Leave the Rainbows for the Sky
Remember when coloured porcelain
was actually cool in the 1980s and 1990s? No..? Funny… me neither.
I got a kick out of the rainbow selection of toilets and sinks at the local hardware store in Coronado, Panama. Can we all sing-song the words “Ugly Pooper” in unison now? Ready…go!
These fixtures serve as a reminder as to how “behind” in the design world most Panamanian products and finishes are. Don’t get me wrong, there are some incredible design products and beautiful interiors in this beach community, but for the most part, the styles leave very little to be desired.
Attention residents and business owners of Coronado, Panama:
If you, or someone you know, has a toilet and/or sink duo that is not white, vanilla, ivory or soft grey, please contact Tania of TLC Design & Decor immediately for a design consultation. There is no need to introduce colour into a space via the bathroom fixtures…I will help you source neutral-coloured fixtures and show you how to add colour through accessories. (Note: if you have a black toilet, this note applies to you as well).
Now let’s take a look and poke blatant fun at other coloured (and ugly) bathroom fixtures.
Am I the only one that thinks this is ludicrous? Am I being an old stick-in-the-mud when it comes to tinted porcelain? Please tell me if you think I’m wrong (or being too closed minded), and just the same, please tell me if you think these coloured thrones must go!
*Sigh* Ugly design so much fun!
ATTENTION: NEW UPDATE
I was chatting with the lovely @JenSelk (visit her witty, clever blog HERE) who expressed an occasional appreciation for coloured porcelain because of it’s tendency to look charmingly retro. Jen particularly likes the way a mint-green toilet looks, so I challenged her to find me a photo of a “mint green pooper” that isn’t hideous, and while she couldn’t find a photographic example, she did bring this mint-green sink duo to my attention.
As promised, I am posting this image here for you to see as well. I don’t think it looks *that* bad, but it’s still not my style ;) But I can appreciate the cohesive, retro feel of this bathroom.
Thanks for the coloured-porcelain chat, Jen! It was fun :)
