Can underwear be artistic? In the bathroom? Wait, don’t answer that yet.
For many, the bathroom can serve as a makeshift laundry room, with a shower rail doubling as a clothesline, especially for garments that may have been purchased in the unmentionables department.
But most of us would never consider decorating our bathroom (or probably any other room) with briefs, bras and thongs, no matter how much you like your glow-in-the-dark Spam boxer shorts.
Defying convention, the above-pictured bathroom features one very unique piece of art: a framed, sequined thong (or to be politically correct, the bottom half of a showgirl uniform). The thong was used in the famed Las Vegas take on the Folies Bergére—a French revue. As you might have guessed, this home is located in Las Vegas. It was also the featured New American Home during this year’s International Builders’ Show.
As for the rest of the bathroom, the textured wall behind the vanity area is by Daltile, and the bubbly mirror mimics the wall texture in an exaggerated way. The wall tile and mirrors reinforce the glam style of the flamboyant undergarment.
And back to the underwear and Folies Bergére: in case you were wondering, the Vegas version of the show is at the Tropicana, but the ladies there will be hanging up their thongs for the last time at the end of the month, as the final show ever (at least at the Tropicana Vegas) is on March 28th. And in case you were wondering, yes, a mini Folies Bergére poster was part of the wallpaper featured in the previous Bathonista post. Obviously, I’ve met my quota for bathrooms that involve references to scantly clad, dancing women.
