Images found mid century homestyle
Well I am sure I am preaching to the choir here but I really hate to see people Modernizing and tearing out those colorful 50's bathrooms. Today I was saddened to see a colorful green blue toilet in a dumpster bag when out on a walk. I was very tempted to go back with my car and get it, is that weird?
When we were house hunting one of the things I was looking for in a house was a nice vintage (hopefully pink) bathroom but it was a really tough house market at the time and I did not get my dream bathroom. As a result I have often scoured the free section of craigslist for pink pottys, sinks, or tubs. I do have a toilet not yet installed in my house as well as a pink sink to go with it but so far a tub eludes me as often they are heavy and people choose to remove them in pieces rather than try to take them out as a whole. I am sure many of you have seen the sight save the pink bathroom if not you really need to check it out.
Pink bathrooms have been around since the 30's but Mamie Eisenhower is really credited with making them the popular mid century choice for bathroom decorating. Well my personal thanks goes out to Mamie and well to all of you who love and preserve your pink bathrooms.
Oh and well not sure if some will consider this a sacrilege but when found the sink it came with a toilet that had been chipped when removing if from it original home and as we had another I decided to install it in our back forty. Here it is in the bloom of summer.
