When we brought these apricots home from the farmers' market on Saturday, the first thing we thought, seeing them on the counter, was, "What pretty colors for decorating the kitchen..."
In fact, it reminds us of another color combination that we've frequently thought of as being great for a kitchen: the terracotta-orange clay courts of the French Open with the turquoise backdrop of the fences around them (sorry, we're big tennis fans). Every time we see that court on television in late May, we think we want to paint our house to look like center court.
We think we'd rely more on the cool bluish, greenish color and use the apricot as an accent. But doesn't it look so warm and inviting?
Whoever invented those cardboard baskets used to hold fruit at the market had a great eye—we love the color of them.
