Maybe it’s because I’ve been re-watching “Dexter,” which features a lot of retro, art-deco Miami décor, but I’m having a moment with colorful vintage bathrooms. The pink tile trend became incredibly popular in the 1950s, but you’d be hard-pressed to find a home that still has all the original candy-hued fixtures and décor. I know minimalist, all-white bathrooms are all the rage on Pinterest and Instagram, but you have to appreciate the charm and kitsch of these vibrant powder rooms.
This vintage bathroom is the epitome of kitsch and glamour.
I love how these homeowners kept some of the original charm of the space while still making it work for them.
Baby blue fixtures add such a fun spin on this bathroom.
Pedestal sinks are a fixture of classic retro bathrooms.
Turquoise bathrooms became highly coveted in the 1960s as colors moved away from pastel pinks to more “groovy” trends.
Old meets new in this perfectly pink tiled bathroom.
This brilliant bathroom is original to the 1933 Spanish-style California bungalow, and features green tiles and butter-yellow fixtures.
Such an emphatically classic pink bathroom! I love the maroon fixtures and tile.
This bathroom brings in warm trends of the late ’60s and early ’70s while still keeping those baby blue fixtures, which are so classically retro.
This 1940’s bathroom is actually an updated renovation that built upon the original beautiful features.
