Cheerful flowered fabric that comes in several colors is a good way to give any room a fast beauty treatment.

This 1970s boho bathroom decor was created by none other than Gloria Vanderbilt Cooper, using a collection of flower prints she designed for Bloomcraft.

She’s used lots of patterns — Gloria’s Collage, Tulip Garden, Square Gingham, Calico Tulip, Pansies, The Family, Garden Party — in lots of colors, plus her own special flair for blending what’s zany and Victorian with contemporary comfort. Easy enough to copy and do yourself.

The bath-sitting room is also a blueprint of ideas for decorating with color and fabric.

Taking an ordinary boxy room, Gloria Vanderbilt Cooper has worked her way with fabric, paint, wicker, plants, a pale blue ceiling, fabric shutters, and a bathtub centerstage.

No ordinary tub, it’s a complete Jacuzzi installation with a timer, built-in armrests, special whirlpool inlets and a handrail.

All the fabric on the walls, floor, at the windows, and on the table skirt is cotton treated with Zepel [a discontinued product that was like Scotchguard] and in different colorings of her “Tulip Garden” pattern.

Cut into squares, the main pattern makes diamond shapes on the floor and checkerboards on the tub all around this boho bathroom.

Glued to the walls, bathtub, floor and around the fireplace, the fabric was then coated over many times with a sealant to keep it fresh-looking and waterproof.
