I remember when I started this blog, a lot of people asked “why a burnt orange?”
To be honest, it is a colour that brightens up my day and looking back, I have used vibrant orange colours for significant events in my life, including my wedding reception. Stews and curries are orange, so is the light that shines from the ingeniously recycled Zimbabwean poly pipe lamps in my living room. The future is bright orange as well when it comes to the mobile network right?
I have even been asked by one of my regular tweeters whether I have burned oranges before. Not really, but have recently learned that oranges burn just as well as candles. I am yet to try this. Burnt Orange really does take me to a happy place, even when I think of the brilliant African soil, it has a bit of a burnt orange tone to it, hasn’t it?
Aah, but the real inspiration for my burnt orange came right from my very own kitchen, or rather my land lords. I cooked in this kitchen for 5 good years and shared the most wonderful dinner parties and laughs from the heart of my home. Hence began the journey from my burnt orange kitchen and looking forward to sharing much much more with you in 2012.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
