99 ideas to decorate a pink bathroom: Complete slide show

99-ideas-pink-bathroom-FB-graphic (1)About a month ago, I got another *brilliant* idea — ummm, one that meant an *epic* amount of eye-crossing work for Katiedoodle, of course! Yes, super thanks to SuperKate for doing a massive amount of research — then an equally massive amount of clipping and pasting — to create our 99 ideas to decorate a pink bathroom. 

Thanks also to the readers who contributed mood boards! We actually have one more to mock up — we’ll hit #100!

Why did we do this project? We are constantly getting questions about how to decorate pink bathrooms — which I believe were the most popular colorway for American bathrooms throughout the 1950s and into the early 1960s.

In addition: The basic techniques we used to make all these design boards apply to decorating a vintage bathroom with virtually any color tile on the wall. In a nut: Find a patterned shower curtain or wallpaper with that color tile; the pattern will include a variety of other coordinating colors — bring those colors into the rest of the room. Edit carefully; keep the palette within a relatively narrow range, and you likely will have success. See this followup story –> A foolproof guide to choosing bathrooms colors — five steps to success:

    We have decided to embrace and restore our fabulous pink and green bathroom but are a bit overwhelmed and could use a little guidance. The walls are pink tile with a dark pink tile border. There is also a band of pink and green accent tile. Our tub is green and has awesome tile swans on the wall. The toilet is white and the sink and vanity need to be replaced (they are awful replacements from the 70’s). Not sure what direction to go. It’s not realistic to replace the tub but haven’t found green toilet or sink that aren’t budget busters. I can send you pictures. Your ideas would be appreciated.
    Thanks, Pam

    Hi there! Do you happen to know where the “That’s why her hair is so big, it’s full of secrets.” shower curtain is from?
