Pink the sink

Pink the sink

I know we’ve run Burlington’s ranges before recently but if their PR is going to INSIST on sending me sink shots that take me right back to bath night aged seven, then I’m afraid it’s going to get published. Latest in the company’s retro show is their bespoke Confetti Pink Edwardian Basin with Standard Pedestal in its signature dusty damask. And to think that builders everywhere were once tearing this kind of colour out of home refurbs by the skip full. So Burlington, tell me, how far dare you push the irony? Avocado??
