In the wake of all the recent pink bathroom publicity, I received a slew of photos from folks feeling the luv. I am starting to go through all the emails, and how can I not start with the exuberant Jamie — and her Mamie pink bathroom. She writes:


I am a champion of your cause!  I bought my house in September 2005, and while the previous owners tried to hide the pink, I said, “Embrace the pink!”  It helped that I already loved all things pink and all things retro.

My bathroom is tiny, so it’s hard to get a perfect picture to capture the essense of pink.

The walls and ceiling are all wallpapered in a small, pink, floral pattern, and the pink tiles cover the walls.  I enclose a couple photos that make a good attempt at doing it justice!

Thanks for looking at and considering my photos!

No, thank YOU, Jamie. Anyone who gets in their bathtub with their cat is about guaranteed to get on the front page of this here blog. Such a gorgeous bathroom. The wallpaper is a great complement — superbly chosen. And the blingy atomic towel bar escutcheons — the perfect bathroom jewelry. Are those original? Highly highly sought after!  Who would, who could, EVER think of sledgehammering this with evil glee? xoxo, you go, girl!

    Not sure — but the place to find these generally is ebay. I watch for them and post them when I see them…

    Oh, my! I have just stumbled upon this entry….almost a year later!

    I have no clue as to the origins of the tub or towel rack. All I remember are hours of scouring the tub to get rid of water stains. I am out of town now, but I will check out the tub more closely when I get home to see if I can find a brand.

    There’s a shower in the basement made of cinder block…not nearly as charming.

    I have no current plans to redo the bathroom. It’s small, but it’s overflowing with charm….and it’s totally me!

    And my cat has very little fear of water. She more so doesn’t like being held for too long

    Thanks for all the compliments!!!
