RDP: Colour

Colour My Life

I adore colourful things. I love the colours in nature, colourful fabrics and yarns, and the colours of man-made objects.

The colours in my home reflect that. I don’t mean that I want every room painted a different bright colour or a red splashback in the kitchen. I have some taste! Naomi and I call these houses “clown houses” when we see them in real estate listings but even worse to me are the houses with no colour at all. Lately, there has been a trend to having rooms entirely in grey, walls, floors, curtains and furniture. It washes any personality out of a house and if I had to live in one I’d have to fill it with colours immediately or I would go into a depression. Please don’t make me live in a grey house!

My living room.
