I have bubblegum-pink walls in my apartment and can proudly verify the joy that color brings to my life. One of them is sure to speak to your soul. If you’re itching for some change, might I suggest painting your home a candy color too? Backdrop and Coming Soon both believe that paint is a central element of design that’s equal parts artistic expression and function. And what’s a new collab without merch? Paint brand Backdrop and New York design store Coming Soon have collaborated on a limited-edition palette of three vibrant paint colors: Barragán-Cito, a poppy pink inspired by Mexican architect Luis Barragán’s work; Blue is the Coolest Color, a nod to the cerulean interiors found in Italy; and Pretty Ugly, a bold olive green to round out the selection. The paint gallons are sold for $65 each, and the T-shirts are $30. Each paint is accompanied by a T-shirt with the name of the color slapped on the back. Find them at backdrophome.com, comingsoonnewyork.com, and at Coming Soon’s New York location (37 Orchard St., New York, NY 10002) for pickup or appointment only. Even the cans are a objets d’art — meant to be displayed, collected, and upcycled as vases, bookends, or in whatever manner you feel inspired. Photo: Courtesy of Coming Soon.
