Pink, pink, and more pink! During the 1950s pink made a big entrance into the daily lives of Americans across the country. Pink was incorporated into just about anything imaginable from pink bathrooms and kitchens with matching accessories, to clothing, cars, and more! However, this leads the question of why? Some attribute the popularity of the color to Former First Lady, Mamie Eisenhower, who was very fond of the color. The First Lady had painted countless homes (and particularly bathrooms) in her favorite color throughout her husband's military career and continued the trend into the White House. With the public closely watching the White House and the Presidential family, pink soon became a staple in interior design resulting in millions of pink bathrooms and kitchens. To learn more about the 1950s and 1960s, drop by the Aztec Museum to see an entire room dedicated to the iconic decades that shaped Aztec and the surrounding communities.
