Color Day 2013: Product Roundups by Color

I knew when we decided to have an entire day devoted to COLOR that I’d want to roundup my favorite products, organized by color. Though I primarily wear black and white in my personal life, I love to imagine a bolder version of myself that isn’t afraid to dress in head-to-toe blue, red or orange. Not that I can pull off any of those colors from top to bottom, but a girl can hope. Until that day I’ll just try adding in a bright necklace or a pair of blue shoes. Maybe one day I’ll be bold enough to wear one of those neon scarves… xo, grace

  1. Love all of it especially the Smeg fridge.

  2. Colour day should be a international holiday! I love all the fantastic images and history you have shared. I am a textile designer and am always looking for unexpected colour combos. My go to place is always fine art and history. Colours conger so many feelings but often have untold stories. Thanks so much.

    Love it all, but there is a mint green shelf in the blue section :-)

    1. Grace Bonney says:


      the mint green is actually more of a robin’s egg blue in person :)

    The world should be organized by color, it’d be so much more whimsical. Love the green Smeg fridge! That gummy bear on a stick makes me wonder if I’ve had enough snacks today, I’m not sure how I feel about that. St Petersburg Architect

  5. Love the yellow wall shelve. For my wishlist thatś for sure. :)

    Ahhh! I absolutely LOVE that you amazing people at Design Sponge have started posting about color~
    Not a whole lot of people realize how much of an influence color can be in their lives. I can’t even begin to explain how warm my heart gets I get when I see a good color combo! Keep it coming!

  7. So many cute items in all of those color combinations!! which to choose….

  8. An excellent selection – blue is for me, I think. I’ve definitely had a swing towards yellow lately, though, seeing as it’s spring. I need honey bee/bumble bee stuff for the next few months. Spring demands this stuff – thanks Design Sponge more please!

    1. Grace Bonney says:

      hi elvira

      can you tell me what images you’re missing?


  12. Flynn says:

    I can’t see a bunch of the products either, just the thumbnails. I’d really like to see the product info of the yellow one with the umbrella.
