It's funny. The two colors that I used not to like much at all are suddenly everywhere in our house. One being turquoise and the other one being orange.
I used to hate turquoise and by now you know that shades of it are frequent in the Chez Larsson household. I'm still not keen on my birthstone version of it, that dense flat turquoise but I love all the aqua tones...
As a child in the 70's my room was orange and dark green. Two walls in each color. And dark versions of them too... My bedspread was dark green corduroy with wall hung corduroy pillows with center buttons. All accents where painted or sewn in orange by my mom... There was also an element of dark brown thrown into this lovely mix, like the heavily textured homespun-look curtains in beige and brown. Maybe that led to my hate of orange later on in life?!
Today though it's a fave and pops up more and more often around the house. I'm still not fond of peachy hues or when it's on the verge of going brown. I need my oranges vibrant. Oh, the photo above is for those of you who are wondering how I keep my whites so clean. Obviously I don't... not all the time anyway. That's Bonus making his mark on the home decor :)
Having so much orange around all of a sudden makes for a good Halloween background! Will post more on our decorations later on this week but I prepped by buying some pumpkins today. Apparently Martin and Wille have plans for them already. If I'm good maybe I get to make a stylish polka dot one...
A color you won't get to see around our house though is purple. Not my color at all! It's THE color at the moment apparently but I don't see myself ever having that in our house. Do kind of like lavender... and purple's not far off so... but no. Or maybe?
What are your favourite colors and which one's can't you stand?
