Time capsule pink bathrooms

time capsule pink bathroomsThere’s pretty much nothing we find more exciting than time capsule houses — homes that have been well tended and haven’t changed much over the years. We spotlight lots of them on Retro Renovation. And when there’s a pink bathroom inside – whoa! stop the presses! That’s me, at an estate sale where I was able to capture this Hollywood Regency delight. Come on, people. Life is too short. Don’t take yourself too seriously. A pink bathroom has come into your life? Seize the day. BTW this time capsule house was fantastic, read more here.

    I’m so happy to have found this website! Everyone thinks I’m crazy for wanting to keep the pink, gray and black bathroom that is original to my husband’s grandmother’s 1952 ranch that we’re buying.
    It is a tiny house with a tiny bathroom but I love it! It was well-loved and, with the exception of a chipped towelbar holder (for which I found a replacment on Craigslist) it cleaned up to look like new!
    A bonus was that, when cleaning out the linen closet, I found a NEW black plastic shower curtain (and window curtains and tie backs!) with pink egrets and gray starbursts. WoW!
    I’ll be creating a photo journal of the refurbishment of our new home. I’ll try to share before and after photos.

    I have 2, yes TWO lovley Pink Bathrooms in my house built in 1953!! The master sink was built infront of a wondow (so no mirror) and someone laid hunter green carpet in one part of it! I am off to rip it all out and restore the original splendor!

    Does anyone know where can I find retro coral pink bathroom tiles in CT.
    I’m trying to do minor remodeling to our bathroom and only need a few
    tiles to fill in where part of the medicine cabinet was.
