hi, unfortunately i don't know the colors the teacup display was surprise birthday gift. the cubbies were painted first with the pink that was intended to match the wall and then a layer of crackle and the final layer of paint matched the shade of the adjacent wall which was then painted a bright light blue.
thank you so much for compliment! the feature has been so much fun!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Every surface of Engelbach’s 800-square-foot apartment is stamped with playful nostalgia.Decorative furniture painter Kerry Beasley, one of her closest friends, transformed a plain white table by adding a leopard pattern to the base. Instead of a traditional chain sleeve for her pink chandelier, Engelbach used faux flowers to create the illusion of a garden sprouting from the ceiling. “When the windows are open, I can hear people comment about it from the street,” she says. Painted shelves hold a teacup collection from her grandmother. “One of [my grandmother’s] talents was embellishing and painting china,” Engelbach says. “Not only did I receive her name, but her passion of collecting as well.” Dining table: The Conran Shop (now closed); pink chandelier: ABC Carpet & Home; oil painting: Leonard Creo
“Jeanie Engelbach describes her candy-inspired home as, ‘[If] Pee Wee Herman opened a pop culture museum in Candy Land.’ ” — Rikki SnyderThis is one of the most spot-on (and entertaining) descriptions I’ve read in a while. Plus, in a sea of careful neutral palettes, it’s a joy to see someone create a home that celebrates bold color and shows off personal collections.Full story: Candy-Colored Collections Wow in Manhattan
Laura Gaskill added this to Simple Pleasures: A Room of Your Own
A place for going wild with color. Imagine if you had a hideaway as vibrant in color and art as Frida Kahlo’s Blue House in Coyoacan, Mexico. If you love to express yourself with color but have to practice restraint in shared spaces, make your room an explosion of your favorite hues.See more of this candy-colored home in Manhattan
Things, by their very nature, are fleeting. They get lost, burn in fires and break. To put more value on things than yourself and others seems backward and sets you up for disappointment. Don’t keep something you hate simply because it has monetary value. If the item doesn’t bring you a warm memory or enhance your life in some way, why not free yourself from it? Sometimes the best action you can take for your own well-being is to simply let something go.
