those accent tiles are gold. Yesssss!


Please send me more! (Email: juliaeomalley@gmail.com) And: just for fun, here’s what one of the bathrooms in my house looked like before I remodeled it. Pink toilets! (As soon as I get the towels washed, I’ll post a before and after!)

  1. I have a soft spot for gaudy ‘mid-century modern’ 60’s-70’s (including the 80’s in Alaska) decorating and furnishings. I love the chunky wood furniture, textured wallpaper, and fearless use of color. Love love love the fab-ugly bathroom pics!
