Fraaands far and wide, I’d like to cordially introduce you to a brand new monthly series on JessicaBrigham.com: Color of the Month!!
The goal: to equip and empower you with the finest (and boldest) home inspiration on the gosh darn internet. And enough so that you’ll reign in the risk.
I’m not afraid of color, but I wasn’t always that way! Here I’ll inspire you to embrace new, crazy, wild ideas and try them out, too. I want you to trust your creative gut and GO FOR IT, GIRL!
Color of the Month:
💕💕💕 PINK!!! 💕💕💕
Is this even real?! This daring exterior paint color paid off in my mind’s eye. Built in 1973 by Ricardo Bofill, La Muralla Roja de Calpe is an apartment building on the Southeast coast of Spain. Funny fun fact: La Muralla Roja means “the red wall.” Call it any color you want, this piece of architecture is exquisite. You should see the rest of the building, check it out here.
Do you LOVE bold colors? Then try mixing and matching them!! This is one zany, vibrant risk that PAID OFF. Painted with Peony by Benjamin Moore, I love how designer Noz Nozawa describes her color choice as a “chic take on Barbie pink.” Sure as heck is, Noz.
Blush on blush on blush … I’m game. The traditional and ornate panel molding painted in a modern, monochromatic pink is a serious winner in my book. Sometimes a little uniformity can pay off A LOT.
If you need baby steps to blend bold colors, start small and focus a focal point like a door or fireplace. This showstoppin’ front door in Noble Blush by Behr is the icing on today’s deliciously pink cake. This pop of color adds just the right amount of pizzazz to Elsie Larson’s modern glam hallway.
Is this crazy?! Maybe. Outlandish? Most definitely. BUT I LOVE IT. There’s always one room in any house where risks can be taken (a craft, laundry or kids room, for example). The maximalist nd frenetic vibes of The Pink Zebra of the Feast India Company are nothing short of inspiring. Seriously, take a closer look at this place here.
Precious pink vanities, FTW! Amirite?! The touch of pale pink brightens up this powder room and ties in all of the beautiful finishes—that gorgeous brass orb fixture, the brass pulls, white and dark grout hex tile, and classic subway tile backsplash. I’m in sweet, pinky love. Simple as that.
Nothing goes quite as well with pink than greenery, especially different varieties and textures. A mid century touch doesn’t hurt either. Spice up your lounge space with an accent wall that goes, “HI, I’M PINK AND I LOVE YOU.” C’mon, just give it a try.
OK, it is toooo crazy to design a dining room or lounge like Sketch in London? HECK NO. Those brass cuffs so gently hugging those succulent pink velvet booths 🤤 it’s a magnificent, colorful ballet in my brain. Without a doubt, monochromatic color prevails.
Pink is incredibly versatile. It can be understated or bold AF. I truly hope seeing this collection of pink color inspiration has inspired your vibrant, color-lovin’ soul to break out some swatches and get cracking. You’ll never know unless you try.
One day I’ll design an entire room in the same color. One day.
