    House shopping in a late 40’s/early 50’s neighborhood. Lots of pink bathrooms on offer!!!!!

    I live in FL in a 1940’s ranch style we bought 4 years ago. The previous owners renovated the entire house, but kept the pink bathroom for their 2 young girls. When we bought the house, my husband said, we can redo the guest bathroom someday. I said NO WAY, it’s the only original thing left in the house! Growing up, my grandparents lived in New Orleans in a 1930’s cottage with a blue tiled bathroom upstairs for my grandfather and a pink one downstairs for my grandmother. I always loved it and even though I have a son, my pink bathroom will stay as a daily reminder of my Grammy.

    We have adjoining pink and blue “Jack and Jill” baths in our wonderful, brick 1955 home.
    Have restored a pink toilet and installed a blue sink – both from Hippo Hardware in Portland, OR. Why would anyone not want colored bathrooms?

    My husband and I are in escrow on a 1949 all original home in Long Beach, CA. We will be the 2nd owners. :) The bathroom has pink tile on floor, counter and tub with blue tile boarder. We are keeping the tile and cabinets as they are. Now I just need to figure out how to decorate the bathroom and what paint/paper to put on the walls.

    We have an original pink bathroom that came with our 1954 California Ranch that we bought in “97. It has skeleton key wallpaper with pink, white, black and silver-grey keys. Grey/black/pink/white linoleum floor, super aviation style chrome sink faucet and handles, lots of storage, a pink, grey and white faux marble linoleum countertop and LOTS of pink tile! Several people have tried to talk me into remodeling but that will never happen!

    I love my pink bathroom. After I went through a major flood in 2008, the contractor couldn’t wait to rip it out. I had to get rid of the old pink sink but was able to leave the toilet and tub. I found a new sink that matched the style of my old pink tub and had the new sink painted pink to match the rest. I love it and so does others who come to visit. It is a mix of old and new and looks very vintage. I am all girl and would never part with my pink. I even added a strip of one inch pink glass tiles around the shower. It looks great.

    I have been living with my pink and green bath for 22 years, have always loved the funkiness of it. I see pictures here of its Kohler sink and tub. Several years ago we found a new toilet that matched very well. Getting ready to sell and wondered if I should do like the tv shows and gut it. You’ll be pleased to know that every realtor and contractor I asked said “no way! Keep it!”

    when we had a minor flood, they wouldn’t put back our pink tiles because the backs were covered in concrete. But they saved them for us and two years later, when he has time, my hubby “dremels” out the back and installs the tile, a few at a time. When he is finished, he promises to work on our blue bathroom. Until I read about this website, I didn’t know there were others who loved pink bathrooms as much as I did. I do need a pink toilet seat and I bet I can find out about them here.

    I have a pink bathroom. It is in the home (in which I was raised) my husband and I are renovating. I value its vintage (one year older than I, it’s 65) but I want a new bathroom. SO, I have been trying to find someone who would like the old pink fixtures. My local Habitat for Humanity ReStore is not interested. I am in the Portland OR area (actually, Vancouver WA). Suggestions?????
