When it came time to update this 1959 pink bathroom, one thing was clear—the pink wasn’t going anywhere.
So You Have A Pink Bathroom…
Homeowners Annette and Alan Vartanian have found creative solutions to preserving its iconic midcentury elements while meeting the needs and personality of their family.
“Vintage pink bathrooms are a rare breed,” says Annette. Wanting to keep as much of the pink as possible, she saved the original Venetian pink sink and shower tiles. The latest pink addition to the bath is the toilet—which was sourced to match the other elements.
Mixing Vintage with New
One original element of the bathroom that had to go? The tile flooring. It hadn’t been set properly so the couple replaced it with matte white hexagon tiles. The pattern adds an extra dose of retro flair to the space while keeping it bright.
As for the wallpaper, Annette jumped at the chance to honor one of her favorite shows, “The Golden Girls” by pairing Cole & Son’s ‘Palm Jungle’ print with the pink tile.
Subtle accents, like a modern brass vase and lush textured towels, tie together the pink bathroom—transforming it into a chic modern paradise.
