When Pinky Beige works on Exterior
I had the best day today, I kept jumping out of the car taking pictures of the painted ladies in San Francisco–way more fun for me than a museum. I was in colour heaven! You all know how I feel about pinky beige. Here it is with orange. See how dirty it looks? A yellow or green beige (if it had to be a neutral would have been much better). I think one of the only combinations where it works is the Wedgewood Hotel in Vancouver (below).

Here is the same colour but paired with navy blue and I think it looks fabulous. So that’s it. If your house is pinky beige but you can’t afford to change it yet, get out the blue paint. Greeny gray works too but navy blue really makes this colour appear current and sophisticated.
So there. I know you probably thought you’d never hear me say anything good about this colour, but there is a first time for everything! I will share the rest of the painted ladies when I’m back home.
Hope you are having a Happy Weekend 🙂
