Pink and metallic gold mosaic tile in this vintage Sarasota bathroom

pink gold metallic tileHere is a scrumptious vintage bathroom — a Sarasota beauty covered in small mosaic ceramic tile glazed in soft pink and metallic gold. Reader Paul is a protector of pink bathrooms and writes:

Hi Pam,

The pink bathroom is in the home of my friends Bonnie and Kenny, here is Sarasota.

Thank you, Paul, for these wonderful photos — and for your defense o’ the pink. You know Sarasota is one of my favorite places, DH and I are on the lookout (when the time is right) for a little vacation bungalow there…

As Paul mentions, you can’t find pink and metallic gold mosaic ceramic tile just anywhere — but I know where. Come back at noon when I reveal my source.
