Reminds me of a project by architect Charles Moore....

I believe it was at the famous Sea Ranch where he used mailboxes as lockers.

Use black as an accent. Try for a 50's look or Art Deco style with lots of chrome mirrors etc. Try for a style to take the "edge" off the pink.

These are diazo process "whiteprints" - true blueprints stopped normal use in the mid 60's. These were made by shining light thru paper or mylar onto treated paper and then the paper processed using amonia fumes. They are not truely stable - exposure to light (esp. sunlight) and air will yellow them fast!

If you want to frame, any reproduction firm can make copies to plain paper. (They scan and print.) They can even photoshop and apply effects such as true "blueprints" - white text on blue background. Some firms can also inkjet print to othe medias such as canvas. Good luck!

I had the same situation at a former apartment.
I infilled opening - and set a hearth in front - with black smoked mirror I found. (someting from the 70's?) I then tiled over the edge of the mirror around the inside. It looked great esp. when I filled the hearth with white candles.
