That Hotpoint is at the same place that the Boring-Brown Kenmore electric range, in the other ad, is at...


Now all you need is a matching METAL DESK and FILING CABINET...! Don't forget a WASTEBASKET, too!!!!

..just looks weak on an appliance. Not that I couldn't imagine using this color in a scheme for some room or other object,with other colors. As an oven color, ugh...especially on this one.

Dave - that reminds me of the institutional green classrooms, the drab teacher's desks, brown wood swivel chairs, and ugly colored file cabinets. Colors to sleep, day-dream, or puke by. :-) ha!

what can you do ?

actually, toast works well with some shades of violet pastel colors and ecru or a vanilla; I'd have to select the colors from my pastels or pencils and draw it, but there is harmony in all colors. It's just ....personal preferences and in this case, the colors may induce worse than puking. Now about toast - I like it with cinnamon!

I would be more willing to bet that the color/exposure problem is in the camera at this business or in the photo software. Both stoves are brown. A Hotpoint of that age would not be be available in Toast.

As the photographer told the lady showing too much flesh, "Lady you're already over-exposed and I haven't snapped the picture yet."

Keep in mind that Toast(Whirlpool/Kenmore) and Sand (GE/Hotpoint) were unshaded. They were available in the mid 80's.

Also Woodtone Brown (GE) and Woodland Brown (Hotpoint) were unshaded, and were offered from the mid 50's to early 60's.

I am beginning to think that GE/Hotpoint had some short run colors just like Whirlpool/Kenmore did with their Edged Sapphire/Shaded Slate in the late 60's.

Another possibility is this is out of a mobile home, and was a special color made under contract for the MH manufacturer.
