Ahead of the Brighten the Corners: Bringing Color into Your Home panel at Dwell on Design, we offer some full-spectrum inspiration from projects previously featured in the magazine. At Dwell founder Lara Deam's house in Mill Valley, California, a 2,000-pound door pivots open, painted an electric acid green. Says Chris Deam, Lara's husband, "deciding on the color was nerve-racking. It’s a one-shot deal because it’s painted in place, so you’ve got to be committed to your choice. We looked at a lot of colors, and we finally narrowed it down to two greens—one was a soft sea foam and the other was this acid green. In the end we said, “Let’s go for it.” It’s going to be such a big part of the design, it needs to scream a little bit." Photo by Dustin Aksland. Photo by Dustin Aksland.
