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 pink 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 because blue is fabulous with pink beige.
So that’s it. If your house is pink beige but you can’t afford to change it yet, get out the blue paint. Or cream. Cream goes with earth tones including brown and white goes with fresh including black.
Green gray works too but it will feel 90s. Navy blue or other shades of fresher blues 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 🙂
