    hahaha - we’re about to close on land in Burnet, TX. I’ll try to remember not to mosquito-net my tub on any future dwelling there.

    It looks like they have multiple shower heads arranged in a circle and a clear shower curtain on a circular rod over their jetted tub.

    I wonder if those curtains separating rooms were inspired by movies from the 1940s showing curtains as room dividers. Cheap imitations, though.

    old houses were drafty and hard to heat. Heavy curtains were used to section off areas not used so you did not have to heat those areas.
    I would guess the first photo, the curtains was used for a changing room to use the pool?

    Jeez, Sam, are you making excuses for this?
    Why?

    Ha ha MJ
    Sorry, forgot the sarcasm symbol

    However, historically in many large old houses they used curtains for heating partitions.
    Modern times, yes they do look out of place….

    At least the El Mirage curtains are slightly palatable. The Phoenix bedroom looks like a room in a sleazy Vegas hotel and the rest are puke-worthy.

    How do you take a bath in the bathroom with the green curtains and…”Bathskirt”?
