I could not help but notice that, during Joan Rivers’ 1969 talk show episode on decorating, gabbing with Family Circle’s Sally Pepper Adams and actress June Havoc, the queen of comedy spoke… well, glowingly… about the color pink and its flattering effects when used to paint a room. Discussing kitchen decor, she said:
When I was single, my mother painted the whole kitchen pink. Because when we’d bring the guys in afterward for coffee she figured a pink kitchen … pink… would put a little glow on the puss. We didn’t get married, but four maids ran off with the delivery men.
Affirming my notion that pink for a bathroom is “retro botox.” But in the kitchen, too? For sure! Remember Nora and her pink-painted time capsule kitchen? And this one — talk about glowing! And, check out all my other stories about pink kitchens.
