Color Factory | She & Him Adventures

If you missed out on tickets to the hyped but totally worth it Color Factory, then you're in luck, because the team behind the technicolor phenomenon has announced that the magical and colorful installation is opening in New York! Tickets will be released on Tuesday, July 17, at 9 AM EST! I highly suggest going. You just can't resist one more, or should I say a ton more colorful and aesthetically pleasing photo opportunities.
If you're wondering what is the Color Factory? Color Factory is the brainchild of Jordan Ferney, the founder of Oh Happy Day, and it is a collaborative experiential exhibit designed to awaken audiences to the everyday yet brilliant presence of color. San Francisco went bananas for the Color Factory! I was luckily enough to go when the Color Factory was in town. I had so much, this was the first of many interactive exhibitions that Ricky and I have visited. I figured since the Color Factory is reopening a new location, today would be the perfect day to share some pictures of my visit. So welcome to another She & Him Adventures!

Note: I did upload/edit these pictures a bit different than I normally do because I had so many pictures to share with you all, so I wanted to edit them so I can share more but not make it feel like an extremely long post. 
As we first entered the Color Factory we were welcomed by a vivid and beautiful rainbow staircase. 
I was so in love with this staircase, I even mentioned to Ricky that our future home needs a rainbow staircase or hallway. 
One of the first rooms we entered was this bright and colorful stripe room. This room also had a scratch and sniff wall which totally gave me Willy Wonka vibes but without the licking.
Towards the end of the room we were given a very delicious candy. It was sweet and chewy!
The next room was such a contrast, like literally it was black and white but totally my vibes. In this room we got another little snack. This time it was a charcoal lemonade!!! Yes charcoal! Even though it looked strange because it was black, it was delicious! It tasted like normal lemonade.

Knock, knock. Who’s there? Banana. Banana who? Knock, knock. Who's there? Orange! Orange who?
Orange you glad I didn't say Banana? Sorry I had to! Anyways...
Goldfish, cheese puff, life preserver and so many more orange colored objects were found in this room. I never thought I loved the color orange but this room definitely changed my mind.  
#NOTSPONDORED I repeat #NOTSPONDORED by Alaska. 
Did you ever wondered what it felt like to be inside a Lite-Brite? Well this room felt exactly like it. This room was very nostalgic, I use to love playing with my Lite-Brite. Ricky and I definitely enjoyed our time inside this room. It was so much fun moving the color around and seeing them lite up and we even managed to get some really nice pictures.  
Babe truly lights up my world!
Color me green? Next up, two illustrators created this large scale black and white mural, leaving the coloring up to you. This was more fun than you can ever imagine. The large five foot markers were so much fun to use. Even though Ricky and I took some really serious looking pictures in this room, we truly felt like two happy little kids. 
This picture!!! (insert heart-eyes emoji) I'm in love with this man!
Next up we went inside this incredible room filled with colorful ribbons! I under estimated how much ribbon was hanging. When I went inside I felt so lost because there was so much ribbon everywhere and the further you went in the darker it was. I'm not going to lie I was feeling a bit scared.
Can I just say I was speechless when I saw Ricky took this picture of me above! Love! Love! Love!
Next up, wasn't a room but a really rad hallway, I even managed to take this picture of Ricky taking a picture.
Colors, Colors, Colors everywhere! Next up, we had another beautiful hallway. It was simply lit up with multicolored light bulbs but nonetheless was the perfect location for a picture. 
The next room was a place to sit, take a deep breath, and soak in all the colors, and I did! Look how happy I am!
On to the next room! 
The next room we went had an automatic machine that printed pictures from Instagram seconds after they are uploaded with the hashtag #selfies. One image was printed every twelve seconds, using thermal receipt printer, and were pilled up all over the floor. This room kind of made me think where do pictures we post online end up? Maybe the floor like in this case.
Taking about #selfie.
Finally we arrived to the room with the swimming pool ball pit. This was probably the most talked about room because of the size and the pictures that were being shared on social media. I mean take a look for yourself. Who wouldn't want to swim and take pictures inside a large pool filled with bright yellow balls. It's aesthetically pleasing on so many levels! I mean take a look for yourself. 
These are probably some of favorite pictures ever! These pictures alone make the visit so worth it!
Lastly, once we got tired of swimming around and taking photos, we stop by the last kiosk and enjoy our last snack, this adorable ice cream! We had the options to choose from Vanilla, Banana, or a mix of both. We chose banana to fit in with the theme, and it was delicious! 
The Color Factory truly embodies what every millennial Instagrammer is looking for in a cool post. Not only does it have a ton of photo opportunities but it's actually fun and when I mean fun it's more than one can image. Best of all, there is something for all age groups. Some of my favorite experiences were the orange room, yellow ball pit pool, and the coloring room. Ricky's favorite part was the free ice cream cone at the end, no surprise there. I highly suggest checking it out if you live in New York or subscribe to their email so you know when it's coming to a city near you.

That’s it for this blog post! What did you think? Let me know below what's your favorite picture and what do you think about these interactive museums? I would love to know. As always, thanks for reading and see you next time!
