Homeowners Give the Pink Sink Some Love

When it comes to pastel sinks in a vintage bath, some people love ’em and leave ’em. Would you?

In midcentury America many bathrooms were the colors of Jordan almonds. The basic fixtures — sink, tub, toilet — were pastel pink, light blue and minty green. The tile was often one of these Easter egg–like colors and accented with black borders. But as time marched on and tastes changed, pink sinks and their friends became items you typically spotted in “before” photos.

The pastel tide may be turning. I’m seeing more period baths that are wearing their old-school colors proudly — and there’s even a website that’s dedicated to their preservation.
