  1. I still love the little black and white floor tiles in the bathroom. I really love retro everything!


  2. I don't have to think hard! I live in a 1961 era house with original bathrooms: one is pink ceramic tile with grey fixtures (tub sink and toilet) and the other is grey ceramic tile with pink fixtures. I still have pink "boomerang" Formica on the countertops in one of them!

  3. I grew up in a development. Our bathroom was yellow, white and black and my uncle's house one house down the street had pink, black and white. My mother used Comet and scrubbed the finish off that poor tub. When they sold their house, about 5 years ago, it was IMMACULATE and the bathroom was still the same. I know that it was redone by the new owner.
