What's your favorite color and why?

  1. in the mood for some lighthearted talk...what's your favorite color? and why?

    i just took a personality quiz to determine what color i am and a big shocker i'm my favorite color, blue "blue has traditionally symbolized trust, solitude, and loyalty" yep that sounds like me.

    sometimes i'm warm blue or icy cool blue :imbar my room is calming, bedspread and sheets is blue :d oh yeah my eyes are too...

    (but i actually wear the color black in some way about everyday, it just looks nice on me, go figure :chuckle )

    Blue is very soothing to me; I also feel that monochromatic color schemes are very soothing (actually a tad boring, so I add a little color to it here and there)

    I like green. Have a lot of green in my house. Green is soothing to me, and earthy. My dining room and hallway is cool as a cucumber green.... I like the earthier, mustard yellow-greens, and dark forest greens.... my dining room table has a tile top, and the tiles are all hunter green with white grout.

    I'm trying to pick the perfect shade to paint my living room. I have a mask collection (started in Ecuador), and most of them are rustic, earthy colors so I want something with a little more oomph than the cafe au lait walls I have now.

    Wow, how many times have I used the term 'earthy' in this post?



    Oh, and my car is green.

    Funny you should mention it, I almost made "earthy" a choice...

    Hey, how about posting that test or linking to it, so the rest of us can take it?

    Well, since I'm feeling generous and it's my first polling...I will use my vote on orange for you :chuckle

    Edit: Nevermind, It won't let me vote either

    How about choosing a complementary color (just find your "green" and go to the opposite side of the color wheel)--it'd probably show up your green stuff really nicely?? ---just a thought

    Lausana, thanks for trying !!! I really did want to vote, the thingy doesn't like me.. or you either apparently ..lol:chuckle Well it's a nice thread anyway !

    I like two colors together -- turquoise blue and lime green. The two together look so happy!

    I figured it was an emode test!

    Ok, it says I'm brown. Ha! I do have cafe au lait walls after all. I do really like rich chocolate browns in my environment.

    Still like green best, though.

    Of course, green and brown go really well together anyway. Very... what's the word I'm looking for?.... EARTHY.
