One Girl’s Search for Pink

Finding that perfect match isn’t easy.  When it comes to establishing tone in a space it all starts with color. This week’s #WednesdayWonder is a stunning accent wall in a newly renovated apartment in Brooklyn. Nekisia Davis is starting fresh in a space she converted from a dated and drab office unit into an open floor plan home. We’ll be featuring the space in an upcoming #QueerInterior feature, but we loved the color of this wall and it’s inspiration story so much we had to share these behind the scenes images expertly shot by Erin Albrecht.

The color is Wild Watermelon by Behr and it’s a vibrant pink that works wonders for the space. So how’d she pick such a bold and unique color, prying minds have to know! We love Nekisia’s style, a fan of stylish camp and fun her inspiration board for the space ranges from LA bungalow, to The Golden Girl’s beach-side home and even to Lena Dunham’s hit show GIRLS.

While watching the show this season she paused on a scene between actors Zosia Mamet and Richard E Grant sitting on a bed in a pink hued room at the Gramercy Hotel. She had to have the color and rang the hotel the next day.  She’s in good company or in this case good taste; interior designer Julian Schnabel re-imagined the rooms in 2006 with vibrant and bold choices inspired by the renaissance revival style. The hotel informed her that it was a custom color and she made it her job to find a color that moved her just as much, “I love that pink so much and I think I’ll always have a wall that’s somewhere in the spectrum.”
