San Francisco, CA: Color Factory

Yesterday my boyfriend and I took a quick trip to SFO to a pop-up “experience” I learned about through my employer. Color Factory is an interactive warehouse converted into different exhibits where color is the focus. Tickets took me 4 1/2 HOURS to buy and it was totally worth it. It was an Instagrammer’s dream! My only complaint was that I was definitely aware I was in a warehouse and the exhibits didn’t exactly blow me away like I expected them to. Regardless, it still provided excellent memories, and excellent pictures!


The entrance. I had a better photo opportunity but I was holding up the people in our group.

This rotating meringue wheel had charcoal lemonade on the other side! I don’t like meringue but I still took one. I have a hard time passing up free food.


The disco room had buttons on the wall labelled with lines from popular songs that fit the theme. I played a Michael Jackson song you should be able to easily guess.


The confetti room was sponsored by Method Home so one wall was covered in shelves of dish soap. This was my favourite room! Shane and I are professionals at looking terrible in pictures together, but I’ll be damned if this isn’t the best photo we’ve ever taken.

Does this room need an explanation?

Swatch your step!

This isn’t an installation, just a hallway between rooms. Still pretty though.


The ball pit was a load of fun. I was surprised to learn that 3 1/2 feet deep ball pits are hard to move through. I look at it as an unexpected workout!


We grabbed miniature ice cream cones on our way out. His was vanilla, mine was Japanese milk coffee. I thought they tasted the same, but the bf STRONGLY disagreed.

There were many more rooms than what I show here. But if we’re being honest, it was very dark and I’m not a good low-light photographer yet! If they extend their lease, I highly suggest purchasing tickets. I believe the artists behind Color Factory created an activity enjoyable for just about every age, and I’m so fortunate I was able to experience it myself.
