Advice on restoration from Old House Journal

The September issue of Old House Journal Classic Interiors includes some beautiful makeovers, including a bungalow that had been stripped of all character during two renovations.  (They did make some changes of their own.)  This issue focuses on bathrooms and shows the evolution of bathroom sinks and bathrooms; and it spotlights the beauty of the early colors and styles of tile.  Don't destroy the beauty and history of these homes just to "update" it with a current trend.

There's advice on repairs and restoration and how to maximize the space in small bathrooms; and there are sources for saving or restoring your old home's character.  And the Remuddling photos on the back page illustrate how people can create a travesty while attempting to be trendy!
