Hi Pam,

First let me say, “Thank you!” for your webpage, Save the Pink Bathrooms“. I just bought a home that built in 1957. I had been contemplating remodeling the “Pink” bathroom all together until in my remodeling research I stumbled across your website. Eureka! I have been inspired to protect my pink bathroom. Now I will probably repaint the cabinetry and add some more modern knobs, add some other period novelty pieces, and add a better window treatment.


Yippee, another pink bathroom saved. Have you taken your pledge? –> Click over and please do and most of all, keep spreading that pink — and green and blue and yellow and gray and beige and lavendar and all those pretty pastel colors that granny loved — love. xoxo and have a great weekend, everyone, back at you come Monday!

    PS…the floors are a challenge with these bathroom colors, too. They are beige terrazzo floors. Please help!! Thank you…

    I am in the process of purchasing a house from 1940 in Miami. At first, I wanted to remodel the pink master bath, but it breaks my heart to do so. The tiles on the shower floor are not in good shape. Is there a way to keep the existing tiles and restore/replace the old. If I can do this, I will only need to change out the toilet, vanity and mirror and I will have a beautiful bathroom that reflects that period. Any suggestions?

    Save the pink bathrooms!! We have been living in a 1950’s ranch with the original pink guest bathroom for 19 years. And love it! We have updated all rooms but decided early on to keep the original pink bathroom. We are now needing to replace a few tiles. I have looked online and notice there are several colors of pink. Pink dusty rose, pink salmon, pink cotton…
    any advise on how to pick the exact pink replacement tiles?

    I think you just need to order samples of any pink tiles that you think might match — also check your local ReStore or salvage yard to see if they might have some vintage tile that matches your pink. Good luck!
