While many people living in homes and apartments built in the 1940s and 50s promptly remove the pink, blue, green or yellow bathroom vanities, bathtubs, sinks and tiles, others are embracing the retro feel of these spaces.
"I never considered pulling out the pink tub and toilet. That would be blasphemy!" homeowner Michelle Roberts told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "I knew I wanted to give the room an overhaul."
Roberts decided that black paint would help make a bold statement, and really showcase the bathroom's charm.
"The black paint was the most dramatic way to show modern design flair while remaining true to the vintage bones of the bathroom. I love the results. It brightens the green tile and pink tub and brings out the vintage feel of the bathroom, and because of the skylight, it's not too dark."
Roberts is among many who have embraced the vintage feel of their colorful bathrooms. Some choose to leave them alone to preserve the original style of their homes, while others are buying new bathroom fixtures that are manufactured to look retro.
"Several manufacturers of modern bathroom fixtures offer brand new lines that pay homage to the pink palaces of the past," the article by Amy Burger states.
