There are many trends from the ’50s that are better off buried. The fixation with Jell-O, for example. Conical bras. McCarthyism. However, there are some things that should be allowed to stick around, pretty much forever. Nearing the top of the list: vintage pink bathroom tiles.
After all, Millennial Pink is still enjoying its moment. And homes featuring this pink perk aren’t in short supply: The Save the Pink Bathrooms campaign started by Pam Kueber of Retro Renovation estimates there might have been approximately 5 million pink home lavatories built from 1946 to 1966. They could even be found in the White House, when first lady Mamie Eisenhower redecorated the presidential living areas with her favorite hue.
There’s more than just random trendiness going on here. Pink is a calming color and can help enhance some skin tones, making you look just that little bit fresher when you stumble in for your morning shower.
If you want to join Eisenhower’s illustrious ranks and tint your world a pretty rose shade, perhaps the pink bathrooms in these 10 homes for sale will make you blush with joy.
