They don’t make them like they used to

I love motel rooms that have original bathroom features. These days hotels and motels have fixtures that will fall apart in less than a decade. The Aneth Lodge in Cortez Colarado has a bath, sink and toilet built to last.

I’m not sure how old the motel is, but the bathroom has a Deco feel. One thing is certain, while it’s unlikely to be of deco vintage, the motel predates the “built-in obsolescence” era.

I feel sad that these days the decor changes are so rapidly that beautiful functional designs can all but vanish as people devalue them because they are deemed unfashionable.
