2002 Vermilion

Dependent on the lighting and time of day, the Golden Gate Bridge can lean from a rusty orange red to a deep brick red, showcased by the blue colors of the water and surrounding sky. Officially opening to traffic in 1937, the Golden Gate bridge is named over the waterway over which it runs, connecting the San Francisco bay to the Marin Headlands. The paint used on the Golden Gate Bridge is specially formulated to protect the bridge from the danger of rust from the oceans salt spray, and from the intense moisture of the for that frequently rolls in from the Pacific Ocean to the San Francisco Bay. The U.S. Navy originally lobbied for the bridge to be painted in blue and yellow stripes for increased invisibility, but when the steel arrived in San Francisco covered in primer with a burnt red hue, the consulting architect felt the color was highly visible and pleasing to the eye. Thus the iconic color of the bridge, officially called International Orange, was born.

The pastel blue tones of the California sky are infamous, bringing to mind sunny days spent by the beach of frolicking through a fruit orchard. In San Francisco however, the ubiquitous fog of the skyline makes for more grey skies than blue, but when the sun breaks through the blue hue of the skyline illuminates the city like a colorful painting. Using light blue tones in your home are said to invite soothing and calming energy into your home.

7035 Light Grey

Few cities are known for their fog the way San Francisco is, rolling in from the Pacific Ocean and blanketing the city in tones of misty grey. The heavy fog covers of the city can make for a chilly experience (layers are highly recommended), but the crisp colors of the grey sky can feel calming and cozy, making it the perfect neutral shade to invite into your home. A neutral palette like light grey can be paired with both bold and dramatic colors, or coordinating neutrals of the same shade family.
