Glamorlux Nancy was one of the first Retro Renovation readers to show off a vintage pink bathroom that she had embraced wholeheartedly. Her theme: Pink poodles, how appropros. “Two years ago,” she says, “when we were house-hunting, the pink bathroom (and other original 50’s features) is what sold us on this particular home!” Her bathroom is an all-time favorite — with readers writing me regularly to ask, “Where can I get a shower curtain just like that?” Sorry, folks, no straighforward answer on that one. You’ll have to hunt it down vintage. But send out kind and patient vibes, and the retro decorating gods may well send one your way. Read more about Nancy’s bathroom over on Retro Renovation.
2021 Update: After nearly 15 years of blogging about the retro, I have stepped back from posting regularly, and have closed comments. Enjoy all the wonderful comments over the years! Hooray for pink bathrooms!

Anyone know the year, make, or color of that tub? I recently moved into a place with the same model. I’m thinking it’s peachblow…? There’s no other matching fixture in the room, but I’d really like to keep it and see if I can find anything else.

Any idea where I can get a few pieces of the pink random square floor tile in the picture? Am renovating mother’s house in Michigan. Looks great!

I love it! I have the original pink tub which is still in excellent condition. I am considering getting a pink toilet to replace the white one. I have chalk ware fish on the walls.

We toured a home while house hunting that had a bathroom that looked like this. The (original) wallpaper was gray with pink flamingos.
