The woman who designed the bathroom [below], for example, chose a Marbelle Linoleum, No. 021 for the field. As a feature spot, she then selected a classic Custom-Craft inset. She completed her clever design with gray and white Linostrips. The walls are Armstrong’s Linowall. II

Diamond theme splashproof linoleum floor in a diamond bathroom (1956)
The elegant appearance and richness of this bathroom is achieved through relatively inexpensive carpentry work, plus stylish accessories — drawer pulls, towel rings, lighting fixtures and latticework.
To minimize the usual stark appearance of the tub, washstand and toilet, all three are enclosed in cabinets. The long seating unit against the left wall camouflages the toilet fixtures, the section over the toilet being hinged and lifting up just as an ordinary toilet seat does. The tub is partially enclosed with a folding screen that makes the overhead shower into a stall shower, when in use.
The diamond theme of the splashproof linoleum floor is complemented by the diamond-grid latticework. Big mirrors contribute a sense of luxury. The one that covers the entire wall behind the dressing table reflects all of the room and picks up the red accents.
