Addition of hastily made items
One glass-topped corner cupboard and one cork-topped linen box next to bath for that book you might like to ruin in the bath, or even the transistor radio playing while you relax :) Now, besides a corner shelf by the door, all I'd like to add (other than a pair of finished doors!) is a little steam running down the walls

oops, what about a string pull cord for putting on the light...

Dunno about that. I've this somewhat flaky rememberance that we didn't have one till the 60s. When I think back I'm not sure if the ordinary switch was in the bathroom or outside it. I think our bathroom door had obscure glass in the top two panels so you could see if the light was on and there was movement inside. My solution to the dilema of not knowing is not to have any general switch mechanism have showing anywhere (or pretend it's behind the door), and when I put up the wall light by the door that will have a string hanging from it ;)

It's absolutely brilliant and I wouldn't have noticed that the new objects were hastily made at all as the thought in them exudes style and flair in abundance...

Like the rest of the house, this room oozes nostalgia! So many of us, of a certain age, will have been in rooms just like this. You've captured it perfectly, Do. The airing cupboard is fab - it's just like the one in my Dad's house, to this day. Have you included a piece of pumice stone in the bath rack? There was always one in ours.

Love the trip hazard toy car lurking in the boys' bedroom doorway!

Funny you should ask about a pumice. We also had one in the rack and I was thinking about it but decided it would be too small to notice and I was more intent on hiding the rough makings of the rack with soft bits and bobs ;)

Fantastic room, the steam running walls idea is truly an authentic touch.
