I guess what I never realized when I looked at that pink is that it wasn't the girly color that we think of today. Instead, it was linked to elegance and refinement. Something many, many Americans wanted in their own homes. And from the mid 1950's to the early 60's, it was used in bathrooms and kitchens all over America. Look at how the marketers glammed it up in this 1958 Kohler advertisement.
With all the American history behind it, it makes me feel somewhat guilty about changing this bathroom. But I really, really hate pink tile. And I just can't see this as a selling feature for buyers in the 21st century. Since we don't have the iconic tub and sink....just some pink walls, what do you think? Is it terrible to de-pink this bathroom?
