Giveaway Time + 'Geranium' by Benjamin Moore + Thanks Bedford Brown

Look at this striking wall color which makes the whimsical white lamp just pop. This vignette captured my attention while touring a spectacular condo designed by Bedford Brown in Portland's 2009 Street Of Dreams. In a post on the home show, which highlighted this room among many other favorite scenes, I asked "what exactly is this red+orange color? I must find out."

Thank you Tony Loeffler of Bedford Brown, the team behind the design, for providing the answer in a comment on the post.

The fabulous color is Geranium by Benjamin Moore. Now I just have to figure out where I can place just the right amount of this color...somewhere in my home!

And if I were to coordinate jewelry with home decor I would most certainly select this Stella & Dot Garden Party Necklace as the perfect accompaniment to any room painted Geranium! What piece of jewelry will you select should you win the $150 Giveaway? Enter now, the giveaway ends tonight!


  1. I love the contrast of the white lamp against the red wall. If you were to paint any room in your house with the "Geranium" color, what room would you choose?

  2. I LOVE that color. Especially against the white. It would work for a multitude of applications and styles. Modern furniture. A traditional wall with white dentil molding. An eclectic guest bath.
    Thanks for sharing, I love finding new colors.

  3. How about the back of your book shelves in your family room? I'm thinking of using a similar shade i the back of my kitchen cabinets (glass doors).

  4. That color caught my attention since you first posted pics of the tour. I can't wait to see what you do with it.

  5. Love that color- almost enough to re-paint my bookshelves that I just did teal...well almost, painting is no fun

    Have a good weekend! Oh and if you want to pick my name for the giveaway I'll be your best friend forever haha :)

  6. that is a nice color that would a bit of drama to a room. are you seriously going to use it? if so, I can't wait to see where!!

  7. I meant to say add a bit of drama to a room! sorry!

  8. Wow, that's an amazing color! I'm going to have to go to the paint store to see it and figure what I can paint that color in my house!

  9. Yes, I really am thinking about using this color!

    I need to get a sample and figure out if it is too much for a wall in the powder room, or even...a wall in my husband's office! Ha! Do you think I'd have success in getting that past him?!



Now I Would Love To Hear What You Think!
