This little website grew out of mid-century home lovers’ concern that pink bathrooms were being ripped out of post-war American homes way too hastily. How sad it is, to catch a TV makeover show that rips out a perfectly beautiful vintage bathroom… Seems like a bunch of the rest of the world — well behind our curve — actually dislikes mid-century pink bathrooms. They will regret what they have done.
On the other hand, I believe that to know pink bathrooms is to love them. Pink bathrooms are a wonderful part of our home design heritage. And, there is no doubt in my mind whatsoever that they are poised for a comeback — starting here, starting now.
Of course, pink bathrooms are emblematic — we love vintage yellow, blue, green, beige, peach, salmon, lavendar and grey bathrooms, too. Hi, I am Pam Kueber, publisher of RetroRenovation.com and this related pink bathrooms site. Come sit in my 1963 aquamarine kitchen to read more about me and my passion for mid-century, middle-class, main-street, “mid-century modern” and “mid-century modest” homes alike, published daily over on my main site, RetroRenovation.com.
But before you do, hang out a while here on Save The Pink Bathrooms. Leave a Comment to Take the Pledge. Spread the word. Of course, be sure to Be Safe/Renovate Safe. And yes: Love the house you’re in.
P.S. Oh, and thanks (I think) to Mel Kolstad for her cheeky collage above — Pamela, Pink Potty Potentate. Not that I already didn’t look ridiculous in the *normal* Drill Baby Drill photo. Is there no end to what we will do in the name of vintage pink bathrooms?
