Everyone has a favorite color, closely followed by other colors we prefer. I like pink. It's my favorite color. It's probably because I have a romantic nature. I also like green, a deep rich garnet, orange, turquoise and periwinkle. I like most colors after that except for purple. I am not real big on basic blue either, but that stems from something weird that happened when I was a kid.
Some days we wake up and we are in the mood for a certain color. Have you ever noticed that? You might have a desire to wear a specific color when you get out of bed. Maybe you go shopping later in the day and everything you are attracted to is that color too. I know the scientific reason this happens, but I won't demystify it for you...that would take the fun out of it.
I have been thinking about color lately. I recently read something that said the majority of people in the US have blue as a favorite color. This holds true for women and they are attracted to cool colors. I thought that was rather surprising. I would have thought that somehow women would prefer warm colors. I guess that makes me odd girl out since I am more drawn to warm colors.
Color plays a huge role in our lives. I am not sure we even realize it. We can make subconscious judgements about someone based on the color they are wearing when we first meet them. We choose the color of everything in our lives. The colors of things in our home influence how comfortable we feel there. Most of us try to create a cozy nest where we feel safe, secure and content. If your sofa was a different color would you still feel the same way?
Yesterday was definitely a rare blue day despite it not being a favorite color. I had a blue and white pin striped sundress on. I like it because it feels crisp and clean. The sky was a vibrant blue. At the end of the day my hands were blue. (You will find out in the next post why they were blue! *winks*) But if it hadn't been a blue day, I wonder if they would have been a different color?
So just out of curiosity, what is your favorite color? What was the color of your day? Did it have an influence on it in any way?
