Vintage decadence

Something a little 'different' for today's beautiful bathroom.  (You know we like to share those with you, on Fridays.)
     It's pink, it's black, it's vintage - and it's courtesy of a wonderful blog that we follow (through the fabulous Bloglovin) called The Paris Apartment.  The blog's author is a vintage dealer based in Florida, who specialises in romantic interiors, and is author of a fab book called The Paris Apartment:  Romantic Décor on a Fleamarket Budget (available at Amazon if you click here).  
     Claudia Strasser (Mademoiselle Paris Apartment herself) found this image in a 1925 catalogue of the show where the phrase 'Art Deco' was first coined.

PS  Throughout August, Beauty Bible will be scaling down our blog postings a little.  Like you, we'll be soaking up the sunshine (or soaking up the rain) - Sarah in Australia, Jo in (hopefully sunny) Hastings.  Term will 'restart' a little way into September.  But do stay (occasionally) tuned between now and then, though...
