Brings You a Colour From the Past...............
Today's Colour Story is a throwback to British Racing Green, a true colour of nostalgia. Even writing this today I am smiling as I look at these inspiration photos, and how they were in fact rights of passage through history. I know when visiting in Britain you will see many Green Doors, a proud welcome from the cottage to the stately doors in London.
Its also marked in painted walls of libraries, the smoking rooms of grand estates a colour associated with strength in sport form horse to hound - its a deep colour. Also in many aspects of furniture you will find British Green in leather such as in parliamentary chamber seating - another reference to knowledge in colour. It also finds comfort in leather furniture of libraries and lounge setting rooms. I know from experience that sitting in these armchairs is truly a trip worth sitting upon! There is something nostalgic about sitting in 'auld' green leather and possibly sipping a scotch, to celebrate the passage.
British Racing Green is now doubtingly associated with Freedom, and connected to the classic MG sports car an easily association of the colour. Close your eyes... just imagine driving through the British Countryside on a twisting winding road, head scarf on and wind in your face! Smashin'ly Brilliant!
Throw Back to in the day when I in fact I slugged paint - a few guys asked me for this colour, noting it as British MG Racing Green. Curious, I would inquire for what purpose and the response,
- The Front Door! Of course :)
But also with the evolution of Greens we see in the motorcycle. From the deep greens in the army courier bikes, postage bikes to refined colour presence in Racing Green coloured bike tanks even today.
The feeling of anticipation, adventure, curiosity and growth in new paths continues.
So from yesterdays Throw Back Racing Green to today fresh hues, embrace that spirit of
Racing Green that brings Freedom to your heart.........
