7 Bright Color Ideas Inspired by San Francisco's Color Factory
Take design inspo from this trending pop-up museum and add a punch of bold color to your home.
If you’re like most of us, you’ve been experiencing a serious case of #FOMO while scrolling through Instagram coming across images of the Color Factory that’s currently taking place in San Francisco. This 12,000-square-foot, two-story interactive exhibition full of wonderfully bright colors, sold out so quickly that it made our heads spin. Featuring works by several notable artists including Jacob Dahlgren, Tom Stayte and Geronimo Balloons, the Color Factory pop-up experience is a bright color lover's fantasy come true.
The Color Factory is steps ahead when it comes to impressing Instagrammers and tech-geeks alike: Attendees are given a polka-dot ID card which is used to activate cameras in each of the rooms. One quick pose in front of a camera, a scan of your ID card and the photo instantly goes to your inbox. With a scratch and sniff room, to a room full of gorgeous blue orbs hanging in the air, the Color Factory truly has something for everyone.
After the popularity of the pop-up experience caused them to extend the opening dates twice already (currently through mid-November), the tickets have gone like hot cakes, selling out within hours. Although rumor has it they might bring the pop-up to NYC eventually, we went ahead and put together a list of rooms inspired by the Color Factory that will make you want to incorporate a bit of boldness and fun into your current home design!
