The boudoir and en suite bathroom of the voluptuous bombshell actress, Jayne Mansfield, has become iconic. It is best known for the heart-shaped gold lined bathtub with pink carpeted…um…well…EVERYTHING!
The feminine theme of her home simply screams boudoir. Of her estate, one could say that the heart served as the crest (CHALLENGE: How many hearts can you find?). It was a respite oasis and a palace of sorts that provided a dreamy backdrop for her her life.
There are many things about this home that I love (and some that I would pass on…i.e. carpeted walls). Nobody can deny that this was a special unique home that had Jayne’s signature all over it.
Here are some of the things I love about it:
I love the framed photos/magazine covers along the stairwell.
I love the living room with the balcony overlooking it.
I love that she had a scrapbook in her office.
I love that she has a pink bar of soap next to her bath.
I love her powder puff on a stick.
I love the arched doorway with gates.
I love the nursery.
I love her gold mirror and brush set.
I love her tray of lipsticks next to the sink.
I love the glass bottle next to her bath, that likely held bubble bath.
I love the pink rotary telephone.
I love the brass chair with pink cushion.
I love a pink boudoir with gold accents (though hers was a bit over-the-top).
And, finally, I love the fact that she made this home her own with her signature style.
