Bathrooms Like Gardens

December 18, 1930
On this day, The Boston Globe shared a little snippet called “Bathrooms like Gardens.”
Here’s an excerpt:

“Lady Cromer has her favorite flower, the iris, as the motif of her bathroom.
The walls are painted with growing irises in flower on the bank of a river, the river being the bath itself, and the whole effect is that of a charming garden.”
