Get Happy! We Matched The Colors of Happy Place

Happiness comes in many shapes and sizes. For some it may be a meticulously planned getaway and for others, it could simply be a state of mind. In Los Angeles, however, you can discover it at an actual location.

Opened in November and set to run through early January 2018, Happy Place is the latest spot in the recent movement of interactive exhibits popping up all over Los Angeles. The joy-eliciting concept came to life through founder Jared Paul’s desire to “create a special place filled with smiles and laughter for all.”

For a full hour, visitors of all ages can roam thirteen rooms filled with a range of experiential installations. If you’re unable to pay a visit to Happy Place though, fear not. With Dunn-Edwards' wide spectrum of paint colors, you can bring the same sense of exuberance right into your own home. Recreate any (or all) of the exhibit’s brilliant hues — from radiant shades of yellow to whimsical purples to bright reds — for a dose of happiness on the daily.

This wacky room has a unique pastel graphic print with purple as the dominant color. Smashed Grape (DE5963) offers a subtle, yet still eye-catching purple that would work well as a gender-neutral shade.
