Mary Kay’s pink mansion goes on sale
Ms. Mary Kay Ash, who created the cosmetics giant Mary Kay Inc., was best known for her affinity with the color pink. It is known that the costimetics’ queen had many personal objects, which come in that shade, and one of them is on the market for sale. This relates to the $3.3 million price for her Pink Mansion, located in Dallas, Texas, which has some of her signature design ideas including the pink theme of the exterior, the pink bathtub with master bedroom, and also the pink quartz toilet. Apart from those large arches along the pathways, carved wooden artwork on walls and furniture, landscaped gardens, and sprawling private swimming are just some of the features of this property built by Ms. Ash. Though she may not have lived on this mansion since the 1990’s, she hasn’t left anything to be desired for in any part. Very reminiscent of her billion dollar cosmetics empire, which she built with equal care, and now generates around $2 billion in revenue each year.
