The Pink Palace

When I was writing the retro bathing suit post, I came across pictures of Jayne Mansfield’s famous Pink Palace, which I always heard of but for some reason never took the time to research. Why did it take me so long to see photographs of this wondrous place?!

I can’t deal with this black and gold bathroom. Are YOU seeing this? AMAZING.

I’m fainting right now:

Floor to ceiling cotton candy carpet? I’d go insane in the loveliest way. Like a genie in a bottle bo. OMG

Could you get work done in an office like this? I probably could. Well, I’d get a lot of things done in that office. WINK HELLO

Her husband Mickey Hargitay built the famous heart-shaped swimming pool.

I’m really bummed this was demolished seven years ago. But at least I have the Madonna Inn to get my fix. I wonder if Jayne visited the Madonna too?

@Tiffany – I KNOW I HATE THIS STORY

@Jillie – Engelbert Humperdinck (I think I spelled that right without googling FYI) owned it then sold it to developers who destroyed it! I wonder what is in it’s place :( Probably a Starbucks :(

@Celisse – The pool is AMAZING! Everything is. I can stare at these pics forever!

@ElDulceAmorCouture – It’s so fucked up. :(

@sarah – doesn’t look real!

@Loulou – Lets dew it! Also your friend is adorable! I love the picture!
