    Not necessarily my cause, but I'm sure there are others in the FL who would agree to save the pink bathroom.

    One article on the website describes this incredible score that someone saved from the landfill. I could hardly believe what I was looking at.

    I'd donate to the cause, but I've already donated to "Save the Whales/Harp Seals/Three-toed tree sloths/and Albino Hedgehog".

    If our 1958 ranch home had any pink bathrooms, I'd save them. But alas, we only have aqua blue and peach!

    Wow to find all the stuff new in a box in the trash. Would make you weak.

    Not that that's a bad choice of colors. Remember, you are the lady of the house, and if you want a pink bathroom, then should have it. You could always renovate with NOS stuff.

    My dad has a pink bathroom in his house (the house I grew up in). Built in 1968 -- still has the original pink toilet, sink, tub, and floor tiles.

    I'm one of those obsessive people who must have a white bathroom suite. It comes from my mother: One house we moved into had a pink suite, and it was the first thing she had ripped out.

    However, if I lived in the Pink Palace... ;)

    I believe that the Pink Palace has been demolished by the new owners, 2009 IIRC.
     
  10. There was a home around here years ago that had a room like that with a pole in the center of the room.:rolleyes:

    DROOL! I wish I had the money to buy that kitchen set. *sigh* Thank God that woman found them before they were hauled to the dump!
     
  12. That is a mold issue waiting to happen :eeek:
     
  13. Wow.... what a great kitchen set!

    I have a pink bathroom from 1951 and I'm a member :D

    I had a lavender bathroom in a house I owned in Reno. Original sink and bathtub from 1929, I love it.

    Once I have a place of my own, I'm getting a pink bathroom. hah
    If it were really up to me, I'd build a replica of the Pink Palace! :)

    My building opened in 1939, and the bathrooms all had nice varieties of subtle shades, pinks, grays, greens, and other interesting shades. My bathroom just has a simple gray and white scheme, unfortunately. And the first thing people seem to want to trash when they move in are the perfectly functional and attractive bathrooms.
    What Pam is really promoting here is not just pink, but the whole panoply of interesting colors that vintage and retro bathrooms have been decorated in over the years.

    I'll save the fuzzy pink bathroom! :)
    Mine was grey and white, built in 1955.
    On the other side of town, a friend's house has a pink bathroom all original and in great condition. His house was built the same year, but in a better part of town...back then.

    Yep! Englebert Humperdink owned it for many years, and would have sold it to Anna Nicole Smith if she had paid his price.

    But you'd rather save Jayne lol

    What a find! I like pink bathrooms, but do not have one lol Maybe once I'm married, I'll be able to justify it.

    You're secret is out Tom!
    C-Dot, I'd take both actually. That bathroom is really cool.
    With the right vent fan you'd decrease the mold/mildew factor.
    I installed a lightfixture/vent fan in our bathroom (being careful here...) that's 120 cfm. Used when showering and for a few minutes afterwards, the bathroom has no humidity whatsoever. Prior to that, the old fan didn't pull enough and we'd get mildew on the edge of the ceiling.
