Designing with bold colors is one of the benefits of living in the South, as all of the sunlight we get flatters bright colors. In this piece, we’ll talk about the current museum exhibit on Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, who have both embraced vibrant colors.

The Frida & Diego exhibit is currently running at the High Museum in Atlanta, and it features over 120 paintings by Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, one of 20th century Mexico’s most famous couples.  Frieda painted hundreds of vivid portraits, of herself and people she knew.  They have a decidedly Surrealist edge, with beautiful marriages of colors and faces, and strong contrasts of light and dark.  Diego, a muralist, was also fond of bold colors. He was a decade older than Frida when they married in 1929. Together, the pair lived in a now famous house in Mexico City. Frida’s half is sky blue, while Diego’s is red and white.
