It's funny - we had built-ins like that and took them out - it really opened up the room.

We also had a fireplace that was the exact same color as the walls - we painted the fireplace a coffee color and the walls a warm mustard color. All this was in the same room - took out 2 layers of carpet and put down used hardwoods.

Almost seems like we bought the same house!!!

If it's 50s, I hope it has a lime green refrigerator--or is that 70s?

green is 70s... now AQUA is 50s... I once temporarily owned a really cool 50s aqua apartment sized frig with moon shaped metal shelves that swung out... and a freezer that had to be defrosted once a month

Why do you want to rip out the pink bathroom? Those are GREAT!!!! Love'em, really. I'm not a "pink person" but those old 50's pink bathrooms can be a TON of fun.

Avocado greens and harvest golds are from the 70's as are all of the rusts. Baby blue, country blue, rose, mauve, etc are from the 80's and got carried over into the 90's from those late to the party. The 50's saw some of the pinks and blues and the lighter greens in the form of tiles for kitchen & baths as well as some yellows. The 60's we saw a lot of black fake leather furniture (think Mies van de Roh) coming from the late 50's onward.

Most things of 1950s vintage are wonderful

Congrats Geek - I'm very familiar with those types of homes and they just feel 'homey' to me.

I'm kinda sad the house flippers ripped out the aqua tiled bathroom that our house had, but I like the new one they made a lot too. We also had this really cool looking old aqua in-wall oven, love the look, but as somebody that enjoys cooking, I'm more happy with my modern oven/range.

I'm sort of rooting for BigDGeek to keep her pink bathroom too.

Well then come on over Lakewooder, you'd feel right at home at Chez Debsi as well.
