Orange Bath Towels In A Retro 1970s Bathroom

Carin loves to decorate with collectibles from the 1960s and 1970's. In fact Carin has done her entire house in bold funky Sunflower yellow, bright orange, black and browns. Lookat Carin's bathroom with hanging orange bath towels and hand towels tucked into orange bowls sitting on the side of the tub.

Bright Orange Collectibles Make Carin Weak In The Knees

Carin says she loves orange and that it makes her weak in the knees. The Kitschy Collector's daughter says she is allergic to the color makes her queasy!
But not Carin, she is always buying orange collectibles such as the Rosti Mepal utensils, the Australia Spice rack and jars and the wonderful Fondue set shown.
