I remember back in 1977 when, as part of a married couple, I purchased my first house which was the ubiquitous high set timber home of those days in Queensland. There were two main colour schemes for the kitchen benchtops and they were orange and lime and I had the orange. Consequently all my kitchenware was also orange including some of my Tupperware.
My lounge room was also adorned with orange bits and pieces. Yes, that was the 1970s. Fifteen years ago I moved into my current home which had a very pale pink colour scheme so I filled it with ‘pinkish’ accessories with the odd splash of purple.
That colour scheme lasted for many years until about four years ago I became heartily sick of pink and purple and decided to do some major renovations like ripping up my carpet and replacing it with lovely large ceramic floor tiles. It was also time for a new colour scheme so I concentrated on green downstairs as I still had a couple of nice mats which had pink and green in them. Green is also very ‘cool’ and easy on the eye.
And to top it off, this is what I bought yesterday…
A brand new Kia Sportage Si Premium in the gorgeous colour Techno Orange!!!
My little red Hyundai Excel that I’d had since new will be 17 years old in June this year and although she only has 76,000 kms on the clock I felt it was time to upgrade from a manual to an automatic. I went to a couple of car dealers and most of the colours they were offering were either white, black, grey, silver and red. Boring!!! I want ORANGE!! so I persevered and found my ultimate orange car.
I’m happy 🙂 Hopefully I’ll pick her up at the end of the coming week.
Do you have a favourite colour that you’re obsessed with?
Until next time…
