Coastal Maximalism

Every time when people talk about California coastal interiors, it is always kind of either white, cream or blueish color palettes with signature California lay-back vibes. But not for this one.  It is located right at Corona Del Mar , So Cal and has a perfect polished modern classical style with maximalism in mind. The home is owned by Jerrod Blandino and Jeremy Johnson, the co-founders of the California-based cosmetics brand Too Faced. Then, I guess you expect some big wows!

 

Interior designer Mary MacDonald create such wonderful color palettes for each room:

One More Shade of Blue

Blue is the world’s favorite color.   Yes,  there is a one more newest shade of blue and the name is YInMn, short for the chemicals it’s made from (Yttrium, Indium and Manganese, for you chemistry lovers).  It was discovered by Oregon State University scientists in 2009. The magic blue paint only reflects blue, is non-toxic and doesn’t fade.  Shepherd Color Company has licensed the patent and is already selling samples of YInMn blue.
