Avocado Baby!

I, too, grew up with a kitchen full of avocado appliances.

Remember this combo? Avocado, gold yellow and orange.
My family's kitchen also had groovy mod floral wallpaper in these colors.
Gosh I wish I had a picture of all that 60's goodness!

I decided to go alittle more vibrant on the orange and gold, and I added some
purple and lime green.  I am definitely a tertiary color girl!
I do have fond memories of the avocado kitchen growing up.
The family dinners, homework at the table, art projects,
you name it, the kitchen was the hub of activity.

I am finding with this color challenge that I have really opened my mind
to what "goes together."
It seems that window is smaller and smaller and I am open
to any color combinations.

So here is my avocado block.   
Can't wait to see what's next!!

Tertiary is my new favorite palette....purple, green, & orange....a bit more daring than primary! I need to shop for more orange!
