Nancy’s pink poodle bathroom

nancys-pink-poodle-curtainsNancy is the official reader representative on the  Save the Pink Bathrooms website. I really needed a reader to help me illustrate our quest… I remembered her great bathroom from the post a year ago (exactly one year about today, actually!) and asked her if she were game to help with another photo showing off a quintessential pink bathroom. Thank you so much, Nancy!  Nancy wholeheartedly embraced her pink bathroom way before I even had the blog. She writes: “My husband and I are restoring a 1959 split-level home back to its original midcentury glory. Luckily, most of the original fixtures and features were never updated – including a pink bathroom! In fact, our pink hall bathroom is part of what sold us on the house.” Nancy found the vintage plastic poodle curtains, left, just last week. Her poodle accessorizing is now complete, she says, so you won’t be competing with her if you go after this MIB inventory heading forward.

    I have exactly the same tub, floor tiles, and toilet as this pic. Our friend says (from Steel Magnolias) “Blush and Bashful, my signature colors”.

    Wow– Nancy has our bathroom!

    Floor tole, tub, toilet, etc– the heat register is even in the same place!

    — we have possibly trumped her with our pink wall tile.

    Thanks for this site!

    Have a pink bath (what is still left of it anyway) in a mid-50s ranch outside Portland. I have been trying to find the name of both the tub and the color of tub enclosure wall tiles and where to find either originals or repros. Tub color and wall tiles are slightly different – one more ‘flesh’ toned and one more pink with brick colored edging. Have visited multiple large tile dealers in the city and they can only guess at who manufactured them. Their best guesses were Daltile or American Olean (?). Can you help?

    The tub enclosure is all that is left of the original bathroom. The sink, counter and toilet all long since changed – but would like to preserve what is still there. I love the colors. Found the original lino – was lemon yellow, pink and seafoam streaks! I think the original wall was a seafoam green. Actually very pretty…

    The other bath has a shower with a similar tile, speckled in gold colored flecks but also edged in the same brick-like color tile. Any suggestions on that one?

    Many, many thanks – am so glad I found your site!

      See category: Bathrooms / Tile for companies with vintage pinks available. B&W or Anne Sacks may be your best bet.

    I got such a kick out of your poodle pink bathroom. When I was growing up we too had a pink poodle pink bathroom.

    A funny story about the poodle wallpaper in the our bathroom is that my grandfather wanted something to do while he was visiting so Mom said he could wallpaper the bathroom. We thought he did a wonderful job until I sat in the bathroom staring at the wallpaper and realized that Grandpa didn’t match up the paper. It was such a a little thing to match but ever since I spotted it, it bugged for 8 years, then we moved. The matching that needed to happen was just a little corner of a rug, so no wonder Grandpa missed it.

    Thank you for the memories.
