So for Part 2 of our Fresh Paint Feature we have the fresh bold hues for those of you that like a bit more drama and a maybe a little edge to your decor. Here they are, my favorite colors with real personalities.
FRESH PAINT – BOLD:
#1. Hague Blue – Farrow & Ball (The Mysterious One)
It doesn’t get much deeper or moodier than this navy blue. It’s not too purple, not too green and just dark enough (which is quite dark depending on the lighting). The Balcony Gardener herself, Isabelle Palmer, (mentioned in my earlier posts about my own Balcony Garden here and here) chose this deep tone to bring some drama to her London flat. Check out the rest of her home of 14 years right here.
#2. Blue Danube – Benjamin Moore (The Wanderer)
A medium blue that works well in modern spaces. Here it’s used in a teenage boy’s bedroom designed by Anthony Todd.
#3. Teresa’s Green – Farrow & Ball (The Sassy One)
#4. Split Pea – Benjamin Moore (The Unapologetic One)
A fresh chartreuse-inspired green that’s just bright enough without being too overpowering. The kitchen, designed by Anne Marie Midy and Jorge Almada, uses a pop of the color in the backsplash amongst neutrals. This is a great way to bring just a pop of color into a space without letting it get too bossy! I’m always looking for interesting colors and unique combinations that make bold choices work. What about you? What are your favorite BOLD colors?
