The pink palace

In 1957, playmate and actress Jayne Mansfield  bought a 40-rooms mansion on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, and decorated like she wanted: the house was painted pink, with cupids surrounded by pink fluorescent lights, pink furs in the bathrooms, a pink heart-shaped bathtub, a fountain spurting pink champagne, and then dubbed it the “Pink Palace”. Her husband, a plumber and carpenter before getting into bodybuilding, built a pink heart-shaped swimming pool and lived in the house with her (God knows how, poor man).

I have to say, it is so kitsch that it’s amazing.
