go bold or go home.

bold and colorful interior inspiration / sfgirlbybay

Julien Fernandez/Gap Interiors for inside out magazine.

the new issue of inside out magazine features this jaw droppingly bold and beautiful bedroom, and it got my colorful side in overdrive. i always want to decorate with color, but then there’s this part of me that wants things a little more on the subdued side. but i admire the guts it takes to paint a wall turquoise and be all, ‘yeah, so?’ — it takes nerves of steel and a brave heart to make these kinds of statements. but then there’s rooms with loads of fresh white and just a few pops of bravado, and i like those too — i think that’s as far as my nerve goes. let’s all sit back and admire some of these spaces vicariously, shall we?

    All lovely spaces but the second is my fave. First, all the plants give the room such a feeling of life; and second, the large black hanging fixture just grounds all the color and light in the room. Congrats on your new house which will soon be a home for you and Lucy. Greetings to your mom.

    So many beautiful colours! I love it! I feel like it would be impossible to be unhappy in a home that looks like that.

    Beautiful colors and interior!


  7. I love that turquoise! And after all, it’s paint. You can always paint it back to white if you get sick of it ;)

    Yesss! I’m all about bold interiors! I love all the warm reds and pinks in these rooms!

    LOVE! Bold colors are just my style ~ and these reds and pinks are beautiful! Thanks so much for sharing.

    Hey, try a color ~ like the turquoise ~ I think you’d love it!


  10. Wow, it’s lovely to see such a colourful home… I always like the almost all-white scandinavian homes (although I live in a rather colourful apartment), but this one is so well-balanced and happy, I just love it!

  11. Nowadays, you should be very brave to decorate your home like that. It’s a little bit different, but it looks amazing. I am in love with that bedroom. I will try to redecorate mine. It looks just amazing and neat. Then it will be a whole pleasure to spend my day at home!
