Incorrect or non-standard usage, overuse etc.

We also have this dress in blue colour
I am going to repaint the kitchen as white colour
 

The problem

There is no need to add the word 'colour' after a colour word in English.

Sometimes when describing a complex colour we might say,

It is a sort of greeny-blue colour, but never when talking about simple colours

Standard English

We also have this dress in blue
I am going to repaint the kitchen white
