The color pink had a different meaning for the people in 1950’s

Pink was an exceptionally popular color for the bathrooms and kitchens during that time…
Actually, pink was the favorite color of Mamie Eisenhower. She loved the color so much that she had her cotton balls have the pink color!
To all who are unfamiliar with Mamie Eisenhower, her full name was Mamie Geneva Doud Eisenhower, who was the wife of United States President Dwight D. Eisenhower, and also the First Lady of the United States of America.

Inspired from ‘Mamie Pink’

..the color soon became a national symbol for the American household.
Mamie redefined the shades of color Pink.
Making it to be the ideal model for the American housewives.

Mamie was described as:
A very down-to-earth person, who loved to play scrabble and watch soap operas. She wore noisy bracelets.

Pink became a symbol of class as well as patriotism because of Mamie.

Also, pink was certainly not considered as a ‘girly’ color.

More than 5 million people had imitated this pink kitchen design for their houses.

Haha! This one is interesting to know.
The presidential headquarters contained so much of pink because of which the White House was actually dubbed the “Pink Palace.”

The appliances were pink as well. Ladies… I know what you are wishing for!

The appliances still have the original time capsule.

Are they in a working condition today? I doubt that.

Well, it’s fun to see the products of that time.
It is a little piece of American history.
