A child plays on a Nugget on a bed, with cushions and pillows placed on the floor around them. The colors are Atlantis and Brightside, a sunny, cheerful mango.Brightside’s easy-going nature and sunny disposition makes it a breeze to style. What we love so much about this color (well, one of many reasons we love this color!) is that it can easily be friends with subtle shades, like our misty agave, Daybreak, as well as bold, bright hues, like Starfish, Cactus, and Lolly. Read on for more of our favorite combos.Three children grinning up at camera while lying down on a Brightside Nugget

A Sunny, Cheerful Shade

If you’re wondering how to describe Brightside, it’s a true mango – not quite a yellow, not exactly an orange, simply… Brightside!

Compared to Honeybee, our light and buttery yellow, Brightside is more saturated and brighter, with orange tones.

Brighten Up Your Days

It comes as no surprise that, with a name like Brightside, this color loves other brights. We particularly love it paired with Lolly, Cactus, and Starfish – what fun!

An Unexpected Pairing

We love Daybreak and Brightside in modern homes and Montessori-inspired playrooms. This unexpected pairing brings together a pastel shade with a brilliant pop of color.
