Hello colour lover!
Happy New Year!
2023 has drawn to a close so I thought I’d take a peek at which were the most read blogs for 2023. Here are the top five blogs loved by you.
Going from 5 to 1, they are…
Number 5. When a pink front door lands you in trouble
Imagine one day deciding to paint your front door pink and then finding it’s landed you in hot water with your neigbours and local council?
That’s exactly what happened to a woman in Edinburgh Scotland who has faced a lengthy battle over the colour of her front door.

Number 4. On the Colour Couch with fashion and textile designer Dame Zandra Rhodes
If the name Zandra Rhodes may sound familiar to you, it’s because she has been a well-known name for many decades. Zandra emerged in the late 1960s and early 1970s as part of the “Swinging London” fashion scene, which challenged traditional fashion norms.
It was an absolute honour to be able to chat to her about her love of colour and her iconic pink hair.

Number 3. How the colour pink got its name
Have you ever seen a colour called light red? It even sounds weird doesn’t it.
That’s because light red has its own colour name – pink. And pink is the most recent basic colour term to come into existence in the English language.

Number 2. 5 fun facts about the colour blue
We look at the world’s favourite colour and why it is the rarest in nature. The cultural significance of blue for one town where every building is blue, as well as the psychology behind this hue.
