Colors can be representative of so many things. I read a book once about all the different colors that should be utilized in different rooms of the house. For instance, one wouldn’t want to paint a bedroom yellow, because that isn’t a soothing color helping for relaxing and going to sleep. A kitchen, though, that’s a good place to paint yellow.
A dear sweet woman, Ruth Pfeffer, who I recently served with on the 2020 Metastatic Advisory Committee for Living Beyond Breast Cancer and takes amazing pictures of birds, recently shared this list of colors and meanings with the committee:
White – Nurturing, calming
Purple – Serenity, Wisdom
Black – Powerful , Elegant
Pink – Relaxation, Love
Red – Vitality, Energy
Brown – Stabilizing, Resilience
Blue – Soothing. Harmony
Orange – Sociability, Confidence
Yellow – Cheerful, Creative
Green – Peace, Love
Gray – Harmony
I’ve wondered whether we’re drawn to colors based on the meaning unconsciously. For instance, for me, I love the color Purple, perhaps because I desire serenity and wisdom. I’m learning more and more about my own personality and what makes me tick and it makes perfect sense to me that Red is often associated with my personality.
Here’s an example …
So, now it’s your turn — what color do you like best? Is that color associated with adjectives that you feel describe you?
