One out of four homes built in the U.S. from 1946-1966 had the color pink in the bath. Post WWII exuberance is cited as the reason behind pink's household popularity. Today, pink is also referred to as salmon, coral, hot pink, fuchsia, blush, flush and rose. And by the way, America is home to more plastic flamingos than real ones.

The Roycroft name came from Samuel and Thomas Roycroft, who printed beautiful books in 17th century London. The meaning of Roycroft was “King's Craft,” a term for the achievement of high skill. A popular house trim color in the 1930s and 1940s, today this moody green contrasts well with fine wood furniture as it highlights natural wood tones.

Neutral colors like beige were very much the rage in the 1920s. Today, one of Sherwin-Williams' best-selling colors of all time, Kilim Beige, adds a subtle warmth to larger, open spaces and is a prime choice for trim and ceilings.
