Green House Effect
In last week’s Brighton-focused Five to View, I featured a pea-green house as the first property.
Granted, it might be a shade too lurid to suit all tastes, but I think it’s a great example of the many brightly coloured homes that are dotted around Brighton.
And poor old green, bless it, was at the bottom of the house colour pecking order with typical occupants earning low salaries in unskilled jobs and driving second hand cars.
In contrast, inhabitants of blue houses typically earned the top salaries, drove the best cars and often had domestic help such as nannies and cleaners.
Looking at the list to see if there was a category for the peachy-pink façade boasted by our house I found, to my dismay, that it came second lowest in the list.
However, resident of unsuccessful, low-earning pink house or not, I still have the mental capacity to know that this fun survey is best taken with a pinch of salt!
Here’s what you’re supposed to earn, according to the colour of your home:

***Can I just point out that I have never in my life seen an orange house…does such a thing even exist?
