Lighten Up

For our tiny second bathroom, I'm thinking about installing something like this

or this on the ceiling

And then adding a trio of framed prints by my favorite vintage pinup artist, Gil Elvgren. He was very prolific, so there's tons to choose from, but in keeping with the 'Hiya, Sailor!' theme:

What do you think?
It's an otherwise bland, small, beige and white striped bath with a low ceiling. In a 1917 era cottage.

So, vintage, slightly-naughty-sailor-girl-themed bathroom = Campy good?
Or= campy bad?

Cheesecake ahoy!

Oooh, the topless girl looks like she is just pleading for some Solarcaine.

Of course, you know my vote.

Total class, I am.

Campy GOOD! I decided to do my laundry with some of his pin-ups and some vintage soap boxes. I can't wait to see what you do with your bathroom.

Silly Monkey, good to see you back after the Gustav scare. I love the idea of the Elvgren pinups and vintage soap boxes in the laundry room - way cool!
