I've been flipping through some late 1950s magazines recently, namely Better Homes and Gardens and Life magazine. I love looking at old advertisements for cosmetics and clothing, but the adverts for household items are beyond amazing. It's no secret that the color pink was especially popular in this era. After about four ads for pink appliances, I became smitten with the idea of a pink laundry room, with a blush colored washer and dryer, of course!
