Originally, this 1960s psychedelic bathroom was identical to another one in the home — the same layout, with white tile walls and white tile floors.

With the help of an interior decorator back in 1969, this restroom was transformed, by wallpaper and indoor-outdoor carpeting, into a trippy glory of patterned color.

One tiled wall, along the tub, was mirror-covered; the others, covered in the bright pink (plus white, yellow and green) paisley-like patterned wallpaper, which was a Woodson print named “Carnival.”

To create the wild and groovy new decor, the lines between the tiles were filled in with spackling before adding two coats of primer paint.

Next, the colorful wallpaper, treated to make it water-resistant, was hung right over the tile, then continued over the ceiling and the ceiling-high cupboards and drawers that provided maximum storage space.

Other spots of note include the long shelf above the tub, to hold in- and after-bath essentials, while a closet for peignoirs and such was set into the right of the sink. (The corresponding area in the other bathroom was occupied by a stall shower.)
