Pink was THE representative color of the 1950s. It’s popularity is attributed to first lady, Mamie Eisenhower, who loved the shade so much it became known as “Mamie Pink”. She even decorated the presidential bedroom in it, right down to the monogrammed wastebasket. Reporters even started calling the White House the “Pink Palace.” And when she was staying in an adjoining suite at a Denver Hospital, where Ike was recovering from a heart attack, she even had a pink toilet seat flown in. I guess she figured if you’re gonna make a stink, you might as well do it on pink! I know, I know, that was tacky. But I just couldn’t resist!
Personally, I’d love to have a 50s pink bathroom like the one pictured below. It’s a nice, soft blush shade and I’ll bet it would make your complexion look rosier!
The wall/divider with a vanity on each side is a great idea. Of course, you’d have to have quite a bit of space to make this work. But I love how it looks. Combined with other shades, like the grey and black terrrazo like flooring, and the woodtone cabinets, it makes the pink bathroom look a little less “girly”. The flooring is actually Armstrong Mosaic Corlon. I’m sure they don’t make that pattern any more. But if they did, I’d put in my kitchen or bathroom in a heartbeat!
So what do you think of a bathroom in pink? Would it be your pick, or just make you sick?
