From the article:
It just doesn’t get much more kitsch (or pink) than screen siren Jayne Mansfield’s Sunset Boulevard home circa 1960. Floor to ceiling shag carpets, heart-shaped swimming pool, fireplaces and bathtubs, gold-plated fixtures a plenty, and of course, pink f**king everything.
Photographed by LIFE photographer Allan Grant in 1960, the mid 20th century sex symbol shows us around her 40-room mansion, dubbed “the Pink Palace”, which she shared with her husband Mickey Hargitay.
Mickey Hargitay must have been a better man than any I know to have been able to keep from going completely insane every morning he woke up in that house. Then again, I suppose he was crowned Mr. Universe 1955.
And he also built their heart-shaped swimming pool himself, which he personalised with “I love you, Jayne”, in gold leaf mosaic.
Before Ringo Starr later lived in the Mediterranean-style house, it was eventually demolished in 2002. I’m not sure if this is a bit of a tragedy or a favour to human kind.
