I just bought a 1956 house. I am not sure I can live with the original pink and yellow bathroom. Actually I don’t mind the pink but not the yellow with it. Any suggestions? Everything is in very good condition.

Thanks, Julia. Did you know, that I use to live in nearby Oakville, Ontario? Another of my many hometowns. Hmmm. I don’t actually think that your yellow-gold sink, toilet and tub are original. Even if they are, even very-tolerant me is having a rough time with this color combo. I like the pink, though. The tiles look like they are nice quality, well set. I would rip out the sink, toilet and tub (very carefully) and go with — white, probably. (The thumbnail above is Crosley cabinet Dana’s pink bathroom with white fixtures, for a comparison). Maybe with nice black-dot Chloe tile on the floor? And you know I’ll say this: A nice patterned wallpaper.

Malingering on….you could, alternatively, live with this for a while. Hey, is that Chartreuse, not ‘yellow’? Maybe with the right accessories…like this flamingo wallpaper from Hannah’s Treasures, below, it would grow on you? Renovation is expensive – and hard on the marriage if that’s an issue!

Update: I added puddletown‘s barkcloth recommendation – nice!
