My favorite sink in Framingham

February 16th, 2008

My mom’s friend, who graciously allowed me to post about her sink but requested to remain anonymous, (so I’ll just call her “P”) lives in town and for years I’ve always admired her decision to decorate the bathroom in brown and white.
As you might guess from the theme of my blog, I love brown and I’ve never seen a brown sink anywhere else. 
“P” said when she was picking out the fixtures (sometime in the 70’s) she wanted to get a brown bathtub too but the plumber strongly suggested she didn’t and told her she would regret it later.
Unfortunately, she followed his advice, I would have loved to see the brown bathtub in there too.   “P” wants to update her bathroom but said I can have the sink when she does.  Ethan is “thrilled” of course, what we’ll do with it I don’t know (our 1 bathroom can only accommodate a  pedestal sink) but I just can’t bear the thought of this rarity ending up in a dumpster.


  1. I remember in my old house in Framingham the downstairs half bath was brown and beige. The sink and toilet were both brown.

    Sadly, the later owners of the home re-did the bathroom.

  2. That sink will go with my brown and shrimp colored tile in my bathrom. Circa 1959.

  3. Michelle – I have my old one from an old bathroom redo. Never got around to throwing it out. Its yours for the taking if you want it.

  4. My parents purchased a house built in 1984 and it had a dark brown Koehler sink. Depending on the type of water you have you can end up with some ugly water stains. As long as you keep it clean it is a great look!
