    We are restoring a 1937 Spanish Hacienda and will be using the original toilet in the picture I would like to send you.

    Who made it and what did the original toilet seat look like and was it the same color? That is our question.

    Your help is most appreciated. The only markings we can find have an appearance of being stamped in the casting before coloring and glazing. The are ” W August 26, 1938 “. The bowl looks Ocatganol but it is actually 12 sided up close. I have a great picture to send of this Pink Beauty! Already have someone to recondition (de-calcify and buff), we need to find out what the original toilet seat looked like and if it was a matching color (Pink).

    Thank you in advance for your time.

    Kindest regards, Tommy

    I love my pink tile – it’s the blue tub, sink and toilet that make me crazy. any other color trim… but the house is paid for, so I can’t complain too much. If I find pink fixtures, it it possible to get the blue trim tiles out and replace them with pink or black or something better?

    Hi, Caeti,
    I feel your dilemma! My advice would be to use a neutral light painted wall color wall – probably the same color as your outer hallway. Then, experiment with wilder shower curtains. You can always return them. Here is an example of one in a 1970s bath that had Harvest gold tile in beautiful condition with a stunning mosaic tile floor. I made the cabinets of bamboo plywood, as the kitchen (the master and powder room were dark bamboo as I got a mixed pack bargain). This shower curtain is actually a Dian Von Furstenburg twin sized comforter cover I picked up at Marshalls for $20. 1301 Ventura bath 2.jpg

    My husband and I just bought our first home , it has a pink tiled bathroom lined with blueish-grey-green tile , I really want to tear it out , but if I can find some way that will make it work and look nice I wouldn’t mind keeping it , I just need help , I don’t care for crazy bold giant pattern wallpapers that I see a lot of people use , and the bathroom is a little small so I’m worried a darker color will make the bathroom fill like a coffin , if I could get help I would absolutely appreciate it

    Unfortunately, I didn’t get a chance to purchase a house with a pink bathroom but I did purchase a 1970’s beautiful home with a classic Orange main bathroom withe a wonderful burnt orange counter top. The Master Bathroom is an Awesome, light lemon yellow tiled shower with matching yellow counter top. I renovated the kitchen but I declared the bathrooms a safe zone and swore the reno crew to an Off zone. I Love my Orange and Yellow Bathrooms!
