I love all things vintage (hence my blog name!) and since I moved into my flat at the end of last year, I’ve been adding hints of vintage to my home interior wherever I can. Retro style is a great interior choice due to it being timeless; think rustic charm, nostalgia and 50’s glam.

Now I’ve finally got round to taking some photos of the bathroom, so here’s a room tour of my little bathroom!

My friend is pregnant so it was kind of a mini baby shower for her as well as a nice little catch up!
