We all have a favorite color. One we love to wear or use in our house. We love it because it energizes us, or helps us to relax.
I love red. I wear it, use it in my home decor, paint my doors with it. It is a bold color and one full of energy. It's not a color I would paint my bedroom walls, but many people use it in dining rooms, and we have it in our basement, a space designed for activity.
I also love yellow. Not banana yellow or primary yellow, but soft yellows, ones the shade of sunshine and also yellows with a tinge of aged gold in them. Yellow quickly warms a room, invites you in.
I am drawn to many colors that I don't use as focal colors in my home - teal, blue, grey. I use them as accent colors though.
I love jewels tone colors and white and not surprisingly those are the colors that look the best on me.
I love blue and white together, but never use it in my home. I just sigh over the pages of Victoria magazine when they do their blue and white features, and I adore Dotsie's header over at Podso.
I tried blue and white out one summer in my living room and it just wasnt' me, though I wear blue and white. Who knows what the deal is? I have brought in some navy blue over the last year or so, maybe its just that I haven't hit on the right shade of blue for the house? Hmmm. I'll have to give that some thought.
I do love this navy and white together!
So what about you? Favorite colors or colors your drawn to, but maybe don't use in your home? I'd love to hear all about it!
