In Like With: Pink Bathroom Tile

So there seems to be a bug going around the design blog world lately which doctors are calling the ‘now we like pink tile bathrooms and think they’re super cool’ virus. Vintage 50’s pink baths are having a moment again. Some blushing beauties were recently featured on Apartment Therapy here and here. Which is cute and I’m really happy for pink tile. And of course, I love our redone bathroom and have no regrets about giving up our pink tile since we traded it for extra space and a layout that made good design sense. BUT…if I were to design a pink bathroom now, I would spin the peachy desert sunset hue of the tile to make the most of the current southwestern /// geometric /// tribal trends out there. It would look something like this, which of course, I’m in like with now.
