Montage: 20 Vintage Bathroom Vanities

I tend to skew towards a modern aesthetic and certainly in the bathroom, where function, ease, and cleanliness is crucial. A year ago (it feels like yesterday), I posted  Montage: 20 Bathrooms with Modern Vanities along with Get the Look: 28 (Mostly) Modern Bathroom Vanities, precipitated by my lamenting our atrocious pink and nude bathroom in Delray Beach. (Yeah, I know, a flesh-toned Florida bathroom is better than no Florida bathroom!)

There are so many modern vanity options—I particularly like this style of natural wood modern bathroom vanity that hangs on the wall. Of course, I’m always up for a classic white marble bathroom too. If we ever redo the Boston bathroom (my biggest home decor wish), that’s probably the way we’ll go, given the style in these parts.

 Today I thought I’d play with a more vintage look, at least here on the blog. Designers who favor an antique, country, or rustic feel, often use a chest, console, or other interesting cabinet as a bathroom vanity. While an old chest could be annoying, with sticking drawers and peeling paint, a console table with a shelf running along the bottom is a great idea, since it provides storage for towels or baskets, without being blocky.

Here are 20 examples of vintage bathroom vanities that still manage to look fresh.

Carrot Currency: 10 Pairs of Havaianas with Rooms to Match

Earlier this week an ad buyer emailed looking for placement for a “beach footwear” client. That’d be Havaianas. Recalling the popularity of the  20 Spring Shoes & 15 Rooms to Match post I did back in March, I thought you’d be game for another. That, and I’m off to Delray Beach for two weeks in December, so I figured I could get a jump on outfitting my feet. Which reminds me, I bought the cutest pair of bright skinny, cropped jeans at J.Crew on Monday.
